SLFP announces position on Prez election today

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) led by President Maithripala Sirisena is to announce its position on the upcoming Presidential Election today, party sources said.

SLFP sources told Daily News that more last minute internal discussions were scheduled yesterday before a final decision is taken. During a late night meeting on Saturday, the SLFP Central Committee vested the power to decide the party’s stance at the upcoming Presidential Election with party leader President Maithripala Sirisena.

The SLFP held several rounds of talks with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) over the past several weeks to come to an agreement to form an alliance. However, the meetings ended without a final decision. The SLFP was to announce its decision yesterday, but it was postponed for today.

SLFP Media Spokesman Weerakumara Dissanayake said the SLFP organizers and local government members have asked for a meeting with the President to express their viewpoints.
