SLFP will set up more Governments – Maithripala

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), which was formed in 1951, will form several more governments, Maithripala Sirisena, its leader, stated issuing a statement for the 69th anniversary of the party.

He said that it is a great pleasure for him to recall the names of late Prime Minister S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike and late Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike, who dedicated a lot to strengthen the party.

The SLFP was founded by the 4th Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, late S.W.R.D Bandaranaike in 1951, and since then, it has been one of the two largest parties in the Sri Lanka’s politics.

Sirisena recalled all party members who dedicate their lives for the party.

The SLFP has been doing a yeomen service for the country and its people during the seven decades since its inception while representing the leftist force.

The party never hesitates to take up responsibility of protecting national task and duty while always uplifting the patriotism, nationalism, the SLFP leader in his statement said.

When Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa was the party leader, the party wiped out the brutal terrorism from the motherland, he noted.

Maithripala thanked the voters for electing 14 SLFP candidates as MPs at the last General Election.
