SJB plans to form Samagi Sandhanaya

The political alliance formed under Sajith Premadasa before the General Election, the Samagi Jana Balavegaya (SJB) is planning to recruit more parties to form another political coalition under the name Samagi Sandhanaya (Unity Alliance).

The SJB which mainly consists of breakaway members from the UNP will become a member of the new coalition Samagi Sandhanaya, according to SJB National Organizer Tissa Attanayake.

Attanayake stated yesterday that several new political parties will join the alliance with SJB in the coming days. No names can be mentioned as discussions are still ongoing, he said.

“The discussions are taking place, we have approached several party leaders regarding the new alliance and meetings will take place with the parties next week. The SJB was formed as a matter of urgency due to the Parliamentary Elections, but now we have decided to form this alliance which will be a much broader coalition than the SJB.”

Attanayake said parties such as the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) and others who joined SJB will remain within the new alliance as well.

He added this alliance will be formed by end September.
