The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) will contest any forthcoming election in a new alliance, said the party’s senior vice president, Prof. Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa.
“They would not have won this presidential election without our 1.7 – 1.8 million votes. Even so, this government has not yet begun a broad dialogue with the fraternal parties for more than two years. When those dialogues broke down, the life span of the government began to decline. We say that our past experience is the same and that our present experience is going in the same direction.
The fraternal parties are even going to a separate court as they have not received justice. There is a political complexity in the country.
In this situation, the SLFP is practically organizing the people at the village level and at the grassroots level. Whatever the forthcoming election, we are working to get the SLFP to come forward through a new alliance. ”
Prof. Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa stated this addressing a media briefing held in Kandy yesterday (06).
