Discussions continue to get Mahinda to agree!
Meanwhile, the Joint Opposition leaders are currently in discussion regarding the proposal brought by the group of 15 to field Maithripala Sirisena as the next Presidential candidate and Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister.
However, so far no decisive conclusion has been reached regarding the division of positions in a new government and as the JO leaders are of a strong stand that a presidential candidate should be fielded from the SLPP.
