Amaraweera wants SLPP to contest under UPFA

UPFA general secretary Mahinda Amaraweera expresses the hope that the SLPP will contest the upcoming general election under the UPFA.

Speaking to journalists in Kandy yesterday (11), he said the president and the prime minister would have the final say in deciding if the SLPP would contest together with the SLFP or not.

According to him, the election will take place under the old electoral system.

Proposal to contest separately

Meanwhile, lankacnews website says there is a proposal for the two parties to contest separately.

If they field candidates together, many who are hoping to contest from the two parties will lose the opportunity, it has been pointed out.

They can sign an agreement after the election to form a national government.

However, talks are still ongoing for the two parties to contest under a single front.
