He said this at a press briefing held at Temple Trees yesterday.
Meanwhile, internal SLFP sources said that several SLFP members would definitely be joining the government within the next few days.
According to a senior MP, this group is not joining the government with the hope of receiving ministerial positions, but due to the electoral organiser issues that would crop up in the future between the SLFP and UPFA.
They feel that if they remain as SLFP members and contest the upcoming General Election under the SLPP, their political journey would be in jeopardy.
However, an SLFP –MP had told the ‘Mawbima’ newspaper that every effort would be taken to retain the SLFP members within the party.
