Maithri - MR meet again Featured

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says he will hold a discussion with President Maithripala Sirisena to finalize the issue regarding the logo of the new alliance,which is to be formed between the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).

As the President is a senior politician who is open minded about practical politics, he said he would discuss the matter with him and solve the issue.

In the meantime, there has already been an agreement that Presidential candidate of SLPP, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, will sign the MoU between the two parties if the talks between the SLPP and the SLFP were successful.

The President has appointed Mahinda Amaraweera and Lasantha Alagiyawanna to discuss the matter with Gotabhaya separately, SLFP sources say.
