The SLPP and affiliated parties will contest the upcoming general elections under the Chair symbol, leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya - Udaya Gammanpila said.

He said this at a media briefing held at the party headquarters in Pitakotte.

He said that all parties supporting the SLPP have discussed contesting the upcoming general election as a coalition with the condition that they would contest under the Chair symbol.
According to Gammanpila, those who claim that the SLPP will contest the general election under the lotus bud symbol are unaware of the agreement with the other parties or they are those with personal agendas, he said adding that in order to prevent any misunderstanding, the SLPP leadership should notify all their supporters regarding the agreement reached with other parties supporting them.
