20-party alliance to contest under ‘flower bud’ symbol! Featured

The joint opposition has decided to contest the election for local government institutions as the ‘Ekabaddha Podujana Peramuna’ with the ‘flower bud’ as its symbol, a senior JO activist said.

According to him, more than 20 political parties have extended their support and signed agreements, under which the new front will field candidates for all LG bodies.

Ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa will chair its inaugural public rally at Vincent Dias Stadium in Badulla on December 04, starting at 2.00 pm, said the JO activist.

Several ministers and MPs in the SLFP too, are supporting the new front and will join it in due course, he added.
