Eight parties complain to Mahinda about Basil Featured

Eight parties within the Joint Opposition have complained to Mahinda Rajapaksa that Basil Rajapaksa is not being fair to them in the nomination process.

The complaints were made by the Mahajana Eksath Peramuna, Jathika Nidahas Peramuna, Pivithuru Hela Urumaya, Democratic Left Front, Communist party, Lanka Sama Samaja Party and the Desha Vimukthi Janatha party.

The parties that complained alleged that in allocating nominations, Basil Rajapaksa had allocated a greater quota to the flower bud team, being unfair to the other parties.

However, upon being notified of this situation, Mahinda Rajapaksa had appointed party seniors such as Kumara Welgama and C.B. Ratnayake to resolve this issue.

They had commenced an investigation last Friday at district level to determine if there were any unfairness in the nomination process.
