SLFP Central Committee to meet tonight!

A Central Committee meeting of the SLFP is scheduled to be held at 8.00 pm today (24) under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena.

According to the General Secretary of the SLFP Duminda Dissanayake, the 16 members who left the government previously, are also expected to attend today’s meeting.

The meeting will be held at the President’s official residence.

It is also noted that MP Kumara Welgama will also attend this meeting representing the Joint Opposition.

Previously, there was speculation that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa would attend this meeting, but so far his attendance has not been confirmed.

Today’s meeting would determine the future of the SLFP within the good governance government and a decision is expected to be taken on whether the SLFP would remain in the government or not.
