Group of 16 recognizes Mahinda’s leadership Featured

The group of 16 SLFP MPs who have left the government has decided to ally with the joint opposition as an extensive alliance, including to contest alongside the JO at future elections.

The agreement came at their talks with ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday (23), which Susil Premajayantha later described to the media as being very successful.

Premajayantha said that of their group, only Anura Priyadarshana Yapa was absent at the discussion as he was not well.

Previously, SLPP chairman Prof. G.L. Peiris told the media on May 21 their doors were open for the SLFP MPs who had left the government, and that they should recognize the leadership of Mahinda Rajapaksa.
