The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) today denied reports of a split in the party and insisted that it will contest under the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) at the next election.
SLFP General Secretary Anura Priyadharshana Yapa, speaking to reporters, said that some are attempting to give the impression that there is a split in the SLFP.
However he insisted that the SLFP is united and that all the SLFP members who are now in Parliament will receive nominations to contest the next Parliament elections.
Meanwhile, UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayantha said that the UPFA has not discussed forming a National Government if it wins the Parliament elections.
Premajayantha said that while the UNP has been saying it wants to form a National Government after the next Parliament polls, the UPFA has not agreed to such an idea. (Colombo Gazette)
