President Maithripala Sirisena says he will work to ensure the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) wins the next Local Government (LG) elections.
This is despite the SLFP and the UNP working together in the current National unity Government.
Meanwhile Fisheries Minister and SLFP member Mahinda Amaraweera insisted that there is no split in the SLFP.
He says no one in the SLFP has so far spoken of working with another alliance at the LG polls.
There have been reports that some SLFP members will contest under a new alliance formed by the joint opposition at the LG polls. (Colombo Gazette)
