UPFA to have talks with alliance members to settle issues

Mahinda AmaraweeraThe United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) is to have talks with its alliance members to iron out differences.

UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera said that he has already had informal discussions with several leaders of the political parties in the alliance.

He says most of those he met agreed on the need to keep the UPFA united and not allow it to fall apart.

Amaraweera said that he hopes to have formal talks with the political party leaders in the UPFA soon to iron out differences.

Among those he hopes to meet are the leaders of the Mahajana Eksath Peramuna, EPDP and the Communist Party. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. All these problems started with Sirisena joining UNP due to greediness to power and did nothing to country except taking revenge from Rajapaksa family. UNP was a losing party and never had any sign of winning in near future, but Sirisena gave the lifeline to UNP by giving ministries to UNP losers; now UFPA is getting weaker. Without Sirisena resigning from UFPA, the party will go downhill. It was obvious in recent meeting of joint opposition, that Sirisena is the main reason for division in UFPA, because he holds hands with UNP but calling him as SLFP. He has to stop this doble game and leave the UFPA, then others will unite to a strong level.

  2. President Maithripala Sirisena has proved that he is not a strong leader. Not only for Sri Lanka but for the SLFP as well. He is surrendering to Mahinda Rajapakse and his illegal actions. Where is the Maithripala all the Sri Lankan’s voted for? Maithripala promised that he will divulge the names of the “Kudu Karayas”, he said he will take into the custody of all the thieves and murderers. Now Maithripala is trying to do a deal to save his neck. Its time Maithripal delivers what he promised and take Mahinda, his Sons, his Brothers and his team into custody without illegally protecting them.
