Mahinda says “wait and see” when asked about new political party

Mahinda MRFormer President Mahinda Rajapaksa says no one has been recruited to a new political party nor has the joint opposition formed such a party.

Speaking to reporters after visiting Parliamentarian Udaya Gamanpila at the Welikada remand prison today, Rajapaksa denied claims that some members of the joint opposition are to join the Government.

When asked when the new political party of the joint opposition will be formed, he said the public will need to wait and see.

He also said that the Government is taking political revenge on the opposition by arresting joint opposition members. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Former President MR has lots of political knowledge and experience, especially through the brutal war and recent events. He has learned what he must do, and mustn’t do. If he comes back, he will be the greatest leader in South Asia. We must give him a chance. We can’t afford to lose his talents and skills. The inexperienced leaders will take time to gain similar knowledge and experience, meantime the foreign powers will destroy this country to achieve their interests as they had done for the last three decades. President MR has won the war, even the powerful West got surprised. President MR can do impossibles. I believe that former President MR is going to surprise many of you again..
