United National Front party leaders to meet President

United National Front (UNF) party leaders are to meet President Maithripala Sirisena tonight for key talks.

UNF member and Minister of National Coexistence Dialogue and Official Languages Mano Ganeshan said that crucial current issues will be discussed at the meeting.

It was reported over the weekend that the UNF led by the United National Party (UNP) is considering forming its own Government after December 31.

Well informed sources said that the UNF is unhappy with the recent actions of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) which have been fueled by the joint opposition. Sources said that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and President Maithripala Sirisena had also met and discussed the political situation in the country.

Several SLFP members have been verbally attacking the UNP despite both parties being in the coalition Government.

It was reported that some Ministers and Deputy Ministers of the UNP have said they would resign if the UNP continues to remain a coalition partner of the SLFP. (Colombo Gazette)
