Chandrika, Welgama attend SLFP convention

Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga and joint Opposition (JO) Parliamentarian Kumara Welgama attended the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Convention in Colombo today.

The SLFP convention took place at the Sugathadasa Stadium in the presence of President and SLFP leader Maithripala Sirisena.

Kumaratunga and Sirisena have not been in good terms in recent times, especially after President Sirisena reestablished a close relationship with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Meanwhile, Kumara Welgama has so far refused to accept the decision of the Joint Opposition to back former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the next Presidential elections. (Colombo Gazette)
