Polls chief informed SLFP will put forward candidate

The National Elections Commission has been informed that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) will put forward a candidate at the upcoming Presidential elections.

SLFP spokesman Weerakumara Dissanayake said that SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekera had communicated this to the National Elections Commission.

The SLFP has not yet named a candidate and has been in talks with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) on contesting as an alliance.

However there has been speculation the SLFP may contest the Presidential elections independently and not with the SLPP.


  1. SLFP being the 2nd largest party in Srilanka and contested all past presidential elections and for the last 31 years the president of Srilanka is from SLFP it is a must that SLFP should contest 2020 presidential election
    since Ranil and Ravi is having a deal with Mahinda and Sajith is being not given nomination from DNF SLFP can nominate Sajith as their presidential candidate Ranil and Ravi can sit in the opposition peacfully and no bond scam case
