The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) says it is willing to continue talks with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).
SLPP Chairman, Professor G.L Peiris says the SLPP has so far had seven rounds of talks with the SLFP.
He says the talks are focused on defeating the United National Party.
Professor G.L Peiris says while SLPP members are keen to continue discussions with the SLFP, they also want to ensure some conditions are met.
He says the talks should not focus on the party symbol as the focus now is on the Presidential election and not Parliament election.
Professor G.L Peiris says the SLPP symbol is a winning symbol in the minds of the public so that symbol must remain.
However, he says at a Parliamentary election a different symbol can be considered. (Colombo Gazette)
