The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has decided to work with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the Parliamentary elections this year.
The SLFP Central Committee met with former President and SLFP leader Maithripala Sirisena today.
At the meeting it was decided that the party must work with the President at the election.
The SLFP Central Committee also agreed that 2/3rd majority must be secured in Parliament through the election.
The SLFP had supported Rajapaksa at the Presidential election last year.
SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekera said that the SLFP will ensure President Rajapaksa is able to have a stable Government for the next five years.
As a result, the SLFP will work with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) at the upcoming Parliamentary elections. (Colombo Gazette)
