SLFP preparing to form a new Government

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) is preparing to form a new Government, SLFP leader and former President Maithripala Sirisena said today.

He said that the SLFP is carrying out a program to strengthen the party.

Sirisena said that the SLFP will form a broad alliance and invite others to join them.

“In a few months we hope to make the SLFP a strong political party in the country,” Sirisena told reporters.

He also said that the SLFP opposes the delay to hold Provincial Council elections.

The former President said that the SLFP stands for holding elections on time.

The SLFP is currently part of the ruling alliance led by the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).

However, there has been a deepening rift between the SLFP and the SLPP in recent times. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. No matter who comes to power, as South Asians you will not progress. Your mindset will not allow you to prosper. Think about who killed Gandhi, also think who assassinated talented leaders during Asia’s longest brutal civil war in Sri Lanka. Why do you think that Modi (he was known for making tea) leading India and unqualified person becomes a finance minister in Sri Lanka? I really don’t think that you are evolved enough to understand your predicament.

  2. What we have is a constant recycling of the same crooks and thieves, at every election. When will a credible alternative party of qualified candidates emerge ? Surely the electorate must realise the current political system cannot continue.

    If Gota is to salvage his political future, he has to either end the corrupt activities of his party, or end the careers of the “maggots” in his party.

  3. What a joke coming from Maithripala Sirisena who tried to make Mahinda Rajapaksa prime minister during CoupeLk!

    Maithripala Sirisena has no political future after sabotaging his own government and being part of CoupeLk.

    SLFP will have to make Kumara Welgama the party leader if they are to have any chance in future elections.
