The Joint Opposition, in response to an invitation extended by SLFP General Secretary Duminda Dissanayake to join hands to contest the upcoming elections, has put forward conditions to accept it.

Forty two Joint Opposition MPs sent a written response with these conditions outlined. The resignation from the unity government with the United National Party (UNP), the containment of the rising cost of living, taking a stand against the current constitutional proposals, curbing the present crime wave involving the underworld, standing against the alienation of national assets, honouring the position taken by the Maha Sangha against the constitutional proposals are among the conditions placed by it to team up with the SLFP to contest the elections together.

Also, the Joint Opposition urged the SLFP to take action against those responsible for the Central Bank bond scam irrespective of their positions.

MPs Dulip Wijeysekara, Arundika Fernando and Priyankara Jayaratne who recently joined the Joint Opposition are also among the 42 MPs who signed this letter to be sent to Minister Dissanayake. (Kelum Bandara)

    Sadly what the SLFP, Maithripala and Duminda don't understand is that there still is a majority who clearly know that the JO are a bunch of looters and thieves. The SLFP have got sucked into the myth that there is an anti government wave in the country. At election time, the JO will learn a bitter lesson. People dont support racist, trouble making, politicians anymore. If the SLFP wants, they can go it alone and win.

    The JO should go alone and to see the people feeling towards them. If I am sure they will get may be 10% of the vote casted.

    SLFP's recognition of JO itself shoe that they do not represent does not know honesty and integrity

    This letter seems to come straight from the madhouse

    Actually it should be the other way around . SLFP should submit the conditions should the JO wants to join and support the SLFP .

    Better stay away from SLFP, don't disgrace the party anymore. even if you'll not there also the SLFP can win a election, all Corrupt ministers are with you.

    MR was sent home by the masses in January and he brought defeat to his party in August. Under these circumstances what is the purpose of going behind him or inviting him to work with SLFP? And he is promoting another party!
