Making a firm statement yesterday, President Maithripala Sirisena said the SLFP has decided to contest the forthcoming election jointly with the Sri Lanka Podujana Permuna (SLPP) and warned that district and electoral organisers who obstructed this process would be removed from their positions.

 Addressing an electoral organisers meeting at the President’s residence, the President also warned organisers who offered to join and strengthen the government to do so after quitting the SLFP.  

A group of SLFP organisers had objected to the President’s proposal and demanded a sole SLFP programme.  

They had expressed their displeasure to the party general secretary and some senior party organisers. Meanwhile, the party organisers meeting had come to an end before the scheduled time. 

District and electoral organisers, executive committee members, provincial council chief ministers and provincial governors were among the participants. 

Responding to inquiries, Party General Secretary Prof. Rohana Lashman Piyadasa said the President wanted to confine the number of electoral organisers to one per electorate.  

Prof. Lakshman also said some managerial assignment would be entrusted to district organisers and new organisers will be appointed to vacant electorates. (Ranjan Kasthuri)

    VJ Tuesday, 25 December 2018 11:29 AM

    But there are rouges, so he must join them.

    Lokka Tuesday, 25 December 2018 09:00 PM

    C.K. Lankaputhra Tuesday, 25 December 2018 04:29 AM

    End of SLFP. 2nd Old Party of Sri Lanka with Bandaranayaka crest.

    Panda Tuesday, 25 December 2018 04:45 AM

    People don't care party we want the person who contest and the results should make a good change.

    TJ Tuesday, 25 December 2018 04:46 AM

    You must find a way hide your unpopularity.

    Jude Tuesday, 25 December 2018 05:52 AM

    DON'T think SLPP like the idea !!!???

    Leo Tuesday, 25 December 2018 06:03 AM

    What’s going on? According to SLPP there are no members in that party, Let’s see how general public respond to Insane Sirisena.

    Ghost Tuesday, 25 December 2018 06:46 AM

    This man will go down in history as the great Shame of Sri Lankar!!!

    Abey Tuesday, 25 December 2018 07:01 AM

    Dear Mr President, the way you are going, you can even beat Machiavelli who has often been called the father of modern political science, IF ONLY YOU DON’T LIE SO MUCH. Please listen to the speeches you made since starting you campaign as the common candidate. I don’t think there is a man in world history who can beat that. Trump is nothing. Sure you can beat Machiavelli. Good luck to our Nation.

    Rohantha Tuesday, 25 December 2018 07:22 AM

    There is no one in the pohottuwa these days no! . Why contest with it.

    Hector Abeygunawardena Tuesday, 25 December 2018 07:43 AM

    A President should be devoid of party politics.Adding insult to injury taxpayer fundedPresidential Secretariat or any otherestablishment should not be used for political purposes.That is why SriLankan politics is stinking.

    Concerned Voter Tuesday, 25 December 2018 07:50 AM

    End of SLFP, MS knows the constitutional blunder he has done to the country. Better resign from the SLFP party chairmanship and take membership from SLPP like what MR, Namal and the rest who have already obtained membership and say they just gave application for membership.

    Ansar from usa Tuesday, 25 December 2018 07:55 AM

    Mr. president as a citizen of Sri Lanka I just want to ask you ..you said if Ranil comes again you will not stay even one hour. Where is that promise you made to public.. people of this country and international community already lost their hopes on you. So no need to waste your time as people will not be choosing you again. Since you did not keep the faith

    Jude Tuesday, 25 December 2018 08:02 AM

    SLFP in a state of drowning man will clutch at a straw situation !!??

    Jude Tuesday, 25 December 2018 08:03 AM

    SLFP in Crossroads again !!??

    JK hatton Tuesday, 25 December 2018 11:03 AM

    You must now think of quieting politics for false promise

    Leel Tuesday, 25 December 2018 11:27 AM

    He may think that SLPP will support his 2nd term presidential ambitions.

    karthik Tuesday, 25 December 2018 11:28 AM

    Why not MS go for a full medical check up.

    Samson Tuesday, 25 December 2018 11:40 AM

    SLFP has been killed so you have to align with pohottuwa

    Sunil Tuesday, 25 December 2018 11:43 AM

    Whatever happens the SLFP will suffer a landslide defeat if Sirisena has anything to do with the next election.He has lied and deceived people so much that unless Sri Lankans have lost respect for morality altogether,they must never vote for any party Sirisena is connected with. He is not a mad man he is Crook by birth born in a low family with NIL morals.We do not need people like this telling us how we should use our sovereign vote.

    Mandy Tuesday, 25 December 2018 12:06 PM

    So he is Crook by birth born in a low family with NIL morals. How would you describe MR then ?

    nimal Tuesday, 25 December 2018 11:57 AM

    What a huge achievement of My3 to bring a monstrous SLFP to minor SLFP which cannot stand on its own. what a pity.....

    ravin Tuesday, 25 December 2018 01:08 PM

    Over to you THE SRI LANKA COLLEGE OF PSYCHIATRISTS.

    Karu Tuesday, 25 December 2018 01:13 PM

    Going behind the potuwa to retain the putuwa. The latest trend in Sri Lankan politics is Masters becoming peons.

    Nihal Tuesday, 25 December 2018 09:13 PM

    MS SIR WE DON'T WANT ANY POHOTTUWA OR SLFP OR UNP ALL ARE MAKING MONEY FOR THEMSELVES

    Lamb Wednesday, 26 December 2018 10:54 AM

    Everywhere that MR went MS is sure to go-baaaaah!!!
