President Sirisena has sought the views of the allies of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) on the modalities of contesting the upcoming elections to the local authorities.

However, most of the UPFA allies boycotted the meeting saying they had huge policy differences with the UPFA faction serving in the government.

The Democratic Left Front (DLF) led by Vasudeva Nanayakkara, the Mahajana Eksath Peramuna (MEP) led by Dinesh Gunawardane, the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP) and the Sri Lanka Mahajana Party (SLMP) did not attend the meeting and informed UPFA Secretary and Minister, Mahinda Amaraweera that such a meeting would not serve the intended purpose.

Meanwhile, representatives of the Communist Party (CP), the Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC), the Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) and the National Congress (NC) attended the meeting.

CP leader D.E.W. Gunasekara said the President only sought the views of the political parties on the upcoming elections. (Kelum Bandara)

    This person has proved enough and more that he cant be trusted. His words promises are hollow and don't carry any weight. We should not be surprised if he tie the note with the man whom he proclaimed that he would be under 6 feet below the ground if the latter had won the election.

    President Sirisena is so disparate he will make a deal even with the devil, so one need not be shocked if he does a deal with Mahinda Rajapakse and save Mahinda.
