"I will contest the next election only from the UPFA led by the SLFP", stated former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to the committee which was now attempting to unite the SLFP, sources said.

These sources also indicated that the former President had not requested for the candidacy of the premier. He had stated so to this committee when they met yesterday at his residence in Mirihana.

The former President had reiterated that he had no intention of splitting up the party.

Speaking on this matter, MP Dilan Perera said that the meeting was very cordial and certain proposals put forward to the former President were accepted by him.

This committee was scheduled to meet in the coming days once again to discuss the repercussions of the meeting with the former president and then meet with President Maithripala Sirisena thereafter.(Ajantha Kumara Agalakada)

    Far better than the dogs currently running the country!

    Poor Lokku Saturday, 27 June 2015 09:34 PM

    Dear Mahinda Mama, you and your family together with all your friends made enough money. Today we are seeing democratic rule under Maithiripala Srisena. If you love your country please, I beg you, leave our people,s President to run the country democratically.

    Why does people have this much hunger for power, these kind of things happen usually in the African countries. Honestly i thought our people were smart , but unfortunately our people our blind and pathetic. IF you lost be honorable retire and enjoy the perks. Sigh man

    Intention is very clear that UPFA Secretary will sign your nomination and once you are elected with mamouth preferential votes and majority in the parliament MS has no option in slotting you as Prime Minister.

    mohamed Friday, 26 June 2015 01:18 PM

    dont talk regarding his return to politics becasue this man is wosrt power greedy in hte planet so far, (chi nodekin )

    Jayanath Weerasinghe Friday, 26 June 2015 08:54 AM

    SLFP without former strongman, comes first. He is a man not to be trusted, His actions shows, from the day he left the office of the President, he undermined every progressive action taken by our beloved President Maithripla Sirisena. As a SLFPer, party of my father and grand father, I will never trust this dreaded politician, who put his family interest first and he nation second. For him remember what I say; "End justifies the Means"

    Slap Friday, 26 June 2015 01:38 PM

    Hurry to come back !!! MR will drop from 58 to 45 (or below). contesting from SLFP is the only way MR can force the SLFP voters to support MR. If MR come from another party like MY3, then MR will achieve 25 (Best !!). Wonder how MR will campaign without "free" money from the treasury like before (without CTB busess, ITN/Rupahavini, mudalalis, allocations from government departments). and UNP using all the resources, now at its disposal !!

    jayaweera Friday, 26 June 2015 01:48 PM

    Please do not bring him back into parliament. He messed up right royally and he cannot unwind all that.He has no democracy or good governance in his blood or brains!Better keep him retired and investigate if he can be brought to court.

    J Palitha Friday, 26 June 2015 09:45 PM

    Bubble Banda Friday, 26 June 2015 09:47 PM

    Shameless man, you being a President of our country is prepared to be a ordinary member, what a stupid you are.

    Bubble Banda Friday, 26 June 2015 10:17 AM

    de silva Friday, 26 June 2015 10:37 AM

    You were dismissed by the majority of this country because they thought that you should retire and stay at home and not to meddle with politics anymore.So please stay at home or go to some Bawana classes.

    Sarwan Friday, 26 June 2015 05:04 PM

    MR wil only contest again if he can be a criminal with the criminals of SLFP led UPFACan any one tell me one country where the leftists in power did not plunder the people and became dictators?.

    channa Friday, 26 June 2015 05:13 PM

    Mason Friday, 26 June 2015 11:25 AM

    A movement is gathering momentum to obtain one million signatures to keep away those tainted by bribery and corruption from being nominated to contest elections. You will be surely be on top of the corruption list and therefore NOT granted nomination.Good bye !

    susantha Friday, 26 June 2015 05:20 PM

    This is the biggest riminal and corrupt Politician in entire world,even worse than Mugabe as Rajitha Senaratne say she will destroy the entire Democracy with his two criminally,it is Disaster for the current President to even allow him to contest the elections as SLFP candidate once a precedence is created all the corrupt politicians like Pachawansa ,Yapa,t,B Ekanayake Duminda silva }Ranathunga ,LOKUGamage the Ape Bandid will all enter Politics what a disgrace SLFP,is this what you want MR Prasident A Bloody disgrace

    Bandara Friday, 26 June 2015 05:22 PM

    You have failed to understand the current political dynamics of the country. He has gained more popularity compared to 8th of January. This is to say his voter base if 5.8 million at this point.

    George Friday, 26 June 2015 07:39 AM

    YES THATS WHAT WE WANT ...please bear four things in mind ...1. Family comes first ..i mean SLFP family2. The retirement of RW ( unp ) 3. Out classing the Roller Ball Looking for opportunity RH( slmc ) 4 throwing BSS into the garbage dump...GOOD LUCK ..MR sky is the limit for you

    mario Friday, 26 June 2015 05:23 PM

    He has full immunity nothing can be done to him. executive presidint.

    alisten Syndey Friday, 26 June 2015 05:34 PM

    Clear intention, After the election he will buy MPS from UNP and SLFP ,most of the politicians earn money and so they can do under MR government. So Ranil will lose majority, under new PM powers he will run and ruin the country. All depends on how MS runs his party.Not an easy solution.

    Yan Friday, 26 June 2015 11:49 AM

    Arrest MR and hang him immediately....

    SAM Friday, 26 June 2015 12:00 PM

    This man is trying to gangbang the country and the citizen again. Chasse the bugger to wilderness.

    achari Friday, 26 June 2015 08:13 AM

    Sky is the limit for 50%. Blady Thief.

    Sumane Friday, 26 June 2015 08:15 AM

    Sky is the limit. But the litmus test has already been done.

    kamalhot1 Friday, 26 June 2015 08:20 AM

    He tried to control Maithree, but could not be able to do that. Now like kitten, see how the fate works. No one is above this, good advice for all. Power is a target missed boomerang for goons.

    Maya Friday, 26 June 2015 12:52 PM

    If he contest on SLFP then that spells doom for the authority of MY3 within the party.

    kamalhot1 Friday, 26 June 2015 08:25 AM

    President will not give nomination to you for sure, as he is the one confirmed very clearly you as the most corrupted leader during the election, so how come you get nomination through SLFP from Maithree as the Leader.

    Boonda Friday, 26 June 2015 06:12 PM

    The greedy man wants to try his luck again.
