United People’s Freedom Alliance had no issues if former President Mahinda Rajapaksa wanted to contest on UPFA ticket, the alliance said yesterday.

Issuing a statement, UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayantha said that all coalition partners of the UPFA had decided to work collectively at the upcoming Parliamentary elections.

“As reported in the media former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had told that he would enter active politics through the UPFA and as a political alliance we don’t have any issues with that and if he wanted to enter active politics he can represent the UPFA,” the statement said.

    We do not want to happen this gain in temple treesspending public fund for his body pleasure

    By looking at comments which are supporting MR, grave feeling that paid indirect PR campaign for MR. Until now seen lot of support for my3. But recently people changed after my3 allowed to sing national anthem in tamil. Sri lankans are educated so hope they will vote wisely no to give robbers or his family and allies to repeat the past.

    IF SRI LANKANS VOTE HIM BACK TO POWER, WE DESERVE EVERYTHING THAT WE GET. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE SO STUPID AS TO TO EVEN CONSIDER HIM AS A POTENTIAL CANDIDATE!

    kukula Monday, 23 March 2015 03:14 PM

    big hopes and day dream.By the time the next elections are due MR would have lost his civic rights.

    Good decision , with out MR no victory

    Anil Sunday, 22 March 2015 09:42 AM

    Another conspiracy to keep MR away.

    Hiran Sunday, 22 March 2015 09:44 AM

    All these issues have risen due to powerlessness of Maithree. At least now, he must give a statement SL people where he stands. Allowing MR to contest in the election will take back all the achievements done by the new regime. Also, it proves to the world that Maithree is a weak and ungrateful leader! Maithree owns a big explanation to people of SL

    Bubble Banda Sunday, 22 March 2015 05:32 PM

    We were strong UNP supporters and worked with MS, now to see he had cheated very badly. We will make MR to come to power and chase this regime.

    saliya Sunday, 22 March 2015 10:28 AM

    Mahinda is not just a name, he is the alternative name for nation of Sri Lanka. Atlast, SLFP understood the value of MR. People knew MR is the only solution to a unitary Sri Lanka.Anyway, we are demanding a statement from Maithreepala Sirisena approving MR as Prime Ministerial candidate.

    Desmond Jeromme Sunday, 22 March 2015 05:33 PM

    Susil either you say or not.... wait and see what is the punishment you are going to get. You greedy pig, betrayed your master and hanging behind Ranil.

    ANTON Sunday, 22 March 2015 10:38 AM

    WHEN WE CROSS GOOD GOVERNANCE WITH CHITANAYA , WE GET CHICKENGUNYA.

    Horri Jimonis Sunday, 22 March 2015 05:36 PM

    Susil, people are waiting to welcome you with rotten eggs

    Ganesha Sunday, 22 March 2015 10:41 AM

    Let him come and contest shameless power greedy monster but people are very clear now with the state media that though he misused ,spent a lot of sate money and resources could not win but was defeated disgracefully but still does not seem to have realized. Good sir you had better contest and lose even the rest that you embezzled and suffer a lot as you made us suffer. This should be your destiny

    Whilst President Maitre Sirisena would not allow MR into future politics in UPFA/SLFP these guys like Premajayanth playing double games. President MS has to be alert. It is open secret the MR and family has been corrupt and misled country.

    suresh Sunday, 22 March 2015 11:01 AM

    Welcome MR and rebuild the nation with correction the earlier mistakes

    Supporter Monday, 23 March 2015 09:24 AM

    TO,M.R dear sir, if the facts are true, we are ashamed of ourselves for supporting you . Remember no srilankan will forgive you or any of your family members. This is all we got to say.

    Ravi Sunday, 22 March 2015 11:05 AM

    NO Anton , When we are expecting good governance from Maithtri and UNP, We will get Beri Beri gaya...

    Silva Monday, 23 March 2015 09:33 AM

    Yes, let this power greedy robber MR contest the elections, so that people will hand over the worst defeat to him a final nail in his coffin, at least by then let him realise that sri lankans are no fools to trust him !

    philipdesilva Sunday, 22 March 2015 11:14 AM

    Guys, why do we need someone when they were in power our country was robbed and full of corruption. Seriously there is no one else or what in this country???
