Several SLFPers to leave govt.: T.B.

17 May 2015 07:23 am - 25     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


At least 16 of the 26 SLFP Parliamentarians, who joined the government might leave their current positions and return to their original positions, Parliamentarian T. B Ekanayake said.

A number of the SLFPers, including some who have taken up Deputy and State Ministerial portfolios in the new government, were currently discussing the matter, he said.

“A decision will be taken next week,” Ekanayake said.

The Parliamentarian said that members were being pressured by the voters of their respective electorates to return.

Speaking of the general elections, Ekanayake said the party would kick off their campaign with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, if Parliament was dissolved, in Anuradhapura.

“If Parliament is not dissolved we will begin our rallies with the participation of Mahinda Rajapaksa from Matara,” Ekanayake said. (DS)

    Even then MR will be voted to power as they know he is a leader with backbone.

    Mr. Sirisena has done some impressive work. But people fear that appointing wrong PM will result in foreigners ruling the country.

    If you guys want to leave just get out and hang on to the Sathakaya. Very easy to find honest candidates.

    This could happen if the govt. further delays the generalelection. They want to solve critical problems with a weakminority govt. without passing it to a stable govt. after theelections.

    MilkyWay Sunday, 17 May 2015 01:26 PM

    Nice. The SLFP need to be cleaned up before the elections.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 17 May 2015 01:33 PM

    Birds of a flock get together. Their only salvation is to bring back Ali Baba so that the thieves can live happily ever after.
