SLFP National Organiser Susil Prmajantha said they were against the national government or unity government concept and expressed confidence in a UPFA victory at the general elections.
The party also condemned the NPC resolution calling for an international probe into alleged war crimes and 'genocide' during the last stages of the armed conflict.
Mr. Premajayantha said the use of the word genocide was not acceptable.
"This is a time of reconciliation. We have rehabilitated 11,000 cadres. If there was genocide, this wouldn't have happened,” he said.
Mr. Premajayantha said candidates will be screened by the nominations board before selecting them to contest the general election.
He said they would consider the wishes of people when selecting the candidates.(Video & text by Lahiru Pothmulla)

Forget about Party politics and start working for people. Enough UPFA looted our country.All should help a united UNP/ JVP/ JHU coalition to come into power.

Why are you so reluctant to work together to develop the country that has been destroyed by a monetary cyclone???

MS came to power for a National Government, Susil P of his party is against.

Sirisena is now compelled reluctantly to go for a national govt as he could not achieve the expected crossovers from the SLFP before or after the election. He is now leading a minority UNP govt: as the SLFP leader, though he contested from a a different party against the incumbent president of the country who was also the president of the SLFP. He must now realize that it is the expectations of the SLFPers to form their own govt after the next General election. He must put his effort behind the party. He is morally and politically obliged to do so. He cannot go for a national govt just to satisfy the UNP his temporary allies. Remember over 5 mln SLFP votes are with MR which were against MS and UNP.

Bring back Mahinda then UPFA will win
Lakshman DeSilva Monday, 16 February 2015 03:51 PM
The plan of the National government is to rule forever by the UNP to collar the largest party the SLFP.As a memebe of the SLFP proposed by Madam Bandaranaike and seconded by Ratnsiri Wickramamnaika, I wholly protest this national Government trick.SLFP can always win single handed without the UNPMaitripala Sirisena power hungry, joined forces with the defeatred UNP ans the opposition to become The President of Sri Lanka and made the whole cabinet majority with UNP people and some non members of parliment.If the SLFP goes alone the next Parlimentary election can be theirs.Sirisena came to power on many allegations of corruption and family bandism ( nepotism) Well, corruotion during the post 1977 UNP was greater

The SLFP was in a right position to govern the country in the most amicable way,but it lost it way in time and even the public which voted for the party are not interested in their come back.

W have a good taste of your food during last 10 years. Enough is enough. Even poor Rambutan sellers were not left along.

Just because the Germans at present kiss the feet of the Jews, it does not mean they did not do a genocide during WW2.
Nihal B D Monday, 16 February 2015 02:48 PM
People like you will keep this country divided on political party lines forever.
kuthbuddin Monday, 16 February 2015 02:50 PM
this clearly shows that the politician of this country are not for the people it is for their party well being.what i think is that as people are the most powerful force we as public of this country should propose system of political reforms to the parliament which should be accepted.and after that the general election can continue.
TONY Monday, 16 February 2015 09:09 PM
THIS WAS EXPECTED.
OnlyChance Monday, 16 February 2015 02:52 PM
Only MR will stand a chance against RW under these circumstances.
