While claiming they would contest alone at the upcoming General Election, Democratic Party Leader, Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka said they would only join a common political front if there was a real threat of ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa returning to power.

“If a threat arises where Mahinda Rajapaksa and his associates could return to power, we will join an alliance that would defeat it. That is the only scenario that would compel us to change our stance,” he said at an event held on Wednesday to appoint new organisers of the party.

Commenting on requests from others parties to join other alliances, he said he had received an invitation from a committee of the President and the United National Party (UNP) had informed them that its Chairman, Malik Samarawickrema, would visit him within the next two days.

“However, we are certain of our stance and we will inform them about our decision. We hope we will be able to secure at least 1 million votes and send about 20 members to Parliament from the party,” he said. (LSP)

    This shows his ability to calculate the situation. Also shows who did the real calculations for the war and made it a victory.

    It is the right way sir,I think every party should contest on their own with clear policies.

    Nelum Fernando Thursday, 02 July 2015 02:59 AM

    I thought that "you" alone can win against Mahinda since "You" alone made everything possible to win the war.

    Dear Sir,We respect all that you have done.But, tell the truth, your assessment that your party is going to get 1,000,000 votes and thereby 20 members to Parliament is a joke.Do u want to go to parliament, Join UNP, at least you can win forget about other 19.ThanksAsitha K.

    I think that will be the best thing to do,because if these rouges come again it is the end of YAHAPAALANAYA.

    Foolish comment, he did not work alone. Pilots also did their job accurately and government of Sri Lanka gave them the authority to attack and provided any amount of weapons.

    Kadulpol Jothywansa Thursday, 02 July 2015 11:03 AM

    Sir, you really won and Mahinda grabbed your position and forcibly became the President. Now its your turn, you alone can win legally this corrupted Mahinda.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Thursday, 02 July 2015 11:05 AM

    Kadupol Jothywansa Thursday, 02 July 2015 11:07 AM

    Wele Vidane Thursday, 02 July 2015 05:56 AM

    Kadulpol Jothywansa Thursday, 02 July 2015 11:09 AM

    Sir be with RW and MS and destroy the nasty robber Mahinda, the dam looter of our nation.

    Charlesnj Thursday, 02 July 2015 06:36 AM

    Thank you Sir for the thought ! That is what all should do to prevent this Nation going back to the dark ! We need a repeat of January 8th !

    Waco Thursday, 02 July 2015 01:06 PM

    Golden Rule Sir, Please do not slam mud at others. If you do, you are opening the doors for others to throw mud at you. People, want to know your policies and how you are going to manage / run the country.

    Waco Thursday, 02 July 2015 01:12 PM

    Ignor what the others say about you. Your main task to win the confidence of people. Follow US President Mr. Obama,s style of making a speech.

    Waco Thursday, 02 July 2015 01:20 PM

    Late Hon: JRJ, Lalith Athulathmudali, Ranjan Wijeratna, and Gamini Dissanayake , they were all good speakers.

    winning two seats would be an achievement.

    Prem Nath Wednesday, 01 July 2015 11:38 PM

    What makes you think that you will have numbers that would make a significiant difference?

    J Palitha Thursday, 02 July 2015 09:55 AM

    SF won the freedom from LTTE, now he should get the freedom from the Country Looters of previous regime.

    sattaya Thursday, 02 July 2015 03:24 PM

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 02 July 2015 09:58 AM

    Well done Field Marshall SF, you defeated LTTE in the battle field, not just stayed inside the AC room and said he defeated the Terrorist. You are the hero, try to defeat Mahinda and be a Great Hero.
