The minority parties have requested from the government to include them too in the agreement to be signed for the consensus government between the two main parties for the next 18 months, government sources said.

It is reported that a number of minority parties which represent the United National Front (UNF) have made such requests.

Several parties such as Sri Lanka Muslim Congress led by Rauf Hakeem, All Ceylon Makkal Congress of Rishard Badudeen and the Tamil Progressive Alliance have reportedly made such requests during the last general election, the Democratic People’s Front under the leadership of Mano Ganesan, National Workers Congress of P.Digambaran and Up Country People’s Front of Radha Krishanan contested under the United National Front.

A new agreement between the United National Party and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party is to be signed for the next 18 months and accordingly, it is reported that other parties as well, would sign the agreement in due course. (Ajantha Kumara Agalakada)

    Rishard Badudeen is left-of-center and a very good public servant. He should consider joining SLFP.
