NFF says divorce from UPFA to strengthen JO

The National Freedom Front (NFF) led by MP Wimal Weerawansa said today the party's decision to act independently of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) has been misinterpreted.

It said the decision was taken to strengthen the joint opposition under the leadership of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“The UPFA led by President Maitripala Sirisena acts as an ally of the government. Although the NFF contested the election on the UPFA ticket, it continues to act as party in the opposition. However, when allocating slots during parliamentary debates the group of UPFAers in the government are favoured better. The NFF has also been denied the opportunity to attend the party leaders’ meeting and make speeches under Standing Order 23/2,” the NFF said.

Its propaganda secretary Mohamed Mussamil in his statement on behalf of the party said the NFF had requested Speaker Karu Jayasuriya on April 5, 2015 to recognize it as a separate party in Parliament but the request was not granted and as such we are making a fresh request to the Speeker.

    Shame of this guy having only five rotten eggs in the NFF, trying to be independent, what a joke.

    Bubble Banda Saturday, 25 February 2017 09:23 AM

    Hay Weerawansa, without UPFA or JO or without MR can you win just ONE SEAT for your so-called party NFF.

    Before its too late, handover the looted money and the mansions you built for your relations to the Government and surrender my dear.

    If you contest any elections in the future, better be inside the cell, sometimes - you may get one or two sympathy votes man.

    Vijithj Saturday, 25 February 2017 08:51 PM

    Yes Weerawansa, its for your own good. The entire world knows that you have played out in billions of public money, better you surrender admitting your faults.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Saturday, 25 February 2017 08:52 PM

    Anyway, this man will go to the cell for all his wrong doings. How is he going to face the coming elections?

    Bubbl Banda Saturday, 25 February 2017 08:55 PM

    The whole bunch of NFF fellows are noted rowdies only used to rob

    kondaya77 Saturday, 25 February 2017 11:20 PM

    This is a ploy. Weerawansa will join the U.N.P and all the charges against him will be dropped .
