While ruling out plans of the Joint Opposition to form a new political party, former President and Kurunegala District MP Mahinda Rajapaksa today said that it is the people who should decide on the establishment of a new party.

He said this as a response to the media after attending a religious event held in Urapola Temple in Pilimathalawa.

“The rally of the Joint Opposition which will be held on October 8 is not about the formation of a new party,” he said.

However, it was reported that the inaugural rally of a new political front headed by the Joint Opposition is slated to be held at Eheliyagoda town on October 8.

    To ensure democracy, the country needs a strong opposition. As a Leader of the true opposition, you are not wrong to build a new party.

    Top Hat Monday, 26 September 2016 08:43 AM

    Kadupol Jothywansa Monday, 26 September 2016 10:33 AM

    German Jacob you are Hitler's man. You should back Mahinda as he is also a Dictator.

    Manuel Benjamin Monday, 26 September 2016 09:53 AM
