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.

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

    J Palitha Monday, 26 September 2016 10:35 AM

    Now Mahinda is not living, only his soul is roaming around and bluffing.

    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.

    German Jacob Monday, 26 September 2016 10:36 AM

    J Palitha Monday, 26 September 2016 10:41 AM
