President Maithripala Sirisena reportedly promised to introduce political reforms to Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) with a change of some office bearers between May 8 and 15, it is learnt.

The President made remarks to this effect at the SLFP Central Committee meeting on Tuesday evening. This was the first Central Committee meeting conducted after 16 members of the party decided to leave the national unity government.

These MPs insisted at the meeting that the remaining members should also leave the government and revitalize the party.

Besides, Uva Province Chief Minister Chamara Sampath Dasanayake also said the SLFP, as a party, should sever links with the government.

Those who relinquished their ministerial portfolios argued that Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake should be removed from the General Secretary post of the party.

The President said he would take initiatives for, far-reaching reforms to the party between May 8 and 15. (Kelum Bandara)

    My opinion - all our leaders are sleeping or only looking after their own welfare making money, no difference between Mahinda and his gangsters.

    Dear Prez., as a person along with my family who voted you into power, I honorably request you to kindly get lost because our farmers are weeping unable to sell their produce, COL is sky-high, elephant's issue is so much troubling our villagers and tuskers are dying everyday, tourists are getting attacked everywhere and you and your PM and the cabinet are protecting all culprits and talking about your party and cabinet re-shuffle. Do you think anybody cares for your or any other's party ? They want solutions not blabbering.

    No one cares about SLFP UNP or SLPP or any party. Politicians are only concerned about these and not the country

    No one cares about any of these political parties but our leaders only care about the party and not the country
