SLFP-SLPP coalition possible at LG bodies: Isura

30 December 2017 06:50 pm - 11     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Western Province Chief Minister Isura Devapriya yesterday said that there is a prospect of Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) joining the Joint Opposition backed Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) in order to maintain a majority at Local Government (LG) government bodies.

He said that there was no other alternative for these two parties to govern LG bodies where no political party secures a majority.

“There is nothing special in this reunion. The JO is also against the United National Party (UNP) whereas we are also following an anti-UNP policy,” he added.

    I am surprised at what qualifications Isuru Devapriya has to be the Chief Minister, whenever he opens his mouth he utters rubbish.

    If he is that interested in joining with SLPP (MR), why doesn't he do it alone without trying to get MS to betray the 62% who voted for him

    This politically immature fool will definitely dishearten the 62 million of people who voted for MY3.
