The 16-member Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) group that broke away from the government called on former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today and pledged to cooperate with the joint opposition in the future political matters.

MP Dayasiri Jayasekara told Daily Mirror that he and his colleagues had expressed their willingness to work to bridge the gap between President Maithripala Sirisena and the joint opposition.

However, he said the SLFP breakaway group would function as a separate entity inside and outside Parliament. "We will cooperate with the joint opposition when it comes to political activities. It does not mean that we will join them," he said. (Kelum Bandara)

    Best of both worlds. Our politicians don't have a backbone.

    Scooby Doo Thursday, 24 May 2018 10:24 AM

    These politicians should go to school gain.

    rew Thursday, 24 May 2018 10:56 AM

    When you have legs on either side of a barbed wire fence like this MP has, it could be very painful and damaging physically..

    C.K.Lankaputhra Thursday, 24 May 2018 06:40 AM

    Sir! We have done your job, what next.

    Tracy Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:08 AM

    The frog jumps both sides..

    Uchikun Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:13 AM

    Is this news. We knew that most of these fellows were playing a double game. This man making this statement has no policy. Just jumps from side to side for his political survival.

    KOLA KOTIYA Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:24 AM

    DONT TALK NONSENSE . 16 SLFPERS WITH MAHINDA ONLY, ITS NOT A NEWS. WE ALL KNOW

    Yeti Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:26 AM

    Moles unplugged!

    MORRIS Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:27 AM

    WHY THIS CHARADE ? BE MEN OF HONOUR AND JOIN MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE'S JO WITHOUT TRYING TO HOODWINK POOR SLFP VOTERS.

    Ex-Voter Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:53 AM

    As expected ! Like small children taking the initial steps !!

    Lankan Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:58 AM

    Shameless gang

    PC Thursday, 24 May 2018 08:04 AM

    Birds of a feather! Rogues can only end up with similar thinking people...

    Rupet Ranasinghe Thursday, 24 May 2018 12:37 PM

    Honestly, these rotters are following garbage politics, they do anything for their personal welfare, never cares for the public who voted for them.

    Dhanapala Thursday, 24 May 2018 08:17 AM

    At least prevents approval of dangerous bills.

    dulan Thursday, 24 May 2018 08:52 AM

    Idea is to give SLFP back to Rajapaksas

    Common Sense Thursday, 24 May 2018 09:19 AM

    No need to be concerned of this statement given by Mr. Dayasiri Jayasekara. Everything depends on who says? and what says? Highly ambitious politician and there is no end to his greediness. I am sure that MR will give him a good lesson at the end of the day.

    ND Thursday, 24 May 2018 09:31 AM

    Aio Dayasiri enough is enough! Whom are you trying to fool? People are fed up with you.

    Farook Thursday, 24 May 2018 09:33 AM

    President and other SLFP members with the government will join JO very soon. SLPP will be abolished and SLFP will remain.

    joshua Thursday, 24 May 2018 09:38 AM

    we knew you and your goons will do it. This Parliament has a bunch of jokers who fly from one hand to another for their survival. Somehow bring back the rajapaske yugaya so that they can plunder some more and whilst they are at it you too can fill your pockets. Disgraceful lot these politicians

    Don Thursday, 24 May 2018 09:40 AM

    This is not a new thing. They were betraying every development strategy plans of coalition. They were dancing according to the tune of JO-kers during past 3 years.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 24 May 2018 10:00 AM

    The only work you bastards are involved is bartering your party positions, deal making

    Ram Thursday, 24 May 2018 10:42 AM

    Not one person is ashamed. I scratch your back you scratch my back. Many of them scolded MR

    Lion Viswanathan Thursday, 24 May 2018 12:33 PM

    These fellows are not genuine politicians, they are back lickers and opportunists.

    patriot Thursday, 24 May 2018 10:53 AM

    If one does not have a quality to fool the public, you can not become a politician.

    TONY Thursday, 24 May 2018 11:06 AM

    THESE SLFP MEMBERS WHO CALL THEMSELVES JO SHOULD ANNOUNCE THAT THEY WILL CONTEST FUTURE ELECTIONS UNDER SLPP AND NOT UNDER SLFP SO THAT THEY WILL NOT GET ANY VOTES FROM SLFP SUPPORTERS

    Dennis Reeves Thursday, 24 May 2018 12:31 PM

    Who cares for these rotten bunch of thieves who looted with Mahinda in billions.

    keerthi Thursday, 24 May 2018 01:29 PM

    why pledge support, go and join the JO

    Wise Donkey Friday, 25 May 2018 03:39 AM

    What did you tell them about the million you got from the company connected to the scam?

    Don Friday, 25 May 2018 09:13 AM

    This spokesman for 16 group is a fraudster.

    vt Friday, 25 May 2018 04:17 PM

    Poor voters.These 16 cheated them
