Some former heads of local authorities which were administered by the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) are in the process of forming a new political party to contest the Local Government elections with the backing of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Former Gampaha Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Ranjith Gunawardane he and some others met yesterday to lay the ground plan for the new political party. He said they met Mr. Rajapaksa before their meeting.

“The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) is on a politically downhill path after some MPs took up posts in the government. So, we have to resurrect the party by forming a new front to accommodate party cadres,” Mr. Gunawardene said.

He said the name of the party and its symbol would be announced after elections were declared. The government has said the elections would be held this year under a mix system of Proportional Representation System and the First-Past-the-Post-System.

Meanwhile, the joint opposition is also known to be throwing its weight behind the new party. Its national organizer and MP Prasanna Ranatunga said the joint opposition would consider a new political alternative at this point of time.(Kelum Bandara)

    Hurry up and do it fast to cover up the past crimes sins and the stolen billions. The struggle is for this and not for the benefit of the people.

    We need to start developing the country. After the new gov came GDP is coming down and USD is going up, our economy is in a total mess now. We need to get services of people like GR to get things back on track.

    Please leave as soon as possible; It is good for the country without these corrupt guys. Hope it is not a ploy to get nomination from SLFP.
