Sri Lanka Muslim Congress has decided to contest the forthcoming Provincial Council election under the UPFA banner, the Government Information Department announced today.

The party’s high command which met last evening has taken this decision after several hours of discussions among the senior party officials.

Meanwhile, SLMC leader Rauff Hakeem had met President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Wednesday and had submitted several conditions of the SLMC in order to contest at the election under the UPFA banner.

    cowards...

    Matalan Sunday, 15 July 2012 03:29 AM

    Yeah right! What about principles? Truth is, these opportunists depend on Govt. to hold their own positions and perks, without a care for Muslim community.

    SLMC acted as they are going to join hand with TULF and made the Government to be afraid and won all their conditions to be met by the Government. Good playing by the SLMC.

    hon.Minister Hakeem is being the master in today's news headlines. As some critics discussed about the sudden change of hakeem's jump over government custody is in purpose of giving and settling a pure humanity life in eastern province. this is a great move by leader. I hope that there is a good future for muslims and eastern tamil and sinhelese to be modernized... Let us co operate to SLMC

    Riya Sunday, 15 July 2012 06:07 AM

    Good decision. If they contest separately, the CM post will go to TNA which is poisonous for Muslims. Any way, pillayan is far less harmful than any TNA person. Good decision by SLMC. Though I don't like Hakeem

    we have to give Doctor of Jumper (DJ) no real leader for Muslim to lead Muslim in Sri Lanka

    Labby Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:53 AM

    The SLMC's strength today is because of the UNP. Now this is their end.

    Cobra Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:50 AM

    ase Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:53 AM

    Shifan Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:52 AM

    Please change party name as sri lanka profit party. Shame on you for using muslim name and working with most corrupted politicians ever

    Noor Sunday, 15 July 2012 07:30 AM

    this is bad decision, mr. hakim lost his credibility from eastern ppl.

    chamila Monday, 16 July 2012 02:34 AM

    lol@me Saturday, 14 July 2012 05:31 AM

    Sando Sunday, 15 July 2012 07:48 AM

    Hakim's political career is over

    RIZAN Sunday, 15 July 2012 08:07 AM

    COWARD HAKEEM, DAM SHAME FOR MUSLIM COMMUNITY.

    Imran Hussein Saturday, 14 July 2012 05:46 AM

    mattaya Sunday, 15 July 2012 09:05 AM

    Unattached Citizen Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:28 AM

    Surely, late Ashraff must be turning in his grave!

    fassey Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:23 AM

    Party without policy. Under any banner no benefit to Muslims.

    RAJU Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:47 AM

    POWERLES PEOPLE SHOULD ALWAYS DEPEND ON THE POWERFUL PEOPLE. IT IS NOT SOMETHING NEW TO YOU AND YOUR PARTY, THAT IS THE REALITY OF YOUR COMMUNITY. NO OTHER CHOICE.

    weha Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:21 AM

    Heh heh he doesn't have any other place to go

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:27 PM

    Hakkim is not bothered about that, as long as he holds his Ministerial portfolio in the UPFA Govt., its enough, this is only a drama by the Hon. Minister.

    Godagampala Rohana Saturday, 14 July 2012 04:29 PM

    Correct son, he is a shameless guy. But he is a good high jumper.

    Apsara Saturday, 14 July 2012 05:00 PM

    He follows the tactics of S. Thondaman. Bravo.

    Azmi Saturday, 14 July 2012 07:44 AM

    Good move Sir, don’t care goons counterfeit Accusations, we know it’s in a Political science strategy Implementation public policies and political processes, systems, and political behavior current situation sacrifice for next move…….Good luck

    Imran Hussein Sunday, 15 July 2012 03:46 PM

    Riya, I am having completely an opposite view. I like Hakim, he is an intelligent, Educated (fluent in all three languages) Rich guy (who snit a rogue) but he made a wrong decision here. This regime is falling apart, this regime is not solving problems among communities instead its deepening hatred among people. Hakim should have supported UNP (or even JVP, i dont mind) after all SLMC is not SL Muslims voice.

    DmirrorFan Saturday, 14 July 2012 03:18 AM

    Last time SLMC got highest votes but Pillayan made as CM by the very same gov. Hakeem any Answer?
