Discussions on establishing a joint opposition understanding is underway with initial talks being held today between UNP national leader and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and Democratic Peoples Front leader Mano Ganesan with both deciding to start a dialogue among opposition political parties in this regard.

During today’s talks with Mr. Ganesan, Mr. Wickremesinghe had expressed his desire to bring in the TNA, JVP and the Democratic Party (DP) led by former Army commander Sarath Fonseka together.

Mr. Ganesan told the Daily Mirror that he informed Mr. Wickremesinghe that he had already met JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake and Former Army Commander Fonseka.

According to Mr. Ganesan the position is that all parties would have a dialogue on forming an arrangement.

He said a common candidate for a future presidential election would be announced if the parties manage to form a common front. (YP)

    So then what happens to Mr Wickremasinghe's announcement that the UNP will field it's own candidate at the next presidential election?

    First talk with own members, try to win UVa first. at least a few electorates. Sajith is very important for UNP when addressing village Buddhist masses.

    And to the JVP message that said they will never back the UNP candidate?

    Rubert Vanderkoon Sunday, 25 May 2014 01:09 PM

    Sajith shouts quite loud from the city for the village to hear. But if that is a qualification, goodness ..hep me..
