All parties that are not currently represented in Parliament will join the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) by November 11, UPFA General Secretary and Environment Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said.

 

He made these remarks during at an interview with the SLFP electorate organizers and district organizers yesterday at the SLFP headquarters in Colombo.

 

The Minister stated that steps will be taken to make the UPFA a strong political force by bringing all the parties together and the political groups that do or do not make representation in Parliament proceedings.

 

"The biggest party representing the UPFA is the SLFP. We also have a network of organizations spread across the country. We are working tirelessly to make UPFA the strongest political force in our country. For that, we will be holding discussions with a number of other minor parties soon. We are planning to carry out the organizational activities of the UPFA without any shortcomings and will also strengthen the main party of our alliance, the SLFP. We do not reject any political force that rallies around the UPFA, "he said.

 

In order to win an election, the support of all parties must be secured. Without that, it has been proven in the past that no party can compete alone and achieve victory in the current political stream. Governments have always been formed only by forming alliances. Governments, especially those considered to be left-wing, were appointed by the coalition.

 

"We do not have the intention of sabotaging the current government's journey. Also we reject the accusations made against us by some. Our intention is not to break the parties that are affiliated to the government by giving certain privileges. The UPFA is a staunch ally of the present government. We support it as a team," the General Secretary added. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Who is going to lead the UPFA ? If it is going to be aiyo Sirisena the alliance will fall apart in no time and suffer the same fate like bank robber of the Yahapalana government. The people of Srilanka do not have any faith in the present 225 of all parties.
