Sajith decides changing name of present alliance?

6 February 2020 06:02 am - 10     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The UNP faction led by Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa has decided to legally establish the proposed political alliance with the like-minded parties by changing the name of a political party which is functional at the moment, Daily Mirror learns.

This is the strategy adopted by many political forces in getting legal recognition because the registration of a party is a time-consuming exercise.

The UNP faction, backed by other parties, has already struck a deal with a small political party. This party will soon call for its convention and change its name as suggested by the leaders of the proposals alliance. Afterwards, it will name UNP MP Ranjith Madduma Bandara as its general secretary and notify it to the Election Commission.

Afterwards, the members of the proposed alliance will be appointed as its remaining office-bearers.

In the past, Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) and Front line Socialist Party were created in this fashion. (Kelum Bandara)

    Sanjith, what ever you do do it soon as people are waiting. UNP, Ranil and his goons are finished. If you confines dilly, daling on your decision, SLPP will not get 2/3 but 95% of the votes at the election.

    Name change will do nothing with regards to final outcome of general election

    You need to consider change of policies and point of view of the party with regard the country. By dropping all racists and separatists will boost the voting base dramatically

    Please do what ever it takes to get of Ranil, the 'kudella' or leech. People are fed up having to see his pappa face any more.
