Colombo, Feb 28 (Daily Mirror) - Many members of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) will abandon their party and join President Ranil Wickremesinghe when he kicks off his campaign for presidency on March 10 this year, UNP General Secretary Palitha Range Bandara said today.

"These SJBers have already begun negotiations with us and will join us when our leader launches his campaign at a rally which is to be held in Kuliyapitiya on March 10," Range Bandara told a media briefing.

Asked whether Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka will also join the President, the UNP General Secretary said the Field Marshal will end up with the right camp at the right time.

Also he said Wickremesinghe will be an independent candidate at the Presidential election.

"There is enough funds to hold a Presidential election in October this year," he also said.

    Enough funds will never promise that Wickremasinghe will be back to the seat that he occupies under the US PLOT.

    Who wants to join this bankrupt party? Unless there is money thrown at them nobody will join.

    He is saying this for years. Rw is going to be an independent candidate according to him so why sjb guys will join your joke paety unp. You got it all mixed up. Learn to lie fist. Lol. By the way the general election will be held prior to PE. If PE is held first the NPP will easily win as it needs only to get one more vote than next candidate. If General election is held first npp will get around 100 maximum. Then sjb will form a government with the help of all other parties.

    A joker, who will jump into a sinking boat and destroy their political career?

    Kevin Thursday, 29 February 2024 02:46 AM

    Looks like the presidential election will be held in June. Otherwise the incumbent will not start his campaign on March 10.

    ACA Thursday, 29 February 2024 04:33 AM

    Why they join, to go home for good ?

    Bandu Thursday, 29 February 2024 04:41 AM

    Not surprised as Range lives in cuckoo land.

    Absolutely true. Keep dreaming.

    In Sri Lanka nothing can be ruled out in politics, but how can a sensible, politically thoughtful person switch to the UNP!??? A party that reached rock bottom in the last election, that failed and that cannot lead the young generation into a good and economically secure future!!! Despite all the good acquaintance between Fonseka and Ranil, it would be a fatal, even fatal, mistake if he were to join this party! Fonseka would be doing a disservice to his prestige and reputation and would be doing serious damage to his exceptional status and personal inviolability! However, I must conclude at this point that it is almost impossible for Fonseka, a man with legitimate overarching political ambitions, to aspire to the highest office given the "catastrophic" state of the party political landscape!

    Wishful thinking, you political discards.
