By Sandun A Jayasekera

Several senior SLFP leaders who met at the official residence of a Cabinet minister at Mahagamasekara Mawatha in Colombo have decided to request former president Maithripala Sirisena not to contest the general election but enter Parliament through the SLPP national list.  

They had decided to make the request through SLPP leader, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.   


A senior SLFPer who took part in the discussions told Daily Mirror that many party stalwarts and supporters were not happy about some of the recent remarks made by Mr. Sirisena.  “They are of the view that these comments had damaged the unity in the SLFP and conveyed the wrong signals to the SLPP. Therefore, we decided to urge Mr. Sirisena to withdraw from the election and enter Parliament through the national list slot allocated to the SLFP,” he said.
