Grassroots SLFP supporters will never vote UNP – G.L
The grassroots level Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) supporters will never vote for the United National Party (UNP) presidential candidate and they will vote for the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), SLPP Chairman Prof. G.L Peiris said.
Addressing journalists at the SLPP Head Office today (05 August), Peiris said that whoever the UNP’s presidential candidate will be, their policies will not change.
“Not understanding the value of national assets and state enterprises, selling the country’s assets to other countries, signing agreements with other countries which is against the sovereignty of the country are among UNP’s policies,” Peiris said.
Commenting further, SLPP Chairman said that, SLPP has held five round of talks with the SLFP at present and the policies of the alliance are already discussed.
“What is left to discuss is the institutional structure if we are working together. When the leaders of both parties will discuss the matter, it will not be difficult to go forward,” Peiris said.
Peiris, however, failed to say when the discussions between Leader of the Opposition Mahinda Rajapaksa and President Maithripala Sirisena will be held.
