A discussion was held between Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) at the Prime Minister’s Office this (16) morning.
MPs Ranjith Siyambalapitiya and Dayasiri Jayasekara joined the discussion from the SLFP side.
The two told the Prime Minister not to make any attempts on dividing the party by offering ministerial posts, warning that the new government may not be able to move further should such an attempt be made.
Accordingly, it is best that the SLFP serves in the Opposition and supports any positive move by the government without being submitted to it, Jayasekara informed, adding that any support extended by the SLFP will be decided and authorised by Party Chairman Maithripala Sirisena, according to sources.
Yesterday it was reported that five members of the SLFP were to be given ministerial portfolios of the Ranil-led government.
