Former President and Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) joining the opening of a media centre for the SLFP stated that his party does not agree to the postponement of any election.
Despite a five-sixths majority, the United National Party (UNP), as well as the entire country, had suffered a detrimental effect upon the J.R. Jayawardena led government’s postponement of elections, Sirisena pointed out, adding that such a situation should not be allowed to recur.
He added that a reorganisation process has already been initiated re-establish the SLFP as the foremost and strongest political party in the country.
Responding to a query whether a coalition will be formed with Sajith Premadasa, Sirisena emphasised that such an alliance would not be necessary in the objective of establishing a political alliance led by the SLFP. Anyone accepting the policies of the SLFP is welcome to join, the former President noted.
