Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekara says that the party has not yet decided to leave the government or contest separate elections from the party.
Q: Has there been a suggestion that SLFP will not contest the elections separately?
“No, but there were different proposals, so the majority of us have different opinions. Therefore, it is to be decided when an election comes. Can’t say now ”
Q: Is the SLFP still with the government in this situation? What is the latest situation?
“We are still with the government, there is no problem with that”
Q: Do not want to leave?
“That decision should be taken after taking a decision of the Central Committee. No such decision has been taken at present. We are still working with the government ”
Q: Your Leader is getting strong criticism from some government ministers and MPs?
“President Maithri has faced more problems than that. It’s normal to blame each other. It is not good to respond to criticism.”
Minister of State Dayasiri Jayasekara stated this addressing the media after a special meeting of the SLFP organizers held in Colombo yesterday (05).
