United People Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Parliamentarian Rohitha Abeygunawardena says that the identity of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) will be firmly kept against all odds, irrelevant with whom they will be allying in contesting for the upcoming Presidential Election.  

He said that although they have no problem with the statement made by Parliamentarian Duminda Dissanayake on behalf of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) that President Sirisena will be contesting for the Presidential Election, no agreement as such has been made so far.

Political sources claim that apparently in keeping with the SLPP's identity, President Sirisena may be contesting for the Presidential Election from the Pohottuwa symbol.

Members of the SLPP have already been restricted to present opinion as to who will be contesting for the election from their side.
