Mahinda to contest on his own

The joint opposition is considering contesting the upcoming provincial council and local government elections on its own. JO leaders have noted to ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa that they could not contest along with the SLFP, as the grassroots politicians would not agree to that.


Rajapaksa has responded favourably to the suggestion.

Previously, he had not attended the grassroots functions of the JO, but since recently is getting involved in such activities due to this reason. Media coordinators of the JO are giving wide publicity to such functions through social media.
