Affiliate parties of the People’s Alliance are at odds with each other over the quota of candidates for each of them, reports say. A party can field nearly 8,500 candidates per party.
The NFF, PHU and other parties are demanding a considerable number of candidates for them. The PHU too, has asked for a similar number. MPs Kumar Welgama and Pavitradevi Wanniarachchi have said the hurdle against the joint opposition’s contesting along with the SLFP was that the party was governing the country along with the UNP.
