Defeating conspiracy, SLFP to contest under ‘hand’ symbol after 27 yrs.
After 27 years, the SLFP will field candidates under its own ‘hand’ symbol at the election for local government institutions due next year. The party last did so at the 1991 LG polls. 
The SLFP has decided to contest all future elections under its symbol in order to endorse the five great forces of its founding leader S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike, according to a decision taken by president Maithripala Sirisena.
Meanwhile, the SLFP is to form alliances to contest selected LG bodies. The related MoUs are due to be signed in the coming week. Therefore, the SLFP is more likely to contest Nuwara Eliya and Batticaloa under a common alliance.
