UNP-SLFP understanding to continue
Reports say the MoU between the UNP and the SLFP will continue until 2025. Last week, Rajapaksa loyalist media said the agreement would collapse. 
However, minister Mangala Samaraweera met president Maithripala Sirisena as a special representative of prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and said the UNP would withdraw from the MoU if the SLFP entered into an agreement with the joint opposition.
A proposal was made to prevent clashes as the two parties will contest the local government polls on their own. Minister Malik Samarawickama too, met the president in Kandy and discussed this matter.
Meanwhile, ex-president Chandrika Kumaratunga asked civil society organizations at a meeting to mediate in a possible dispute between the two parties.
As a result, Wickremesinghe has instructed his MPs not to criticize the president without permission from him or the party’s general secretary.
