Any election only under ‘Lotus bud’ – unanimous decision

The party is ready to contest any upcoming election under the lotus bud logo and there is no objection to any party joining a coalition headed by the SLPP, said the SLPP provincial councillors circle.

This decision was reached during the SLPP provincial councillors circle meeting held at the SLPP Headquarters on Nelum Mawatha, Battaramiulla yesterday (11).

The party said that the decision was reached unanimously.

However, the Chairman of the SLFP President Maithripala Sirisena, had been informed that the majority of SLFP –MPs and organisers have objected to contesting under the ‘lotus bud’.

President Sirisena had adviced the senior SLFP members to refrain from making any statement that would jeopardise the formation of the new coalition currently being formed between the SLFP and the SLPP.
