SLFP divided over next President


With a vote to be held in Parliament next week to select the next President to serve out the term of office of the ousted President, the SLFP has become divided, Ceylon Today reliably learns.

Accordingly, the SLFP MPs have already begun to express various views for the probable candidates who are expected to contest the secret vote to select the new President.

The SLFP MPs have already held several rounds of talks to reach consensus with regard to the candidate they should back collectively, but they noted those talks had ended without them reaching any agreement.
