Prof Bandara challenges new Wimal-led alliance


Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) MP Prof. Ranjith Bandara challenged those behind the formation of the new political alliance under MP Wimal Weerawansa to show if they could garner even 9,000 votes in the next election.

He however, expressed his best wishes to the new political alliance that is to be formed shortly under the stewardship of the National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader.

The MP added that having a multi-party system of politics would augur well for democracy in Sri Lanka.

He further claimed that most of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MPs will soon ditch Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa and throw their lot with their former Leader President Ranil Wickremesinghe.
