How to stay on in power: SLFP to advise SLPP
By Thameenah Razeek
SLFP plans to advise the SLPP Government on how to keep pledges made in order to keep the current administration in power, which includes pointing out the mistakes they have made and may make. SLFP National Organiser Duminda Dissanayake said the SLFP does not wish to go against the Government, while the political arena has become heated, adding that the public is concerned that the current administration would fall apart soon, but that some members of the Government are unable to comprehend the situation.
“Some are making a series of caustic accusations on the SLFP, other political parties and individuals who helped bring the Government to power. We do not want to leave the Government; we established it and elected the President; why should we leave? We went for an open agreement publicly when Gotabaya Rajapaksa was elected President and we disclosed the substance of that agreement,” he said. He noted that while the SLFP is a key member of the Government, they will also talk about the Government’s inadequacies in a constructive way.
