Over 500 Bhikkus representing all districts were present at the first meeting with the former President.

The president of the organization is chief incumbent of Abhayaramaya Venerable Muruththettuwe Ananda Thera.

The discussions were centered on obtaining an early election and for making the former president the UPFA prime ministerial candidate.

The monks insisted on forming a new political party and fielding former President Rajapaksa as the prime ministerial candidate, unless SLFP nominates him.

While leaving Abhayaaramaya premises, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa responded to the questions raised by the media.

He accepted that they had faults and also stated that those days people complained that there are more cabinet ministers, but now they complain that there are more Executive Presidents.
