Ex-President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga (CBK) stated that she would not be able to stay in the government if former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa is appointed to the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) as some party loyalists have suggested.

Speaking at an event on Sunday (June 05th) she pointed out that the government was brought in to stop the looting of the country.

Minister John Seneviratne recently said that discussions were underway to appoint Gotabaya Rajapaksa the 'second leader' of the SLFP to prevent the party from breaking up.

The SLFP is divided as the pro-Maithripala Sirisena and the pro-Mahinda Rajapaksa camps and the latter supports the 'Joint Opposition' formed by the pro-Rajapaksa group in the UPFA.
