A special meeting of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) electoral organizers was held at Foundation Institute under the patronage of party leader, President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday (19).

SLFP General Secretary Minister Duminda Dissanayake earlier said the party was expected to present amendments to the proposed VAT Bill to the President at this meeting.

The amendments proposed to the Value Added Tax (VAT) and Nation Building Tax (NBT) in the 2016 budget have been put on hold until the relevant legislative enactments are passed in Parliament.

The Head of State has stated former President Mahinda Rajapaksa who was rejected by the public during two national elections has no basis to form a new alliance.

Former President Chandrika Banadaranayake Kumarathunga was also part of the discussion held at the Sri Lanka Foundation.
