Several electoral organizers’ meetings were convened today by the MPs representing the Joint Opposition, to enquire into the decision of participation in the upcoming SLFP convention.
During a meeting held at MP Ramesh Pathirana’s residence in Kithulampitiya, Galle, members requested the MP not to participate in the SLFP convention, and to resign from his organizer post.
Meanwhile, a meeting of the electoral organizers were held at Homagama SLFP electorate, under the patronage of MP Bandula Gunawardena.
During the meeting, it was decided not to participate in the convention.
However, a group of former local government representatives of SLFP noted during a media briefing held in Colombo today, that the party has now entered a new path and that they intend to celebrate the party’s convention on a grand scale.
