A difference of opinions among the government coalitions has emerged as the society has been talking of an imminent Presidential election.

The Ceylon Workers Congress, Sri Lanka Muslim Congress and Kandu Rata Janatha Peramuna stated that the Executive Presidency should not be abolished.

These minority coalitions of the government have decided not to support any candidate if he or she would campaign to abolish executive presidency or curtail its executive powers during a future election.

Ceylon Workers Congress President Muththu Sivalingam expressed his party stand on the decision.

He stated that the executive presidency is essential to safeguard the minority parties.

However the left-winged government coalitions stated that the executive presidency should be abolished.

Working Committee member of the Samajavadi Janatha Peramuna Anil de Soyza said that the left-winged parties have sought appointments with the President and SLFP General Secretary Minister Maithreepala Sirisena to explain their stand on the issue.

Meanwhile JHU and NFF maintain their stand that the executive presidency should not be abolished.
