If we join with UNP our vote count will increase: Muslim Congress
The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress says that if they contested with the UNP they would be able to obtain more votes.
National Organizer Shafeek Rajabdeen stated that the SLMC would contest independently at the forthcoming Uva Provincial Council election.
National Organizer of the SLMC Shafeek Rajabdeen also stated that no decision has been taken as yet on whether to contest under the UNP ticket.
However, when we inquired from UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake as to what would be their stance in case the SLMC is willing to contest under the UNP ticket he stated that contesting together would be the biggest threat to the government and they welcomed the idea.
