The United National Party (UNP) today approved the forming of the new alliance “United National Front for Good Governance” to contest the forthcoming General Election under ‘Elephant’ symbol.

The new political alliance was approved at the UNP’s special convention currently underway at Campbell Park in Colombo while the party is to be registered after the election.

Ada Derana reported yesterday (10) that a new political alliance led by the UNP, under the name of “United National Front for Good Governance,” is to contest the parliamentary election on August 17 with sections of the SLFP and JHU. 

Several prominent figures of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) who had not signed UPFA nominations, the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) which was recently rebranded as the United National Front for Good Governance as well as certain left-leaning parties are set to join under the UNP’s “elephant” symbol.

The decision was officially announced today (July 11) after the UNP approved the proposal at the party’s special convention held in Colombo.
