August 23, 2015 11:13 pm
The MP-elects of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) have been given freedom to choose whether to join the National Government or function in the opposition, MP-elect Mahinda Amaraweera quoted the President as saying.
President Maithripala Sirisena has made the observation during a meeting held at the President’s official residence in Colombo this evening (23), said Amaraweera.
However, sources close to the SLFP told Ada Derana that many MP-elects including Wimal Weerawansam, Dinesh Gunawardena, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, and Udaya Gammanpila have already decided to function in the opposition.
