Admitting that the SLFP has conducted a number of discussions with the SLPP on the matter, he said they have not had discussions with the UNP. He also stressed however he will also not hold any discussions with thieves who robbed the Central Bank.
The President made these comments at the SLFP district convention held yesterday evening (15).
“Both parties are seeking our support”
The President also revealed that the SLFP has received invitations from both parties but has not held a discussion with the UNP. According to him, the SLFP held discussions with the SLPP as the SLFP places the motherland in the number one spot while the party’s identity is the next important factor for them.
He also said he will not allow anyone to underestimate the SLFP and is prepared to show the party’s power to both the UNP and the SLPP.
The President also assured the party is prepared to undertake a programme that will ensure that SLFP party members are not treated unfairly.
