One On One Meeting Between President And PM Today: Discussions To Seize Power In Many LG Bodies As United Front
Published Date: 12/02/2018 (Monday)

One of one meeting between President Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickremesinghe is scheduled to take place today, informed political sources said.

the meeting comes in the wake of the defeat suffered by the ruling alliance at the Local Government election. 

The discussion is aimed at striking an agreement between the two main parties to seize power in a number of Local Government bodies as a united political force. 

The President is currently holding a discussion with a group of SLFP ministers on their future course of action. A sizable proportion of SLFP ministers are also pushing for a truce with the UNP, Asian Mirror reliably learns.

Meanwhile, speaking to Asian Mirror earlier today, a senior Cabinet Minister said the unity government paid the price for contesting the election as divided groups.

"in many Local Government bodies, the total votes received by the UNP. the SLFP and the JVP are higher than the votes received by the SLPP." 

"At the Presidential election in January, 2015, all these groups represented the good governance front. It means the mandate for good governance is still valid," he added. 

However, the Minister said the good governance front had to suffer a setback as it contested as divided groups. "We were fighting among ourselves. That's the main reason for the defeat."
