he Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) yesterday (1) told the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) to take a stand at the final vote of the Budget this week, if they wished to form an alliance with the SLPP in the future.

This was stated by SLPP Chairman, Professor G.L. Peiris at a press conference held at the SLPP headquarters in Battaramulla.

Our third round of talks, to form a joint coalition with the SLFP, will be held just five days after the final vote on the 2019 Budget. The whole point of these talks is to form a massive coalition against the United National Party (UNP). However, the SLFP abstained from voting against the Budget last time, and this has created an atmosphere of mistrust between us. We hope that the SLFP will try to rectify this error by taking a stance this time around. They can either join with us to vote against the Budget, or side with the UNP,” suggested Prof. Peiris.
