Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) front liner Basil Rajapaksa stated that they would contest the upcoming Local Government election as a broad alliance with other political parties and would secure more than 200 Pradeshiya Sabhas. The statement was made at a news conference held on Thursday. Several political parties have agreed to contest the upcoming election as an alliance with the Podujana Peramuna and the decision is yet be finalized.

“We would align with the parties in the joint opposition and several other parties. We have also discussed with Northern Tamil parties which are against Tamil National Alliance (TNA). We have not decided whether to contest under a common symbol or as a front just as how the UNP contested at the last general election or under different symbols,” he said.

He said however, they had agreed on several key matters including those of contesting the election campaign on a common manifesto and under the leadership of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa. Mr. Rajapaksa said they would launch their election campaign considering it as a referendum against the government on its anti-democratic actions, economic crisis, mounting cost of living, selling of state resources, crippling of village level development, non-generation of employments and matters related to the Constitution.
