Dullas-led group to support SJB alliance

The Freedom Peoples Congress (Nidahasa Janatha Sabhawa) led by MP Dullas Alahapperuma has decided to form an alliance with the main Opposition, the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB).

Party member MP Charitha Herath said the decision was taken as negotiations with the SJB were successful.

MP Herath further said the Freedom Peoples Congress will face the Presidential Election via a broad political force.

In April this year, the SJB signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a group of members from the Freedom People’s Congress as the first step of forming the main opposition-led ‘Samagi Jana Sandhanaya’.

The agreement was signed between the SJB and 06 MPs of the Freedom Peoples Congress, including Prof. G.L. Peiris, Dilan Perera, Dr. Nalaka Godahewa, K.P. Kumarasiri, Dr. Upul Galappaththi and Wasantha Yapa Bandara, to form the new alliance.

The group of MPs from the Freedom Peoples Congress are those who broke away from the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna previously and decided to sit independently in Parliament. (Newswire)
