A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) & the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) today.

The agreement was signed by SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekara and SLPP General Secretary Sagara Kariyawasam at a ceremony in Colombo.

The agreement stipulates that the SLFP extends its support to the SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the forthcoming presidential elections.

It also includes forming the “Sri Lanka Nidahas Podujana Sandhanaya” alliance to contest the upcoming general elections, provincial council elections and the pradeshiya sabha elections under the ‘Chair ‘symbol.

According to Jayasekara the collaboration between both parties will generate 6.5 million votes in the presidential polls scheduled to be held on 16 October.

The SLPP will sign two more Memoranda of Understanding in the coming days with the SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapakse and leaders of the SLPP.
