National Organizer of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Parliamentarian Duminda Dissanayake claims no faction can produce a President, without the support of the SLFP.

Speaking at an event in Anuradhapura, MP Dissanayake stressed the SLFP will not be allowed to dissolve within the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna. 

He said the decisive power behind who will be elected as the President at the next Presidential Election is the Sri Lanka freedom Party.

He stressed no one has the ability to elect a President without the 1.5 million SLFP votes.

The MP meanwhile said discussions continue with the SLPP, adding the President and MP Mahinda Rajapaksa also met.

He noted there will be more discussions in future, further remarking however that a conclusion is yet to be reached.
