JVP seniors say the situation that has cropped up around former Leader Somawansa Amarasinghe, will be resolved before May Day.

The JVP, a party which was established with the intention of representing the oppressed, has seen leaders depart periodically when the party has faced several issues.

The current crisis has arisen following the departure of one of the senior members of the party, former Leader Somawansa Amarasinghe.

JVP Politburo Member MP Sunil Handunnetti, speaking on the current issue, said that Comrade Somawansa had suddenly made a personal decision and personally convened a media briefing and made a statement adding that none of them in the JVP will make that decision.

He went on to note that they held discussions with Comrade Somawansa; as in the past, Comrade Somawansa will work with the party and with them rendering his fullest support.

However, speaking to News1st, Somawansa Amarasinghe noted that he would definitely be forming another political party.
