At an event held in Colombo, questions were asked whether Minister Susil Premajayantha, Minister of Science, Technology and Research is hoping to unite the SLFP and Joint Opposition after the election.

Minister Premajayantha expressed his views in this regard:

No. We wanted to do it before the election but that opportunity is now long gone. After the results of the elections are released, everyone will understand how power will be established according to the electoral system.”

He further stated that the decision will be taken with time, and that even though this is just the LG election, more things could be expected to take place. That they will be paving the way for those possibilities as well.

Further, another question was raised on a UNP member joining the SLFP.

Will this be an issue for good governance?

“No. It will not be an issue for good governance. It is like the saloon doors during the time of Mahinda Rajapaksa. It opens both ways. The same thing is happening today as well,” said Minister of Science, Technology and Research, Susil Premajayantha.
