COLOMBO (News1st): Two political parties have inked an agreement pledging support to five key policies, days ahead of the August 5 parliamentary election.

The agreement had been signed between the National Freedom Front (NFF) and the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) on Saturday.

Both parties had pledged to risk their lives to protect the country’s war heroes and to not be part of a government that relies on Wahabism extremists.

They also pledged to prevent the US and other western forces from entering into the country.

According to the agreement, both parties had promised to create a market for the innovations brough forward by Sri Lankan youth, while conserving the strategically important national resources of the country.

Another pledge was that, if their faction wins the election, a system would be re-established to revive the uniqueness of Sri Lanka and to create a better future of this country.

“When we were in the opposition, we made numerous promises to the people of this country,” Udaya Gammanpila, the PHU leader said. “This agreement is proof of our promise”.
