Party sources say that there is a conflict between the party leaders who represents the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna regarding the forming an alliance with small parties. Agreement was signed last Friday in this regard. But, some political party leaders boycotted the event. Some political leaders have expressed their objection regarding the SLPP’s decision to give a quota to small parties which contains a very small voter base.
Meanwhile, MP Kumara Welgama says that in future elections he will contest with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and he is not a member of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna.
