SLFP To Announce Decision On Election At Party General Assembly On September 13: Amaraweera Says Talks With SLPP Will Continue

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party would announce its decision on the Presidential election at the General Assembly of the party on September 03, UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera said.

Addressing a press conference in Colombo today, Amaraweera said his party would not announce its decision in haste. Several party stalwarts have stated that they will field President Maithripala Sirisena as the party's Presidential candidate.

However, the party has already indicated that it will try to strike an agreement with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) before the election.

"Final decision will be made based on the progress of the discussions," he added.
