JVP Decides To Contest Parliamentary Election Under The Symbol "Compass" With All Forces Representing NPP

December 06, 2019

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna has decided to contest the upcoming Parliamentary election, under the same alliance as the Presidential election.

Informed party sources said the JVP would contest the Parliamentary election under the NPP symbol 'compass'.

All parties which supported the JVP at the Presidential election are expected to support the party for the Parliamentary election.

However, at the Presidential election, the JVP managed to secure only 3% of the total valid votes.

The Parliamentary election is expected to take place during the week of April, if President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa dissolves the current Parliament on March 01.
