Opposition leader Sajith Premadasa will be the presidential candidate of the alliance we are forming together. The main force of the force we are building is the Samagi Jana Force,” said Mr. Dylan Perera, a member of the Free People’s Assembly.
He stated this while attending a press conference held at the opposition leader’s office today.
The Free Janata Sabha decided to join with the opposition leader Sajith Premadasa on July 20, 2022. The 13 members of parliament representing the Free Janata Sabha decided that the opposition groups inside the parliament and the opposition groups outside the parliament should form a joint general alliance. Accordingly, Samagi Janata Balawegaya, National Janata Balawegaya, Sri Lanka Freedom Party, Communist Party, Tamil National Alliance held talks with the Free Janata Sabha. But many political parties agreed to work against the government but did not agree to unite for an election.
The alliance to be formed with the opposition political parties should be formed soon. Because we do not know which election will come first in the future. There is enough butter for the parliamentary elections. It is finished forming the Samagi Janabalavega. If there is a presidential election, you need to make an icing cake. Because of what the current president did in the local government election, it is impossible to say which election will be held in the future. I don’t even know if I will have to fight to win the elections.
We have to come to a consensus to drive the government. Therefore, if we agree on things that we can agree on and disagree on other things, we can only win if there is a presidential election.
All groups of the opposition party should come together to send the government home. If the government is not kept together, the government will lose. It happened to Rapakshala.
Instead of going to the government to get ministers from the opposition party, the members of parliament join the opposition by leaving the government ministers. To win a presidential election, all the political parties of the opposition must come together.
If the aim is to send the government home, then the merger is essential.
