SLFP insists on a common symbol for alliance with SLPP: Dayasiri

Dayasiri J 700 02

Sri Lanka Freedom Party General Secretary Parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekara has urged the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna to agree to a common symbol for the coalition. He was addressing the media at the SLPP Headquarters. During his media briefing, Jayasekera said:

“We cannot ask SLPP supporters to vote for the hand symbol. At the same time, it is unfair to ask SLFP supporters to vote for the flower bud. Therefore, a neutral symbol is the only way to solve this issue and find common ground, so both parties can form a stronger alliance.

The SLPP should be more flexible on symbol selection. The SLFP had been flexible on SLPP terms and policies during coalition talks, and therefore the SLPP should be willing to compromise more on the symbol.

We have been able to agree on most of the policies presented during the coalition talks. But the symbol is the only thing we were unable to agree upon. They have not shown any flexibility when it comes to a symbol. I hope we will be able to resolve this and form the proposed coalition.”
