The SLFP has agreed to the proposal to increase the current number of parliament members 225 to 250. Addressing a media conference held in Colombo today, SLFP MP John Seneviratne said that his party agreed to the proposals as it intends to give more opportunity for minor parties.

Meanwhile SLFP General Secretary Anura Priyadarshana Yapa said that his party supported the national government concept in order to solve people’s aspirations by settling certain accumulated political issues in the country.
