Although a final decision was scheduled to be taken with regard to preparing the UPFA’s nomination list at the discussion held last night with the President, it has been postponed to tomorrow.
Minister S. B. Dissanayake said that this was due to the need to hold further discussions with parties representing the Alliance.
Responding to a query of our news team , the Minister said that there was a difficulty in fulfilling the requests of all constituent parties of the UPFA.
However, Minister S. B. Dissanayake also said that while a final decision was scheduled to be arrived at, by tomorrow, the President was due to make a statement subsequently.
Meanwhile, a meeting of UPFA party leaders requesting that former president Mahinda Rajapaksa be made the prime ministerial candidate is scheduled to be held this forenoon.
MEP leader, Dinesh Gunawardhana said that at this meeting discussion was scheduled to be held about election propaganda activities and the current political climate.
