The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has officially declared their allegiance to Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential Candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa upon the coming presidential election today (09).
Accordingly, Gotabaya Rajapaksa's inaugural public rally in Anuradhapura will be associated by SLFP members too, reports said.
SLFP's former Secretary General Parliamentarian Duminda Dissanyake and its Media Spokesman Parliamentarian Weerakumara Dissanayake will be attending the rally representing the Party.
Meanwhile, presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa has visited Duminda Dissanayake's home before attending the Anuradhapura rally. Duminda Dissanayake welcomed him warmly and a large number of supporters of both parties were present.
Duminda Dissanayake, who was one of the few who came out of the SLFP alongside Maithripala Sirisena who contested as the common candidate against political rival Mahinda Rajapaksa at the 2015 presidential election, was a constant anti-Rajapaksist. However, he has come forward to support Gotabaya Rajapakse by sparing all disagreements.
