Mahinda Amaraweera has proposed to contest from the Colombo District at the next general election. This proposal has been presented by the SLFP which he is representing.
This proposal has been put forward due to the lack of strong leadership for the Colombo District.
Several SLFP organizers representing the Colombo district have proposed about this to the party, however, Mahinda Amaraweera has not yet responded.
Mahinda Amaraweera is the General Secretary of the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and is currently the SLFP Hambantota District Leader.
