SLFP Takes U-Turn: Decides To Support Ranil’s Government And Accept Ministries

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party, led by former President Maithripala Sirisena, had decided to support the new government.

The SLFP has reportedly sent a letter to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe confirming their support.

Accordingly, a few ministers representing the party are likely to accept ministerial portfolios under Wickremesinghe.

The party previous said it would not extend their support to the new government. However, when the party realized that several SLFP MPs were considering to defy the party’s position, they reversed the previous position.
