SLFP G15 to boycott SLFP CC meetings

Parliamentarian Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena said that they have decided to boycott the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Central Committee (CC) meetings till the Party decides to leave the Unity Government.

He said that as a result of this decision, no member of the SLFP group of 15, who withdrew from the Government, will attend the SLFP CC meeting which has been convened to be held under the President later today (20).

Abeywardena added that previously the SLFP group of 15 had received invitations to join the said meetings but that they had now sent a letter to the Party General Secretary informing of their stance regarding the SLFP continuing to remain in the national Government. He said even after sending that letter, the SLFP group of 15 MPs had received invitations in the form of text messages to their cell phones requesting them to attend the CC meeting, but he vowed not a single MP from the group will attend it.
