Apr 26, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party leader Ranil Wickremasinghe has extended an invitation to constituent partner of the UNP led United National Front, the SLFP (M) Wing Leader Mangala Samaraweera to join the UNP.
Wickremasinghe and UNF Matara District parliamentarian Samaraweera are to discuss the invitation during a meeting this week, according to UNP sources.
Following the discussion, the SLFP (M) Wing politburo is expected to make the final decision.
Samaraweera formed the SLFP (M) Wing with the late Sripathi Sooriyarachchi after the duo defected from the UPFA government in 2006.
The SLFP (M) Wing first entered into an agreement with the UNP in 2007 to form the National Council. The Wing is currently a constituent member of the UNF.
