Feb 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the party will not form any more political alliances in the future.

JVP Leader, parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake told the media that the party is yet to decide on its strategy for the next Presidential election.

He said that the party had formed political alliances in the past and ruled out any future alliances with either the main opposition United National Party (UNP) or the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

He explained that the JVP is working with the masses since the party's political alliance in the future will be only with the people.

"The JVP has always been and will be an alternative force and the not the third force in the country," Dissanayake added.

Resolutions adopted at the 7th National Convention of the JVP held on February 02 proposed combining all struggles and giving a strong leadership to build a broad people's front of struggle by rallying all forces, organizations and individuals.
