Feb 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) is planning to establish a broad election front, party sources say.
The discussions on this broad election front is being held these days with the other political parties, trade unions and civil society organizations, artistes and activists, a party spokesman said.
