* Sri Lanka ruling party ally to hold seminar series on its proposals for reforms
Fri, Jun 6, 2014, 08:46 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 06, Colombo: The national Freedom Front (NFF), a key coalition partner of Sri Lanka's ruling party, will launch a series of seminars to raise awareness on the party's proposals for government reforms.

The politburo of the NFF through the seminar series expects to create an in-depth intelligent discussion among the public on the 12 proposals party adopted at its second National Convention in April.

The first of the seminar series under the theme "What need to be done?" will be held at 2:00 p.m. on 08 June at the Public Library Auditorium in Moneragala under the patronage of Moneragala district NFF leader Padma Udayantha Gunasekera.

NFF leader, Minister of Housing, Construction and Common Amenities Wimal Weerawansa will deliver the keynote speech at the seminar.

Two more seminars will be held at 3:00 p.m. on 10 June at Kandy Post office Auditorium and at 3:00 p.m. on 14 June at the Panadura Town Council Conference Hall.

The proposals the party put forward for government reforms are aimed at preventing the hostile forces from taking governing powers in the country.

The party last month handed over the set of proposals to the President and held a discussion with him. The President agreed to consult the senior ruling party members to discuss the proposals.

The party also handed over the proposals to religious leaders including the Buddhist chief prelates of Malwathu, Asgiri, Amarapura and Siyam Chapters and the Cardinal of the Catholic Church in Sri Lanka.
