* Sri Lanka President to meet NFF this week to discuss proposals for reforms
Sun, Jun 15, 2014, 12:21 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 15, Colombo: Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa is expected to meet members of government coalition partner, National freedom Front (NFF) to discuss the party's proposals for government reforms this week after he returns to the island from his tour in Bolivia.

The NFF has sought a discussion with the President regarding the 12 proposals adopted at the party's second National Convention held in May.

The President met the NFF delegates and promised to discuss further after studying the proposals.

Ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has appointed a committee to discuss the proposals with the NFF.

The party strongly condemning an international UN inquiry on Sri Lanka suggested the government not to allow any "international agents" be sent to Sri Lanka to investigate the alleged war crimes.

NFF has vowed to quit the alliance with the government unless the President positively considers their proposals for reforms.
