Aug 05, Colombo: Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) the main constituent party of Sri Lanka's ruling alliance United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA), today officially admitted the proposals submitted by the coalition party National Freedom Front (NFF).

Addressing a press briefing held in Colombo with the participation of the SLFP and NFF leaders, general secretary of the SLFP Minister Maithripala Sirisena said that the SLFP had accepted the NFF proposals with amendments.

NFF leader Wimal Weerawansa said that the SLFP had agreed to prepare an action plant to implement eight important proposals out of the 12 proposals for reforms the NFF adopted at its second national convention.

SLFP general secretary Maithripala Sirisena handed over a copy of the proposals endorsed by the ruling party.

The party earlier vowed to leave the ruling party if the proposals for reforms were disregarded by the government.

The NFF leader said that the party was discussing with the UPFA to contest Moneragala district under the coalition with the new agreement reached today.

NFF has already handed over nominations to contest the Badulla district separately at the Uva Provincial Council election.
