SL Presidential Election : Vote wisely, don’t permit destruction of SLFP - Welgama
COLOMBO (The Island/ANN ) - Senior SLFP MP Kumara Welgama said that true SLFPers would not support those who were trying to destroy their party.
He said that SLFPers should use their vote wisely at the November 16 Presidential Election, to ensure that there would be no erosion of the SLFP’s vote base and the party retained its historic identity created by the late S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike.
"I will not tell others whom they should vote for on November 16", Welgama noted adding that he would cast his vote for a candidate other than the one put forward by the Podujana Peramuna.
Welgama, identifying himself as the most senior SLFPer next to SLFP Patron and former President Chandrika Kumaratunga, said that he would not permit Johnny-Come-Latelys to decimate his party.
Advising members of the Organisation to Protect the SLFP, not to fear disciplinary action initiated by a person who had kept jumping from party to party and was now using the SLFP to fulfil his agenda, Welgama pointed out that it was such persons who would eventually be thrown out of the party.
