SLMC likely to back Sirisena in SL presidential election

[TamilNet, Monday, 22 December 2014, 14:08 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) has appealed to public servants that they should cast their votes according to their conscience giving 'preference' to 'democracy'. Mr. Rauf Hakim, the SL minister of Justice has said that the SLMC had not taken any decision as to whom the Muslim voters should cast their votes in the SL presidential election to take place on January 08. Postal voting of government servants is to begin on Tuesday.

In the meantime, the common opposition candidate Maithiripala Sirisena has gone on record stating that a key political party in the ruling United People Freedom Alliance (UPFA) will be joining his front.

Mr. Maithiripala Sirisena was speaking at a media briefing with the All Ceylon Muslim Congress leader and SL Minister Rishard Badurdeen on Monday evening. Sirisena was accompanied by the SL Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and former SL President Chandrika Kumaranatunga.
