New Political Office for MR

Colombo, 13 February, (Asiantribune.com):

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa's new political and public relations office was opened at Nelum Mawatha, Battaramulla yesterday morning.

Amidst speculations of the founding of a new party, this political office is said to be for use as a base to stage his political come-back campaign.

Rajapaksa and the 'Joint Opposition' were using Abhayaramaya in Narahenpita as the venue for media conferences. However, there is an ongoing court case against the use of Abhayaramaya for political work. The court case is to be taken up for hearing again on next Monday.

Several key stalwarts of the 'Joint Opposition' recently met at Rajapaksa's residence to discuss the details of forming a new party, political sources said.

However, it is unclear whether former President would form a new political party breaking the SLFP of which he said he would never do it.
