President Sirisena rejects Mahinda Rajapaka’s conditional compromise

A proposal has been made to arrive at some level of compromise between president Maithripala Sirisena and his predecessor Mahinda Rajapaksa, says a SLFP minister.

The minister told Srilanka Mirror that the proposal from Rajapaksa’s side wants a suspension of investigations into members of his family and politicians and officials loyal to them.

In return, Rajapaksa has expressed willingness to work with president Sirisena at the upcoming general election.

This message was conveyed to the president by a top parliamentary affairs official close to Rajapaksa and a very close relative of his, through a SLFP minister this morning. However, president Sirisena has firmly turned down the proposal, said the minister.
