SLMC to contest with UNP

asraffThe Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) is planning to contest the general election with the United National Party ( UNP) , its leader Rauff Hakeem said today.

Mr. Hakeem who was approached by a few journalists when he was coming out of UNP headquarters Sirikotha last afternoon said he was on his way after a meeting with UNP leader and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and his party had decided to sign an MOU with the UNP soon.

The SLMC was originally planning to contest alone but Mr. Hakeem said the SLMC later decided that it was advantageous for the party to contest with the UNP. (Yohan Perera)
