The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) invited former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to join their new political party.
National Organizer of the BBS Ven. Witharandeniye Nanda Thera said that while Rajapaksa had expressed his desire to enter politics, he has yet to make a final decision.
The Thera added that the BBS was having talks with several persons regarding the party, adding that they had discussed registration of the party and other associated matter with Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya.
The party would most probably be fielding candidates at the General Election, he said.
The party was also working on a party symbol and name and will be continuing its work as a party whilst awaiting registration from the Elections Department, Nanda Thera explained.
