Maithripala signs MoU with JHU

President Rajapaksa's former coalition partner, the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the opposition candidate for the forthcoming presidential election, Maithripala Sirisena, reported Colombo Gazette.

The JHU had put forward some proposals to the opposition candidate, which were rejected by Mahinda Rajapaksa, causing the party run by Buddhist monks to leave the ruling UPFA coalition.

Earlier today Sirisena signed an MoU with other opposition parties, including the UNP.
