Meanwhile, a SLPP committee in Gampaha has recommended contesting the LG polls under an alliance also consisting of the UNP and other supporting parties.
Its members Sahan Pradeep Vithana, Kokila Harshani Gunawardena, Sandya Siriwardena and Ananda Harishchandra handed over a report of findings to minister Prasanna Ranatunga today.
The committee sought the random opinion of party members in 19 LG bodies in the district and met in the past two days to prepare the report.
