eksath_purawasi-1.jpgFormer Health Minister Tissa Attanayake today launched a new political party named as the‘United Citizen’s Front’ and invited those who had been suppressed and intimidated by the ‘yahapalanaya’ government to join the new party.Mr. Attanayake was appointed as the leader of the party.“Our party policies are based on liberal and democratic beliefs with the economic policies being a mix of trade and welfare. As a new party, we are facing several hurdles because we are in middle of a parliamentary election. However, we are not discouraged and the launch is only the beginning,” he said.

Mr. Attanayake said the present government was not a government of Mr. Clean but a government of an imperial regime and the United National Party (UNP) would be defeated at the parliamentary election.

“United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) will secure more than 115 seats and we will support them. UNP members and supporters fed up with this ‘Yahapalanaya’ government can join us,” he said.

Mr. Attanayake is the former UNP General Secretary who pledged his support to ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa at the January 8 presidential election. The UPFA has included Mr. Attanayakein its national list.
