JVP defectors in secret talks for return

The JVP is in secret talks with several members of Wimal Weerawansa's National Freedom Front (NFF) for their return to the party fold The Sunday Leader learns.

It is learned two rounds of talks have been held between the JVP leadership and the disgruntled NFF members on the timing of their return to the party.

Informed sources said the NFF members decided to open negotiations with the JVP after Weerawansa failed to deliver on the promises made with regard to public office and other benefits allegedly promised by the government.

It is learned Weerawansa's failure to get the deputy speaker's post and chairmanship of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) for NFF nominees from the government were central to their discontent.

It is learned some members may return to the JVP before the provincial polls scheduled for August 23 if the negotiations are successful.
