Many members of the United National Party have joined the Freedom Alliance pledging to support the government’s programme of developing the village.

With the commencement of the Matale District Local Government election campaign a group of UNP supporters of Alu Vihare secured membership of the Freedom Alliance from Deputy Minister Rohana Dissanayake.

In the meantime, over 100 UNP activists, including a regional leader of Tissapura at Thambalagamuwa ditched the UNP and joined the Freedom Alliance.  The group met a former Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman of the Freedom Alliance and joined the Party.
