President Mahinda Rajapaksa directed SLFP General Secretary Maithripala Sirisena yesterday to abolish the party’s electorate organizer posts and create district party organizer posts and requested all party organizers to work as a team in each district, the SLFP headquarters said.
President Rajapaksa said all party district leaders and organizers should work as a team with team spirit to come to the fore and immediately stop competition among one another to gain preference votes.
A new political culture and a group of party people who were first and foremost people oriented were needed by the country.
In the existing party and preference vote systems it was no secret that organizers of the same political party were engaged in a fight for preference votes, he said.
