Several parliamentarians elected to Parliament from the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) and the All Ceylon Makkal Congress (ACMC) are having discussions to join hands under a different banner to extend their support to the Government, sources said.

The proposed political party has been named, Muslim National Alliance.A newly elected SLMC parliamentarian has taken the lead to form the new party. He met Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa on several occasions and held discussions in this connection, the sources said. The members discussed supporting the Government on the 20th Amendment in Parliament too.

However, Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) sources said they would not entertain any discussions with parliamentarians Rauf Hakeem and Rishad Bathiudeen or welcome them to the Government.
