The Joint Opposition is making arrangements to form a coalition yet again between President Maithripala Sirisena and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, a source said.

A comprehensive discussion in this regard was also held between several senior members of the Joint Opposition, the source added.

The Joint Opposition would too hold in depth discussions in a bid to form the coalition between the President and the former President within next few weeks.

Maithripala Sirisena, who was the Common Candidate of the opposition, defeated Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Presidential Election and formed the coalition government with the United National Party and the other parties of the common opposition.
