The deadline to submit applications to the Elections Secretariat for the registration by new political parties closed Wesdnday June 30. Sixty political groups have submitted their applications to the Elections Commissioner for registration. Except two, details of other new political groups are not available to media immediately.

General (retired) Sarath Fonseka submitted his application to register his own new party under the name “Democratic Peoples Alliance” (DPA) with Tiran Alles as the General Secretary. Currently Fonseka does not have his own political party although he heads the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) led by Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP).
