Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe has decided to call a meeting of party leaders to discuss the current crisis situation. In addition, the Prime Minister has informed Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena to convene Parliament as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, Samagi Jana Balawega has decided not to participate in any discussion called by the Prime Minister.
The party says that the President had decided to bow to the people’s opinion when the entire people of the country were urging him to step down. However, the Samagi Jana Balawegaya emphasizes that the President changed his decision due to Ranil Wickramasinghe assuming the post of Prime Minister, and because of this, Ranil Wickramasinghe defended the President who lost the power of the people.
SJB further says that he is not ready for any discussion with Wickramasinghe, who defended such a person.
