President confirmed his resignation only verbally, says Speaker

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa never confirmed his resignation officially, but merely made a verbal assurance, said Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena, leading to a heated situation among party leaders as he made this observation addressing the the party leaders’ meeting in Parliament this (11) afternoon.

The party leaders were of the strong opinion that Ranil Wickremesinghe too should resign from his post as the Prime Minister as the people have opposed not only the President but the Prime Minister as well. Accordingly, an all-party government must be allowed to be formed, the party leaders noted.

However, the Prime Minister did not respond to the opinions raised by the party leaders and continued to maintain his familiar silence.

Parliament is expected to be convened this Friday and address the current crisis and the party leaders have agreed that a new President be elected upon Rajapaksa’s resignation.
