Political arena unfolds plot twist: Opposition MPs set to jump ship amid election frenzy!

May 30, Colombo (LNW): With the presidential election approaching, the political climate in Sri Lanka is becoming increasingly unpredictable, mirroring the fluctuating weather these days.

Previously, it was reported that a group from the opposition would join the government on May 31, with the number speculated to be seven.

However, recent developments have altered this narrative.

The latest information suggests that the defection will occur on a day when Parliament is in session.

There are two prevailing scenarios regarding how this transition will unfold.

One version suggests that on June 4, three MPs from the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) will cross over to the government.

Alternatively, another account posits that these defections will occur individually on June 3, 4, and 5.

Notably, there is a senior politician among those expected to switch allegiance, according to sources.

Given the history of switching party affiliations over the past two years, it is challenging to predict with certainty until the final moment.

Notwithstanding, government sources remain confident that this time the defections will materialise, and the media, therefore, is compelled to wait and see how the situation develops.
