A National Government to be formed before the Sinhala-Tamil New Year…?

According to internal sources, a national government will be formed by the Sri Lanka People’s Front, the United National Party, and other parties before the upcoming Sinhala-Tamil New Year.

Lanka News Web told this months ago that this would happen in the future.

It is said that this national government is to be formed to obtain international support in a context where massive international assistance is essential to help the country recover from the critical economic crisis it is currently facing.

According to sources, UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe will be the new Prime Minister while Basil Rajapaksa will continue to be the Finance Minister.

Although he is currently the only UNP MP in parliament, sources said that Ranil Wickremesinghe will join the national government with a group of about 15 members from the Samagi Jana Balawegaya. It is reported that Basil Rajapaksa has agreed to remove five people from the Pohottu National List and instead allow a group from the UNP to enter Parliament.

Sources said that as a special feature of this national government, the TNA will also be given three powerful ministerial posts.

India is playing a major role in the formation of this national government and will fully enforce the 13th Amendment to the Constitution to provide a political solution to the problems of the Tamil people in the North and East that have been simmering for more than a decade after the end of the war. We also feel that this should be considered as a very progressive step, especially in order to achieve economic stability in the country, as political stability must be achieved first and it is not possible to move forward without any answer to the problems of the Tamil people that have been dragging on for decades.

This will definitely resolve the issues raised by the United Nations Human Rights Commission and the European Union and the country will be able to seek their full support for the future development of Sri Lanka.

Accordingly, the removal of Wimal Weerawansa and Udaya Gammanpila from the ministry could be considered as a parallel step.
