President holds discussions with independent MPs

The government has decided to hold further discussions with the group of 11 parties currently operating in Parliament as an independent group and the group of parliamentarians who are independent of the SLPP. Accordingly, President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has invited the two groups to attend a discussion.

The discussion is scheduled for this afternoon.

The two independent groups had earlier submitted a series of 11 proposals to the President to form an interim government, which will be discussed further today.

The current government, which had a two-thirds majority in parliament, has lost that two-thirds majority and is in danger of losing a simple majority in parliament. At present, the ruling party has less than 120 seats.

Meanwhile, the support of independent groups is crucial for the government as they are preparing to table a no-confidence motion in parliament.
