Despite public protests, problems can be solved only at the intervention of the President and Parliament: Dayasiri

Despite the public’s engagement in protests, the current political crisis can only be solved at the intervention of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Parliament, said Dayasiri Jayasekara, Secretary General of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) speaking to a briefing called in by the SLFP yesterday (10).

“It is fair that the people are taking to the streets and protesting. The people of this country are taking to the streets and demanding, the first, the stepping down of the President – Gota Go Home, and the stepping down of the Rajapaksas the second. The people demand the establishment of a Cabinet without Rajapaksas. If we are to continue the programme by forming another Cabinet otherwise, the people’s definite willingness to take to the streets again cannot be stopped. It is in this backdrop are we suggesting the formation of an interim government in order to formulate a programme for a defined period of time. No matter how harder the people demonstrate on the streets, the problem can be solved only at the collective intervention of the President and Parliament.”
