If Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is removed from the post of President, as there is a risk of Basil Rajapaksa becoming the acting President, says Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa.
“The first thing is that the Prime Minister and his cabinet should resign. We need to create a new regime that can build trust and stability. Some say Gotabhaya Rajapaksa should also leave. But if Gotabhaya leaves another person who has the 113 majority will become the acting president. What if Basil Rajapaksa, who is now in hiding, comes out and wins 113? Then Basil will become the acting president. Is that what you want?
He said that what needs to be done now is to get Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to agree to a collective decision-making program and to establish a stable government that will recover from the problems faced by the country.
Wimal Weerawansa stated this addressing a conference held yesterday (21).
