Reports about change of government untrue: Ajith

Minister Ajith P. Perera says reports are being circulated that a change of government is likely to take place prior to the presidential election and that these reports are baseless.

The minister said he frequently holds discussions with the Prime Minister and the members of the Cabinet, emphasizing that he is not aware of any change of government.

Reports of this sort are being circulated by parties seeking to destabilize the country, he added.

The Prime Minister can be removed only through a motion of no confidence passed by Parliament, he said, adding that he does not know whether President Maithripala Sirisena learnt a lesson the last time he acted arbitrarily.
