Ranil Wickramasinghe has sent a message to President Maithripala Sirisena saying that he will never take revenge on the President.
After President Maithripala Sirisena’s government change, the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) led by the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), and United National Front (UNF) led by the United National Party (UNP), are facing political changes. Both parties have launched missions to win majority support in the parliament.
Per request by Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe, Mr. Rajitha Senaratne and Mr. John Amarathunga have met President Maithreepala Sirisena on last Saturday (03) night.
When the President has unexpectedly appointed a new Prime Minister, the Budget report for 2019 by the Yahapalana Government was fixed with dates to be presented to the Parliament. Accordingly, the Budget report was just finalized.
Today (02) Speaker of Parliament Mr. Karu Jayasuriya has informed the Parliamentary members that if the President will not convene the Parliament on the coming 07, he will be acting on his own will to convene the Parliament.
Internal sources of the Joint Opposition inform that the supporters of Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapakshe have been devastated with the political game pulled by Mr. Basil Rajapakshe, the founder of the ‘Pohottu’ Party, for making Mr. Mahinda Rajapakshe as the Prime Minister using President Maithreepala Sirisena.
