Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today noted the importance of the alliance between the United National Party (UNP) and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).
Speaking at the launch of a housing project in Pannipitiya, the Prime Minister said as a result of the decision taken by the two main political parties to form a unity Government, Sri Lanka is receiving international financial assistance.
“We could have followed the old saying that we do not need to work with anyone else. But lets see how things go when we work together,” the Prime Minister said.
He said that at the next election the voters will have only good to say about both sides and will pick the best candidate.
The Prime Minister said that the unity Government has been able to control the debt from the past and take the country forward.
Wickremesinghe said that both main political parties in the country working together is not an easy task yet it needs to be done for the benefit of the country. (Colombo Gazette)
