He said the decision was taken following a meeting between President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and UNP Ministers late this evening.
“Several matters were discussed and the final decision was that a committee will be appointed tomorrow to decide on the best way forward,” he said.
The UNP has been calling for a UNP-led Government to be formed following the Local Government (LG) elections while the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) is divided on the proposal.
The United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) meanwhile had said it will not support a Government led by Wickremesinghe. (Colombo Gazette)
