At meeting with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today it was decided that a committee will be appointed to decide the next course of action to be taken by the joint opposition.
Most joint opposition members were elected to Parliament through the UPFA.
However the joint opposition wants the opposition leader to be a man from the joint opposition.
Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has however refused to remove the current opposition leader, R. Sampantha. (Colombo Gazette)
