The United National Party (UNP) today said that Parliament will be dissolved soon and elections will be held for a new Parliament.
Leader of the House and UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella said that the UNP wants a majority in Parliament to do most of the things it promised the people.
He said that now the Government is a minority in Parliament and so it is unable to function smoothly.
Kiriella also said that the opposition is split with two factions blaming each other over the loss at the last polls.
He said the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) is dreaming of winning the next Parliament election but the UNP is confident the SLFP will lose.
Kiriella claimed that several SLFP members are now seeking nominations from the UNP for the Parliament elections.
The UNP MP also said that his party is confident President Maithripala Sirisena has his heart with the UNP despite being an SLFP member. (Colombo Gazette)
