The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today urged the public to make them the next main opposition party in Parliament.
JVP Propaganda Secretary Vijitha Herath told reporters today that it is clear neither the United National Party or the Sri Lanka Freedom Party will obtain more than 113 seats at the Parliamentary election next week and so there will not be a stable Government.
He said that the letters exchanged between President Maithripala Sirisena and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has changed the direction of the political situation in the country.
The JVP member said that the letter sent by Sirisena states that the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) will not be able to get 113 seats in Parliament at the election.
He said that if the President, as UPFA chairman, feels the UPFA will not obtain 113 seats then it is clear the Government which comes to power will not be stable and the JVP will need to play the role of the main opposition.
Herath urged the voters to make JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake the opposition leader by giving the JVP the votes it needs to be a strong opposition in Parliament. (Colombo Gazette)
