Dinesh wants Dallus recognied as JO leader in his absence

Joint Opposition (JO) leader Dinesh Gunawardena wants Parliamentarian Dallus Alahapperuma to be recognised as the joint opposition leader in Parliament, in his absence.

Gunawardena made the request to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya.

Speaking in Parliament, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that Alahapperuma can be given such recognition only if the leader of the United People’s Alliance (UPFA) Maithripala Sirisena agrees as Gunawardena and Alahapperuma are both members of the UPFA.

Alahapperuma said that the joint opposition must be allowed to express its views in Gunawardena’s absence. (Colombo Gazette)
