The meeting between United National Front (UNF) party leaders and President Maithripala Sirisena has been postponed for next week.
UNF member and Minister of National Coexistence Dialogue and Official Languages Mano Ganeshan said that crucial current issues were to be discussed at the meeting which was earlier scheduled for today. He now says the meeting has been set for Monday.
It was reported over the weekend that the UNF led by the United National Party (UNP) is considering forming its own Government after December 31.
Well informed sources said that the UNF is unhappy with the recent actions of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) which have been fueled by the joint opposition. Sources said that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and President Maithripala Sirisena had also met and discussed the political situation in the country.
Several SLFP members have been verbally attacking the UNP despite both parties being in the coalition Government.
It was reported that some Ministers and Deputy Ministers of the UNP have said they would resign if the UNP continues to remain a coalition partner of the SLFP. (Colombo Gazette)
