President to make a special statement this week on unity Government

President Maithripala Sirisena is to make a special statement this week on the future of the unity Government.

The statement comes after various proposals were made on the future course of action to be taken with regards to the unity Government.

A committee was earlier appointed to decide on the future of the unity Government following a meeting between President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and UNP Ministers.

The UNP has been calling for a UNP-led Government to be formed following the Local Government (LG) elections while the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) is divided on the proposal.

The United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) meanwhile had said it will not support a Government led by Wickremesinghe. (Colombo Gazette)
