Joint opposition Parliamentarian C.B. Ratnayake said that all 53 members of the joint opposition will support the no-confidence motion if it is presented to Parliament.
United National Party (UNP) leader, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is facing a fresh revolt in the UNP led by State Minister Palitha Range Bandara.
The revolt threatens to split the UNP like it did when there was a push a few years back to make Sajith Premadasa the party leader and Prime Ministerial candidate.
Bandara had said earlier that there needs to be key changes in the UNP and that includes a change in the leadership.
He said without making changes in the UNP leadership the party will not be able to move forward.
Ratnayake said that it was good to see people like Bandara standing up for what is right. (Colombo Gazette)
