JO decides to go ahead with no-confidence motion on PM

The Joint Opposition (JO) has decided to go ahead with the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

The decision was taken when the party leaders in the joint opposition met today.

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was among those who attended the meeting.

The no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was to be handed over to Parliament earlier but was postponed as a result of the violence in Kandy. (Colombo Gazette)
