The Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC) and the Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) have decided to extend support to newly appointed Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Two Parliamentarians representing the CWC in Parliament led by Arumugam Thondaman said they will support Rajapaksa as Ranil Wickremesinghe had failed to address their concerns.
He said that newly appointed Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has assured that he will resolve the daily wage issue of the plantation sector.
Meanwhile the Tamil Progressive Alliance (TPA) led by Mano Ganesan has decided to support Ranil Wickremesinghe. (Colombo Gazette)
