The United National Party (UNP) says it is prepared to work with President Maithripala Sirisena again in the Government.
UNP deputy leader Sajith Premadasa said that Sirisena had agreed to appoint UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe as Prime Minister again.
Premadasa said that he was not surprised that the President had agreed to appoint Wickremesinghe as Prime Minister despite taking a firm position earlier that he will not appoint Wickremesinghe.
He said this showed the true character of the President.
Premadasa said that the President was misled by some groups who were against the unity Government and this resulted in the President removing Wickremesinghe.
“But now truth has prevailed,” he said.
Premadasa said that the lessons from the incident must be used to strengthen the foundation of democracy and promote justice and fairness. (Colombo Gazette)
