SLPP Parliamentarian Shehan Semasinghe said that public rallies and meetings will be held in all the districts next year to gather support for early Parliamentary elections.
Semasinghe told reporters that the joint opposition, including the SLPP, will look to make Mahinda Rajapaksa Prime Minister again.
“The Government must bring a motion to Parliament next month and call for early elections,” Semasinghe said.
The MP warned that 2019 is also expected to be a crisis year for the country as there is instability in the Government.
He said that several MPs are fighting for posts in the Government and this is expected to create political instability in the country next year.
Semasinghe also insisted that the United National Party (UNP) had reached a written agreement with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) for the TNA to support the UNP in Parliament despite the TNA saying no.
He called on the Government to make the agreement public without keeping it under cover. (Colombo Gazette)
