Samagi Jana Balawegaya claims UNP set to join Government

The Samagi Jana Balawegaya claims the United National Party (UNP) is set to join the Government.

Former UNP Parliamentarian and now a member of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya, Lakshman Kiriella claimed that some UNP members are in talks with the Government.

“We have information that the UNP is to join the Government,” he told reporters today.

He said that some UNP members have said that they will join the Government if invited to do so.

However, he said that the Samagi Jana Balawegaya led by UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa, will not join the Government.

He said that the Samagi Jana Balawegaya will form its own Government after the next Parliamentary election.

Kiriella said he was confident the current Government will lose the next Parliamentary election. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. They know for sure that they have no future in the UNP. Also there are habitual parliamentarians who jump ship when calamity strikes. These people are no good to any party. Just think about it – they are the winners – always in power ! වාසි අතට හෝයියා.

  2. They are not genuine, honest politicians. If LTTE had come to power they would have supported the terrorists. Our people are so short sighted, they would still vote for them. We need a fundamental change in judgement and voting to get rid of these selfish, non educated, good for nothing politicians.
