President and Sajith agree to work together

President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa have agreed to work together to address critical issues in the country.

The agreement was reached during talks held between the President and the Opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) today.

“During the meeting the President formally invited the SJB to join an all-party Government. Some were positive some negative. But all agreed to explore how to help Sri Lanka out of crisis,” SJB MP Dr. Harsha de Silva tweeted.

As a result the President had reportedly proposed an “all party governance” system.

Dr. Harsha de Silva said that the 90 minute discussion was positive and that Premadasa attended the meeting with a “positive mindset” and wished to see how best they could all work together through Parliament.

The SJB had also told the President to lift the State of Emergency and release the protesters who have been arrested. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. We see prices of essential items coming down, supply of Fuel, Gas moving along, Power cuts minimize – nature giving a helping hand – and Sri Lanka is still at the initial stage of reconciliation of political parties. These are good signs and it is an achievement for a nation whose President deserted – jump and run. Some bargain hunters may still erect hurdles to amass what they can at this troubled times. We see some redundant politicians past their date of expiry, still making winding speeches that can be said with 2 or 3 words. They belong to NAAKI MADAMS. But these are essential evils of democracy. For all those who drag on with these rhetoric, please remember that we have limited time to recover. World is moving fast, and if we do not act fast, nothing will happen to other countries – only we will be left on the platform, and train would have gone.
