A majority of 118 members of Parliament still oppose the appointment of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the new Prime Minister despite the crossing over of UNP MP Asoka Priyantha, UNP Spokesman Harin Fernando said yesterday.

Mr. Fernando told Daily Mirror that crossing over of Asoka Priyantha was not significant as 118 MPs still oppose the appointment of Mr. Rajapaksa as the PM.

“A majority of MPs may not support UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe but they oppose the appointment of Mr. Rajapaksa,” he said.

He said they are confident of getting the support of the SLMC led by MP Rauff Hakeem and the ACMC led by MP Rishad Bathiudeen as well.(Yohan Perera)

    I am scared if the price per head goes up from the present 50 million to a 100 million there could be more crossovers.

    Empty fussing results no value, await the day of parliamentary convention as announced by the President My3.

    johan Monday, 05 November 2018 10:50 AM

    My3 has strong mind but he does not have policies and does not have long term vision.He can do anything temporarily using his power

    Do not have over confidance. The majority has no ethics and values. The frogs keep jumping for any perks they may get.
