President Maithripala Sirisena has assured Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to hold separate discussions with the Opposition Leader and the Leaders of the United National Front (UNF) tomorrow evening to arrive at an immediate solution to the political instability, the Media Unit of the Speaker said today.

In a statement issued over the brief meeting which was held between Speaker Jayasuriya and the President at the Presidential Secretariat this evening, the Media Unit said the Speaker has brought to the President's attention the current instability in the country.

"The Speaker told the President that all spheres of the country have become unstable today. He said the rapid depreciation of rupee and the collapsing of the investment sector and the tourism sector would be unbearable for the country. Therefore, the Speaker said that immediate solutions should be given to the instability to which the President responded positively. The President also commended the Speaker's contribution to find solutions," the statement said.

The Speaker met the President following many requests made by party leaders and other factions in Parliament today.

    Karu Thursday, 29 November 2018 06:54 PM

    Hope the President understands that subsidies are not allowed to prove the majority in the Parliament

    xxx Thursday, 29 November 2018 06:56 PM

    He is not interested in finding a solution, Now he has laid all his eggs on verdict on dissolution.

    Shan Thursday, 29 November 2018 06:57 PM

    Karu, your contribution to the Country at this juncture is commendable.

    Niyas Thursday, 29 November 2018 08:04 PM

    Mr President, final out come would be impeachment and you would lose your office. President PM both from UNF

    man Friday, 30 November 2018 08:39 AM

    Impeaching alone is not enough. He should be locked up for life for treason.

    Don Thursday, 29 November 2018 08:10 PM

    You had enough talks now. Accept the defeat and withdraw your illegal PM and the Illegal cabinet.

    Voter Thursday, 29 November 2018 08:25 PM

    And Step Down for the sake of the country

    Gamini Thursday, 29 November 2018 08:17 PM

    There are many Sinhala sayings to describe this. 1. Gale Reepu Balala, Kehel gahata anna kottoruwa, Koti walige allagattha wagei, Uda balala kela gahuwa, Ati kehel kaapu rilawa, Kithul ata kaapy uguduwa, kasaya beepu goluwa. These are only a few among many.

    You did not meet them to create the crisis, hence the crisis.

    MAD DOG Thursday, 29 November 2018 09:01 PM

    Dear President, your action has ruined our country. You seems to be arrogant and you want to achieve your own goal. For you the country becomes second. I do agree Ranil is not fit to be a PM. That doesn't mean MR is the alternative. MS you will not be in politics after January 2020. Your name is on the board as the most foolish President.

    SG Friday, 30 November 2018 08:07 AM

    Bravo Mad Dog! Could not have said it any better

    cheers Friday, 30 November 2018 08:06 AM

    President please do not give it to UNP or for TNA they have different motives and you will be held accountable by people and they destroyed your name in the last 3 years miserably

    Perumal Friday, 30 November 2018 08:12 AM

    Here is a Prez who is likely to end up his life in a gutter like Gaddafi of Libya

    Jude Friday, 30 November 2018 08:20 AM

    rai Friday, 30 November 2018 08:36 AM

    According to Mr.President, who is the opposition leader and who is the PM? People deserve to know who they are according to him.

    Premalal Friday, 30 November 2018 08:37 AM

    A clueless man made the president. What else can you expect other than chaos.

    Redflame Friday, 30 November 2018 08:53 AM

    Dont play double games be sincere to yourself. The damage done to countries economy and good governance is immense. Leader of a country should be more matured when taking decisions. The mess was created by your own assumptions and decisions and you need clean it for the survival and benefit of the country.

    Nihal Friday, 30 November 2018 08:57 AM

    MS YOU CREATED THIS UNCONSTITUTIONAL REBEL GROUP TO STAY ANOTHER TERM AS PRESIDENT AND VIOLATED PEOPLES CONSTITUTION

    DG Friday, 30 November 2018 09:14 AM

    President created this problem one month ago putting the country in difficulty. So he must solve it soon.

    Lanka Shantha Friday, 30 November 2018 09:20 AM

    QC Friday, 30 November 2018 09:34 AM

    MS is a liar. No one with brains should meet him until he rescinds his gazette of 26th October. He is solely responsible for ruining the country.

    TONY Friday, 30 November 2018 09:51 AM

    MR WAS PERFECTLY CORRECT WHEN HE SAID "AIYO SIRISENA"

    TONY Friday, 30 November 2018 10:01 AM
