UNP Parliamentary Group had decided to meet Speaker Karu Jayasuriya today to inform him that they had the majority in Parliament and to accept its Leader as the Prime Minister, a senior MP who did not wish to be named told the Daily Mirror yesterday.

“We will inform Speaker that we have the majority and will tell him that arrangements should be made to recognise Mr Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister,” he said.

Also, he said there were several SLFP MPs who were willing to support Mr Wickremesinghe while remaining as a separate group in Parliament.

The MP said party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had told the group that he had managed to secure the majority and not to have any doubts about it. (Yohan Perera)

    Good if the UNP can show a majority in Parliament, butthe supporters don't want RANIL to remain as it'sLEADER.

    Speaker Karu has nothing to do with the people's wish, he should not be stood one sided but remain neutral personality to respect the POST he holds. If Ranil has any considerable majority-support then why should he forcibly stay in the Temple Trees.
