Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday that dissolution of Parliament was the option in the event of a no-confidence motion being mooted against him.

The Prime Minister made these remarks in response to the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MPs, who pressed for the debate on the no-confidence motion.

He said there were two options- to take up the motion or to dissolve Parliament. However, Mr. Wickremesinghe asked for the dissolution of Parliament immediately.

He said the UPFA MPs, agitating for the debate on the no-confidence motion, were afraid of an election in the aftermath of dissolution of Parliament.
The Prime Minister said though the government did not intended to stay any longer after the conclusion of the 100-day programme period, further time had been given for it at the request of the UPFA only.

"UPFA sought further time to enact the 20th Amendment. That is the reason for the government to stay in power further after the 100-day programme period. We did not seek ask for more time. We want to seek a fresh mandate. But, the UPFA wanted it," he said.

Mahajana Eksath Peramuna (MEP) Leader Dinesh Gunawardane said nobody in Parliament was opposed to the dissolution of Parliament.

He said the rupee value was getting depreciated against the US dollar on a daily basis causing huge economic impacts under the present government.
"We cannot allow this government to run further," he said.
