Special Announcement Issued by the Leader of the United National Front Ranil Wickremesinghe
The majority of the people of this country have approved the continuance of good governance and consensual politics endorsed by the people through the silent revolution of 8th of January.
I offer my grateful thanks to all parties and individuals who worked untiringly during the election period to ensure victory for the people. We have been able to create a peaceful atmosphere needed for a free and fair election.
There should not be a division amongst people as winners and losers. We should get together as the sons and daughters of our motherland to the task of building a new political culture in this country. We have to unitedly work towards lifting the nation to a new height by facing challenges of the new era.
I invite all of you to join hands with us to face the challenges of our Mission.
Let us together build a civilized society, build a consensual government and create a new country with equal opportunities for everybody.
