Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) categorically rejected the idea mooted by opposition leader Sajith Premadasa for him to tie up with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in forming a government subsequent to the upcoming parliamentary polls.

Addressing a recent press conference, SLPP Chairman Prof. G.L. Peiris said the country had a bitter experience of coalition governance during the last five years.

“People of the previous government pulled the administration in different directions. It was sheer agony on the part of the general public. Therefore, the formation of a government between President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa will be the option. It will be the only coalition of harmonious spirit. President Rajapaksa is planning to dissolve Parliament after March 1 thus enabling the Elections Commission (EC) to conduct polls by April end,” he said.

Commenting on the dastardly Easter Sunday attacks, he said the truth was yet to be ascertained. It would come out through investigations launched by the presidential commission, he said. (Kelum Bandara)

    We have seen conflicts between president and PM when they not like- minded. By the way is SP ok with Gota's dual citizenship now?

    The very idea shows how foolish Sajith is and why he shouldn't be the leader of the opposition or a national party.

    We oppose self serving people like you and having appointed GR as president we now want the second best to be the premier and that's Sajith. Think of country before self, party, race , religion

    What if it happens. Are you going to stop it or prevent it. Why so much fear in your band wagon. The president thinks of the country first by deeds and not by words. Therefore the people will support him for any right decisions that he takes.

    Sajith will never want to tie up with corrupt bunch of idiots

    TONY Tuesday, 04 February 2020 08:43 AM

    WHAT SAJITH SAID WAS THAT HE WAS WILLING TO COOPERATE WITH GOTA. NOT AN COALITION. PROF DO NOT GET YOUR WIRES CROSSED

    cheers Tuesday, 04 February 2020 10:24 AM

    We need Gota - Mahinda and does not need a idiot like Sajith who was in UNP and Yahapalanaya and people rejected Sajith and minority parties
