SJB National list MP Harin Fernando yesterday said he will inform the nation about a major political decision he is to make in Parliament soon.
“I will not reveal what I am going to do now but will make a special statement in Parliament soon and will implement my decision on behalf of former MP Ranjan Ramanayake,” he told Daily Mirror
Speculation is rife that he will resign from his seat as a national list MP and allow Mr. Ramanayake to come in to fill the vacancy. When asked about this Mr. Fernando said he will not reveal anything till he makes the special statement in Parliament.
Earlier at a public gathering, MP Fernando referred to a challenge posted by an SLPP Matara District MP to reign from Parliament and allow Mr. Ramanayake to come in. “A Government MP from Matara District posted a challenge and I will make a political decision on behalf of Mr. Ramanayake in May,” he said.
