Although the SLFP’s parliamentary group has unanimously decided to support the no confidence motion brought by the Joint Opposition against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, the blessings of the party leader, President Maithripala Sirisena, is yet to be obtained according to SLFP sources.
Subsequently at today’s Cabinet meeting Nimal Siripala Silva had conveyed the position of the SLFP parliamentary group to Wickremesinghe, urging him to resign before the no-confidence motion is taken up for debate tomorrow (4th).
Since Wickremesinghe has not agreed, the group had decided to meet President Sirisena again to finalize the course of action the party would take on the matter.
