Ranil gets Pohottuwa support

SLPP General Secretary Sagara Kariyawasam confirmed to News 1st that the SLPP party would support the Wickremesinghe-led Government.

He added that the SLPP parliamentary group would meet The President tomorrow, at 10:00 AM.

The SLPP announcement comes in the wake of all main opposition parties announcing their decision to stay away from joining a government under Ranil Wickremesinghe’s Premiership.

This would effectively mean that Prime Minister Wickremesinghe could end up as the head of a Government solely with Pohottuwa MP’s.
