The 10 political parties that quit the previous government and became independent have decided to remain in the opposition and function as an independent group, says MP Wimal Weerawansa.
Speaking during a press briefing today (13), the former minister however stated that they have no intention of sabotaging any administration that is established under the new prime minister.
“We do not intend to sabotage the administration that will be established, or refrain from supporting any good this it does, or to engage in hate politics,” the leader of the National Freedom Front (NFF) said.
“Therefore, all the members belonging to the 10-party alliance will remain in the opposition as an independent group and support the good steps of the government. But we will not allow the country to become anarchic,” he added.
Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) leader MP Udaya Gammanpila stated that as long as PM Ranil Wickremesinghe works to “rescue the country from the abyss” they would extend their support while remaining in the opposition.
“This country needs a government. We will not make any attempt to topple the government,” the former minister said.
