A new political alliance led by Ranil - Digambaram Featured

A new political alliance led by prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will be formed to target the next presidential election, says minister Palani Digambaram.

The minister has made the comment to ‘Mawbima’ newspaper.

He also said a proposal to form a coalition government by former president Mahinda Rajapaksa would never realize.

The present government would continue until 2020, he said, challenging the joint opposition to topple it if possible.

Commenting on newspaper reports about talks between president Maithripala Sirisena and the JO, Digambaram said the president would not do so, since he was elected to power by the UNP-led minority parties.
