Will talk to UNP only if the job is done properly – President

President Maithripala Sirisena had set out conditions that in future he will discuss matters with the UNF leaders only if parliamentary affairs are done properly, said MP – S.B. Dissanayake.

A group of UNF members had met the President last afternoon and asked him for an appointment to discuss the affidavits of the 113 MPs who had expressed their support to Ranil Wickremesinghe and the future course of action.

However, the President had stated that even if Ranil Wickremesinghe has a majority of over 113 in parliament, he would not allow Ranil Wickremesinghe to be reappointed as the Prime Minister as long as he sits in the Presidential post.
