ACMC will back Ranil on Dec. 12 - Rishad

MPs of the ACMC will back Ranil Wickremesinghe, during a motion to establish is majority backing will be taken up on Dec. 12, party leader - MP Rishad Bathiudeen says.

"As a party, the ACMC has five MP seats in parliament. We would be extending their unconditional support to Mr. Wickremesinghe on Dec. 12," he said.

The MP added his party pledged their support to re-establish the cabinet of ministers led by Mr. Wickremesinghe as PM.

The expulsion of Mr. Wickremesinghe was a blatant violation of the constitution, he further said.

Noting that this undemocratic act should be rectified, he added that the democratic rule which existed before Oct. 26, should be re-established.
