No political change today: half the MPs overseas! Featured

The UNP said that there is no truth to claims of a political shift prior to the presidential elections.

Expressing his views to ‘Neth News’ UNP-MP Ajith P. Perera said that it is unlikely that the President would seek such a change and create political unrest in the country once more. 

When the question regarding a political change was posed to SLFP-MP Kumara Welgama, he said no matter what stance is taken regarding a political change, without the 113 majority none of these measures would be fruitful. 

Several media reports indicated that there could be a political shift after the New Year and it would most likely be today, April 15th.

These reports indicated that another prominent UNP leader would be appointed to the post of Prime Minister replacing Ranil Wickremesinghe.

However, according to political sources, the majority of MP are currently overseas on holiday.
