Ranil ready to show majority!

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is making arrangements to show that he has the majority in parliament, a PM’s office spokesman said.

He is expected to take the relevant measures pertaining to this move today.

Accordingly, the UNP is making plans to establish a single party parliament limiting it to 30.

Sources at the PM’s office said 30 of the most efficient members of the party would be given ministerial posts.

Currently the UNP has 106 seats and the TNA has also agreed to support the UNP, but have refused to join a UNP government.

The Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera is also among the UNP ministerial seats.
