'NCM, a move to remove Ranil from 2020 Prez polls'

Speaking in parliament today (04), minister Rauff Hakeem noted that the no confidence motion (NCM) strengthens the present government. Hakeem said that this NCM had lost its momentum right from the beginning.

Minister Hakeem while stating that there are issues that need to be resolved, urged the government to establish the rule of law without protecting culprits.

Hakeem also noted that the NCM against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is an attempt to remove him from the 2020 Presidential Election race. “The SLMC stands with the Prime Minister against the motion and it considers the motion to be an attack on the government. The Prime Minister is only a symbol. They just want to damage the government,” he added.
