Ranil, Sajith and Karu’s secret meeting

A special discussion has been held yesterday between the UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe, Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa and Speaker Karu Jayasuriya yesterday (22).

Subsequent to the meeting, expressing his views Sajith Premadasa said that the meeting focussed mainly on the country’s situation and not regarding the presidential candidacy.

This meeting took place at the Speaker’s Official Residence in Kotte last morning.

The meeting lasted for around 2 hours and these comments were made by Minister Sajith Premadasa in response to media queries.

However, in a recent statement Speaker Karu Jayasuriya noted that he could consider the numerous requests made to him to contest the presidential election only based on the political forces committed to the abolishment of the Executive Presidency.
