More truth will be revealed in the coming days- Sajith


Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa says his party does not want to form an Interim Government with “those that want it only so they can dig themselves out of their holes, secure positions and tide out the bad times.”

Taking to Twitter, he expressed his displeasure over MP Ranjith Siyambalapitiya’s recent re-election as the Deputy Speaker of Parliament.

Siyambalapitiya garnered 148 votes, including those of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), while Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) nominee MP Imthiaz Bakeer Markar had a total of 65 votes.

He said the opposition is against a media that is owned, politicians that are owned, and “independents who were bought long ago,” adding that there is no “political strategy” that will fix that.

“There is only truth to expose. SJB will stick to its course. Which means more truth will come spilling out in the coming days. NCM is about holding this regime accountable, it is not about dictating conditions to SJB,” he said.

He questioned why the entire country and its people have to make the ultimate sacrifice only to support a corrupt and inefficient Government.

“Why should we do anything to keep the Rajapaksa’s going? Why should SJB just go along with the “deals”?”

He added that for the country to progress forward, the incumbent government must resign.
