SLFP prepared to support Sajith


Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekara says if Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa is willing to accept the Premiership, his party is prepared to support him.

Speaking to media today (11), he said the country will head towards anarchy if the President steps down in the absence of a Prime Minister.

MP Jayasekara said the SLFP hopes to discuss the matter with the 11 leaders whose parties became independent in the Parliament.

He urged the Opposition Leader to accept the Premiership without holding on to the opinion that a new Prime Minister should not be appointed until the President steps down.
