Secretary-General of the Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) MP Douglas Devananda congratulated Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s appointment and wished him well in taking the necessary steps to help lift Sri Lanka out of its economic crisis.
Devananda also said that he is ready to extend full cooperation to the Prime Minister’s policies that could benefit the country and the Tamil people. He also expressed hope that the expertise of Wickremesinghe, the Prime Minister of the country for the sixth time, and his international relations would facilitate President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa’s efforts to recover from the economic crisis.
The EPDP also called on Tamil parties to co-operate with the new government to be formed under President Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Wickremesinghe rather than talk about impracticalities for narrow political purposes.
