Samagi Jana Balawegaya Colombo District Parliamentarian Patali Champika Ranawaka says he will function as an independent MP in Parliament from today (8).
Speaking in Parliament today, MP Ranawaka said he has informed the SJB in writing about his intentions a few days ago.
He clarified that there was no truth in reports that he had decided to leave the party to take up a ministerial post, adding that he will not accept any ministerial portfolios in the current government.
MP Ranawaka also added that he believes that an all-party interim government should be formed to guide the country forward.
