Political parties must support President – Abeywardena


UNP Chairman, MP Wajira Abeywardena yesterday (14) said the leaders of every political party in Parliament must extend their unconditional support to President Ranil Wickremesinghe to rebuild the collapsed economy.

Abeywardena was speaking to the media in Galle in connection with the prevailing economic crisis and the action taken by the President to resolve it.

“Citizens need to be aware of past events. Next year, we will celebrate 75 years of independence. The UNP has completed 76 years. When looking back at the last 74 years, it is clear that the country cannot be built by pointing fingers at each other,” Abeywardena said.

“First, we need to identify measures to win the global economy. Sri Lanka is in a precarious position due to disputes between political parties,” he added. 

“We must stand united to defeat foreign elements. Citizens must urge political parties to think about the future of the country. People shouldn’t be allowed to do as they please. Political leaders must rally under one flag to achieve Sustainable Development Goals,” MP Abeywardena further said.
