National Unity Govt to remain till 2020

Current understanding between the stakeholders of the National Unity Government will prevail until 2020, President Maithripala Sirisena said.

“This is a solid government and it will not change until 2020. After five years, the people of the country will be given another chance to choose their government,” the President said during a political talk show to mark the first year of his ‘defection’ from the Rajapaksa government to be the Common Candidate of the opposition. The discussion, hosted by political commentator Upul Shantha Sannasgala, was attended by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and several other key stakeholders of the national unity government.

“There is a misconception that nothing Is happening under the present government. It is created by our political opponents. On January 08, we embarked on a new journey and we have already introduced some of the much needed political reforms to the country,” the President added.

When asked whether Nishshanka Senadipathi, owner of Avant Garde private security firm, came to congratulate him on January 10, the Sirisena said he could not remember every one who came to wish him after the election.“If I can remember tens of thousands of people who came to wish me after the election, my brain should be preserved in a special museum,” he said.
