UNP to discuss natl. govt. with president Featured

The UNP says it will explain the proposal for a national government to president Maithripala Sirisena, who said just yesterday (04) that he opposed the idea.

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella has told Neth News it was his responsibility to obtain parliamentary approval for the proposal that was decided by the prime minister.

He said the dispute could be settled by discussing it with the president.

There is no big opposition from the UNP backbenchers either, he said.
