Country is in disarray following rift between President and PM: Pavithra Wanniarachchi charges

Pavithra Wanniarachchi

Ratnapura District Parliamentarian Pavithra Wanniarachchi has charged that the whole country is in a disarray consequent to the rift between President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

She was addressing a news briefing at the SLPP office. Addressing the media further, Pavithra said:

“ There is a confrontation between the President and the Prime Minister on every issues and this has affected the economy and the security of the island nation. The latest example is the contradictory views expressed by the two leaders on the implementation of the death penalty. The President says the death penalty should be implemented, but the UNP says otherwise. In fact, the UNP says the death penalty should be abolished and removed from the law books. The government always fought over one issue or another.

This does not help people in any way. During the term of our government, the President used to take decisions and refer them to Parliament. There was a proper mechanism. Therefore, it was easier to develop the country and uplift the peoples' livelihood.

Our party’s opinion is that Gotabaya Rajapaksa should be the presidential candidate. However, the conflict over presidential candidacy in the UNP is much more severe. The UNPers air mixed opinions over different candidates."
