The Prime Minister went onto note that nothing else matters if they can work together in these few months. Speaking about forming a government, he said:
All the concessions that are to be given, will be given and all of this will be concluded by April 23. This is a rehearsal of how we are going to work together after a parliamentary election is held. I want to turn the entire parliament into a government.”
Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake added that he is able to remind the former president, that all the clean projects will go ahead. He also said since more than 80 percent of those projects were corrupt, they have put a stop to the era where the taxpayers money went into other people’s pockets.

Speaking on the Executive Presidency the minister noted:
”We went before the people and said that all of the destructive powers vested in the position of Executive President, will be removed. We said before the people, that a government led by a Prime Minister accountable to parliament, will be established.”
