W. D. J. Seneviratne, the Senior Vice Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party says that there several factors that need to be resolved in order to reach an agreement on establishing a National Government.
Issuing a communique on Wednesday, the United National Party said that an agreement has been reached to establish a National Government with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party subsequent to extensive and cordial discussions.
The United National Party says that it has had discussions with the Sri Lanka Freedom on establishing a National Government for a period of at least a minimum of two years, in line with the statements made during the presidential election and the general elections.
Chairman of the UNP, Malik Samarawickrema issuing a communique today, noted that priority was given on raising the nation and not on ministerial portfolios or benefits. When inquiries were made Malik Samarawickrema stated that the new cabinet of minister will be sworn in on September 2.
However, Senior Vice Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party W. D. J. Seneviratne says that discussions over the National Government are continuing.
The SLFP Senior Vice Chairman noted that there were several rounds of discussion and important decisions were reached however not all matters have been resolved because we have failed to be sworn in as a common Cabinet of Ministers but I believe that this situation will change in the coming days and we will be able to reach a final decision
W. D. J. Seneviratne added that there need to be amendments on the MoU signed with the UNP recently.
He also added that there are certain facts in the MoU that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party cannot agree on and discussion over the National Government are continuing so it is clear that the MoU is not complete and therefore we decided to form a new Committee and review the agreement reached by both parties.
