Colombo (News 1st) – A group of MPs representing the United National Party called on Archbishop of Colombo His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith in Colombo today (November 03).

The group of MPs spoke to His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith about the current political situation. Media Spokesperson of the Tamil National Alliance M. A. Sumanthiran was also present.

Sumanthiran stated that people voted for Sarath Fonseka who was an army commander with the intention of removing Rajapaksa and now to have Rajapaksa ruling again is a terrifying thought. He states that they aren’t supporting Ranil Wickramasinghe but that this move made was unconstitutional and illegal. He goes on to note that if a country appoints a new Prime Minister the first thing that must be done is to convene the Parliament to show the majority of the house.

Sumanthiran then notes that even if a court case is filed regarding this situation the government will only do something to delay the procedure.

Ravi Karunanayake states that even if UNP has ill-treated the MP’s in the past the people have placed their faith in them to safeguard the democracy in the country. Ravi Karunanayake states that due to the situation in the country the IMF refuses to deal with Sri Lanka for financial transactions.
