COLOMBO (News 1st); Parliamentarian Jayantha Samaraweera said that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa had positively responded to the proposals put forward for the creation of a All-Party Government which will be named as the “National Consensus Government”.

He said as per the proposal the leaders of the political parties that agree to form the “National Consensus Government” would establish a National Council, and National Council would name the Prime Minister and the Cabinet of Ministers of the “National Consensus Government”.

He made these comments following a meeting between the President and the leaders of political parties that decided to remain independent from the government.

“The National Council would decide on the number of ministers required to build back the nation and public trust, and the National Council would also decide on the secretaries that will be appointed,” he told reporters.
