COLOMBO (News 1st); Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa met with President Ranil Wickremesinghe for talks on Monday (22).
The Samagi Jana Balavegaya said the President and the Opposition Leader exchanges views on an All-Party Government.
The SJB said that the President had once again requested the Opposotion Leader to join with the Government with ministerial positions awarded to SJB MPs.
The Opposition Leader had turned down the offer, and stressed to the President that the SJB will NOT obtain ministerial positions, and will support an All-Party Government program.
The Opposition Leader had noted that rather than adding more burden to the public coffers by obtaining ministerial positions, the SJB will remain in opposition and support the positive steps taken by the government, and criticize the anti-people programs proposed by the government.
Had a forthright amicable discussion with Pres @RW_UNP on the challenges faced by the country.
Re-emphasized @sjbsrilanka's commitment to support all progressive initiatives via parliamentary committee system & stressed our grave reservations on the use of PTA as state policy.
