It is most likely that by tomorrow a new government with a new Cabinet would be established, a senior minister in the government had told the Leader web site.
It also states that the President and the Prime Minister have agreed to a proposal submitted by Wimal Weerawansa and other government partners.
It is reported that the representatives of the government allies have met with the President and the Prime Minister and proposed to establish an interim government with the participation of the parties represented in the parliament and to call a general election shortly afterwards to resolve the current crisis.
Former Minister Wimal Weerawansa, former Minister Udaya Gammanpila, Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara and Parliamentarian Tiran Alles have made the same request to the President yesterday and it is said that they have met the Prime Minister today and submitted the same proposal.
What is the point of a government alliance?
In an inquiry made by Sri Lanka Mirror, Member of Parliament SM Marikkar said that the SJB would not join in any interim government.
He also said that if a new interim government is formed without those with allegations of corruption in the current government, he would support such a program to rebuild the country.
New Prime Minister!
However, when contacted by Sri Lanka Mirror, the main opposition, the Samagi Janabalawegaya Spokesperson, said that his party had not been notified of the formation of any national government.
He also said that in his view the President needs to resign and questioned the usefulness of another government with the President and Prime Minister at the helm.
He alleged that this is a ploy to overcome the anti-Rajapaksa campaign.
