SLFP says will back Sajith | Breaking News

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party said if Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa will take over the government, the SLFP is ready to extend support.

MP Dayasiri Jayasekera said the SLFP said it would not allow the country to fall into a state of anarchy, and the matter of supporting Premadasa’s government would be discussed with the leaders of the Group of 11 political parties.

However, he said rather than waiting for the President to step down to become the Prime Minister, it is wise to become the Prime Minister now and lead.

Earlier, SJB MP Lakshman Kiriella has said that leader of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Sajith Premadasa is willing to take over as Prime Minister of a new government if President Gotabaya Rajapaksa steps down.
