UNP MP Wajira Abeywardena said that other countries were afraid of Ranil due to his strong economic vision.
The parliamentarian said that people should now demand political party leaders to get together and form a national government.
Power struggles among party leaders have dragged the country towards a precipice. We now have the leadership to spearhead a national government. Other countries are afraid of Ranil Wickremesinghe because they fear that he would revive the country to greater heights, he said.
Therefore a leader who can fight with the rest of the world is now being elected as our president, he added.
