JVP says whoever appointed to Premiership is not my concern

British Asia News Network

Sri Lanka: JVP (The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna) Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said today that he isn’t concerned about who will be appointed to the premiership. He told parliament that the JVP did everything possible to defeat the political coup and said whoever becomes the Prime Minister was not relevant to them.

Mr. Dissanayake said they voted in favour of the No-Confidence motion brought against the then Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on April 4 against his actions as the Prime Minister for three years and added that the same criticism they made against him was still valid.

He went on to say even though the then government managed to secure its power in Parliament through numbers, it had lost confidence of the people and added that the government’s stability did not depend only on numbers.

“If a new government is appointed, a New Prime Minister should also be appointed. But it is not relevant to us,’ he said.
