The government can no longer go about withdrawing clauses of legislation just to get them passed as it did with the 19th Amendment in the recent past, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.


He would not leave room for the establishment of a UPFA government . He said the 100 Day Period mandated by people had ended at the moment


Addressing a get-together of the United National Party (UNP) at Temple Trees, the Prime Minister said a new stable Parliament was needed to get people-friendly legislation passed smoothly without any hiccups.rani2

He also said Sri Lanka should show the world a stable legislature in order to attract foreign investors.
He stressed the need for creating a bright future for the youth and thereby create new avenues for employment.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said he would not leave room for the establishment of a UPFA government . He said the 100 Day Period mandated by people had ended at the moment. UNP General Secretary Kabir Hashim said the present regime was an interim one which was elected for only one hundred days and it was essential to elect a new stable government.

Making a presentation, Mr. Hashim said UNP would be able to get more than 119 seats at the general elections. He recalled that 6.2 million votes which were obtained by President Maithripala Sirisena at the last presidential election would have given an opposition alliance 119 seats at a general election. He claimed that UNP could get this number of seats at the next general elections.

Deputy Minister of policy planning Dr. Harsha de Silva said people would be able to see clearly that the economy handed over by the previous regime manipulated a bankrupt one.

Uva province Chief Minister Harin Fernando said the only promise which this government failed to keep was to dissolve Parliament on April 23. He said he was willing to dedicate himself for the party as he did in the Uva Provincial Council elections in the recent past.
