The Patriotic National Movement states that the SLFP cannot enter an agreement on a national government without the UPFA’s endorsement.

Addressing a media conference held in Colombo today, President of the movement Dr. Gunadasa Amarasekera said, although people voted for two main fronts but only two political parties have agreed to form a national government.

A national government is defined under the 19th constitutional amendment.

Accordingly, a national government is a government formed by a recognized political party which secures the highest number of MP seats in parliament along with another recognized political party or independent group in parliament.

Ceylon Workers Congress and the EPDP organization have reached a final decision to support the national government.

These parties contested the General Election supporting the UPFA and the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

EPDP Leader and Former Minister Douglas Devananda told our news team that he decided to support the national government with the aim of resolving the issues of the Tamil people.

Meanwhile, former Minister Arumugam Thondaman’s Ceylon Workers Congress has also decided to support the national government.
