President Maithripala Sirisena says the new Audit Bill will be tabled in parliament soon.

He said he regrets the delay of this Bill.

President Maithripala Sirisena also assured that this government will go on until 2020.

He said, "Anyone can come in and anyone can leave" and added that the crossovers will not deter the government’s tenure.

The President expressed these views during an interaction with Heads of local media institutions in the President's House this morning (30).

He further said that stern legal action will be taken against anybody found guilty of corruption. President Sirisena said he does not care whether such wrongdoers belong to the SLFP or UNP.

Expressing his views about next Sunday’s, 66th SLFP anniversary to held at Campbell Park in Borella, he mentioned that this year’s theme will be “Creating unity for a clean political movement”.

President Sirisena also pointed out that politicians should behave properly and set an example to the society, as the educated younger generation is disappointed with the current political trends.

Later, in response to questions by the Heads of Media Institutions, the President said former minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe was removed in accordance with a decision taken by the UNP.

President Sirisena further said that he never forcibly took over the party’s chairmanship. He said party members had appointed him as the party chairman in compliance with the SLFP constitution.
