The Joint Opposition says that more than 40 parliamentarians have signed the 'No-confidence Motion' which is to be brought against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

The 'No-confidence Motion' includes 14 charges out of which, 12 are related to the Central Bank bond scam.

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that all leaders of the Joint Opposition including himself decided to sign the 'No-confidence Motion' before it is moved.

The Former President made this statement while speaking to media subsequent to a ceremony held yesterday (Mar. 16) to award a doctorate to MP Bandula Gunawardena from a foreign educational institute in Beijing, China.

Meanwhile, State Minister T.B. Ekanayake who said yesterday that he had signed the 'No-confidence Motion' against PM, made a different statement today.

The State Minister who confirmed three times that he signed the 'No-confidence Motion', today told our news team that he, in fact, did not sign the motion.

However, he said that the SLFP Minister will handover a different motion against the PM to the Speaker.

Meanwhile, the Treasurer of the SLFP, Minister S. B. Dissanayake while making a hint on the decision of the SLFP, rejected the statement made by State Minister Ekanayake that a document from the SLFP against the Prime Minister will be produced to the Speaker.

However, political sources report that the SLFP is to produce a document to the speaker in future that the party has no faith in the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the National Organization to Safeguard the UNP stated that the current leadership of the party should be changed.

Convening a press briefing in Dambulla, its General Secretary, former councillor of Hingurakgoda Pradeshiya Sabha, S. R. M. Wickramasinghe said that the leadership of the party should be handed over to the youth.

Former Pradeshiya Sabha representatives of the UNP along with activists of the UNP Communication Task Force have initiated the National Organization to Safeguard the UNP.

It’s a specialty that a UNP representative from all 25 districts each took part in the press briefing.
