Emergency meeting between President & allied party leaders

A discussion is to be held between the leaders of government allied parties and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the Temple Trees today (28).

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa is also scheduled to attend this discussion which will commence at 5.30pm.

Today's discussion will take up the matter of the Yugadanavi power plant and the present political situation.

Although the affiliated parties had earlier requested the President for a discussion on the 40% share transfer of the Yugadanavi power plant to a US company, the President had asked them to discuss the matter with the PM and Finance minister to resolve the matter.

Meanwhile, the constituent party leaders have already announced that they will convene a "people's assembly" against the controversial Yugadanavi pact.
