PM to be asked to raise matter with president Featured

UNP ministers and MPs are to request prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe this week to raise with president Maithripala Sirisena the criticism by SLFP ministers at election platforms of the collective decisions taken in the cabinet, a senior UNP member said on condition of anonymity.

The SLFP ministers’ action is a blow to the cabinet’s collective responsibility and a demeaning of the government policies before the public, they will say.

Also the SLFP ministers are describing certain proposals as ones detrimental to the country and submitted by the UNP, the party will point out to the PM.

They want the PM to reconsider working with the SLFP in the cabinet.
