(Lanka-e-News - 14.Feb.2018, 10.00AM) Following the attempts made by the United National Front (UNF) to form a separate government under Ranil Wickremesinghe as prime minister (P.M.) at the same time as president Sirisena was trying to change the P.M. , the president had to abandon that effort.
Accordingly , the cabinet of the consensual government is to continue with its activities hereafter as before , and a cabinet sub committee with the participation of both sides is to be appointed while Ranil Wickremesinghe is to continue as P.M. This decision was taken today ( 13 th night).
This decision was arrived at when the UNF and the UPFA cabinet members met tonight under the chairmanship of the president. Prior to this meeting , the group of UNF ministers and MPs had discussions chaired by the P.M. at Temple Trees . The cabinet meeting was held subsequently. The main topic of discussion was , whether UNF and SLFP groups shall together form the local councils when appointments are being made. It was decided that they should be together when the local councils are being appointed in which case they can defeat the Flower Bud with about 190 seats, and form the councils.
This factual report was published by Lanka e news first , but the presidential media division for inexplicable reasons rejected it via its communique. Owing to that the president had to face a lot of criticisms.
At the discussions the vicious, venomous and villainous campaign the Sirasa media is conducting since this morning to send out the P.M. when the two main leaders of the country are discussing the issues in the best interests of the country, too was brought into focus.
The discussion continued until 13 th midnight .
