General Secretary of the UNP, Akilaviraj Kariyawasagam has said that the support ofa JVP is needed to making Ranil the Prime Minister, as we have majority to do so with TNA supporting us.
Elaborating further he had said that 113 votes are enough to prove the majority of Ranil. JVP’s are not needed for majority. It is a decision of their party. Mahindha faction had gone into wrong calculations, that, if JVP is not supporting us, our majority will be less than the opposition.
TNA is continuing to raise their voice to safe guard democracy. They will never take political decisions centering on current matters. They will pursue political decisions with far fetching visions. We are confident that the TNA will not undertake anti-democratic actions, he said.
