COLOMBO (NewsRadio); Another 13 Members of Parliament are preparing to support President Ranil Wickremesinghe and the government.
NewsRadio has learnt that several MPs from the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna and the Samagi Jana Balawegaya are in talks with the United National Party.
Crossovers are expected on the 14th of November when President Ranil Wickremesinghe is scheduled to deliver the 2023 Budget in Parliament.
According to political sources, certain MPs are of the view that the President is gradually stabilizing the economy and therefore all Parliamentarians and political parties must support the programme of the Head of State.
Another set of MPs are unhappy with their respective leadership and seeking to start a fresh political journey.
Several rounds of discussions are expected to be held in the next few days regarding crossovers.
The President in his capacity as the Minister of Finance is scheduled to present the 2023 Budget at 1.30pm on the 14th of November.
