Speaking to media in Colombo, the MP said he will openly support government policies that will have a positive effect on the economy.
He said the SJB will also support positive political reformations brought up in Parliament. However, the MP said the country requires political stability at present.
Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera has expressed willingness to support Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Patali Champika Ranawaka if he is ready to accept the post of Minister of Power.
Speaking to media in Colombo, Minister Wijesekera said MP Ranawaka is the most suitable person to serve in the portfolio.
Minister Wijesekera said he is ready to give up his post at the Minister of Energy to a suitable individual, adding that he was ready to assist in making plans become a reality.
He added Ministers Manusha Nanayakkara and Harin Fernando took the risk of destroying their political careers and accepted Ministerial portfolios to serve the country.

Therefore, he called on MP Patali Champika Ranawaka to accept a post as the Minister of Power.
