Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella says the Samagi Jana Balawegaya did not engage in any form of discussion pertaining to appointing former Speaker of House Karu Jayasuriya to the post of Prime Minister.
Speaking during a media briefing today, MP Kiriella said the SJB Parliamentary Group nor the Working Committee discussed such a matter.
He added they will not bring in an outsider to the post of Prime Minister claiming that the SJB worked towards forming a government.
Kiriella also stated that the former good governance government handed over an economically sound government to the currently administration.
MP Kiriella also stated that the notion that all 225 Members of Parliament should resign, is being shared by supporters of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, adding that the SJB has no such opposition.
He challenged such groups to hold an election in order to witness the people’s mandate.
