Leader of the National People’s Power Parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake says they firmly believed that the country’s issues can be resolved through an all-party government.
Speaking in Parliament today, MP Dissanayake said they held discussions with several parties in Parliament to come to a consensus to form an all-party government.
He said however, since major powers will be vested with the President, they did not want an Executive who will be part of a future power struggle.
MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake noted that they held several rounds of discussions to select an individual and then form a 10-member Cabinet.
The Parliamentarian said they wanted the new government to function for a specific time period to solve the issues of the country and then go for an election.
He said although several names were proposed for the post; they could not come to an agreement and failed to form an all-party government for a short period.
