Harin Fernando has indicated he will join the new Government


Opposition MP Harin Fernando has indicated he will join the new Government accepting ministerial portfolios.

Speaking during TV show, MP Fernando said that he believes that Samagi Jana Balawegaya should accept portfolios in the new Government led by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

He said that he will wait for one more day until his party takes a decision on that matter.

“Sajith Premadasa is the future leader of this country, there is no doubt about it, but I think now at this juncture we should support the new Government without thinking about politics.” Harin Fernando said.

“We will not have a country in another six months, I like if Sajith Premadasa and Anura Kumara Dissanayake join this new Government to help solve this crisis” he added.

“We have sent a letter to Prime Minister with seven points which includes demand for GotaGoHome process, once we get a positive reply we will take a decision, I am not alone on this” he added.

“I will not join the Government to get Gotabaya pass, he has failed, now we have to send this failed person out but that has to happen via the constitution”.

“Plan A is to get SJB to officially support, if that didn’t happen we have to go for Plan B”

MP Fernando also said that if he joins the new cabinet he will not accept any ministerial privileges.
