DNF: ‘No auspicious days in August to announce coalition’

Minister Gamini Jayawickrema Perera said that since there were no auspicious days in the month of August, he had proposed that the establishment of the Democratic National Front should be postponed for September this year.

Answering questions posed by the media after attending the Cabinet meeting yesterday, Minister Jayawickrema Perera said there was complete bonhomie between the President and members of his party at yesterday’s Cabinet meeting, adding that there is no crisis at all within the UNP.

Although the media was trying to portray a non-existent crisis within the UNP, all problems will be resolved and the UNP will announce its Presidential Candidate the moment the Opposition announces the name of their candidate.

Minister Sajith Premadasa too spoke to the media after the Cabinet meeting. He said there was no need for anyone else to teach him his duties and responsibilities, adding that he was conscious of his duties and responsibilities at all times.

He said the whole country was looking to him regarding the Presidential Candidacy and added that everyone should wait with patience without getting agitated.
