Interim All Party Govt. only solution for resolving present crisis - Maithripala

An Interim All Party Government is the only solution for resolving the serious economic and other crisis facing the country today, former President, Sri Lanka Freedom Party Chairman and MP Maithripala Sirisena stated yesterday.

He further said that an Interim All Party Government should be formed to seek international assistance at this juncture as it is difficult to find quick solutions to the current crisis.

He was addressing the media conference held at the SLFP Headquarters yesterday.

He said that many countries including Japan and the United States would be willing to support Sri Lanka, if an All-Party Government is formed in the country.

At present, the people of the country are suffering due to the shortage of food, fuel, gas, medicine and other basic requirements. The farming community is deprived by the shortage of fertilizers. No single Government can solve these problems at present. My personal view is solutions can be found for these problems only through an interim all party government. An Interim All Party Government should be formed with only 15 Ministerial posts representing all political parties.

The time period for existing of the all party Government should be decided firstly and also the time frame for holding an election should be decided. We are confident that if an All-Party Government is formed, international assistance will be provided to resolve the problems in our country. Especially countries including Japan and the United States will support this move,” he added.
