Prof. G.L Peiris says that certain groups are spreading false information about the restraining order issued by the Appeal Court. He said that certain people are spreading rumors there is no Prime Minister or Cabinet of Ministers in the country. He pointed out that there is no basis for such rumors. He said that the post of Prime Minister and the ministerial portfolios are remaining. He added that what has happened is the inability of implementing powers of those positions. He was speaking during a media briefing of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna today.
Parliamentarian Rohitha Abeygunawardena who took part in the media briefing said that Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna is prepared to go before the people for an election. The United National Party led by its leader is trying to hide from the people. Former President J.R Jayawardena is discredited with folding up the electoral map of the local political history. MP Rohitha Abeygunawardena said that Mr. Ranil Wickremasinghe is trying to overtake Mr. J.R Jayawardena. He questioned how can Mr. Wickremasinghe who cannot even ensure democracy in the party can do so in the country.
