Former Media Minister Dullas Alahapperuma yesterday called for the resignation of the Cabinet led by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The former Media Minister in a letter to the President said that Parliament should be given an opportunity to overcome the challenges ahead of the country collectively by forming an All Party Government.
The former Minister viewed that the delay in taking this important decision will have a negative impact on the country’s future and its stability. “It is my view that the majority of Legislators don’t want to members of a Government or an Opposition who are working irresponsibly,” the former Minister added Alahapperuma commended the President’s decision to appoint a set of Cabinet with the highest number of youth representation.
“Though this decision is commendable, it has become one of the few decisions which have not been taken at right time,” he said
He said that the Executive Presidency, Cabinet of Ministers and the majority in Parliament should be secured at a crucial junction such as this by adhering to democratic norms and practices.
