Former President Maithripala Sirisena said that the only remedy for this political and economic crisis is to form a consensus government with the support of all parties.
He was speaking to the media yesterday at the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) headquarters in Colombo along with several other key members of the party.
He added that country is passing a difficult period and therefore every party is duty bound to come to a common platform to form a consensus government which can resolve the burning issues of the people.
“But several parties are not willing to come to a common stance as these parties want a general election,” he said.
He urged all parties to support the process of creating a consensus government for a short period until the country reaches a stable situation, without wasting any more time.
