Holding Election or amending Constitution will not solve crisis – Ranil
Former Prime Minister and UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said that holding an election or amending the Constitution will not solve the current crisis in the country.
Speaking to the media, Wickremesinghe said the new Finance Minister is now in charge of visiting Washington to discuss the situation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
He said by mid-May, the Indian credit will be over and the country needs to find new avenues to raise necessary funds for essentials.
“Due to the lack of foreign exchange, it will not be possible to run even a private business by June. The Government should, at this juncture, involve all other political parties unconditionally,” he added. He said holding elections or amending the Constitution at present will not solve the country’s crisis. “A national policy is needed to resolve this crisis. We can overcome the crisis and strengthen our economy only if we work together and according to a plan. For that we must all unite,” Wickremesinghe said.

Ranil, you are still in the pockets of the Rajapaksas.
Still trying to save their skin as you did when you had the chance to put them away for good.
What have they got on you?
Certainly. I agree with Ranil on this rare occasion. It is working together keeping recriminations and poison to ourselves at least until we come out of this. Then, of course there should be one or more full investigations to question both the politicians and officials involved followed by due punishments. Also, the accusers need to either prove their accusations or should receive the punishment for baseless lies they spread. Massive amount of debt has been spent on many projects and the only way out is to use those highways, new city, airport etc. to earn returns. Tourism is re-starting in the world, but it will take months, if not more than a year and lots of persuasion to get tourists here. No more tourists are coming now thanks to the fuel shortage, power cuts as well as the mob activities. We should allow the people who have borrowed, have the plan and the vision – whatever it is – to continue until the end of their term, because, nobody else can do it any better or have come forward to take charge whatever their excuses. SL have no other chance. So we need to push on and come through the other end of the tunnel.
Aney Pissu Wikka,
Do you realise citizens of the Nation gave you 5 years to reform governance.
What did you do? Your fellows robbed the Central Bank and you spent many years protecting them and your pal, Mahemdram.
You thought 19A made you a virtual president. So you got into conflict with Pissu Sira, the mad-man President.
You promised great things (VW Factory) and never delivered any.
Sir, Pissu Wikka, you are a total political misfit. Please, please, go away with your bosom pals, the Ruling Family.
