President to support political solution decided by Parliament

I will support a political solution decided by the Parliament, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said a short while ago while addressing Media heads at Temple Trees.

The President said this when questioned on why a political solution for the minorities had been delayed.

He also stated that it was the responsible of the Parliament to come up with a durable political solution.

Discussing the University teacher salaries the President said that he cannot grant a Rs.200,000 salary as it was not in the public service structure.

Northern Provincial Council elections will be held next year, the President further stated.
