PM says he is willing to resign!
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has told the Party Leaders that he is willing to resign as Prime Minister and make way for an all-Party Government to take over.
He says he is taking this decision in view of the fact that island-wide fuel distribution is due to recommence this week, the World Food Program Director is due to visit the country this week and the Debt Sustainability report for the IMF is due to be finalised shortly.
So as to ensure safety of the citizens, he is agreeable to this recommendation by the Opposition Party Leaders.
However, earlier, Sri Lanka Muslim Congress leader - Rauff Hakeem has Tweeted, "Correction to my earlier tweet on consensus to ask PM and President to resign. No consensus as PM disagrees. Speaker however decided to write to President and PM to resign as per overwhelming request."
Meanwhile, Harsha de Silva has Tweeted the decisions taken at the Party Leaders' meeting today.
