NCM against PM : UNP confident of defeating motion

UNP sources yesterday confirmed that they would definitely get 131 votes against the Joint Opposition’s (JO) No Confidence Motion (NCM) against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to be moved in Parliament on April 4 and defeat it by a comfortable majority.

“We would easily get 102 signatures in support of our motion. Even some of the constituent Party Leaders of the National Unity Government have also signed the Confidence Motion. A unanimous decision has been taken within the party to defeat the NCM against the Prime Minister. In addition, during a recent meeting with the Premier, all UNP members expressed their confidence in him,” he said.

He said 12 SLFP Ministers in the Government have also pledged their support to the Prime Minister.
