The time has come to decide whether the Rajapaksa regime or country is more important insisted the main Opposition Leader yesterday, calling for the Government to implement key accountability processes including holding elections in the north before the island is labelled as a “pariah State” by the international community.
Taking an impassioned stance, United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe requested the Government to hold a meeting with Opposition parties before the second US-backed resolution on Sri Lanka is passed at the ongoing United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) insisting that “it is still not too late”.
“We can meet in April and put together a plan on key issues such as the implementation of the LLRC report. Even if the resolution is passed, action will not be taken immediately so we can come to an accord in April.
We’ll even come to Mattala, we might not come by plane but we’ll come by car,” Wickremesinghe told media.
