JO stands for ‘Unitary State, Supremacy of our Parliament & Security of the State’ and JO opposes the hunt of Our Heroic Soldiers”
– Dinesh Gunawardena informs Jeffrey Feltman

Sri Lanka is a Sovereign & Independent state working along as a UN member, and we have had very good relations in many fields. It is our Parliament that drafted and promulgated the first republican constitution in 1972 and the second in 1978. As Sri Lanka is a sovereign country the Joint Opposition does not support or appreciate any foreign dictates or formulas in our constitution making.

JO stands for ‘Unitary State, Supremacy of our Parliament, & Security of the State’, and on this basis our positions have been made very clear at every meeting in relation to the constitution and we shall not deviate from these key positions.

Sri Lanka faced separatism and terrorism for over 30 years during UNP, PA & UPFA regimes. It was after UN resolution on 9/11 that we defeated terrorism at the high Sacrifice of Our Heroic Forces. Therefore, JO opposes the hunt of Our Heroic Soldiers. Even in western countries too their soldiers have been protected.

There is a sever drought in North & North-Central Provinces. Food shortages across the country. Natural disasters such as floods & landslide across the country. Effects of Climate Change should be of interest to the UN.

JO stands for a peaceful and fruitful development that will benefit Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim, and all communities & citizens in our country. And I represent the Joint Opposition with 52 MPs, the largest group of MPs in the opposition.”

– Leader of the Joint Opposition
