Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa says the decision on supporting the establishment of an all-party government will be based on the response of the President after his audience with the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL).

He made these remarks following a meeting with the BASL members this morning (April 08).

Speaking further, Premadasa stressed that executive presidency and the 21st constitutional amendment must be revoked in order for the country to move forward. The main reason for the ongoing crisis is the dictatorial executive presidency,” he added.

He also noted that the proposals presented by the BASL with regard to forming an interim government and the constitutional amendments proposed by the Opposition contain many similarities.

The BASL recently proposed the establishment of an interim government of national unity consisting of 15 Cabinet Ministers.

The association also suggested that the Prime Minister should be a Member of Parliament who is able to establish a consensus among all political parties recognized by the Speaker in Parliament on the national economy and to enact necessary reforms.
