Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, in his capacity as the leader of the UNP, while noting that any decision regarding a No-Confidence motion must be taken at a UNP parliamentary group meeting, has instructed the UNP backbencher parliamentarians to withdraw the No-Confidence motions. Therefore these MPs will withdraw the no confidence motions filed.
Further decisions on the matter will be taken at a UNP group meeting, soon.
The Prime Minister has asserted that the issues arisen with SLFP would be resolved through negotiations.
