“In the last presidential election, People voted to the President and the PM without considering political parties. No party received majority, because expectations of the people were to unification of two main political parties. We don’t require party politics, now. We can build up political parties anytime, but not the country. Therefore two main political parties should be unified in the LG election, if not it will be a betrayal to the people’s mandate” Minister Ranatunga further stated.
