Leader of the Mahajana Eksath Peramuna and former Minister Dinesh Gunawardena said several Parliamentarians attached to the United National Party (UNP) will defect to the opposition within next few weeks.
The observation was made at a press conference held at the Abeyarama Temple in Narahenpita on Monday (25) afternoon.
“The present government is unstable. Therefore, a number of UNPers have asked to join us,” he added.
North Western Province Chief Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara at a recent event also asserted that the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) would form a coalition government after the forthcoming general election, thus, several political parties are expected to join hands with the party.
