Minister of Science, Technology and Research Susil Premajayantha stated that the majority of the UPFA will not support the continuation of the current unity government.  

When contacted by Ada Derana the Minister said that there was no change in the decision taken by the President on February 11 and the decision taken by the UPFA MPs after the cabinet meeting.

The is a clear inability to proceed with the incumbent Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, and it was convened after the Ministerial meeting, said Premajayantha.

The Minister emphasized that the UPFA and the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna were in the same camp and the vote for the JVP should also be considered as an anti-government vote. Therefore, 65 percent of the votes were anti-government, the Minister stressed. 

Therefore, the best option is to handover the government  to the ones who are capable to do a government said Minister Susil Premajayantha.
