No more talks with MR: JHU


Our doors are closed and all the opportunities we offered to President Rajapaksa to work with us have run out, Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) General Secretary Patali Champika Ranawaka said yesterday.

“We are looking forward to having talks with common opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena. We are expecting a positive response to our proposals from him,” he said adding that they were ready to work with any group which was agreeable to implementing their proposals.

“We are ready to support any candidate, who is ready to remove unrestricted powers of the Executive Presidency, establish independent commissions and abolish the present electoral system,” he said.
