I have no in­ten­tion of quit­ting the UNP

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY YOHAN PER­ERA

UNP MP Mayan­tha Dis­sanayake yes­ter­day de­nied re­ports that he was plan­ning to cross­over to the UPFA shortly.

“I heard that my name is in a list of MPS who are plan­ning to cross­over and I am sad­dened about it. My fa­ther has been a long­stand­ing UNPER who joined the party as a young man. I have also been in the party for some time and con­tested sev­eral elec­tions on the UNP ticket. We will not be­tray our re­spect,” he said at a me­dia brief­ing.

Mr. Dis­sanayake said this cri­sis should be re­solved soon be­cause the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity had be­gun show­ing a red light to Sri Lanka since the ap­point­ment of the new gov­ern­ment.

He un­der­scored the fact that the new gov­ern­ment was ap­pointed in an un­con­sti­tu­tional man­ner.
