Mr. Se­mas­inghe said the UNP had failed to nom­i­nate some­one other than Mr. Wick­remesinghe to the post of Prime Minister be­cause of an in­ter­nal cri­sis in the party.

Com­ment­ing on the re­cent par­lia­men­tary ses­sions, Mr. Se­mas­inghe said Speaker Karu Jaya­suriya should be held re­spon­si­ble for con­ven­ing these ses­sions by spend­ing tax pay­ers money.“all these ses­sions were held to pro­mote one po­lit­i­cal party,” he said.
