There’s no PM or govt., president tells TNA Featured

President Maithripala Sirisena has told the TNA leadership that in terms of the latest court order, there is no prime minister or government at present.

Accordingly, the president will take necessary action within the next 24 hours, says the TNA media office in a twitter message.

President Sirisena had a meeting with the TNA leadership after the Court of Appeal issued an interim injunction restraining Mahinda Rajapaksa and the cabinet from functioning until the hearing of the writ of quo warranto petition filed against them.

The president has also said that he would meet with the National Security Council and other relevant officials.
