The SLMC’s Supreme Council convened today and decided to vote against the motion, SLMC leader Minister Rauf Hakeem said.
“As a party which is a part of the government, we see this no-confidence motion as having been brought against the government. The supreme council decided that we should vote to defeat the no-confidence motion.”
“We intend to brief the Prime Minister regarding certain questions that were raised during the council’s meeting,” he told reporters in Colombo.
