Newly appointed Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said he had accepted his new post to save the nation from its present crisis.

“I accepted the Prime Minister’s post to save the nation and to see that people of this country get three square meals while essential goods such as fuel, gas and electricity are available. I cannot do it alone and therefore I need international help,” Mr. Wickremesinghe said.

“I also intend to obtain support of all MPs in Parliament to save the nation,” he added.

Also he said he would like to see the struggle at ‘Gotagogama’ continues. “We will not lay our hands on ‘Gotagogama’ in Galle Face,” he added.

Mr. Wickremesinghe was sworn in for the sixth time today. He entered parliament as a solitary UNP national list MP on June 23, 2021 and became the Prime Minister in 10½ months after becoming an MP.
