Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne is of the view that the outstanding victory handed into the Freedom Alliance is a blessing given by the people to fast track the people’s friendly accelerated development programme mooted by the Government.

Prime Minister Jayaratne said this clearly displayed to the world the Government’s democratic process. He said it is now opportune for every one to work with one aim sinking all differences along with this positive message imparted to the global community.
The Prime Minister expressed his gratitude to each and everyone who contributed to the victory of the Freedom Alliance.
