The UNP today (16) said there is a need for a broad alliance to fight against the anti-democratic actions of the government.
UNP Spokesperson and parliamentarian Gayantha Karunathileka told The Sunday Leader that the party is ready to assist such an alliance.
Karunathileka said the party is even ready to assist such an alliance as proposed by the JVP and form a broad alliance together, as the UNP was already in the process of forming an alliance to restore democracy in the country and fight for what is right.
According to Karunathileka, the leadership of the alliance was not an important fact as long as it opposed what he called the wrong decisions of the government.
JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva yesterday told a press briefing that the party had already initiated a dialogue to form a broad alliance to take on the government.
