115 for Mahinda? Revealed ... those who want to join
United Alliance has already collected the required number of MPs in order to show the majority to appoint Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa the Prime Minister, information connected to their party has said. There are rumours that in the near future, Athureliye Rathana Thero who was nominated from the national list of UNP, four from the United National Party, three others from the TNA, two from Rishad Badurdeen's party and two MPs from who contested from the Muslim Congress under Eksath Jathika Peramuna have joined the government and consented to receiveministerial portfolios.
As such, it has been reported that by 3rd November 2018 (yesterday) the 103 that the Mahinda faction is already in possession is further strengthened with 12 others joining in, thus increasing the total to 115. If circumstances are such, with the addition of TNA support, the value of 115 of the UNP would collapse to 103.
