Ranil agrees to step down

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told political leaders he is willing to step down and make way for a new government.

Wickremesinghe was taking this decision as fuel distribution will recommence and the debt sustainability report for the International Monetary Fund was due to be finalised shortly, according to a statement from his media office.

His decision comes after party leaders met in Colombo to try to resolve a crisis that started earlier Saturday (09) with protesters entering the official residence and offices of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. They were demanding for the President’s resignation, a call later echoed in the meeting by political leaders who also sought the same for Wickremesinghe.
