Message to Aragalaya from the President. The younger generation’s opinions must be taken into account, according to President Ranil Wickremesinghe, and their demands for system change are legitimate.
Yesterday, he claimed in a press conference that the previous structure of two competing factions had only destroyed the nation.
The President declared his intention to collaborate with all political parties that are represented in Parliament, claiming that young people in the country have asked why all parties cannot work together to create the nation.
In response to the protests, he stated that it is not democratic to set fire to homes and seize the positions of Prime Minister and President in the name of the struggle of the people.
He added that it is against the law and that anyone who oppose the law will face consequences.
