JO abandons struggle for opposition leader position!

The joint opposition says it has abandoned a struggle to secure the opposition leader position and resumed another to make Mahinda Rajapaksa the president again.

JO MP Kumar Welgama has told Neth FM that it was pointless to
go after the opposition leader position, as the speaker has given his ruling.

However, his colleague Bandula Gunawardena told a media briefing previously that they had started the struggle for the position only after the speaker announced his decision.
