The Samagi Jana Balawegaya says the party is willing to consider the statement by the Deputy Leader of the United National Party Ruwan Wijewardene, who claimed he is willing to work together with the SJB.

Parliamentarian Tissa Attanayake speaking to NewsRadio said a clear statement however must be made whether the UNP leadership and party are of the same stance.

He stated that they were made aware of Wijewardene’s statement via media adding that no official statement has been communicated to the Samagi Jana Balawegaya. However, Attanayake said his statement was positive.

The MP added the United National Party leadership is yet to grasp the message sent to the party at the recently concluded General Election.

He noted that the SJB will respond positively if a clear statement is made pertaining to the UNPs stance.
