The JVP yesterday said the next government would most probably be a coalition. It would never join such coalitions, but support any progressive move beneficial to the people, it added.


Addre-ssing a press conference at party headquarters at Pelawatte, General Secretary of the JVP Tilvin Silva said that UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had spoken of forming a government comprising all parties in Parliament. "We know that people can not comprehend the systems of governance he is talking about. It is only a concept.


"We are not ready to support such coalition moves. But, we would support any move that help people and ensure their rights


"We supported the 19th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution and will not hesitate to exercise our power for the gain of the people.


Silva said that both major parties, the UNP and SLFP, were repeating the same old lines and none of them had been able to come up with new vision to steer the country out of the current quagmire of instability. "They go on making promises, one after the other, and now people have started thinking whether any party would really be able to deliver them from their suffering. They have realised that they have been taken for a ride."


JVP Central Committee Member, Colombo District Candidate Lakshman Nipunarachchi also addressed the media.
