By Akitha Perera

A UNP-led national government was likely to be set up next week, parliament sources said, yesterday.

The UNP sent a letter to Secretary General Dhammika Dassanayake, yesterday, informing its willingness to set up a national government.

The letter stated that the UNP would form a national government with several parties that would uphold the principles of good governance.

Leader of the House and Public Enterprise, Kandyan Heritage and Kandy City Development Minister Lakshman Kiriella told The Island that the UNP would accommodate any party which was willing to help protect democracy while providing relief to people and paying off the loans obtained by the Mahinda Rajapaksa government.

Kirielle said that the names of the parties would be announced later and a vote would be taken on the motion to be presented to Parliament to form a national government.
