* Sri Lanka opposition parties not to work together
Sun, Dec 16, 2012, 10:03 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 16, Colombo: Sri Lanka's minor opposition party, Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the party would not work together with the main opposition United National Party (UNP) on any issue.

JVP politburo member and parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the party did not approve some actions of the UNP.

He said the JVP did not approve the UNP's actions regarding the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice and therefore, JVP was not prepared to work with the UNP.

According to Dissanayake, the UNP has acted in a manner that was favorable to the Rajapaksa government without taking into consideration that the impeachment motion was a result of the conflict between the government and the judiciary.

He pointed out that the UNP has maintained a stance that action against the impeachment motion should be limited to parliament.

Dissanayake noted that the UNP has also approved the independent committee prospered by the President to avoid a struggle against the impeachment motion.
