He has said that the Communist Party would also hold discussions with the other leftist parties in the government.

According to Gunasekera, a common decision on the Supreme Court verdict on the parliamentary select committee (PSC) that probed the impeachment motion is to be reached after discussions with Leader of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP) Minister Prof. Tissa Vitharana and Leader of the Democratic Leftist Front Vasudeva Nanayakkara.
