Speaking at the Parliament a short while ago, Deputy Minister Ajith P. Perera claimed that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa supports the government on the UNHRC Resolution, generating surprised applause from the government side of the House.

Perera recalled that the former President, who is a UPFA MP from Kurunegala District, had requested for a 15 minute speech in Parliament today.

However, MP Dallas Alahapperuma said in Parliament that Rajapaksa will not take part in the debate, Perera pointed out.

Rajapaksa avoided committing himself in the debate, since he supports the government in the UNHRC Resolution issue, Perera claimed.

If it was not the case, Rajapaksa still has around three hours to attend the Parliamentary debate and speak against the resolution, Perera also said.
