Sri Lanka’s president will take ‘necessary action’ within 24 hours - TNA

Sri Lanka’s president Maithripala Sirisena will take “necessary action” in the next 24 hours and will meet with the national security council on the issue of political prisoners, said the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) after a court order this morning barred Mahinda Rajapaksa from acting as prime minister.

The TNA said that its “leadership” had met with Sirisena, who said that there was no prime minister or government at present.

“Accordingly he will take necessary action within the next 24hrs,” the TNA tweeted.

It also added that following this “necessary action”, Sirisena stated he would meet with the national security council with regards to the issue of political prisoners.
