President Chandrika Kumaratunge Friday agreed to discuss the Marxist Janata Vimukthi Peramuna's political proposals with the leaders of constituent parties in the ruling People's Alliance. The JVP's parliamentary group leader Wimal Weerawanse said, "the President has agreed to a number of proposals in our program. She wanted more time to discuss with her political allies about the proposal to form a probation government."

JVP leaders discussed with President Chandrika about the political crisis in the country Friday afternoon for about two hours.

Mr.Weerawanse said, "the President informed us that she needed more time to study our proposals that included general election under a caretaker government and the establishment of independent commissions for police, judiciary, media and public service, with the constituent political parties in the ruling People's Alliance."

According to Mr. Weerawanse, the President assured the JVP delegation that a decision on the formation of a probation government would be made available to them shortly in writing.

The JVP delegation informed the President that postponed referendum should be cancelled and the prorogued parliament re-summoned to create a conducive situation to implement their set of proposals.
