COLOMBO: The political crisis in the island country will be resolved in seven days, Sri Lanka’s President Maithripala Sirisena claimed on Wednesday. His assurance came after the new government appointed by him was temporarily suspended by a Sri Lankan court.
 
A Court of Appeal had on Monday issued an interim order to prevent former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his party members from acting as Prime Minister and the government till the case is heard on December 12.
 
"The current political crisis will be resolved in one week. It will be completely resolved. This is an effort I will make for the public, for you, for our motherland. I extend the hand of peace to all politicians and political parties," Sirisena said in a statement.
 
Sri Lanka has been embroiled in a political crisis since Sirisena suddenly sacked Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on October 26 and appointed Rajapaksa in his place.
