Reliable political sources say that there are preparations for a political cohabitation between Ranil Wickremesinghe and the government of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. It is said that several preliminary discussions have been held with the participation of several politicians including the Minister of Finance Basil Rajapaksa and the aim is to obtain the support of Mr Wickremasinghe for the present President and the government.

A top diplomatic source here affirmed on the condition of anonymity that an influential foreign diplomatic mission in Colombo is directly involved in establishing this political alliance. 

Meanwhile, key players in the ruling coalition believe that Mr Wickremasinghe can play a significant role in resolving the country's deep-rooted financial crisis and strengthening weakened foreign relations. Accordingly, some in the government are of the opinion that it would be strategically important to unite Ranil Wickremesinghe with the President and assign him significant government responsibilities to counter the internal rifts.
