“Co-habitation, not confrontation” say Catholic Bishops

[November 13, 2003 - 10.15 GMT]

The Catholic Bishops have appealed to President Kumaratunga, Prime Minister Wickremasinghe and other political leaders to seriously consider an immediate resolution to the current political situation through dialogue and compromise.

“It is our firm conviction and the present impasse could be resolved only by co-habitation and not by confrontation,” said a release from the Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Sri Lanka.

“We appeal both to the governing party and the opposition in parliament to make every effort in the name of our suffering people to explore the possibility of a Government of Consensus which we have always advocated,” the release further said.
