The no confidence motion which was signed by Parliamentarians representing the Joint Opposition group, cited rigging of a vote during a supplementary budget vote as the reason behind the motion.

The Joint Opposition said that the vote was rigged even though the Secretary General Dammika Dassanayake announced that the vote received 33 in favour while 31 voted against it. Subsequent to protest and scrutiny of the CCTV cameras, it was verified that the vote had received 31 in favour and 31 against.

      I will believe what you say if this Yahapalanaya turned yamapalanaya jokers are honest and real.

      At the moment all that is missing is the white vans. But the fraud and corruption will soon equal MRs misrule.

      When the country is in dire straits all that the parliament wants is more luxury cars for the parliamentarians. The MPs have all sold their luxury car permits costing the taxpayer billions of rupees. MR and his brothers are free and having a ball at the expense of My3 and RW. Sajin Vaas is becoming more obese with the ill earned money.

    If a total of 62 votes were not allocated correctly, by the Secretary General of Parliament, he should explain why.
    If a satisfactory explanation was not given to the Speaker, the SG should honourably resign.
