UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa presented a motion of confidence in support of UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe in Parliament.

The motion is aimed at positioning Wickremesinghe as the MP commanding the support of a majority in the House, making him eligible for the post of Prime Minister.

Presenting the motion, Premadasa said Wickremesinghe should be reappointed the Prime Minister as he commands the support of a parliamentary majority.

He also added the current crisis could only be resolve through Wickremesinghe’s reinstatement.

    UNP is showing some class. Hope the SIRA-MARA mobsters reciprocate by doing the right thing and returning to the opposition benches.

    ” current crisis could only be resolve through Wickremesinghe’s reinstatement”

    I add, more importantly the sacking of Maithripala Sirisena from the seat of Presidency.

    The young generation especially the school children must not learn the wrong lesson that to achieve excellence in life one has to tell outright lies and backstab those who supported you.

    The President cannot relinquish his powers unless parliament decides with a 2/3 majority AND the people approves it in a referendum.

    Vide the SC Judgement delivered on the Constitutionality of 19A

    There was no referendum post the SC judgement.
    Does that mean Sirisena ‘s powers to dissolve Parliament is still intact?

    Will the 7 judge bench overturn their own judgement?

    We saw on TV during the presentation of confidence motion the spontaneous unity of all the members of the UNP . We did not see anyone the likes of Sirisena who took advantage to backstab their leader.

    Sirisena is a unreliable, untrustworthy, incapable person who really never should have been elected to Parliament leave alone becoming a President. At least now we have correctly identified him, he should be impeached from his chair as a priority.

    He taught wrong lessons to future presidents, future Prime Ministers, future MPs, future youths and kids. He gave a wrong example of a decent human being. Earlier we forget this man of shame and disgrace will be better and will help the country as a whole to recover.

    God save Sri Lanka

    The confidence motion should be welcomed. In fact, it is a no confidence motion against President Sirisena’s illegal political coup.

    MS has got some complexity..
    He has been indecisive in taking action .
    He is not fit to lead 22 Sri Lankans in this digital age.
    Intellectuals of Sri Lanka must move on to take action.
    Another two months; if M&S does not do anything the country will be like Somalia..
    God does not come down to act for M&S .
    He must do it or leave it .

    Unfortunately UNP is undergoing a season of Drought for good leadership.Pity.
    Hence, UNP has got hold of another party( TNA) with similar attitude for Support.How many times have the UNP cheated the Tamils? and how often has TNA done the same thing to Tamils. . Birds of the same feather flock together!
