UPFA MP Keheliya Rambukwella said that they didn’t accept the motion of confidence presented and passed in support of United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe in Parliament yesterday.   

 

 

Anything passed in this parliament becomes null and void. That is the very reason why we have been boycotting the parliamentary sessions

 

Addressing a news briefing yesterday, MP Rambukwella said they were not in a position to accept anything done and said in ‘an illegal and undemocratic parliament’.   


“Anything passed in this parliament becomes null and void. That is the very reason why we have been boycotting the parliamentary sessions,” Rambukwella said.   


“Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has been partial and biased towards the UNP and acted according to their agenda in Parliament which is undemocratic,” the MP said.   


He added that the Speaker had violated democracy, the standing orders and the tradition of parliament when considering his recent tactics.   


“That’s why we reiterate that the only solution to resolve this prevailing political impasse is to let people elect their representatives by way of a general election,” he said.

Meanwhile, he said the international community and None Governmental Organizations (NGOs) were unduly intervening into the internal affairs of the country.   


“The same individuals who are so concerned over the prevailing political crisis, were not as concerned as when the basic principle of democracy was violated by the previous Government by indefinitely postponing the Local Government and the Provincial Councils elections,” Rambukwella added.
