Higher Education Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe today requested Speaker Karu Jayasuriya in Parliament to grant the ruling power to the party who has secured majority in parliament and thereby to end the prevailing political turmoil.   

“I believe that you as the Speaker have the potential and capacity to intervene into this by even temporarily halting the parliamentary procedure and discuss the issue with the President,” Minister Rajapakshe said.

While the speaker appreciating the statement made by Minister Rajapakshe, said that he would discuss the issue with the President and take measures collaboratively to resolve the current political turbulence.

    We send our representatives to the legislature to take part in parliamentary proceedings. Not have lunch and go home. Mr. Speaker, please continue with the proceedings. This is a Trogan Horse.

    Here is another swindler dictating the speaker how to do his job ! He has his feet on both sides of the fence this frog can jump on to either direction that's what he is attempting to indicate by his statement.

    Peoples mandate and the one who commands the majority must be the Prome Minister of the country and not on the whims and fancies of any individual.

    This Dealdasa is a slimy parasite. Nobody cares about what you have to say Mr. DD.

    What ever Deal Dasa says or does now, UNF must not allow him to join again. UNF must clearly understand that Deal Dasa is a Trojan Hose. Furthermore, UNF will lose all its credibility if they allow Deal Dasa to come in again.
