The government representatives are reported to have told Speaker Karu Jayasuriya that they would agree to a no-confidence motion only if it could be taken up through the procedure stipulated in the Standing Orders.

Chief Government Whip Dinesh Gunawardane has told the party leaders meeting that the government should be recognized first and then a no-confidence motion should be brought in line with Standing Orders and parliamentary traditions.

He said once the motion is submitted, it should be placed on the Order Paper and the Business Committee of Parliament should decide on a date for the debate.

Mr. Gunawardane had pointed out the Speaker had not given a favourable reply to the government request. Government representatives were of the view that the no-confidence motion was a serious business that should not be rushed through.

Meanwhile, the government urged the Speaker to allow police to record statements from UNP MPs Palitha Thewarapperuma and Ranjan Ramanayake who were alleged to have smuggled knives into the Chamber during the ruckus on Thursday.

    It is unbelievable whether you are son of Late Phlip Gunawardane. .

    Sils Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:00 AM

    We recognize the GOVERNMENT that we the people elected. NOT the government that you are a member of!

    Don Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:01 AM

    Dinesh and the clan, How can anyone accept you all as a government when there is no majority in parliament.

    Nana Saturday, 17 November 2018 09:59 PM

    When SLFT left the national Govt, No body has a majority..

    Jack Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:08 AM

    Don Juwan Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:13 AM

    Your Excellency MR, I am your most obedient slave What is right, what is wrong does not concern me. I will cry laud for you and for your family to my death.

    Irate Citizen Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:17 AM

    You are not a costitutionally elected goverment! You have grabbed control uncostitutionally! Now, you want us Sri Lankan citizens to acknowledge you as a legitimate goverment?!! Get lost, and let the legitimately elected goverment take over. We don't want you.

    Sunil Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:20 AM

    Shameless rouges like you will recognize govt. Just for these narrow minded people benefit, entire nation at a stake.

    Gerard Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:26 AM

    Shameless Gunawardena..what earthly use to recognize this government and then go for a no confidence..already 122 have given their verdict ... for heavens sake go and go now..and take that mad dog Silisena with you....all of you have wrecked this country...people ...good lesson when you vote.....

    Nana Saturday, 17 November 2018 10:02 PM

    Ranil was also appointed without majority. President has the power to appoint anyone as PM whom he "Thinks" has majority. Then to change him you need a NCM done properly.

    Gemunu Saturday, 17 November 2018 07:28 PM

    You and your ancestors have not done anything useful for Sri Lanka. You rotten lot have always created trouble for the country.

    Amarasiri Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:06 PM

    Dinesh, Gunawardane,Are you the joker for Sirisena and Mahinda? Who needs to accept illegally stolen goods with the thieves?

    Paramanathan k Saturday, 17 November 2018 09:46 PM

    Dinesh is patriot is greedy and power hungry with his master Mahinda gang to help them to ransack the treasury.
