Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Chairman G.L. Peiris said the removal of Ranil Wickremersinghe from the Premiership by the President was constitutional.
He told a news conference that when one party of the national government withdrew from the government, the term of the Cabinet expires consequently leading to the cancellation of the term of the Prime Minister.
“The Prime Minister can function only when the Cabinet continues to operate. As the UPFA withdrew from the national government, Ranil Wickremesinghe no longer can function as the Prime Minister,” he said.

Mr.GL if MR has the majority why the hell is MS proroguing the Parliament. This itself shows that you guys are just taking the masses into a ride for your own benefit. Power hungry looters.

In his press conference he goes on a long talk of number of ministers in unity govt being more than the number allowed when there is no unity govt. But finishes without giving any justification or based on which part of the constitution he is saying that when one party to the unity govt steps out the cabinet stands dissolved. Even he obviously knows he is bluffing.
