The State of Emergency was extended by a month in parliament a short while ago with 132 voting for and 14 voting against it. The TNA and 2 UNP members voted against it while UNP MP Abdul Cader voted in favour. The remaining UNP members as well as the DNA were not present during the vote as they had staged a walkout from Parliament earlier. (KB & GC)

    Even Namal Rajapaksa is against emergency, it is older than him, he said. So the young MP's do not know why the emergency exists!!

    Good Move for your Benefit Mr.Abdul Cader

    Where is the UNP heading ? this shows that there is no common stand among them. Some abstaining from voting others voting against the motion while another voting in favor of the motion. This shows that the government will very soon get the magical 2/3rd in the near future and the UNP will get weakened further while the D.N.A will die a natural death..

    UNP MP will be given a ministers post. He will help the govt to get 2/3 majority. He was a former SLFP.
