Opposition and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe says he will nominate another member to the Parliament Council after TNA MP M.A Sumandiran objected to his name being proposed.

Mr. Wickremesinghe explained that the President would remove himself and his nominee from the council if they continuously boycotted it.

He therefore explained the situation would be back to square one in such a situation as he would have to nominate another member from the minority opposition party once again as per the 18th Amendment of the Constitution.

He said he would keep on nominating persons and would not allow the speaker to nominate anyone and thereby create a cuscus and rap the government. (YP)

    nominee has to be from other community, hence the limits in choice.

    His plan is to create a stalemate-He has to nominate a person & the nominee cant be removed-the provisions are not in the amendment!

    So govt will have to create a further amendment to modify the council structure...

    A clever move finally from Ranil.....

    Who is politicising this council by nominating a member of a party which was once controlled by a terrorist organisation?

    If you are against the 18th amendment please do not nominate anybody.
