Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa today informed Parliament that he was still studying the matter concerning the dispute over the Opposition Leader post.

The Speaker was to give his ruling in Parliament today on the post of opposition leader.

After some of United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) members accepted portfolios in the government, other opposition parties have staked claim for the post.

This morning, a letter, signed by more than 60 UPFA MPs calling for the appointment of the MP Dinesh Gunawardena as the Opposition Leader replacing Nimal Siripala de Silva, has been handed over to Speaker Rajapaksa.

    The day United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) party accepted portfolios in the government, they are part of government there is no doubt about it and no member of UPFA can not ask for opposition leader.

    If democracy still persists, then Sampanthan is the right choice of opposition leaders. This is because, he controls the highest number of seats. However, coming from a family of racists, this Rajapakse also will make a decision based on his own ethnics.
