President Maithripala Sirisena prorogued Parliament because he feared an impeachment motion to be brought against him by the United National Party (UNP) backbenchers, the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) said today.

MP Prasanna Ranatunga told a news conference that the UNP backbenchers were planning to submit a impeachment motion against the President.

“They are reaching out to other political parties seeking help in this regard. UNP backbenchers approached JO as well. We informed them that if they brought the motion in a proper manner, we May make a decision after submitting a proposal to our leadership committee,” he said.

The MP said the gazette to prorogue Parliament had been issued in haste because the time of reconvening Parliament had not been mentioned in it.

“Only the date has been mentioned. They behave like infants who can’t get a job done properly,” he said and added that the unity government cannot be maintained hereafter because the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has been split into many factions.

“The SLFP is barely a proper party now. It is more like a quarter of a party. How can an agreement be maintained between such a small faction and another party to establish a Unity Government? When Parliament is reconvened the Speaker decide about the Unity Government which is hanging by a thread,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Parliament was prorogued by the President to block the passage of the special court establishment bill.

    JO led by MR asked for the split of the party by taking a few away with him. Now he has the majority of SLFP MPs. MR wants the leadership back. MS had no backbone to stand up to MR and this is the result.

    Prorogation was only to ensure that the establishment of the new courts are not done to protect rogue SLFPers by blocking the passage of the act.

    We the floaters welcome a NCM against Ranil. However you are trying to piggyback on it as you and your “Pottu” buddies are politically bankrupt.
