This is not the Court's final decision: Namal

13 November 2018 07:41 pm - 29     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa said the Supreme Court’s interim order on the dissolution of parliament was not the Court's final decision.

In a tweet he said he had never seen politicians get ‘so excited’ over postponing of elections.

“The UNP has a history of postponing polls but eventually voters will decide,” he said.

    Yes correct. In the mean time go and prove your majority in parliament tomorrow which os also an election to prove majority. You cant be scared of that right?

    Present parliament does not depict the ground-truth. People's mandate is above all.

    pulle Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:59 PM

    @palle. peoples mandate was revealed in 2015.

    Anyway, SC didn't wait until the 06th of January to satisfy you! It was fast enough, unisono and is a stay (away from) order.

    Nuwan Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:27 PM

    They call you synthetic lawyer don't they?Better keep your mouth shut without becoming a laughing stock.

    Ruwan Tuesday, 13 November 2018 10:22 PM

    He is the laughingstock already. Nothing to become:-)

    Shelley Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:28 PM

    Let us allow Namal baby to have some solace for a short period.

    Raj Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:31 PM

    Yes we know how you passed law exams. Why don't you keep your big mouth shut.

    Sri lankan Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:33 PM

    Does this under the table lawyer realise the importance of upholding the constitution of a country ??We are exited about the rule of law and not for postponing elections.If not for the constitution the President can dissolve the parliament even one day after the election !!!

    Dee Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:34 PM

    Yes actually this would have been the ideal time to have elections and send your lot off to hell permanently

    Roshan Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:37 PM

    Everyone knows its an INTERIM ORDER. You dont need to educate us. We're not in 1900's so dont bother educating us and wasting your time. Thanks in advance...

    Democrat Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:37 PM

    We also don’t see people excited over dissolution of parliament. It’s elected for 5 years. We are paying taxes for each election. It costs 500 chores according to election commissioner. You think it’s fun to have elections at somebodies discretion

    De Silva Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:42 PM

    Get lost Namal... Accept the defeat....

    Shas Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:44 PM

    So according to your logic whenever a problem happens election should be held.Then why do you(MPs) exists?I don't know much about constitution but I don't thing that's how should work.

    Jaya Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:44 PM

    Can't you appear there on behalf of Siresena with your arguments?

    karthi Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:45 PM

    You are right - this is only a trial the final will be disastrous for you all.

    CRY baby Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:48 PM

    Come on Namal - what are you trying to prove - weren't you all beating your drums that even the present decision will be in your favour. - and now that it is other wise - you have to give this speech on these lines , - please behave

    Voldy Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:48 PM

    No, but it means parliament can convene and defeat your father's illegal government.

    Samson Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:50 PM

    Synthetic lawyer is correct. People won their rights for democracy. Now show your strength in Parliament and get the Parliament and the president dissolved so that both elections can be held on the same day.

    Busted Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:57 PM

    Oh! You sure know what it is. You should not speak from the end that sun doesn't shine.

    Park Tuesday, 13 November 2018 08:58 PM

    Impeach the President immediately. Go for Presidential election.

    jayantha Tuesday, 13 November 2018 09:01 PM

    Yehiya Tuesday, 13 November 2018 10:23 PM

    Good . Step by step oherwise one PM will die by heart attack.

    This decision says that it is not that easy to define the constitution with one or two words. We all must support to keep law and order at highest place, it for our own safety.
