UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella and TNA MP M.A. Sumanthiran said that the resolution passed in parliament a short while ago was flawed and thus invalid.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror after the conclusion of the vote MP Lakshman Kiriella said “it was a sad day for the country.”
He went on to point out that the resolution presented was the same resolution that was tabled on November 6.
“The speaker didn’t give a proper reason as to why our objections were not accepted,” he said.
TNA MP M.A. Sumanthiran said that since the resolution was flawed the President cannot act on it.
“Its flawed, the resolution tabled was to a point a select committee and nothing else. If the President acts on it he will be acting unconstitutionally,” he said.( Hafeel Farisz)
