The United National Party (UNP) today said the decision made by the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) to appoint its MP Dinesh Gunawardane as the Leader of House was illegal.

In a statement, MP Gayantha Karunathilake said the approval of the majority is needed to make any appointment in Parliament.

“The announcement of appointing a certain individual from a minority party is against the democracy and also the tradition of parliament,” he said.

    Hello, mister, where were you all these years when minority party TNA with just 16 seats had the Opposition Leader post????

    vithura Saturday, 03 November 2018 11:50 PM

    Do not show your ignorance here, for SLFP was in govt together with the UNP, hence could not have been treated as the opposition, period!

    Then, how could Hon Lakshman Kiriella function as Leader of House from 20 January 2015 - 26 June 2015 in the seventh parliament

    Haa haa .. then How did your government recognise TNA leader as the opposition leader. What is good for the goose is good for the gander too.

    The problem is whether the appointment of MP Dinesh Gunawardena, as the Leader of the House is Illegal or not.

    My3 and MR say they have a majority, but before they can form a new gov they need to show that majority in parliament. Throwing out the gov just by claiming they have a majority is nonsense. A vote must be taken in parliament.Anybody can claim anything, but that doesn't make it true.

    During a general election, could a party be sworn in without a majority. First they should show a minimum of 113 sates to take over power. Then what's all this bullshit talks that have the majority. Come on prove it in parliament.
