The no-confidence motion signed by 32 Joint Opposition MPs against Foreign Affairs Minister Ravi Karunanayake was handed over to the General Secretary of Parliament this afternoon.

The motion was submitted by a group of MPs led by MP Bandula Gunawardena.

Deputy Secretary General of Parliament Neil Iddawala confirmed that a No Confidence Motion had been received against the Minister.

He told the Daily Mirror that a large group of Joint Opposition MPs came and handed over the motion at the Speaker's Office.

He said it would be placed on the Order Book by the Speaker.

As per the Parliamentary practice, when a No-Confidence Motion is handed over against a Minister or an MP, it is normally given precedence over other matters.

A No-Confidence Motion lapses on the prorogation of the House.

MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage said the Minister should resign forthwith rather than waiting to be unseated after a vote of No-Confidence based on this motion.

He said the allegations against the Minister were serious.

"When I raised them, nobody took into account. I made the same charges. Today, they are proven," he said.  (Yohan Perera)

    Well done Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:09 PM

    Well done. I love JO MPs.

    Gune Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:31 PM

    I don't support the JO at all. But in this instance very good move by them, Corruption must be dealt with severely. After that we need to get MR and his clan and Mahindananda and the gang , Wimal and his stooges and Jonston and his brood into the dock.

    Patriotic Thursday, 03 August 2017 08:37 PM

    Very rightly said!

    shanthapriya Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:33 PM

    JO panic, its too early, wait for another 2,3 weeks as more information will be available for mps to decide

    Hari Mani Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:37 PM

    Well done; some sanity at last. Kick these smug out of public administration for ever!!

    AjithZ Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:41 PM

    Think that all should support the motion and send this man home. He is taking the legal system and the Sri Lankan people for a joke by saying that he didn't know anything about the penthouse payments. Must teach him a lesson.

    Sunil Friday, 04 August 2017 08:53 AM

    Sending him home is not enough. Bring all these rogues to justice.

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:42 PM

    I am a strong supporter of UNP, but at the moment, I will stand with JO to send Ravi home .

    ravi Wikramasinghe Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:44 PM

    ok this is the strategy if JO : handing over of No-Faith before the completion of the inquiry will be an excuse for MS

    Aladeniya Kirimathaya Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:45 PM

    Very good move, try to send Ravi home, you may seek help from some Anti-Ravi UNP members in the Parliament.

    Saman Thursday, 03 August 2017 05:58 PM

    Sri Lanka parliment in one sentence.. thieves for thieves and thieves against thieves.

    Upul Thursday, 03 August 2017 06:08 PM

    This is what we need right now. I am not a supporter of any party, only support the genuine people who tries to uplift the country with their honest efforts. People like RK is a definite liability to our country whose main aim is to build self, portraying to build the nation. There are many more in parliament like him.

    sameer Thursday, 03 August 2017 06:10 PM

    For once i support the JO, UNP should be the first to kick him out both from the parliament n party crooks like this will never let our country grow but they will keep their wealth multiplying.

    nalin Thursday, 03 August 2017 06:25 PM

    If it is a secret ballot which, is the right way to go then, the motion will succeed.

    TONY Thursday, 03 August 2017 06:34 PM

    THE MOTION WILL BE DEFEATED. BETTER FOR THE COMMISSION TO GET RAVIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER TO GIVE STATEMENTS

    suresh de silva Thursday, 03 August 2017 06:39 PM

    I dont like JO or SLFP but in this case I am with JO, I never liked RK he is a big jillmart man send him home never again to parliment

    Ihale Thursday, 03 August 2017 06:47 PM

    the NFC will be valid if submitted by MPs who are not accused of plundering of both public and private funds including selling of duty-free vehicles and abuse of power to date.

    Citizen Friday, 04 August 2017 06:29 AM

    Don't you think there should be mass protests to get this man out? This is pathetic for us to sit and watch and to be taken as idiots with his idiotic and disgusting behaviour. So thick skinned, still smiling at the camera - if there is some sincerity will hide his face in shame. These are a different bunch to rest of the human kind I think, born to steal and lie.
