House Leader Dinesh Gunawardane said today it was the government which could move a financial motion whereas the opposition handed over a motion to the Speaker limiting the Prime Minister's expenditure.

He told a news conference held at the parliament complex that the opposition had planned to move the motion in the House today but they had to hand it over to the Deputy Speaker in writing.

"He informed the opposition that their motion cannot be taken up today. According to Standing Orders, it has to be included in the order paper for five days," Mr Gunawardane said.

He said what they insisted from the beginning was to adhere to Standing Orders and added that only they as the government could present motions in parliament. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    This can't be Philip's son. Did his wife cheat him? Very unlikely but nothing could be ruled out.

    Yeah you are right for once...The real Govt and not your fake Govt can do this and it has been done...

    What you say is correct as you don't belong to the real Government.

    Rohan Monday, 19 November 2018 09:43 PM

    You are not the government .

    Well this crazy guy seems to only think the parliament is the only legal place when it comes to issues hitting MR! when a legitimate pm is sown in for 4 years by people, then again its up to the 225 member parliament that should vote to see if MR should stay or go after coming from the back door. There was no way in from the front in this life and resorting to back side entrance was the only way.
