can you get elected from one party upon whose policies the people voted you in and then cross over to another party with opposing policies without getting the okay from your constituency whether it is acceptable to them for their MP to change sides? Can an MP on his own decide such a change? Shouldnt the voters have a say? Shouldnt his seated be vacated immediately? Is this constitutional? Is it democratic?

Cross overs needs to stopped and needs to enshrined in the constitution. Anyway our Constitution is mess, it is not even respected by our first citizen, what more you can expect from others.

Why not all paries propose a law banning change of party after elected to parliament ? If any body want to jump he he has to face a by election and then only validty of vote in the parliament to be counted.

These opportunistic leaches should be thought a lesson never to deceive people. Politics is about policies which should not change. These crooks deceive, disregard, humiliate the voters and NEVER NEVER should be allowed to do politics ever.

You weren't elected on UNP ticket to jump ship and support MR. You are not messing with UNP you are messing with our rights. We will not forget it... how much were you paid?
