An unnecessary conflict had been created between the Legislature and the Executive, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said in a letter to President Maithripala Sirisena today.

“The move taken by you on October 26, has created a severe instability in the country. The respect and honour acquired by you, is deteriorating,” the letter said.

He said that representing the majority in Parliament was not being biased but adhering to democracy and maintaining democratic principles.  

“I assure you that the 122 MPs, who voted in favour of the no-faith motion against the Government and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday, were all present in Parliament.

“Although I attempted thrice to carry out the voting in a proper manner, the tense situation prevailed in the Chamber prevented me from doing so,” the Speaker has said.    

“I urge you as the President of Sri Lanka to give heed to the majority and thereby protect the country from the prevailing peril and put an end to the current crisis,” he added.

    Jail is a more appropriate place for him considering the carnage he created in his quest for power.

    Mr Speaker, if you really want to stop the chaos situation, be neutral. Just go through the roles of past Speakers in the legislature.

    Peakash Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:25 PM

    Dias singho Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:10 PM

    Mr Speaker is doing a difficult job trying to conduct Parliamentary sessions with thugs and hooligans determined to prevent the majority in Parliament showing Constitutional rights. President who has created this mess by his unconstitutional actions is trying to teach the Speaker Parliamentary procedure.

    Rasheed Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:10 PM

    Because of the greedy for the power, the country is heading towards Civil War.

    Ajja Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:52 PM

    this is a good trial both side,they can't sleep even well,consciousness practically suspended.the people of the minority have cried before a few months ago due to violence but they were not bothered.

    willowsd Thursday, 15 November 2018 03:46 PM

    If this issue is not resolved today, would create a precedence where incumbent or any future President would be able to dissolve the Parliament anytime he or she wished,

    samatnhi Friday, 16 November 2018 09:44 AM
