We don’t accept confidence motion: Keheliya

12 December 2018 03:36 pm - 17     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UPFA MP Keheliya Rambukwella said that they don’t accept the motion of confidence presented and passed in support of United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe in Parliament today.

Addressing a news briefing, MP Rambukwella said they were not in a position to accept anything done and said in ‘an illegal and undemocratic parliament’.

“Anything passed in this parliament becomes null and void. That is the very reason why we have been boycotting the parliamentary sessions,” Rambukwella said.

“Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has been partial and bias to the UNP and acted according to their agenda in Parliament which is undemocratic,” the MP said. 

He added that the Speaker had violated the Democracy, the Standing Orders and the Tradition of parliament when considering his recent tactics. 

“That’s why we reiterate that the only solution to resolve this prevailing political impasse is to let people elect their representatives by way of a general election,” he said. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Keheliya you know that you are not accepted by the people.

    Jack Wednesday, 12 December 2018 03:53 PM

    You don’t accept NCM on MR and confidence motion on MR. What do you actually want?

    Samson Wednesday, 12 December 2018 03:54 PM

    Surely you Jokers will want public funds at the end of month. Only MS and MR are democratic whereas all others including Karu are undemocratic and partial. Anyway who are you to accept or not accept a confidence or a no confidence motion. There is no provision for a president to appoint a friend who has no majority as a PM.

    Once the Supreme Court Judgement on dissolution of parliament is announced then we will know who are illegal and who are legal.

    vasaliya Wednesday, 12 December 2018 04:08 PM

    You have no authority to reject the majority which is 117 greater than 113. This is not madamulana parliament where everyone is a "eheya". Take your ugly face and bugger off...
