A no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe would have no impact to the enactment of the 20A because the President could appoint a new Prime Minister, who had the majority support in Parliament after the motion, UPFA Parliamentarian G.L. Peiris said today.
“We have assured our fullest support to the 20 A. The no-confidence motion against Prime Minister is not connected to it. President has a Constitutional responsibility to appoint a new Prime Minister who has the majority support in Parliament after the no-confidence motion. Then the 20 A could be enacted by the Government with the majority in Parliament,” he said.
Dr. Peiris said Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe should take complete responsibility with regard to the bond issue in the Central Bank.
“It was Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who appointed a person who was not loyal to Sri Lanka. According to our Constitution, Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran cannot work without taking oath in Sri Lanka. He is someone who has taken oath in another country and rejected loyalty to this country. So, he does not have any right to do any task in the Central Bank,” he said.
He said Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe did everything possible to cover up this and added that if a no-confidence motion was not brought against such a person, it would be unpatriotic. (Ajith Siriwardana)

If the MS.. want to pass 20 A he can appoint a new PM from the present opposition and pass 20A. no confident motion is nothing to do with 20A.

Prof GL f you re so confident that the appointment is not legal why not show your skills in court?

One of the political mistakes of former president Chandrika Bandaranayakke was taking people like Mervyn Silva, SB Dissanayakke and GL Peiris into politics. GL Peiris is confused himself and confuses others also. While he was the minister ,he mislead the president and messed up the foreign affairs.Can anyone tell at least one contribution from him for the country during many decades of his political career.

you idiots did not vote for this President or the government so you have no mortal right to ask for PM from your party?

Makes sense, except no support from the President. Keep in mind, the President was brought to power by the UNP. Not by the "so called patriots " , the Kuddhas, Ethonol barons and robbers.
