The Western Provincial Council today said the appointment of UNP Provincial Councillor Harin Fernando as the new Uva Chief Minister was against the Constitution.


WPC Chief Minister Prasanna Ranatunga said they had informed the Western Province Governor not to proceed with the method used in Uva to appoint another Chief Minister to the Western Province without a written notice from the United Peoples Freedom Alliance.


Councillor Udaya Gammanpila said according to the Constitution, a Chief Minister could be appointed when a member secures the majority in the Council.


“However, it also says that the group leader of the political party that secures the majority of the council should be made the Chief Minister. The UPFA has the majority in the WPC. Therefore, the Governor cannot appoint someone else based on affidavits,” he told a news conference. (YP & LSP)

    Last minute desperate attempts to save their skins. The doomsday is not far away for these self-seeking rogues.
