Former Speaker Karu Jayasuriya today rejected the reports that said he would reconvene the Parliament unilaterally.

"While fighting Covid-19, Sri Lanka does not want another constitutional crisis. Therefore, rumours that I would reconvene the Parliament unilaterally are false. All efforts must be taken by the Executive to avert a crisis. In a dispute, I am bound to uphold judiciary’s decision," he tweeted today.

Yesterday, Mr. Jayasuriya said as the election date has been fixed now, all effort must be made not to allow a constitutional crisis, that can cost the nation dearly of its economy and legitimacy. 

"With good faith, I hope Sri Lanka can confine Covid-19 to a health and economic challenge, not a political one too," he said.

    I too would like to join Sunil de Silva in his salute to a former officer and gentleman. The love of such people for their country and the people rarely dies. The need of the hour is only recognised by those with such passion.

    Don't worry, President will appoint another committee headed by Basil Rajapaksa to redress this crisis.
