In the wake of the no confidence motion submitted, Northern Province Governor Reginald Cooray asked Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran to establish whether he enjoyed the majority support in the council within the stipulated time.

Fifteen members of the Northern Provincial Council has handed over a no confidence motion against the Chief Minister. Besides, this group which comprises members of the opposition seeks to rope in three more members to their side against the Chief Minister.

The Governor said steps would be taken to inform the Chief Minister to establish whether he enjoyed the majority support of the council.

He said so when asked about the no-faith motion against the Chief Minister that was handed over by a group of members of the Northern Provincial Council.

He said steps would be taken to inform the Chief Minister to prove this in due course and also said it was his duty to confirm the receipt of such a petition.

Accordingly, the Governor will take steps to get the affidavits from the members who signed the no-faith motion and to ensure the authenticity of the signatures placed by the members.

A meeting was to be conducted last evening to discuss the crisis triggered by the move to unseat the Chief Minister in this manner. (Romesh Madushanka)

    If the CM co-operate with the Govt. he will surely survive, if he supports LTTE still then he has to go home.

    Now Wigneswaran is trapped by his own men, this time he must resign and go home.

    German Jacob Friday, 16 June 2017 09:48 AM

    He cannot prove anything because his mind is soaked with LTTE not anything.

    Vijith Friday, 16 June 2017 09:50 AM

    He is not a savior of Tamils, he is only the savior of few Jaffna Tamils who has links with the LTTE still.

    Open Letter to the Govenor. Jaffna was the cultural centre to the educated Hindu high caste Tamils for centuries.The LTTE,Homicidal Indian Army and in the 80s the Sri Lankan Army were responsible for the the total destruction of this Tamils.Mr Wigneswaran who belong to the cultured Tamils being elected as the Chief Minister after what had happened to Jaffna was a MIRACLE. Govenor on behalf of the cultured Hindu Tamils from the expatriate community I am appealing to you not join the Tamil Christian plot to remove the Chief Minister.

    Dr Thiru Friday, 16 June 2017 12:58 AM

    Chief Minister Wigneswaran is effectively the leader of the mainstream Sri Lankan Tamils who are more than 80% Hindus.If he is removed there would be severe consequences as he has lot of support among Hindu Tamils.
