Secretary General of Parliament has informed Chairman of the Elections Commission that MP Ranjan Ramanayake ceased to be a member of Parliament in terms of the provisions of the Constitution, Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardane informed Parliament today.
“After consideration of legal opinion and provisions of the Constitution, the Secretary General of Parliament in terms of the Parliamentary Elections Act has informed Chairman of the Elections Commission of the vacancy which occurred in the membership of the 9th Parliament due to the fact that Ranjan Ramanayake ceased to be a member of Parliament in terms of the Article 66 D of the Constitution,” he said.

So Speaker @ParliamentLK announce that the seat of @RamanayakeR has fallen vacant and that Sec Gen has informed Elections Commission to take appropriate action. #SriLanka law needs to change; 4 years incarceration for ‘contempt of court’ when in most countries doesn’t even exist. pic.twitter.com/6jhq5mExEJ— Harsha de Silva (@HarshadeSilvaMP) April 7, 2021

This is the best news for this year. This man is not suitable to be in the legislature. He waste a lot of parliament time (tax payers money) talking absolute bull. Nice and Sayonara.

Ranjan at times talks nonsense but he is a genuine guy. Murderers enter parliament and the genuine guys get kicked out.

Sumanthiran is responsible for the blunder in the case. He had his own/TNA agenda.

This should go down as a Sad Day in Legislature. For fearlessly speaking the truth? Isn't Justice Denied? One Country? ??Law.

This is a political vendetta against those who have a backbone to question this governments actions.
