House Leader and Minister Dinesh Gunawardane said today they had decided to boycott parliamentary sessions until Speaker Karu Jayasuriya acted according to the Constitution, Standing Orders and parliamentary tradition.

He told a news conference held at the parliament complex that they would take a decision on attending parliament sessions after considering the order paper for the next day.

"We walked out of Chambers in protest of the Speaker's actions," Mr. Gunawardena said.

He said even minority governments had been given a majority in the Committee of Selections in the past and neither had a vote been taken on such a committee in parliamentary tradition.

"The vote was taken on a request made by Anura Kumara Dissanayake and Lakshman Kiriella," Mr. Gunawardena said.

He said the Speaker would be able to act illegally only till the Supreme Court gave its verdict on December 7.

He said the Speaker was convening parliament disregarding the Parliament calendar and without printing the order paper given by the government. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Samson Friday, 23 November 2018 07:23 PM

    Illegal govt can bring a no confidence on the speaker and change the speaker, what is the problem?

    samboo Friday, 23 November 2018 07:27 PM

    Speaker has duly passed the no Confidence motion and duly gazetted You are no more government

    Niyas Friday, 23 November 2018 07:36 PM

    First you set the example by honouring the constitution. 225 - 121= 104 - speaker =103 That is the maximum you have

    sach Friday, 23 November 2018 10:17 PM

    speaker is NOT from the government side idiot. UNPers are so stupid.

    Wipula Friday, 23 November 2018 07:38 PM

    If you do not accept the Speaker , you can bring a NCM against him

    Hiran Friday, 23 November 2018 07:42 PM

    Age limited , no criminal record and at least degree . No fake degree

    Dan Jay Friday, 23 November 2018 07:54 PM

    No need of a majority, no need of democracy, they will do what they want by hook or (by) crook. It is a Dictatorship. We are shattered to our bones with a prospect of living under a dictatorship.

    ala Friday, 23 November 2018 07:55 PM

    Throw this rascal out of parliament. He's a disgrace to democracy.

    Moiez Friday, 23 November 2018 07:57 PM

    ahamed Friday, 23 November 2018 08:50 PM

    sach Friday, 23 November 2018 10:18 PM

    This parliament cannot go on. Please dissolve it and go for elections. Why are these white slaves (UNP) afraid of going for elections?

    Lord Wolfstein Saturday, 24 November 2018 01:19 PM

    It seems like you lost contact with reality. Democracy probably does not appear in your vocabulary. Only crooks or brainless people support a criminal dictator and his henchmen.

    MODA BURUWA Saturday, 24 November 2018 03:27 PM

    SACH - sounds to be RAJA horu SLAVE . WAKE UP MAN .

    Gayan Saturday, 24 November 2018 11:10 PM

    Those who are afraid of elections are hiding behind a phony parliment majority. They are afraid of people's verdict of their performance for last 3 years.

    eranga Friday, 23 November 2018 10:20 PM

    These old puppets must be banned from entering to parliament, anyway!

    SAN SILVA Friday, 23 November 2018 10:58 PM

    This black sheep is an utter disgrace to his clan.Mr.Robert and Mr.Philip must be turning in their graves

    Upul Saturday, 24 November 2018 12:43 AM

    It's better if you retire than boycotting. Your time has already passed for the retirement.

    Puppy Saturday, 24 November 2018 05:31 PM

    Get lost Dinesh. Seriously, you are talking about what is legal and ethical? Take Bandula with you too and get lost. Shame to be one of his students.Practice what you preach!

    Dasa Saturday, 24 November 2018 02:58 PM

    We were promised the Miracle of Asia and now we have been given the laughing stock of Asia in a silver plate. Thanks to the common candidate and the political nut jobs like you.People of this country cannot afford jokers anymore. The more time we spend laughing at them more time we lose getting this country back on track.

    Sils Saturday, 24 November 2018 04:00 PM

    Normally a government does not walk out from parliament. It's only the opposition which comprises of a minority that walks out. Thank you for showing us that you are the minority.

    para Saturday, 24 November 2018 04:12 PM

    Donkey sitting on a looted throne

    SL Putta Saturday, 24 November 2018 05:30 PM

    You all well known thieves try to bring a Loose motion, sorry No confident motion against Hon Speaker ! At least it's good to boycott.. keep doing.. we can save a major amount of parliament expenses for your bloddy attendance.

    ali Saturday, 24 November 2018 05:40 PM

    First time to hear a government to boycott parliament

    Jaya Saturday, 24 November 2018 05:53 PM

    hooooooooooo

    Hubert Saturday, 24 November 2018 06:13 PM

    Must be having laryngitis for shouting like a crook

    Sambo Saturday, 24 November 2018 06:13 PM

    That's a very good excuse fir you thugs to stay away from parliament. If the speaker is unfit hold a referendum and put him out. You jerks have no courage to face a vote of no confidence and now bring lame excuses to cover your shame.

    smn Saturday, 24 November 2018 09:38 PM

    Better you give up politics now.

    SN Saturday, 24 November 2018 09:49 PM

    Can you guys first of all address the public if you have a majority or not?This is a disgrace by you as well as the media who are hiding the facts and hoodwinking the mass of the people and now publicizing facts.Might as well without appointing a rouge government, Pres should have once and for all dissolved parliament and called for elections. This plans was certainly making sure that Prez get a 2nd term hook or by crook.

    vms Saturday, 24 November 2018 10:07 PM

    when idiots run the government what you expect.

    Angoda Bakka Saturday, 24 November 2018 11:10 PM

    The real reason to boycott parliament is that you fear losing a vote, especially NCM, because you don't have the majority. Whenever the Speaker announces a VOTE, you shit in your pants.
