DNA member Jayantha Ketagoda's name is to be gazetted today as the replacement for the parliament seat made vacant after DNA leader Sarath Fonseka’s imprisonment, Additional Election Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya said.

Earlier the name of Lakshman Nipunarachchi was put forward as the replacement for Sarath Fonseka but he declined to take oaths as he believed the seat rightfully belonged to DNA leader Sarath Fonseka. Jayantha Ketagoda has also made it clear that he will not accept the appointment as the seat belongs to the former army chief. (Daily Mirror online)

    What an interesting situation ! If Kategoda also refuses to accept the seat, the EC can wait for another three months and then gazette the name of the next in line in the DNA list. What happens when all names of the DNA candidates are exhausted. Maybe they will have to pass another constitution amendment with the thumping majority they have to the effect that if all candidates of a particular party refuse to take the seats once fallen vacant, the governing party has the right to fill the vacancy with one of theirs.

    Yes, but at that time i wonder what should be the government, hopefully not the current one.
