Political crisis continues in Sri Lanka, claims leader of opposition – will prove majority next week


Sri Lanka Political Crisis: The political as well as economic crisis continues in Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, a senior leader of Sri Lanka’s opposition Samagi Jana Balvegaya (SJB) claimed on Saturday that his party will prove its majority in parliament next week during a no-confidence motion against the Rajapaksa family-led government. This information was given in a news in the media. President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has asked the opposition to show a majority by securing the support of 113 MPs in the 225-member parliament to form an interim government.

Claims to prove majority in Parliament next week

The Daily Mirror newspaper quoted Laxman Kirila, SJB MP and chief opposition whip, as saying that ‘everyone will see that we will have a majority next week and at the moment I will not tell how we are going to do it. “The President should resign from his post and then there should be constitutional reforms, to ensure checks and balances between the pillars of the government,” he said during the press conference. Another SJB MP, Mujibur Rahman, who was present during the meeting, said that his party will also insist on impeachment against the President. “We haven’t given up on it yet,” he said.

Economic and political crisis continues in Sri Lanka

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on Friday invited an all-party government involving all political parties represented in parliament to address the island nation’s economic crisis. The media department of the President’s Office said in a statement that “he made the offer during discussions with party leaders and representatives who are now working independently in Parliament.” However, it was not clear whether incumbent Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa (the president’s eldest brother) would resign to form an all-party government. Sri Lanka is currently going through the worst economic crisis since its independence from Britain in 1948. Significantly, meanwhile, the pressure of resignation is increasing on the Rajapaksa family and thousands of protesters have been permanently camping outside the President’s Secretariat for the last 22 days.
