Parliament remains in limbo

2 November 2018

  • MR’s statement of reconvening P’ment on Monday contradicted [b]by others[/b]

  • Deputy Speaker confirms no P’ment on 5 Nov.

  • Uncertainty over date continues

  • Speaker to meet party leaders today

  • UNP says Speaker did not recognise MR as PM during meeting with President

  • No decision on giving MR Prime Minister’s Chair


In the absence of an official announcement by President Maithripala Sirisena regarding reconvening of Parliament, confusion reigned with different dates being quoted by different politicians depending on their political affiliations.

The first announcement of a possible change in the date to reconvene Parliament was made by Mahinda Rajapaksa, the new Prime Minister appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena, during a discussion with university professors last morning. Rajapaksa, quoting Sirisena, confirmed that Parliament will be reconvened on 5 November.

“I believe Parliament will be reconvened on 5 November. The President has decided to reconvene the Parliament on 5 November,” said Rajapaksa, who ascended to the post of Prime Minister following the sacking of sitting Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe during the meeting.

However, this was later revised to be either 5 or 7 November. The decision came after Speaker Karu Jayasuriya on Wednesday met the President with a renewed call to reconvene Parliament.

The United National Party (UNP), led by ousted Premier Wickremesinghe, considered the announcement a victory for democracy.

“We thank Speaker Karu Jayasuriya for his efforts to get Parliament convened before 16 November. We can say that we have won round one in our battle for democracy in this country,” UNP MP Ajith P. Perera stated at a media briefing held at Temple Trees last morning.

However, as the day progressed, uncertainty set in with UNP politicians saying Parliament will be reconvened either on 5 or 7 November. By evening, it was unclear if the date had been advanced at all.

Deputy Speaker Thilanga Sumathipala told Daily FT that Parliament will not convene on 5 November, but failed to clarify when the revised date would be. The Speaker’s Office, too, said that they are yet to receive any official confirmation on the date being revised.

Sirisena stands strong








Tuesday, 6 November 2018

  • Says will not back down from stance, denies appointment of new PM illegal

  • Justifies appointment of MR, says it was only option after Karu and Sajith turned him down

  • Believes he has 113 MPs to hold Parliament

  • Slams UNP governance, insists Ranil made unpopular and individual decisions






President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday stood by his Prime Minister, insisting that he had the 113 MPs needed to hold Parliament and defended the move as a last ditch effort coming after he had offered the position to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya and UNP MP Sajith Premadasa. 

Thousands of supporters flocked to show support to President Maithripala Sirisena’s controversial move to appoint President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s as Prime Minister on Monday. As traffic police cordoned off parts of Parliament Road to facilitate the rally with tight security, busloads of Rajapaksa loyalists gathered at the Parliament Roundabout despite continuous rain to show support to the newly formed union.

The rally, named ‘Ratama Rakina Jana Mahimaya’, organised to show the strength of the Mahinda camp as the faceoff between the two Prime Ministers intensified, was participated by a majority of the higher echelons of United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), with majority airtime being dominated by the members of the latter.

Getting on the same stage together, four years after bitter rivalries began in the later part of 2014, both Sirisena and Rajapaksa expressed ‘happiness’ of being back in the same camp after ‘brief animosity’.

The President said he was determined not to be deterred by any challenge and vowed to not back down from the steps he had taken to appoint former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister, claiming the appointment and the sacking of sitting Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe which preceded it were both legal and constitutional and was done following consultation with legal experts.

“I will not take my steps back, despite challenges. Let’s protect and build our country together,” Sirisena told the cheering crowds soaking in the rain. 

Speaking at the rally held in gloomy weather, the President told thousands of Rajapaksa supporters that he offered the job to both Speaker Karu Jayasuriya and UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa before settling for Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“When the Speaker asked me, ‘did you not have any other alternative, except for Mahinda Rajapaksa?’ I responded, ‘Speaker don’t you remember? I gave you that solution. After the Local Government election, then during the No-Confidence Motion taken in the Parliament against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, I asked you to take over the Premiership.”

Outlining his fallout with Premier Wickremesinghe, Sirisena said that the ideological and cultural differences were irreconcilable and needed change.

“I was not just changing two individuals. The change was from a vision that was not according to our culture and norms, that didn’t suit us, which was formed under foreign agenda, to a vision which upholds local culture and values,” he said.

Alleging that the UNP’s outward-looking economic policies, which included negotiations on free trade agreements, were undermining the independence of the country, Sirisena also insisted he was not ready to work according to foreign agendas. He also said that during the last three-and-a-half years had suppressed the working people of the country through Ranil Wickremesinghe’s economic policies that included tax increases and inconsistent policymaking.

He charged that Ranil Wickremesinghe had created a situation where only the elite class of the country could live well while the rest of the country was pushed into more constrained economic circumstances.

The President pointed out that Wickremesinghe had followed an extremely limited policy in governing and forgot the local culture to solve the problems that prevailed in the country. The President charged that Wickremesinghe, together with a few close associates, made critical decisions, leaving out Sirisena and other senior members of Cabinet. 

He pointed out that he had taken the decision to appoint Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister by himself. “I took the decision to appoint Mahinda Rajapaksa, not just according to my fancy, but after seeking expert opinion, seeking legal advice, and after it was deemed unconstitutional.”

He asserted that he and Rajapaksa had to free the people from the suppressive economic policies of Ranil Wickremesinghe.

“We can see that over 80% of the people of this country are with us on the decision we took. We ask Ranil Wickremesinghe to let the people decide what they want.”

Sirisena said that he and Mahinda Rajapaksa would solve the problems of the people from North and East of the country for a better future.

“Those who have been in the Cabinet know how difficult it was to commence the project to build 50,000 houses for the North. Ministers of the Cabinet have been fighting to get the ownership of the project.”

He also went on to say that he and Mahinda Rajapaksa would work to strengthen the friendship with India while accusing Ranil Wickremesinghe and his Ministers of trying to break the relationship with India.

Speaking at the rally, Mahinda Rajapaksa said he appreciated the President’s decision to join them.

“This is a very serious decision. I told him that if I was him, I wouldn’t have done it. I would have managed.”

He pointed out that the separation was temporary and they had known each other since the 1970s. The taxes imposed by the coalition Government had led to increases in the cost of living, which was one of the biggest challenges people had to bear, he added.

“I went to the Finance Ministry and checked if we could remove the taxes. It was possible and we have done so. They could have done the same.”

Rajapaksa said Wickremesinghe did not care about the well-being of the citizens of the country. “We have come together to work towards the prosperity of the country.” 

He also urged the minorities to work with him to form a Government for the future.

Several theories have culminated as a result of the removal of RW & his butterflies. But its food for thought that this was not the first instance a President could not work with RW as premier. Lets recall in 2004 CBK dissolved RW's govt prematurely and ended his term, it had been repeated again by another SLFP President MS, both in accordance with the constitution. Two SLFP Presidents have discarded RW, is it b'cos of him or his butterflies or both????

No one can separate us now: MR-2018-11-06


In their first ever major public rally after the new government was formed, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said no one could separate his alliance with President Maithripala Sirisena.
Mr. Rajapaksa said they have come to an agreement not to allow any tattle-tale to separate them. “No one can set us against each other now,” he told the Rata Surakina Jana Mahimaya rally.
He said he is committed to work with the President to establish democracy in the country, to salvage it from the alienation and to develop it including the North and East.
He also invited political parties which represent minority groups to join the new government to uplift the people’s livelihood irrespective of ethnic or other differences.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister said the decision taken by the President to appoint him as the Prime Minister was a serious one. “Parting ways temporarily is not a strange phenomena in politics. We have joined today for the sake of the country, to prevent further alienation of it so that we can create a better country for future generations of Sri Lanka,” he said.
He said he was able to reduce taxes and also fuel prices in a day after assuming duties as the Finance Minister. “If I could have done it, that means they (previous government) could have also done it. However, they were focused on their well being instead of the people,” Mr. Rajapaksa said.

US & EU are focused here not out of love and affection towards us but to have a govt that is willing to carry out their agenda. Japan of course is influenced by US at the moment but according to situation they change their stance as they don't like to see their ambitions here going into deep freezer.

'President says no to Ranil'
2018-11-09


President Maithripala Sirisena reportedly told the TNA parliamentary group yesterday that he would not reappoint UNP leader Ranil

Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister even if his party secured a majority in Parliament.

He met with the TNA delegation on Wednesday and discussed the current political situation. He reportedly asked the TNA to abstain from the vote of no confidence if it were moved.

However, the TNA said it had taken a decision to vote against the appointment of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister. In response, the President is reported to have said that he will not reappoint Mr. Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the President assured the parliamentary of his UPFA on Wednesday evening that he would, for sure, secure the required majority to form a stable administration, and therefore no one in the party should worry about it.

Why there is a need of re-appointing when Speaker recognized RW as the priminister up to date.

The constitution allows president to appoint a person as pri-minister only when the proposed person commands majority means there should be majority vote count and given the position afterwards.

Whats happening now is other way around. My3 and MR are having honeymoon before marriage and children too. We have become joke of the international community. Thanks to one Idiot.

Let me explain you in very simple manner. A family in a village having a father who waste money for drinks and ladies also he borrows money from village poli mudalali to have his extravagance. Poli mudalali gives loans for about 8% per annum. The most possible scenario is your family and lands will be oneday owned by poli mudali.

Also there is a bank in the village whose manage gives loans for a purpose at about 1% to 4%, and he checks in the conduct of the borrower before issuing of loans and attach conditions to safeguard the interests.


The China is the poli mudalali and USA/Japan / IMF is the bank.

Your position is correct. Subsequently in case the vote on account is defeated it will lead to dissolution of parliament by the President and in my opinion it will be good b'cos UNPs popularity can be exposed at a General Election. MR+MS can form a strong stable govt with absolute majority.

Sri Lanka in civilizational crisis amid constitutional violations

Sri Lanka's constitution has been violated plunging the country into a political crisis two weeks ago and more violations are on the way, a top political scientist and constitutional expert has warned.


"I believe the country is not just in a political crisis, but is fast moving towards a crisis in civilization," Emeritus Professor at Colombo University Jayadeva Uyangoda said.

"What did citizens see on October 26? A portion of the political class who have pledged to uphold the country's highest law, the constitution, breaking it without thought," 

President Maithripala Sirisena ousted his coalition ally Ranil Wickremesinghe from the Prime Minister post, and planted ex-President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Premier, in a controversial move which as been described as a coup by critics.

Speaking at the Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero Memorial Lecture, Uyangoda said that the ministers taking up new offices now should amend their oaths.

"They should say something new like, 'I take oaths to break the constitution and use political power illegally and immorally for personal benefit'," Uyangoda said.

"The political darkness is rapidly approaching us again," he said.

He said a politician who came into power with popular vote to reform the system is now authoring the new darkness.

"The political class now considers political corruption as a key and legitimate part of establishing and ousting governments."

A number of legislators crossed over to take positions in Rajapaksa's new cabinet.

Allegations have been levelled that this is being done for huge sums of money.

"Political corruption is now being linked to democracy," Uyangoda said.

"Politicans are attempting to create a new philosophy that although corruption can survive without democracy, democracy cannot surive without political corruption," he said.

He said that so-called law experts are attempting to deceive the public by saying the recent unconstitutional act is constitutional.

"We're now in a post-democratic era where the consittuion has been violated," Uyangoda said.

"We haven't understood the implications yet."

"When there is public fallout with political violence, extreme violations of human rights and bloodbaths, we will get a new understanding of political uncertainty," he said.

Uyangoda was also critical of the coalition government which was in power from 2015 to October 26, 2018.

He said the duty of the coalition government was to rebuild public trust in government, after it had broken earlier.

"From mid-2015 to October 26, the government had given little effort to rebuilding public trust."

"Even the coalition government leaders engaged in economic corruption, making it a part of politics," he said.

The country is not faced with a constitutional crisis at all as reported by some quarters. The million dollar question is if so, why didn't the UNP move Supreme Court soon after the dismissal of RW???
However, it is reported finally they have decided to go for SC's interpretation on Monday (12th). So, let's wait till then.
As to the foreign outflow, this is not the first time they have done so. When economic & political stability returns they come back. The CSE remained sluggish for the past nearly 4 years while not a butterfly was concerned about it, now what?????
Supreme Court's ruling will be final & binding & it will not take long b'cos the interpretation is straight forward and heavily weighs in favor of the President.
All what i know is that 'DIASPORA' is in crisis!

Parliament is supreme than Supreme Court. Parliament creates the legislations or Bills and that is becomes Law.

Court or Supreme Court only follow the Law created by parliament and rule based on the law. Supreme Court has not the capacity to create legislation that is becomes Law.

But here at Kolanawa Law is created by………….CCTV camera footage shows how

That's the reason i have stated the SC will give its interpretation. Interpretation is not making law and the issue here is with interpretation. SC's ruling will be based on its interpretation of the provisions in the constitution that President has relied upon to dissolve parliament.
CCTV footage reveals the truth, its good.

I am not talking about making Law at Supreme Court, Talking about Parliament supremacy over Supreme Court and precedent case also there, where SLFP Government’s speaker declared parliament supremacy over Supreme Court. They can only get the interpretation/ clarification form Supreme Court because most of the parliamentarians are below the level of education.
If the president wants to sack the government, he has to ask the simple 113 member majority of prime Minister’s Government at Parliament / No confidence motion or he has to penalize / impeach the prime minister’s government at Supreme Court as a traitor or other means.

Constitution is the supreme law of the land and if President had exercised powers vested in him in accordance with the constitution and if it concurs with the SC's interpretation the matter ends.

The issue in the case cited as precedence:

“The Hon Speaker informed the Committee that, in terms of the provisions of the Article 121(1) of the Constitution, when a petition is filed against a Bill in the Supreme Court, a copy thereof shall at the same time be delivered to the Speaker. 

However, such
petition filed against the Bill entitled ‘Divineguma’, was not delivered to the Speaker in the manner prescribed in the said Constitutional provisions. The Hon Speaker invited the members of the Committee to share their views in this regard. 

After long deliberations, the Committee was of the view that Parliamentary supremacy and the authority of the Speaker as envisaged in the Constitution should be recognized and given effect to by all other arms of authority

The dissolution of parliament gives UNP a golden opportunity to record a landslide victory and establish a clear majority in parliament rather than having a hung parliament with a slim majority. I am wondering why UNP does not want to make use of this golden opportunity!

Don't be carried away by the 'jingbang' that had filed petitions against the dissolution.The number of petitions is not the deciding factor. Hoole is influenced by the green party and he is not for MR. President is going to outsmart all and emerge victorious. See my prediction!

Sri Lanka court to resume hearing Tuesday on challenge to suspension of parliament-Nov 12, 2018 
Supporters of Sri Lanka's fired prime minister and a top election official on Monday challenged in court the president's sacking of parliament, upping the ante in a political crisis that has sparked international alarm.

President Maithripala Sirisena late Friday called snap elections and dissolved the legislature, two weeks after sacking the prime minister and installing the divisive Mahinda Rajapakse in his place.

The United States has led a chorus of international concern over events in the strategically important Indian Ocean island nation of 21 million people.

Three political parties holding an absolute majority in parliament and Ratnajeevan Hoole, an election commissioner and one of three officials tasked with conducting polls, on Monday asked the Supreme Court to declare the president's actions illegal.

The court, which heard preliminary submissions, has adjourned until Tuesday.

In the five-page petition, Hoole said Sirisena broke the law in calling the snap elections for January 5 after a string of unconstitutional moves since October 26 when he fired Ranil Wickremesinghe, the prime minister.

Wickremesinghe's United National Party (UNP), the main opposition Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and the leftist JVP, or People's Liberation Front challenged Sirisena's action in the court.

TNA spokesman M. A. Sumanthiran said the Supreme Court agreed to take up the petitions immediately considering the importance of the issue.

"We are also asking for an interim order" for an injunction against preparations for the election, which would be two years ahead of schedule, Sumanthiran said.

Several petitioners also asked that parliament be restored until the court has ruled on their plea.

Court officials said Chief Justice Nalin Perera and two other judges decided to fast-track the hearings.

Sarath Amunugama, appointed foreign minister by Sirisena, told Colombo-based diplomats Monday that he expected a verdict within five days.

Legal experts say the dissolved parliament would have to be restored if the Supreme Court holds with the petitioners. If not, the January 5 election will have to go ahead.

Independent election monitors have also questioned the legality of the snap poll announced by Sirisena.

- Civil unrest fears -

Wickremesinghe remains holed up in the prime minister's official residence, and both he and Rajapakse are attempting to run parallel administrations.

On Sunday night, speaker Karu Jayasuriya urged civil servants to defy Sirisena's "illegal orders".

But later Sirisena defended his actions, saying violence among rival MPs could have led to "civil unrest" across Sri Lanka if the legislature had met as scheduled this week.

"Had I allowed the parliament to meet on November 14, there would have been violence in the House and it could have spread to our villages and towns," Sirisena said in a televised address.
"I acted to prevent civil unrest."
Wickremesinghe rejected this outright, saying Sirisena had "brushed aside the constitution" in sacking the legislature.

"He has pushed the country into an unprecedented mess, destroyed its image and damaged international confidence in the country," he said in a statement.
Sirisena's rivals maintain that he had no constitutional power to sack the assembly before it completed four-and-a-half years of its five-year term that ends in August 2020.

Only China has recognised the appointment of Rajapakse, who during his decade as president until 2015 relied heavily on Beijing for diplomatic and financial support as the West shunned him.
While in power Rajapakse ended Sri Lanka's four-decade civil war by crushing the separatist Tamil Tigers. But 40,000 ethnic Tamils were allegedly massacred in the process. 

Seventeen journalists and media workers were killed during his time in power, and Rajapakse and his family have been accused of using his period in office to line their pockets through corruption.
Monday's meeting of diplomats called by Amunugama was boycotted by several Western diplomats while others sent low-level representatives, diplomatic sources said.
