Joint Opposition seeking opposition leader's post will be mockery of democracy: Sumanthiran responds to Dinesh


Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian M A Sumanthiran has observed that Joint Opposition claiming the post of the opposition leader while its members hold cabinet portfolios will be a mockery of democracy.

He was addressing Parliament on Tuesday. He stated that it is the position of Tamil National Alliance that if the JO wished to be the real Opposition, its members should leave the UPFA.

He added that the Leader of the Opposition post could not be held by a person who belonged to a party that had members in the Cabinet. The UPFA Chairman, its General Secretary and over 20 members are members of the Cabinet and are part of the Executive. It would be a mockery to have yet another UPFA MP sitting as the Opposition Leader as well.
