President’s stance on appointing Ranil as PM is humiliation to the House: Lakshman Kiriella

Lakshman Kiriella 700 02

United National Party senior member Lakshman Kiriella has charged that President Maithripala Sirisena’s statement that he would not appoint MP Ranil Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister even if all 225 MPs made a request to that effect was a humiliation to Parliament.

He was speaking in Parliament at the commencement of the sittings on Wednesday. He stated that the Executive should be accountable to the legislature. The judiciary with its interim order on December 3 had justified Speaker Karu Jayasuriya’s ruling that there was no PM or Cabinet in the country.

He further said: "We congratulate the Speaker on this achievement. Today, the country’s Constitution is being violated. The President even did not heed what the judiciary said. For the first time, the country does not have a valid PM or Cabinet. In such a situation, we admire the Speaker’s efforts to maintain stability in the country."
