Govt continues sans renewal of SLFP-UNP agreement: Dinesh


MEP Leader Dinesh Gunawardena has questioned the propriety, constitutional or otherwise, of the National Government continuing in office without renewing the agreement between Sri Lanka Freedom Party and the United National Party.

He raised the issue under Standing Orders 23 (2) and pleaded the Government had exceeded the number of Cabinet Ministers stipulated in the Constitution. The National Government was formed subsequent to a Parliamentary motion in 2015. The UNP-SLFP MoU to work in a National Government expired on December 31. As per the Constitution, the number of Cabinet Ministers should be limited to only 30.

He went on that the Prime Minister should be consulted by the President prior to any ministerial appointment according to the Constitution. We would like to know whether Prime Minister was consulted over the appointment of State Ministers Shriyani Wijewickrama and Piyasena Gamage last month.
