SpeakerKaruJayasuriya700 01
Speaker Karu Jaysasuriya has observed that the order made by the Court Appeal has exonerated him from all the allegations made against him.

He also hailed the judiciary for its landmark order.

In his press release, Jayasuriya stated that the last few parliamentary proceedings have been conducted according to democratic standards upon consultation with constitutional experts. His actions have not been done with the intention of either strengthening or weakening any entity. Instead, his course of action during the recent past has been based on a matter of policy.

He added that those who were unsatisfied with his conduct should bring forth a no-confidence motion against him instead of slinging accusations on various occasions.

He further stated that the country's political, social and economic well being has deteriorated during the recent past.

He appealed to all party leaders to join hands to restore the situation of the parliament back to normalcy following the next parliamentary session.
