Mahinda Rajapaksa Opposition Leader 700 01

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has reaffirmed former President Mahinda Rajapakse as the Opposition Leader. This was confirmed in the House on Tuesday.

As Speaker Jayasuriya is currently attending the Conference of Speakers of Commonwealth Countries in Malta, Deputy Speaker read out the Speaker’s announcements to the House at the commencement of sittings.

In his announcement Speaker said: "Whether the seat of an MP has been vacated or not as per the law or the Constitution and whether any MP has lost or resigned from his party membership are not matters coming under the purview of the Speaker to decide as per the Constitution as well as Standing Orders of Parliament. Those matters must be decided by the courts of law."

The Speaker further stated that he had received a letter from UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera on 19 Dec, 2018 informing him that the UPFA nominated former President Rajapaksa’s name for the post of the Opposition Leader.
