Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa presided when Parliament met at 1 p.m. yesterday.
After the presentation of papers and oral questions Chief Opposition Whip John Amarathunga moved a no confidence motion against External Affairs Minister G L Peiris.
John Amarathunga (UNP): I move this Vote of no-confidence on External Affairs Minister Prof G L Peiris as he has failed to uphold and preserve the reputation and good name of this country internationally which has resulted among other things, the Secretary General of the United Nations Organization taking steps for the appointment of a Panel of Experts to advise him on the human rights violations in Sri Lanka.
