Mar 21, 2018 4:49:32 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was handed over to Parliament on Wednesday.

The no-confidence motion with 55 signatures was handed over to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya by the joint opposition.

Four Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members of Parliament had also signed the no-confidence motion.

SLFP MPs T.B Ekanayake, Nishantha Muthuhettigama, S. Punchinilame and Cader Musthan have signed the petition.

The no-confidence motion notes some concerns against the Prime Minister.

The SLFP is expected to take a decision as a party on the no-confidence motion after studying its contents.

Some United National Party (UNP) members had said earlier they will support a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister.

However the UNP, as a party has decided it will not support the no-confidence motion. (Colombo Gazette)
