UNP moots ‘No faith’ motion against PM
The United National Party (UNP) is mooting a No Confidence motion against beleaguered Prime Minister, D.M. Jayaratne, over the allegations that his office had issued a letter to secure a duty waiver for a container, which had South Asia’s largest heroin haul concealed within.
UNP MP Sujeewa Senasinghe said he would propose a No Confidence motion against the Prime Minister, during the next Parliament group meeting of the UNP.
He said the UNP expects the support of other political parties for the resolution.
Parliamentarian Rosy Senanayake, at a recent media conference, also called for stern action against the Prime Minister.
Ratnapura UNP MP, Thalatha Athukorala, said that the Prime Minister should resign from the post, in order to allow an independent investigation into allegations levelled against him.
