Ensure Ranil’s privileges, Karu tells Maithri

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya urges president Maithripala Sirisena to ensure the privileges of UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe until such time a person commanding the majority support in parliament emerges.

Writing to the president, Jayasuriya says he has already received a letter from the UNP in that regard.

The speaker notes that he makes the request from a government that has been mandated for democracy and good governance.

He also refers to the threats and interferences at state media institutions and says such incidents could breach peace and cause harm to the country internationally.

The speaker adds the prorogation of parliament until November 16 could be bad for the country and reminds the president that such a decision should have been taken with his knowledge.
