Opposition in Sri Lankan Parliament Plans No-Confidence Motion Against Speaker

Professor G. L. Peiris, representing the joint opposition in the Sri Lankan Parliament, has announced their intention to file a no-confidence motion against the speaker. This move comes amidst concerns regarding the speaker’s conduct and the passing of the Online Safety Bill.

Expressing dissatisfaction with the Online Safety Bill, Professor Peiris stated that it did not adhere to proper legal procedures. He further criticized the speaker’s conduct, labeling it “disgraceful” and accusing him of violating the constitution and parliamentary standing orders during the passage of certain legislation.

In response to inquiries about potential action against the speaker, Professor Peiris confirmed the planned no-confidence motion. He underscored the urgency of this action, asserting that continued acceptance of the speaker’s alleged conduct would equate to “betraying the country.”
