(Lanka-e-News - 23.March.2018, 11.45PM) At the party leaders’ meeting on the 22nd , it was decided that the no confidence motion engineered by the Joint Opposition with the blessings of Maithri group against Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe shall be taken up for debate on April 4 th
The Parliament is to convene at 9.30 a.m. on that day and is to continue until 9.30 p.m. and the debate is to last for 12 hours, after which the voting will take place at 9.30 p.m.
The party leaders’ meeting was chaired by the speaker Karu Jayasuriya.
According to Colombo based political analysts , even though Maithri’s trumpeters like S.B. Dissanayake even until the last minute were screaming there were more than the required number of signatures for the motion , only 55 had signed it finally. Mahinda Rajapakse the Machiavellian did not sign it because he knew ahead it is going to be a flop.
The failure of the president until now to question those lackeys of his who signed the no confidence motion against the government while being within the government is proof beyond any doubt that they took that course of action with president’s blessings.
The Colombo based political analysts who say that the UNP can launch on a new journey after the defeat of the no confidence motion pointed out Maithripala Sirisena alias Sillysena had only kicked and trampled the people’s mandate of 2015 by trying to change the P.M. and sacrificing the government at the altar of his self gain and political opportunism .This therefore marks the end of the journey for already embattled Sirisena . Besides it is a confirmation that rudderless ,faceless, unscrupulous Sirisena has doubtless lost his popularity and recognition , if any he enjoyed among the masses.
Of course if Ranil loses in this no confidence motion , he will lose his prime minister post . But if the president who is the architect of the motion is defeated , it is Sirisena already dubbed Sillysena who will have to ask himself what he should do to him after having bungled everything.
