Rebel SLPP MPs say no to no-confidence

The rebel Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) MPs, which includes former Ministers Vasudeva Nanayakkara and Wimal Weerawansa, have decided not to support the no-confidence motion against President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Nanayakkara told Daily Mirror that they had advised the main opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya not to go ahead with the no-confidence motion against President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

He said that they feel a no-confidence on the President will not be appropriate at this time. Instead, Nanayakkara says they will push for a 21st Amendment to be presented to Parliament to curtail the powers of the President.
