A decision has been taken by the government in spite of the objections from the opposition to hold a Parliamentary debate tomorrow (7th) to form a national government in a bid to increase the number of ministers, state ministers and deputy ministers points out the Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayaka MP and adds that all must unite to defeat this move.
Speaking further Mr Dissanayaka said, “The meeting of the political parties in Parliament was held at 2.30 p.m. today. Despite all other parties opposed, the ruling party decided to present the proposal regarding the national government to Parliament tomorrow.
This proposal is brought to Parliament today as Ranil Wickremesinghe is looking for loopholes in the Constitution to increase ministerial portfolios to waste and steal people’s money and to enjoy various privileges.
The proposal will be presented to increase the number of ministerial positions from 30 to 48 and state and deputy ministerial posts from 40 to 45. Only one other party, which is the SLMC, will join the ruling party to form the national government. SLMC is already a partner in the government. This attempt of Ranil Wickremesinghe to look for loopholes in the Constitution to get the number of ministerial portfolios increased should be defeated.
The people should defeat this attempt to increase ministerial posts to rob people’s money and enjoy various privileges.
Also, the President has a responsibility at this moment not to allow the sordid move to be carried out. It is the President who appoints ministers. He should not allow the move by Ranil Wickremesinghe to take advantage of any loopholes in the Constitution.
We propose that all those who honour the Constitution and oppose stealing and wasting public funds should unite to defeat the buffoonery proposal of the ruling party.”
