It would be treacherous

Not bringing in No Confidence Motion against Ranil says GL:

UPFA parliamentarian and former External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris said yesterday that it would be a treacherous act if they didn't bring in a No Confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe for appointing a Singaporean national as the Central Bank Governor authorising him to sign Sri Lanka's currency notes.

Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran had renounced all loyalty to this country. He has sworn allegiance to the Republic of Singapore. This is the gentleman who had signed Sri Lanka's currency notes. Despite the opposition of other Cabinet Ministers, the Prime Minister appointed Mahendran as the Central Bank Governor.

Therefore, it is our duty to bring in a No Confidence motion against the Prime Minister, Prof. Peiris told a media briefing at his residence in Colombo yesterday.

"Prof. Peiris queried that if they don't bring in a No Confidence motion against the Premier in these circumstances, when could a No Confidence motion be brought? This No Confidence motion has nothing to do with the 20th Amendment to the Constitution and we would extend our fullest support to pass it.

The No Confidence motion to be moved against the incumbent Prime Minister would not be a problem whatsoever to pass this piece of legislation, because it would be much easier to pass the 20th Amendment under a majority UPFA government and a new Prime Minister could be appointed after passing the No Confidence motion." He said that they had already received over 85 signatures for the No Confidence motion against the Prime Minister.
