* Main opposition has no plan to bring a no-confidence motion against Sri Lanka's Justice Minister
Sat, Jun 7, 2014, 09:40 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says it is not planning to bring a no-confidence motion against the Minister of Justice Rauf Hakeem.

UNP MP Ajith P. Perera declined media reports that said the UNP was planning to bring a no-confidence motion against the Minister of Justice over the problems in the Law College.

Local media reports said that a group of backbenchers of the government were also conniving with the UNP to bring the no-confidence motion against the Justice Minister who is the leader of Sri Lanka Muslim Congress.

MP Ajith P. Perera admitted that there was a discussion about the issue but the party had not taken such a decision.

A controversy has risen regarding the decision taken by the Council of Legal Education of Sri Lanka to lower the upper age limit to take the entrance examination to the Law College to 30 years from this year. However, the authorities say they have not taken any measures in this regard yet.
