Dec 09, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the current parliament has no legitimacy to govern the country since any party that gets the majority 113 in Parliament would do so by bribing.
However, the Parliament first needs to defeat the conspiracy and the party will take the initiative and support such a move, the Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayaka said.
Speaking at a rally held in Gampaha recently, the JVP leader said next, a commission should be appointed through a proper bill to investigate those who were involved in the treasonable conspiracy and to bring them before courts.
"Then the 20th amendment to the Constitution should be debated and passed in Parliament to abolish executive Presidency. Then a general election should be held to elect a new parliament," MP Dissanayake pointed out.
The JVP meanwhile, said its MPs will not support a motion which is expected to be presented in Parliament to express confidence in UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.
Speaking at a media briefing on Saturday JVP parliamentarian Bimal Ratnayake said the motion is being brought by the United National Party (UNP) and that the JVP does not plan to get involved in the battle over the premiership or any plans to form a government.
He further said regardless of the court's decision Presidentís illegal involvement in Parliament will continue and it is clear that the only solution to the present issue is the abolishment of the executive Presidency.
