* JVP to support any motion brought to defeat 'Mahinda-Maithri political conspiracy'
Thu, Nov 8, 2018, 09:33 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna says the party will support any motion brought to defeat the political conspiracy hatched by the President Maithripala Sirisena and former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The JVP on Wednesday said the conspiracy being carried out by Mahinda Rajapaksa and Maithripala Sirisena offering positions, privileges and black money should be defeated.

"As such the JVP would act to defeat this political conspiracy at the very first instance it gets," the Leader of the JVP MP Anura Dissanayaka said.

The JVP leader said this political conspiracy should be defeated within Parliament as well as outside it and therefore, the JVP has organized seminars in 4 main towns in the island on the 9th November.

On the 12th November, the party has organized a 'Forum' in Colombo where a broad discussion with the participation of representatives of mass organizations, professionals and intellectuals would be held.

The JVP also asked the Speaker to convene Parliament immediately since a majority of Parliamentarians have requested the Speaker to do so.

The party asked the Speaker not to accept the proroguing of Parliament since the Speaker had not been informed regarding proroguing Parliament. Also, the Gazette has been issued without informing the Speaker definitely about the reconvening of Parliament.

The Marxist party noted that the Speaker has released a special statement saying that he would not recognize new changes and he recognizes the earlier positions in parliament until the Parliament is convened.

"The JVP considers this statement of the Speaker as a very strong decision and thank the Speaker for taking such a decision," MP Dissanayake said.

The JVP said it would support if a vote is taken against the positions that have been appointed violating the Constitution. Also, if the new government presents budget proposals or any such bill the party would take measures to defeat it, the JVP Leader said.
