Decision tomorrow on Wimal’s request to Parliament

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said he will inform Parliament tomorrow on the request made by Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa for the National Freedom Front (NFF) to be recognized as an independent political party in Parliament.

Jayasuriya said party leaders will meet today and discuss the request made by Weerawansa.

He said that discussions will also be held with the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and a decision will be announced tomorrow.

The NFF had announced recently it is no more part of the UPFA and so wants to be given recognition as an independent political party in Parliament. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Ranil thinks he is too smart to divide Sinhalese, but Mahinda Rajapaksas will make use of everything to his victory. More and more people are turning against the so called ‘good governance’ government, but supporting former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

  2. If people elected members wish of Chamber ,what is that difficult form own political organization . That is not decided by Speaker or other political alliances .
    By decision Is lay of member of political line of thinking .
    The Politics of democracy is key to be Independent .

    The decisive factors are voters not the speaker of the house !!!!!!!

    The sovereignty in the hand of People . Be not try manipulated rights of Members of parliament.
    They have right the appear for political voice of people,that is democracy of capitalism .

    We want democracy must be flourished by will of the people.

  3. If a party stood for election on its own then it should be recognized as a independent party but if it stood for election along with a group of parties then it should not be recognized as an independent party.
    The reason being no party in a group is independent of the other and the group put forward one person and the voter is deprived of the choices he would have made under true competition for representation. This should be the right of the voter not the speaker or political parties in parliament.
