Cabinet spokesman says President will decide next step

Cabinet spokesman Mahinda Samarasinghe says President Maithripala Sirisena will decide the next step after studying the motion signed by 122 Parliamentarians expressing no-confidence on the Government.

Samarasinghe said that the President will take action in line with the Constitution.

“The President will not act against the Constitution. He will follow the law,” he said.

He said that till a new cabinet is appointed the existing cabinet will remain in office.

“Till the President issues another gazette the current Government remains,” he said.

Meanwhile, Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera said that the whole process followed by the Speaker to take a vote on the no-confidence motion was illegal.
