Former Speaker of Parliament Karu Jayasuriya has refuted rumours surrounding the reconvening of Parliament.
Jayasuriya said via Twitter that rumours that he would reconvene the Parliament unilaterally are false.
He further said while fighting COVID-19, Sri Lanka does not want another Constitutional crisis.
All efforts must be taken by the Executive to avert a crisis, he said.
In a dispute, I am bound to uphold the decision made by the Judiciary, Karu Jayasuriya added. (Colombo Gazette)
