The Opposition on June 24 alleged that certain persons are exerting pressure on the president to dissolve Parliament before the motion of no-confidence and the interim reports of COPE are issued.

UPFA MP Dullas Alahapperuma made these allegations speaking at a press conference at the parliamentary complex.

The MP added that today or tomorrow would most probably be the final day of this parliament and that the decision to make it a reality would be made either today or tomorrow. He said the challenge now faced is the pressure exerted on the president to dissolve Parliament.

He said this is most disgraceful incident in Sri Lankan history, and that everyone is aware that the motion of no-confidence on the Prime Minister and that the reports compiled by COPE are harmful for the well-being of certain individuals. He said that there is a need to defeat the attempt that is being made to dissolve parliament in fear of the motion of no-confidence and the interim reports of COPE.

He went on to note that if there are matters of sensitive nature raised by the minority parties, those matters need to be listened to and fulfilled. He added that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and the United People’s Freedom Alliance are aspiring to assist in that and if that cannot transpire, the only alternative is to look in to the stability and dissolve parliament.
