COLOMBO (News 1st) – UNP MP Ruwan Wijewardene took to his twitter account to comment on the current political situation of the country.

Wijewardene stated that the actions of President Maithripala Sirisena amount up to a constitutional coup. He further continued to say that the president has completely disregarded the constitution and the laws of the country.

“Bringing Mahinda Rajapaksa and the new government into power is illegal and against the law. Although some of their activists say that it is legal, the constitution clearly states that the president cannot remove a prime minister” he added.

Wijewardene also believes that the current situation is not favorable for the future of the country.
