COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Sri Lanka Freedom Party has rejected the stance taken by Speaker Karu Jayasuriya over the present political situation.

At a special press briefing, Dr. Sarath Amunugama said the speaker announcing his personal stance on the matter could be viewed as unconstitutional.

He went on to note the speaker does not have any legal right to decide who would be Prime Minister in Parliament.

This morning Speaker Karu Jayasuriya in a statement said until a new faction is capable of showing a majority in parliament, he is compelled to accept the state of parliament that existed before the change.
