Unwarranted foreign intervention refuted

Former Sri Lankan Representative to the U.N., Thamara Kuganayagam says Ranil Wickremesinghe is making an attempt for a foreign intervention to the island nation that is harmful.

She was speaking at a media briefing held in Colombo.

President’s Counsel Manohara de Silva stated that the misinterpretation of the 19th amendment to the constitution is illegal and merely intended a harmful foreign intervention. He highlighted that the attempt of Ranil Wickremesinghe is totally misleading and unsuccessful.

According to the constitution, the executive powers and the constitutional council are separate clearly. Manohara de Silva explained that the Executive President is capable to remove and appoint a Prime Minister in his consent. He pointed out that the constitutional council is only empowered to check the popularity of a Premier and it is not its mandate to appoint or remove.
