Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FRONT PAGE - BY KELUM BAN­DARA

In­ter­na­tional Trade Min­is­ter Bandula Gu­nawar­dane yes­ter­day jus­ti­fied the dis­so­lu­tion of Par­lia­ment say­ing it was the only op­tion left for the Pres­i­dent to avert the coun­try from slid­ing to­wards an­ar­chy.

Com­ment­ing on the dis­so­lu­tion of the House, he said sacked Prime Min­is­ter Ranil Wick­remesinghe re­fused to leave Tem­ple Trees and Speaker Karu Jaya­suriya started act­ing in a par­ti­san man­ner even chal­leng­ing the Pres­i­dent’s or­der.

There­fore, he said the Pres­i­dent only had to dis­solve Par­lia­ment for the par­ties con­cerned to go be­fore the peo­ple.
