Two PMs, two CJs and two MPs for one electorate
With political tension running high, political parties have been holding regular news conferences and some times more than a dozen a day.
Last week, a scribe received instructions that a news conference had been organised at the Prime Minister’s Office.
His immediate response was which Prime Minister’s office. He had to call back to find out wh i c h Prime Minister they were referring to as the d e posed Prime Minister’s office also still refers to Ranil Wickremesinghe as Prime Minister.
However, this is not the first instance we have had the issue as at one time there were two Chief Justices, with a dispute over the removal of the then Chief Justice.
Old timers also recall once there were two MPs for Kalawana.
