UNP spokesman Harin Fer­nando yes­ter­day al­leged that the dis­so­lu­tion of Par­lia­ment was a vi­o­la­tion of the Constitution.

“This was a case of ig­nor­ing the Constitution and it is a ne­ces­sity to scarp the ‘Demo­cratic’ part of the word­ing from the ti­tle of the coun­try ‘ Demo­cratic So­cial­ist Repub­lic of Sri Lanka” as the democ­racy of this coun­try has been buried,” he said.

“The UNP can now think anew and fight to re­store democ­racy with a new lead­er­ship which can make an im­pact on the peo­ple,” he added.

TNA NP M A Su­man­thi­ran said the move was un­con­sti­tu­tional as it is the Par­lia­ment which has the power to ask Pres­i­dent to dis­solve it un­der the 19th amend­ment of the constitution be­fore the com­ple­tion of four years and six months from the first meet­ing of this Par­lia­ment.
