Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Euro­pean Union and like-minded coun­tries said in a state­ment yes­ter­day that it was es­sen­tial to al­low Par­lia­ment to demon­strate its con­fi­dence by vot­ing im­me­di­ately when re­con­vened, so as to re­solve the se­ri­ous un­cer­tain­ties cur­rently fac­ing the coun­try.

“The Am­bas­sadors of the Euro­pean Union, France, Ger­many, Italy, Nether­lands, Ro­ma­nia, the High Com­mis­sioner of the United King­dom, as well as the Am­bas­sadors of Nor­way and Switzer­land take note of the sum­mon­ing of Par­lia­ment as in­di­cated in the Gazette.

We con­sider it es­sen­tial that Par­lia­ment be al­lowed to demon­strate its con­fi­dence by vot­ing im­me­di­ately when re­con­vened

“We con­sider it es­sen­tial that Par­lia­ment be al­lowed to demon­strate its con­fi­dence by vot­ing im­me­di­ately when re­con­vened, in or­der to re­solve the se­ri­ous un­cer­tain­ties cur­rently fac­ing the coun­try. Any fur­ther de­lay could dam­age Sri Lanka’s in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion and de­ter in­vestors. Re­spect by all stake­hold­ers for the pro­vi­sions of the Constitution will be im­por­tant to main­tain the con­fi­dence of the Sri Lankan peo­ple in demo­cratic gov­er­nance and the rule of law,” The Del­e­ga­tion of the Euro­pean Union said in a state­ment yes­ter­day.
