Recommendations violating Constitution - Eran

PCoI pertaining to political victimisations

Opposition political parties are banding to pursue legal and political measures to oppose recommendations of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) probing allegations pertaining to political victimisation.

The Cabinet of Ministers gave the greenlight to implement the PCoI recommendations.

A three member judge panel has been appointed in this regard. Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Eran Wickremeratne said the government’s latest attempts are violating provisions of the Constitution and the judicial process.

“If anyone has breached the Constitution or the law, we have to use the country’s judicial process.

This government is working on a politically motivated agenda and trying to disenfranchise some Members of Parliament,” he said.

He said recent talks that were held between the United National Party (UNP) and its breakaway party the SJB focused on the PCoI recommendations.Sources told the Daily News that the SJB has already reached out to minority parties to form a new coalition.“The SJB will create a broad coalition and lead it to establish the next government.

The UNP will certainly be a partner in it along with many other parties,” Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Dr. Harsha de Silva said.
