‪”I have the majority in parliament”-Mahinda Rajapaksa tells Maha Nayake Thero

“I have the majority in parliament,” SriLanka’s newly installed Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has told Maha Nayake Thero today.

Reading the relevant section of the Constitution to clarify appointment by President Maithripala Sirirsena, he explained that it was within the law and will prove his majority in parliament.

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena suspended parliament Saturday to forestall a challenge against his surprise ouster of the prime minister, deepening a sudden swell of political turmoil in the island nation.

The newly installed PM visited Kandy to visit the Temple of The Sacred Tooth Relic to offer his prayers.
