"Sampanthan won’t  be removed from Opposition post" - Dallas 

Opposition Leader R. Sampanthan would not be removed from his post, MP Dallas Alahapperuma said at a media briefing held at the Prime Minister’s Office yesterday (30). 

He also expressed despondency over the statements being made by the International forces regarding the prorogation of parliament.

“We postponed the parliament sittings by just 11 days from the 5th to the 16th. We understand Ranil Wickremesinghe’s concern, by why is the western countries and state department so concerned? The LG elections were delayed by two and a half years but these state departments or organisations did not send a single letter expressing concern over that. Now, why are these countries trying to give certifications about our democracy, Alahapperuma asked.
