Futile to move a no-faith motion against speaker - Dayasiri Featured

Dayasiri Jayasekara says it will be futile to move a no-confidence motion against speaker Karu Jayasuriya.

Responding to a question at a media briefing yesterday (28), Jayasekara said 122 MPs would support him at a voice vote.

Because of their backing, the speaker does not heed the presence of a government, he said.

He should call for the moving of a no-confidence motion properly if the government is to be toppled, he said.

Jayasekara added that a government having a majority and the speaker were two different matters.
