PM, together with Cabinet, unlawful: Omalpe Sobhitha Thero

The entire Cabinet headed by the Prime Minister in Sri Lanka is unlawful, alleged Omalpe Sobhitha Thero, in a revelation that although the Cabinet of Ministers has to be sworn in in accordance with the provisions of the new 20th Amendment to the Constitution, no such event has taken place so far.

The Thera made this allegation speaking to a press briefing held in Embilipitiya today (11). According to Article 53 of the Constitution, it is mandatory for the Cabinet to take an oath again with regard to the amended clauses, the Thera pointed out.

“We are of the view that this conspiracy to destabilise the government and the entire country was not unintentional. The current Justice Minister is a scholar of law. Did he not know this? He may not have been unaware that he and his Cabinet were acting unconstitutionally. If so, it is doubtful whether he was involved in a conspiracy to plunge the government and the country into crisis,” the Thera commented.

The Thera further noted that the government should be stable to ensure the survival of the country, adding that the government should also be thinking about the decisions taken by an unlawful Cabinet.
