The Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena has rejected an amendment proposed by Parliamentarian Ranil Wickremesinghe to the no-confidence motion on Power and Energy Minister Udaya Gammanpila. The Leader of the UNP Party had proposed that the motion be amended to include the entire Cabinet as opposed to just the subject Minister.
However, the Speaker today informed Parliament that the amendment cannot be accepted as it is not in line with the original motion which is against the subject Minister and not the entire Cabinet. The Speaker said that the proposed amendment is out of order and cannot be accepted.
