Leader of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party Professor Tissa Vitharane says that it is pathetic that the Speaker is acting as the Deputy Leader of the UNP without showing his impartiality as the Speaker.

At a press briefing held in Colombo yesterday Professor Tissa Vitharane said that the Speaker should be independent and not be involved in party politics.
