The Mahaweli Center in Colombo today hosted a media briefing by academics representing all universities to elaborate on the political situation, role of the Speaker and the need for a General Election.

Speaking here, Dr. Ajith Dissanayake of the University of Kelaniya charged that Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has become a cat’s paw of a western force. According to Ranjith Premalal De Silva of the University of Peradeniya, the constitution gave more powers to the executive than the legislature.
