Former Speaker Karu Jayasuriya today rejected the reports that said he would reconvene the Parliament unilaterally.

“While fighting Covid-19, Sri Lanka does not want another constitutional crisis. Therefore, rumours that I would reconvene the Parliament unilaterally are false. All efforts must be taken by the Executive to avert a crisis. In a dispute, I am bound to uphold judiciary’s decision,” he tweeted today.

Yesterday, Mr. Jayasuriya said as the election date has been fixed now, all effort must be made not to allow a constitutional crisis, that can cost the nation dearly of its economy and legitimacy. 

“With good faith, I hope Sri Lanka can confine Covid-19 to a health and economic challenge, not a political one
