TNA supports Sri Lankan President’s decision over ousting Rahil Wickremesinghe, provides 14 seats in parliament

Sri Lankan Tamil government on Thursday, showed their support to country’s decision of ousting Ranil Wickremesinghe from his post of Prime Minister, by cementing the majority of his parliament, which encourages his stake to lead Sri Lanka.

Recently the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has come up emerging as kingmaker which now holds the power to balance the parliament, with Sri Lanka pushing for TNA government’s support as it is facing crisis since October 26, when President has appointed Mahinda Rajapakse as Prime Minister turning down Wickremesinghe from the post.

TNA also promised a clear majorities in parliament and also provided Sri Lanka government with 14 seats.

Sri Lankan held two vote sections, where at both the times the parliament has voted against Rajapakse and backed up Wickremesinghe with a sparking of fight over there in the chamber between the supporters of both.

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena is under pressure to justify his decision of appointing Rajapakse as Prime Minister. Maithripala say Wickremesinghe has turned into a foe and does not supports that the government’s majority decision is strong enough to form a government.

TNA has provided them 14 seats with majority in parliament. Tamil legislator Dharmalingam Sithadthan said, “Normally we would not have taken sides but in this case we had to come out and take a stand in the interest of democracy.”
