Wijedasa escapes no confidence motion: ousted as minister

There is no plan to bring a no confidence motion against Justice Minister Wijayadasa Rajapaksa , while his removal as the Justice Minister will be discussed at tomorrow’s interim committee meeting, said a UNP senior minister.

He said this in response to a query made by Sri Lanka Mirror
regarding the no confidence motion against Rajapaksa.

He said it was a joke that his own party wants to being in a no confidence motion against him, adding that the President and Prime Minister have the right to remove anyone from their posts.

However Sri Lanka Mirror reliably learns that a petition with the signatures of around 60 ministers is currently being signed to be handed over to the Prime Minister.
