No confidence in the Prime Minister - Dinesh

There is no confidence in the Prime Minister. Whether the house has confidence in the Prime Minister or not is a very serious issue.

Having come to power on January 8, 2015, the good governance government commenced  the process of taking over the Central Bank under the purview of the Prime Minister and a Singaporean national was appointed as the Central Bank Governor.

There is only one Central Bank in the country and it is a known fact that its governor has the power to influence the country’s economy. The Central Bank which is traditionally under the Finance Ministry was taken away from the Finance Ministry and under the Prime Minister and Mahendran was appointed as the Governor knowing that he would not comply with the country’s accepted financial norms. The Prime Minister recommended the appointment of Mahendran and took on the responsibility which he accepted in parliament, said Joint Opposition MP Dinesh Gunawardena presenting the no-confidence motion on Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in parliament yesterday.
