The JVP says a new Prime Minister and a Parliament must be appointed as the Premier and the Legislature will receive new powers through the 21st Amendment to the Constitution.
The party said no Member of Parliament has the right to obtain such new powers.
Speaking during a media briefing this morning, Leader of JVP Parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake said President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, has proven his incapabilities in governing the country, adding that the Head of State has a Constitutional right and public mandate to remain in power.
MP Dissanayake said considerable powers vested in the President will be transferred to the Prime Minister through the proposed draft 21st Amendment adding however no member in the present Parliament possess qualifications to bear such powers.
He said the public must be granted an opportunity to vote for a new Parliament adding they will be aware of the reason to vote in a new Legislature.
The Parliamentarian claimed it was unjust for an MP with a single seat to be given such powers.
He said in order to resolve the matter regarding the dissolution of Parliament, an interim proposal to the 21st Constitutional Amendment must be tabled defining the term of the ninth Parliament.
Meanwhile, MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the President must not be given the opportunity to become a Minister in, under a new Amendment.
He claimed President Rajapaksa’s greed to further extend powers has been proven.
The MP said the JVP is of the view that the President should not be able to hold any Ministerial portfolios according to provisions of the 19th Amendment.
MP Dissanayake said the Head of State has the authority to change Ministers adding not long ago President Rajapaksa held all portfolios when the Cabinet of Ministers tendered their resignations.
He said one of the most controversial situations in politics is Parliamentarians defecting with the aim of obtaining Ministerial portfolios and to avoid prosecution over various allegations.
The MP said it is a common occurrence for certain MPs to crossover at crucial moments in Parliament adding therefore the public’s best interest is not secured.
