A no confidence motion, signed by over 100 MPs, has been handed over to the Speaker against Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, Parliamentarian Ranjith de Zoysa told Ada Derana.

The motion was handed over to Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa on Monday (18) afternoon.

However, Minister Karunanayake during a press conference held last week insisted the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) to file the no-confidence motion that they were planning to present against him immediately.

“No issues. Ask them to file that no-confidence motion soon. But before that they better understand the real role of the Opposition,” he said.
