Maithri averts unfair change of Speaker

President Maithripala Sirisena is reported to have prevented a possible move to oust Speaker of Parliament Chamal Rajapaksa according to a source at the Presidential Secretariat in Colombo.

For there to be a change in the Speaker's position, he must either resign or a no-confidence motion should be brought up against him by the majority of MPs in Parliament.

The seat of the Speaker can also fall vacant upon his death.
