Sri Lanka government faces no-confidence vote

Sri Lanka’s Parliament on Wednesday began debating a no-confidence motion against the government for failing to prevent Easter suicide bombings that killed more than 250 people. The Opposition Marxist Peoples’ Liberation Front submitted a motion accusing the ruling coalition of failing to prevent the April 21 attacks despite the “fact that proper information had been made available regarding suicide terrorists.”
Voting on the motion is expected on Thursday.
Anura Dissanayaka, the leader of the Peoples’ Liberation Front, said the attacks occurred because the government failed to fulfil its responsibility. “People have no confidence in this government,” he said. Minister of Economic Reforms Harsha de Silva rejected the allegation. “If we knew about it, we would have taken preventive measures.”
