The new parliament was sworn in on 1 September 2015.[10] Karu Jayasuriya was elected Speaker, Thilanga Sumathipala as the Deputy Speaker and Selvam Adaikalanathan as the Deputy Chairman of Committees.[11][12] Lakshman Kiriella was appointed Leader of the House and Gayantha Karunathilaka was appointed Chief Government Whip.[13][14]

The Speaker recognised TNA leader R. Sampanthan as Leader of the Opposition on 3 September 2015.[15][16] JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayaka was nominated to be Chief Opposition Whip.[17][18]

The Parliament became a Constitutional Assembly on 9 March 2016 in order to formulate a new constitution for Sri Lanka.[19]

Thilanga Sumathipala resigned as Deputy Speaker on 25 May 2018.[20][21] His replacement Ananda Kumarasiri was elected on 5 June 2018.[22][23]

Following the withdrawal of the UPFA from the national government, Mahinda Rajapaksa and Mahinda Amaraweera were recognised as Leader of the Opposition and Chief Opposition Whip on 18 December 2018.[24][25]

Government

On 20 August 2015 the central committee of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), the main constituent of the UPFA, agreed to form a national government with the UNP for two years.[26][27] Ranil Wickremesinghe, leader of the UNP, was sworn in as Prime Minister on 21 August 2015.[28][29] Immediately afterwards a memorandum of understanding to work together in Parliament was signed by acting SLFP general secretary Duminda Dissanayake and UNP general secretary Kabir Hashim.[30][31] On 3 September Parliament voted by 143 votes (101 UNFGG, 40 UPFA, 1 EPDP, 1 SLMC) to 16 votes (11 UPFA, 5 JVP), with 63 absent (43 UPFA, 16 TNA, 3 UNFGG, 1 JVP), to approve the formation of a national government.[32][33]

Three UNFGG cabinet ministers were sworn in on 24 August 2015.[34][35] A further 39 cabinet ministers, 28 from the UNFGG and 11 from the UPFA, were sworn in on 4 September 2015.[36][37] Three more cabinet ministers, one from the UNFGG and two from the UPFA, were sworn in on 9 September 2015.[38][39] 19 state ministers (11 UNFGG, 8 UPFA) and 21 deputy ministers (11 UNFGG, 10 UPFA) were also sworn in on 9 September 2015.[40][41] Two more deputy ministers, both from the UPFA, were sworn in on 10 September 2015.[42][43] A further cabinet minister from the UPFA was sworn in on 23 October 2015.[44][45] A further cabinet minister from the UNFGG was sworn in on 25 February 2016.[46][47][48] A UPFA state minister and two deputy ministers (one UNFGG, one UPFA) were sworn in on 6 April 2016.[49][50]

Constitutional crisis

The UPFA withdrew from the national government on 26 October 2018.[51][52] President Maithripala Sirisena, leader of the UPFA, dismissed Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and replaced him with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.[53][54][55][56] The following day Sirisena prorogued Parliament.[57][58] A constitutional crisis ensued as the UNP refused to accept changes, describing them as unconstitutional, illegal and a coup.[59][60] Over the next few days Sirisena appointed a new cabinet consisting of MPs from the UPFA, EPDP and defections from the UNP.[61][62][63] Despite the defections the UPFA could not muster the support of a majority of MPs and with the TNA, which held the balance of power in Parliament, announcing that it would support a motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Rajapaksa, Sirisena dissolved parliament on 9 November 2018 and called fresh elections for 5 January 2019.[64][65][66] The UNP, TNA, JVP and several others challenged the dissolution in the Supreme Court which on 13 November 2018 issued a stay on the dissolution until 7 December 2018.[67][68][69]

Parliament re-convened on 14 November 2018 when 122 (100 UNFGG, 14 TNA, 6 JVP, 2 UPFA) out of 225 MPs supported the motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Rajapaksa.[70][71][72] Sirisena and the UPFA refused to accept the motion of no confidence, saying that Speaker Karu Jayasuriya had not followed parliamentary procedures.[73][74] On 16 November 2018 parliament passed an amended motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Rajapaksa with the support of 122 MPs.[75][76] Sirisena rejected the second the motion of no confidence as well, saying that he would not re-appoint Wickremesinghe as prime minister.[77][78]

On 3 December 2018, following a quo warranto petition filed by 122 MPs, the Court of Appeal issued an interim order restraining Rajapaksa and 48 ministers from functioning.[79][80][81] On 12 December 2018 117 MPs, including 14 from the TNA, supported a motion of confidence in Wickremesinghe.[82][83] A seven-bench Supreme Court unanimously ruled on 13 December 2018 that Sirisena's dissolution of parliament on 9 November 2018 was unconstitutional and null, void ab initio and without force or effect in law.[84][85][86] The following day a three-bench Supreme Court refused to vacate the Court of Appeal's interim order but allowed for a full appeal to be heard in mid January 2019.[87][88] Rajapaksa resigned as Prime Minister on 15 December 2018.[89][90] Wickremesinghe was sworn in as Prime Minister the following day, ending the crisis.[91][92]
