Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said that an anonymous caller had threatened him with death unless he recognized the joint opposition MPs as a separate group within Parliament.

The Speaker told Parliament today that he received the threat over the telephone but he was not shaken by the threats and maintains his position on the issue.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe added he will engage in discussions with President Maithripala Sirisena adding he as the leader of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) should decide on 51 members of the opposition calling to be identified as an independent group in Parliament.
