The United National Party states that since existing legal provisions to investigate an impeachment, which is a parliamentary procedure, are insufficient, newer laws should be introduced in place of existing provisions empowering parliament to carryout such inquiries.

Issuing a release General Secretary of the UNP MP THissa Aththanayeke expressing his views in this regard noted that even the Supreme Courts interpretation had acknowledged that the impeachment was a procedure intrinsic to parliamentary proceedings.

In his release Aththanayeke adds that although the UNP was of such a stance, certain parties instead of chastising the government & reproving it of its actions, went on to reprove the actions of his party.

The release bearing Aththanayeke's signature further notes that if the bill presented before parliament as a private members motion by Parliamentarian Wijedasa Rajapaksa is approved of, then the required legal frame work in this regard could be formed.
