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.

Our news team inquired from the minister of Public Administration and Home Affairs W. D. J. Seneviratne with regard to the establishing of new laws with regard to the investigation of the impeachment.
