Ninety four MPs have not passed their GEC (O/L) examination while there are only 25 graduates among the 225 legislators in the present Sri Lankan Parliament, former Chancellor of the University of Peradeniya, Prof. M O A de Zoysa said yesterday.

He observed that MPs who have been elected to make laws on behalf of the people must conduct themselves with dignity

Addressing a media briefing held in Colombo yesterday, he said the conduct of the Joint Opposition MPs since the day the Yahapalana government came to power amounted to a contravention of parliamentary discipline.

Parliament is a place that makes laws. Its members should be dignified, with a knowledge of their subjects, logical intelligence and of impeccable conduct. But, we cannot see these qualities in most of the MPs today,” he said.Taxpayers money is being spent for the welfare of all MPs and a Rs. 2500 Special Attendance Allowance, with the luxury meals, are provided to them for one sitting. Therefore, MPs should bear in mind their responsibilities. But, everyday, when parliament meets, JO members disrupt parliament proceedings for about one or two hours. So how can parliament pass laws on behalf of the people and the country? The conduct of certain senior members is not good and it is disgusting.

They may be senior but, they have not matured. They have been given front seats to set an example to junior MPs,” he said. Senior Lecturer at the University of Sri Jayawardenapura Dr. Terrence Purasinghe said Sri Lanka follows traditions and conventions built over a long period of time in the British Parliament. Apart from these, Standing Orders have laid down how business should be conducted in the House. These are the rules that have to be followed by the MPs. But, most of the MPs do not follow them today.

This is a classic example to prove, that statistics never give the true picture of anything.
(93 % selecting 42 % buffoons to rule them).  Shocked

education alone doesnt make a good a good law maker. best example is ranil . he has a llb degree from colombo university. this is very rare among colombo elite . most of rich and powerful colombo people cannot get a seat in state university, so they go abroad to get a degree .chandrika, sajith,anura etc are such foreign graduates. so ranil must have some brains , but he is behaving like a montisori kid in the law making place.

Note: It has been observed that Prof. M O A de Zoysa does not have a credible source for this info and this has been published by Daily News without any verification. Turns out that he his source was an old newspaper article before the current parliament was elected.

election commissioner should publish the educational and professional qualifications of the contestants at the time of election. the voter should have the right to know the qualification of the contestants .this publication must be made compulsory by the law .
