Senaratne said the second illegal act of the President was to dissolve Parliament after he found he did not have the numbers to show a majority in Parliament.
By avoiding a test of his majority on the floor of the House, Rajapaksa will remain caretaker prime minister until elections are concluded and a new parliament meets on January 17.

"This dissolution by the President is illegal and goes against the constitution", the UNP said on Twitter.
President Sirisena has failed to persuade the parliament to support his ouster of his one-time ally Wickramasinghe. The speaker, the 225th member, is neutral. To this, Wickremesinghe said he would certainly challenge the decision in the court and the party would move an impeachment motion against the President saying, he is a threat to the democratic tradition of Sri Lanka.
The EU said Friday, before the dissolution, that the crisis had scarred the Indian Ocean island's worldwide reputation. "We will fight this dictator to the end".
"You have not let this country be plunged into the darkness of dictatorship".
