The new parliament was sworn in on 18 October 2000. Opposition MP Anura Bandaranaike was elected Speaker unopposed.[2] Sarath Moonesinghe was elected Deputy Speaker and Lalith Dissanayake was elected Deputy Chairman of Committees.[3]

Government[edit]

The PA was able to form a government with the support of the four NUA MPs elected under their party's name (the NUA contested with the PA in two districts and under its name in all other districts) and the four EPDP MPs.

On 13 October 2000, President Chandrika Kumaratunga re-appointed Ratnasiri Wickremanayake as Prime Minister.[4] The rest of the government, comprising 40 Ministers, were sworn in on 19 October 2000. President Kumaratunga retained control of the important ministries of Defence and Finance. 35 Deputy Ministers were sworn in on 3 November 2000.[5]

A political crisis engulfed the 11th parliament in the middle of 2001 as numerous PA MPs defected to the opposition (see section below). Faced with losing a no confidence vote President Kumaratunga dissolved parliament on 10 October 2001.[6][7]
