Is the Sri Lankan President Sirisena guilty of attempting a soft coup?
As Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is sworn in and the country's constitutional crisis draws to a close, should President Sirisena be investigated for attempting a soft coup to reinstate previous President Rajapaksa as prime minister (even though he is currently under investigation for corruption)? Should parliament be looking to impeach him as president?

Impeachment could help stamp out Sri Lankan corruption

Maithripala Sirisena is guilty of attempting a soft coup in order to usher disgraced former President Mahinda Rajapaksa into the position of prime minister. Rajapaksa is currently under investigation for major fraud and corruption charges, and has apparent historical ties with Sirisena, making this a clear display of attempted corruption and contempt of parliament. Impeachment proceedings are currently underway, and if they do not help stamp out corruption they will at least be a step in the right direction.
