The Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa said today he is studying further that who should be given the Opposition leader position in parliament.

The Speaker stated this when UPFA MP Kumara Welgama questioned the Speaker about his decision over the post of Opposition Leader.

Speaker Rajapaksa also stated that he cannot exactly say how long it will take to study the issue.

Heated arguments took place in parliament during the last few weeks after the SLFP MPs accepted ministerial positions in the government.

At that moment, the Speaker informed the parliament that he would study the issue and announce his decision today.

Meanwhile a petition with the signatures of 54 MPs have been handed over to Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa today.
