Deputy Secretary General of Parliament Neil Iddawala says voting of the proposed Constitutional Council will be held on March 10th.
The relevant proposal was presented to the Parliament on February 23rd and the voting is scheduled for the following day.
However, the Cabinet decided later to postpone the event, following requests made by SLFP members.
Meanwhile, the TNA has decided to vote in favour of the proposal. Party MP Sumandiran told our news team that the decision was taken during a meeting held at the Opposition leader’s office yesterday.
The meeting was chaired by party leader R. Sambandan and several TNA MPs including Selvam Addaikalanathan and M.A. Sumandiran also participated.
MP Sumandiran said an adjourning debate will be held in parliament tomorrow concerning the LTTE suspects who have been arrested under the PTA.
