The Government says the Right to Information draft bill scheduled to be tabled in Parliament on the 23rd of June is of international standards.

Co-Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Gayantha Karunathileke speaking at the weekly Cabinet media briefing this morning said the previous government failed to table the Right to Information bill.

The Minister said the previous government was never willing to table a Right to Information Bill. He said they openly debated the bill but rejected to table it.

However Minister Karunathileke said a Canadian organization has commended the draft bill and rated it as the 7th best RTI bill in the world.
