Deputy Chairman of the North Central Provincial Council, Jayantha Marasinghe who backed the Joint Opposition, extended his support to President Maithripala Sirisena today (22).

He voted in favor of passing the 20th Amendment, when a resolution was taken up for vote during the proceedings at the North Central Provincial Council.

Accordingly, the NCPC endorsed the 20th Amendment to the Constitution that enables the Provincial Council elections to be conducted on the same day.

When the resolution on the draft bill was moved by Chief Minister Peshala Jayarathna, Opposition Leader Anil Rathnayake pointed that it should be supported unanimously.

However, the Joint Opposition Members have raised objections at that moment citing that they need more time to study the draft bill.

Then chairman D. M. Amaratunga conducted a vote. 15 members voted for the resolution while 13 voted against it.
