Parliamentarian Dullas Alahapperuma says the Joint Opposition plans to seek the view of the Supreme Court regarding the Local Government Amendment Draft Bill.

It was passed in parliament last week. The MP disclosed this plan speaking at a public rally held in Dondra yesterday (27).

Meanwhile, the sittings at the Western Provincial Council was postponed to 4th of September today (28).

The decision was reached following a tensed situation that obstructed the sessions when it began this morning.

The tensed situation began when the council prepared to debate the 20th Amendment to the constitution.

Even the mace was damaged during the melee.

Thereafter, the sittings were suspended and convened a party leaders meeting.

Once the sittings began again, the Chief Minister Isura Devapriya proposed to postpone the vote on 20A.

Accordingly, 51 councilors voted in favour of postponing the vote on the 20A, and 41 members opposed it.

Later, the sittings were suspended until the 4th of September.

Meanwhile, Paffrel Organization announced today (28), that they have decided to seek the view of the Supreme Court whether 20A could be passed without a referendum.

The Paffrel said they would file the petition seeking clarifications on three areas.
