Various views are being expressed regarding the proclamation to prorogue Parliament for the first time in several decades.

The President issued the order under powers vested in him by Article 70 of the Constitution.

Joint Opposition Group Leader Dinesh Gunawardana said that this would cause several political issues in the future.

However, State Minister Ajith P. Perera speaking to media following a programme in Kalutara said that this would give a fresh start to the government.

The next session will commence on 8th of May while the SLFP is also to decide in the meantime if they are to leave the Unity Government or not.

The second session of the current parliament will, therefore, commence with the President taking the Chair to make a special statement on the government’s action plan.

There has been a single instance in history where the Parliament had to be dissolved after the action plan has been presented.

This was in 1964 where a group of SLFP MP’s voted along with the UNP against the action plan resulting in the dissolution of Parliament.
