Joint Opposition MP Prasanna Ranaweera is scheduled to appear before the Parliamentary Privileges Committee today.
 
He is accused of unruly behavior in Parliament urging the Speaker to take action against MP Vijayakala Maheshwaran for making a pro-LTTE statement in Jaffna.
 
On the 3rd July, Joint opposition MPs encroached the Well of the House and staged a protest against Maheshwaran’s statement.
 
MP Ranaweera has been accused of attempting to snatch the mace on this occasion.
 
The MP confirmed that he would appear before the Parliamentary Privileges Committee today.
 
According to standing order 77 clause three an MP who commits a severe act against discipline by touching or raising the mace when placed in the parliament chamber is liable to a four-week suspension without taking into consideration the offence was committed for the first time.
