The main political parties are scheduled to hand over the names of their representatives to the Select Committee, to the Speaker today.

The JVP had earlier stated that they would also submit their names to the Speaker today.

A senior parliamentary spokesman said yesterday that if a problem arose  regarding the majority, in appointing representatives for the Select Committee for parliament’s upcoming activities, appointing a Select Committee would be problematic.

The reason for this is the Government Party as well as the opposition, each claim the majority membership to  itself.

However while parliament is scheduled to meet on Friday, the relevant members should be named today.

 the parliamentary spokesman said that if it was not possible to reach a consensus regarding the number of members, it would not be possible to appoint the Select Committee.

The Select Committee consists of 12 members inclusive of the Speaker.

, the parliament general secretary will announce the names submitted , on Friday when parliament meets.

All Activities of other committees, including the appointing of MPs will be carried out through the Select Committee.
