A problematic situation has arisen with respect to holding the debate on the proposal made by the UNP that it is to form a national government.

However, Leader of the House, Minister Lakshman Kiriella who presented the proposal, stated that the debate on this matter will be held on the 7th in parliament.

The proposal handed over to the speaker yesterday states that it has been decided to limit the number of cabinet ministers to 48.

The proposal also states that it has been decided that the number of non-cabinet and deputy ministers should not exceed 45.

Currently, the number of members in the cabinet of ministers has been limited to 30 while the number of non-cabinet, deputy and state ministers is at 27.

Accordingly, with the establishment of a national government, 18 more cabinet ministers and 18 more other ministerial appointments can be made.

The proposal should be debated and passed in parliament through a vote.

In response to an inquiry made by our news team, MP Dinesh Gunawardana stated that holding a debate on this matter on the 7th was not discussed thus far at party leader meetings.

Meanwhile, JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti stated that their party has not yet been informed of holding a debate on the proposal on the 7th.

Accordingly, the MP stated that the debate cannot be held on that day.
