Heated arguments occurred in parliament today for not fixing a date to debate the no-confidence motion against Minister Rishard Bathiudeen.

Despite the arguments by the Opposition, Leader of the House, Lakshman Kiriella said that the government would not fix a date for the debate without appointing a select committee to inquire into the allegations.

In the face of the continuing protest, the speaker told the house that he would announce a date for the debate after the matter is discussed with political party leaders.

At the same time, the speaker’s office stated that the relevant political leaders’ meeting will be held at 3 pm tomorrow.

However, Opposition MPs walked to the well of the house and engaged in protests.

Later, the parliament was adjourned to 10.30 am tomorrow.

At the same time, it is significant that the proposal to appoint a select committee was passed with amendments amid the commotion.
