The People’s Bank Amendment Draft Bill was passed in Parliament today with amendments.

Due to objections raised by opposition on several occasions regarding this Draft Bill, the government was unable to get it passed on the suggested date.

This Draft Bill was subject to debate on two occasions in Parliament previously and subsequently amendments were submitted today.

Parliamentarians Bimal Ratnayake, Dinesh Gunawardena and Susil Premajayanth submitted amendments to the third Clause of the Draft Bill.

Anyhow the government did not express agreement to these amendments.

As a result, based on the request of the Opposition, a vote was held regarding the third Clause of the Draft Bill and there were 37 votes in favour of it and 72 votes against it.

Subsequently, at the Committee stage other amendments were submitted and on the third reading the People’s Bank Amendment Draft Bill was passed in Parliament.
