JO to go to IPU over Opposition Leader's post

Saturday, 12 May 2018 - 13:55

The Joint Opposition is planning to lodge a complaint with the Inter-Parliamentary Union regarding the post of Opposition Leader in Parliament.
70 MP’s out of 93 who were elected to Parliament from the United People's Freedom Alliance are now sitting in the Opposition.
The Joint Opposition MPs are of the view under such circumstances, it not ethical for the Tamil National Alliance to hold the post of Opposition Leader as they have only 16 members in the House.
