Prime Minister chaired a meeting of political parties to discuss the proposed Parliamentary Committees and the proposed National Council at the Parliament complex yesterday (29).
He urged the parties to submit their proposals as early as possible so that final decision could be reached by Friday (Sept 2). The party leaders agreed to submit their views on the draft submitted by Wednesday (31) so that the establishment of National Council could be expedited. Most of them agreed that a consensus must be reached between political parties regarding the Committees and National Council.
The meeting was attended by representatives of SLPP, the main opposition SJB, SLFP, CWC, EPDP and several others. Secretary General of Parliament also took part in the meeting.
