“Convene House, activate Constitutional Council” : Anura

JVP Leader Anura Dissanayake has urged Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe to convene Parliament forthwith to activate the Constitutional Council to re-establish good governance.

The Chief Whip of the Opposition added that since the Parliament is adjourned till September 22, it will take a long time to take necessary steps. Therefore it becomes necessary to summon Parliament and pass the relevant motion.

He explained that it is not possible to activate the Constitutional Council without obtaining parliament’s approval and therefore establishing independent commissions cannot see the light of day.
