The Galewala PS session, which were scheduled to be held on 12 May, was suspended by the Secretary of the P. S. K. Abeyratne due to the lack of a quorum.
She stated that for the session to get underway at least 10 members of the PS should have been present, but that she was forced to suspend the sitting due to the lack of a quorum.
According to Abeyratne, the SLPP, JVP, SJB and SLFP members did not attend and only eight members of the UNP had been present.
Even UNP members were not present at the PS chamber but proceeded to stage a protest opposite the premises displaying placards and banners whilst being dressed in black. The PS Secretary stated that the next session of the PS will be convened in another fortnight.
