Special meeting of SLPP MPs today


A special meeting of SLPP parliamentarians, under the patronage of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, is scheduled for today (20).

The main topics down for discussion are the upcoming 21st Amendment to the Constitution, the quick resolution of the country’s current crisis, and the recent electoral reforms.

An SLPP MP said he would express his views on electoral reform and the 21st Amendment and that many ruling party MPs believe that the Constitution should be amended after the country’s crisis has been resolved.

According to internal sources, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa too will attend the meeting.
