President invites all MPs


President Ranil Wickremesinghe invited all MPs in writing to join him in forming a national programme with the participation of all the Parties in Parliament for establishing economic and social stability in the country.

Wickremesinghe in the letter said, the plans are afoot to introduce economic reforms and stability as well as to resolve the social crisis in the country.

“However, I believe that a national programme should be initiated with the participation of the parties in Parliament, intellectuals, civil society organisations and all the other stakeholders to resolve the current economic and social crisis,” Wickremesinghe said.  The President further said he wishes to initiate a broad discussion on enacting the 19th Amendment to the Constitution and Sectoral Oversight Committees in Parliament. He requested the Party leaders to inform him if they agree with the idea.
