Parliamentarian Nalin Bandara said the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) has been drawn into a support mechanism in Parliament for President Ranil Wickremesinghe’s all-party programme.
Taking to Facebook on 6 August, Bandara noted that during a recent discussion with President Wickremesinghe, he proposed the formation of a Presidential Commission to investigate the issues that led to the country’s economic crisis.
“Parliament has the power over money. My proposal is to establish a Presidential Commission to investigate the causes of this economic crisis,” he added.
According to the President’s invitation for an all-party programme, SJB’s attention is focused on the parliament’s support mechanism.
Bandara stated that the President indicated that because financial powers are vested in Parliament, a Parliamentary Select Committee is appropriate.
