Local Debate on KNDU Bill postponed

It has been decided that the Kotelawala National Defence University (KNDU) Bill will not be tabled in Parliament on Friday (06), State Minister of National Security & Disaster Management Chamal Rajapaksa said.

Several members of the ruling party have submitted amendments to the Bill, whilst the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) had also requested that several amendments be made to the proposed Bill.

The Opposition too, welcomed the decision to delay the vote.

Accordingly, the KNDU Bill will not be debated on Friday, till further consultations are held, thereby providing an opportunity for other MPs to express their views on the matter.
