Leader of the House Minister Dinesh Gunawardena said today that Parliamentary proceedings for this week will be cut to two days.
The Parliament session this week was scheduled to go through Friday, June 24th.
The Parliamentary Business Committee, on the other hand, has decided that Parliament will only meet today and tomorrow (22).
Minister Gunawardena stated that the decision was made after considering the current fuel shortage.
Opposition parties Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) and National People’s Power (NPP) declared earlier today that they will boycott Parliamentary proceedings this week.
Both parties claimed that the previous Parliament sessions had failed to benefit the public or better their livelihoods, and that the administration had failed to resolve the country’s present challenges.
