Opposition protests as 20A tabled in parliament Featured

The opposition staged a protest in Parliament as the draft 20th Amendment to the Constitution was tabled by the Government a short while ago.

The  draft amendment was tabled by Justice Minister Ali Sabry.

Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa raised a point-of-order and objected to the draft 20th Amendment being tabled in Parliament while a heated exchange of words later took place between the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) and the government MPs.

Holding posters, SJB MPs came down to the well of the House and protested.
