Complaint over MR not being allowed to speak at debate Featured

A complaint has been lodged with the speaker against ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s not being allowed to speak at the parliamentary debate yesterday (01) on the interim report of the steering committee of the Constitutional Assembly, joint opposition sources say.

Rajapaksa returned from a visit to India and went directly from the airport to parliament to participate in the debate, say the sources.

JO’s leader Dinesh Gunawardena and Piyal Nishantha, Priyankara Jayaratne and Keheliya Rambukwella have met the speaker and expressed their opposition over this matter.
