Eran submits private members Bill to amend Declaration of Assets & Liabilities Law



Opposition Parliamentarian Eran Wickramaratne today submitted a private member’s Bill to amend the Declaration of Assets and Liabilities Law, No.1 of 1975 to make the provisions of the act apply to the President as well.

Accordingly, the President, Members of Parliament, and other high-ranking Judicial, Public, and Public sector officials have to declare their Assets and Liabilities annually.

The existing Declaration of Assets and Liabilities Law No.1 of 1975 does not warrant the President to declare his assets and liabilities.
