JVP urges Speaker to convene parliament

The JVP has urged to take immediate steps needed to convene parliament.

A letter addressed to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya, signed by JVP MPs - Anura Kumara Dissanayake, Vijitha Herath, Nihal Galappatthi, Nalinda Jayatissa, Sunil Handunetti and Bimal Rathnayake points out that this prevailing crisis ridden political situation is not at all beneficial for the country and its citizens.

Keeping this away from being taken up as a debate by proroguing parliament is detrimental to the country’s democracy. the letter notes.
