AG has no power - Vasudewa

The admission of MP Premalal Jayasekera to Parliament is a decision of the Speaker and Parliament, not of the Attorney General, said Water Supply Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara at a press conference yesterday (31).

He was responding to a question by journalists over Jayasekera's fate as the AG had stated it would be illegal for the former to attend parliament.
