Apr 21, 2015 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s parliament on Tuesday was adjourned again till 12.30 p.m by the Speaker, Chamal Rajapakse.

Sri Lanka’s PM is scheduled to present 19th amendment to the Constitution in parliament for the 2nd reading today.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka’s President Maithripala Sirisena also arrived in parliament and Parliamentarian Dinesh Gunawardane has requested to meet the president to discuss about the 19th amendment to the Constitution.

Parliament also adjourned yesterday following a situation that irrupted in the chamber with opposition parliamentarians staging a protest against a move to summon former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to the bribery commission.

However, Speaker Rajapakse informed parliament that the Minister of Justice has said that the government has informed the bribery and corruption commission to go to the former president’s residence and get the required statement.
