A A A

Issuing an extraordinary gazette, President Maithripala Sirisena prorogued Parliament with effect from Thursday midnight. 

The next Parliament session would be commenced on May 8.

The prorogation is the period between the end of a Parliament session and the opening of the next Parliament session.

During a prorogation, no motions or questions can be tabled in Parliament. It brings nearly all parliamentary business to an end.

The Parliament was prorogued for the last time on May 17, 2009.

    For what purpose did sena do this? This is undemocratic. Just because you have powers does not mean you should use them. Banana republic at its finest

    The best that MY3 can do for the country is to prorogue it for eternity. Nothing constructive ever comes out of the 225 inside it except to burden the poor further.

    There will be a sigh of relief for the house from the misbehaving members..........

    He has prorogued because he has no control over his own flock. Rather than attacking the rogues he is on war parth with Ranil.

    IT IS REAL THREAT OF PARLIAMENT DEMOCRACY. THIS POWER MUST BE ABOLISHED. IN THIS COUNTRY PRESIDENT IS BEING RESPECTED BY THIS COUNTRYMEN NEXT TO ING OF DEMOCRACY, THAT IS THE REASON WE ALWAYS CALLED HIS AS HIS EXCELLENCY. BUT WE EXPECT SIMPLE EXPLANATION FROM HIS ACTION ON PARLIAMENT MATTER.

    TJ Saturday, 14 April 2018 10:35 AM

    I initially read it as "Parliament is Pro Rouges"

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Saturday, 14 April 2018 01:17 PM

    Out of very few most of Parliamentarian are Honorable People's representatives. We have to respect our representatives because we selected them,

    With nothing going for the President these days, this is perhaps one way of making his presence felt.
