CC nominees not in Yahapalana line: Dinesh

9 September 2015 01:35 pm - 3     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The appointment of those with Cabinet portfolios to the Constitutional Council was against the principles of good governance, Mahajana Eksath Peramuna (MEP) leader Dinesh Gunawardane charged today.

Gunawardane told the Daily Mirror there was agreement during the last Parliament to appoint MPs without Cabinet posts to the CC.

He said the President, and the Prime Minister had appointed Cabinet Ministers as their nominees.

He said the presence of Cabinet ministers in the CC would result in conflict of interests. He said he had urged the Prime Minister to reconsider it. (Kelum Bandara)

    Time for a long break for you and your brother. Of course there will be a drop in consumption of Strepsils.

    Dear Dinesh, you are talking about a group of people with absolutely no ethics.Good governance is nothing but two words in the hands of these people.
