Parliament sessions to be telecast live from today

8 October 2015 03:18 am - 4     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

Parliament sessions will be telecast live on State TV for one hour from today  following a decision madeby the Consultative Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, sources said.They said the sessions would be telecast live via Rupavahini TV channel on an experimental basis.

The telecast will continue uninterrupted if the initial exercise proves a success. This would be the first time that parliamentary debates will be shown live on state TV. However, a few debates such as the debate on the 2000 constitution and the debate on the privatization of national carrier Air Lanka were telecast in 1998. (Yohan Perera)

    Very good move, public should be aware what is going on inside parliament and parliament sessions should be useful for public and country development. unlike the previous ruling parliament. Parliament should be handled in a professional way. Time should be given to each one without disturbing other person.
