Parliament would reconvene on November 16 as per the Gazette issued by President Maithripala Sirisena and not on Monday, November 5, UPFA MP Susil Premajayantha said today.
Earlier yesterday, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said President Sirisena would likely to reconvene Parliament on November 5 instead of November 16.
However, addressing a news briefing at the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Office, MP Premajayantha said at least three working days were required to reconvene Parliament once it was prorogued.
“Therefore, Parliament cannot be reconvened on the 5th. Reports to that effect are incorrect,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

Until full democracy restored, SL deserves int'l sanctions. This is the only way to curb executive president powers. This is menence.

Actually, delaying will cause doubt in those already with MR and they will start to leave. This won't take more than a few more days to start happening. Sorry.

After just one week they have started to differ. Now we can see who was at fault in the past 3 1/2 years.

If the members vote for MR's budget that means they have endorse the government of MR. If not the House will be dissolved and going to a fresh election is what MR wants.

So many leaders and spokesmen in SLFP/SLPP contradicting each other!

MR appointed as the unconstitutional PM does not know when the Parliament is to be reconvened. MS/MR bullying the citizens of SL for their own benefits.

If you cant control RW how can you control MR :). MR wants two birds in one stone. He will happily give chair back to RW to become full control of UPFA/SLFP/SLPP.
