The allocation of seats for the new Prime Minister and the Cabinet would take place on Monday (12), Sergeant-at-arms Narendra Fernando said.

He said all arrangements in this regard had been completed and acting on the gazette notification relating to the new appointments and obtaining instructions of the Speaker, the allocation of seats would be done.

Narendra Fernando further said that he expects explicit instructions on the allocation of seats from the Speaker and on receiving such instructions within an hour the allocation of seats could be completed.

Meanwhile, the printing of invitations for the opening of the new sessions of Parliament had already been handed over to the government press. These facts were revealed by the Sergeant-at-arms, who is in charge of the security of the Parliamentary complex and the Council Chambers.

The Parliament prorogued by the President is due to be reconvened on the 14th. (Sujith Hewa Julige)

    An excellent job would be to put MR behind bars. At least you have as MR's name brother written his Sinhala first name correctly.

    As per the constitution and law President has the right to appoint PM if this was not the case how come Ranil ran the country for 3 years so he violated the constitution, democracy, Parliamentary values and also not holding elections so Mahinda/Maithree will get this country moving forward for a long time

    If I want to say short and sweet: MS tries his best to keep his powerfor another 6 to 7 years. MR is trying use this chance to clear his familymembers from all sort of corruptions. Constitution is Clear.
