Parliament today approved three representatives of the Civic Society to the Constitutional Council, Parliament sources said.
With this move the appointment of the new Constitutional Council becomes complete.
The names of three civil society members, who were appointed to the council as per the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, are Dr. Jayantha Dhanapala, Ahmad Yusuf and Naganathan Sellvakumaran.

When did Mr Dhanapala become Dr Dhanapala? Or is that he too stoops low to use the prefix having been awarded a Honorary Doctorate? Does this not equate him with Dr Mervyn de Silva? SHAME!!!!

I have been know Mr.Jayantha Dhanapala for so many years and he never use the title "Doctor". Although public can call a doctorate degree holder by "Doctor'. Shame on you Gamaya for misleading fellow citizens
