Parliament is to inform President Maithripala Sirisena that he has to attend sessions at least once in three months as per the constitution.
Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella said that he would remind President that he will have to attend parliament sessions every three months as he is responsible to the legislature as per the constitution.
Mr Kiriella said this when Deputy Speaker Ananda Kumarasiri requested him to remind the President about it.
The discussion on the issue cropped up when JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated that the President had to attend parliament sessions once in every three months as he is responsible to the legislature.
“The President had not come to parliament since August last year although he is bound to come once in every three months as per the constitution,” Mr Dissanayake said.
