  • after Govt. withdraws day’s business 

 

By Ajith Siriwardana   

Parliament was yesterday adjourned till September 17 after the Government withdrew the day’s business amid Opposition claims that it was carried out because of the absence of a sufficient number of Government members. 

  The Opposition called for a vote after the Government moved the day’s business but later withdraw the Regulations under the Public Contracts Act and the Order under the Essential Public Services Act which were to be taken up yesterday.   


Chief Government Whip Gayantha Karunathilake presented the day’s business but the Opposition raised objections saying they were opposed to it and requested the Speaker to call for a vote.   


However, he said they would move the resolutions on another day if the opposition was against them. 

 
“We are not in a hurry. If the opposition is against the resolutions to be presented today, we will take them on another date,” Mr. Karunatilleke said.   


MP Dinesh Gunawardana pointed out that it was the tradition for the Speaker to call for a vote if the House was against the day’s business and added that the government was withdrawing the resolutions as they did not have sufficient MPs in parliament.   


“The government is not having the required votes today. That is why they are withdrawing the two resolutions. How can they pass a resolution with three votes,” he said.  
 
The Speaker announced that the government had withdrawn the day’s businesses and adjourned the House because MP Muthukumarana was not present to move the adjournment motion either.
