Motions against Musthapha un­likely this year

Sunday Times (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS -

Two dif­fer­ent votes of no- con­fi­dence against Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment and Pro­vin­cial Coun­cil Min­is­ter Faiszer Musthapha are not likely to be de­bated this year.

One was moved by the ‘ Joint Op­po­si­tion’ while the other came f rom the Janatha Vimuk­thi Per­a­muna (JVP).

The on­go­ing bud­get de­bate is ex­pected to end on De­cem­ber 9. There­after, Par­lia­ment will sit only on De­cem­ber 11 as the Con­sti­tu­tional As­sem­bly. That is to en­able ‘ Joint Op­po­si­tion’ mem­bers who had not made any speech dur­ing the ear­lier de­bate on the pro­posed con­sti­tu­tional changes to do so.

How­ever, the motions will re­main in the Or­der Book of Par­lia­ment and are not likely to come up early in view of the im­pend­ing lo­cal elec­tions.
