Motions against Musthapha unlikely this year
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.
