Sri Lanka President agrees to reconvene parliament on November 7 - speaker

Sri Lanka's Speaker Karu Jayasuriya announced Friday that President Maithripala Sirisena has agreed to reconvene the parliament on November 7. Parliamentarians of United National Front, the main Tamil party Tamil National Alliance (TNA), and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) met with Speaker Karu Jayasuriya on Friday for a floor test to determine which party held the majority. Speaker informed the lawmakers that the parliament will be reconvened on 7 November and expects the gazette to be issued soon. The MPs have urged the speaker to convene parliament with his powers if President fails to reconvene the 225- member parliament which was prorogued by the President until November 16 after the dismissal of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and appointment of former strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa as the prime minister.
