Emergency passed sans vote

Sep 7, 2010 11:11:12 AM - itnnews.lk

The United National Party has walked out of Parliament. The Emergency extension has been approved without a vote.

Moving the resolution to extend the Emergency in Parliament today, Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne said that based on information given by terrorists taken into custody, a large haul of weapons concealed by the terrorists for their use is being recovered. This was been done in a systematic way. The Government’s main intention is to see that a war will not recur. To make this a reality, the Prime Minister emphasized that the honest intention of approving all these bills was to make it a reality.
