The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) has decided to officially crossover to the government during the next parliamentary sessions.
The SLMC High Command last week announced the party’s decision to support the government.
SLMC Chairman Basheer Segu Dawood has told the media that the party was to officially crossover to the government ranks during parliamentary sessions yesterday (16). However, the party was unable to do so since SLMC Leader Rauf Hakeem was unable to attend the session.
Parliament is to meet on Monday (22) for the budget presentation and would continue till next month with the debate and the second and third reading votes.
The SLMC contested the last general election under the UNP and currently has eight MPs in the House.
