The government’s proposed Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) aimed at finding solutions to resolve the ethnic issue is yet to be entered in the House Order Book and then tabled in parliament.
Parliament Secretary General Dhammika Kitulgoda has said the PSC would not be able to commence sittings for a few more weeks.
He has said a party leaders’ meeting chaired by Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa including the Leader of the House and Opposition Leader will have to decide on the business of the PSC and submit a report to parliament.
A decision would also be made on whether the proposal is to be subjected to a debate in the House.
The government proposed the formation of the PSC stating that a unique opportunity has arisen for the people to unite and work together as one nation towards the economic, social and political development of the nation and its citizens.
