Govt inches closer to two thirds

Aug 5, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
he Government inched closer to securing a Two Thirds majority in Parliament yesterday after two UNP members crossed over to the ruling party. MPs Prabha Ganeshan and P Digambaram made the symbolic walk across the well of the House amidst howls of protest from UNP MPs and applause from Government members. The crossovers brought the total number of Government members to 145, just five short of the 150 needed for a Two Thirds majority in the 225 member Legislature.   www.dailynews.lk/2010/08/06/pol01.asp
