May 14, 2022 1:01:48 PM - colombogazette.com

The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) has nominated MP Rohini Kavirathna for the post of Parliament Deputy Speaker.

SJB Leader Sajith Premadasa said that Kavirathna, a strong activist of Women’s and Children’s rights will be their nominee for the post of Deputy Speaker.

Earlier, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had proposed that a female MP be nominated for the post.

He had urged Parliament to reach a consensus on the appointment of a Deputy Speaker.

The post of Deputy Speaker became vacant after former Deputy Speaker Ranjith Siyambalapitiya resigned from his post. (Colombo Gazette)
