By: Isuru Parakrama

Colombo (LNW): Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena adjourned today’s (20) Parliament sitting till tomorrow (22) 9.30 am following the growing protest staged by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MPs inside the Chambers demanding the holding of the Local Government Election, which the government supposedly seeks for postponement.

During today’s Parliament sitting, Chief Opposition Whip and SJB MP Lakshman Kiriella demanded that a Party Leaders’ meeting be convened to address the proposed postponement of the LG Polls, to which Speaker Abeywardena responded saying that a Party Leaders’ meeting will be convened today at 2 pm.

Despite the Speaker’s response, MPs of all Opposition parties stood up and demanded that the LG Polls be held as declared, hence the heat being uncontrollable compelling Abeywardena to adjourn the sitting.
