PM says Parliament will go live on TV

srilanka_parliament-8Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says Parliament proceedings will be broadcast live on television from next year.

He said that the relevant authorities are looking into broadcasting Parliament proceedings live and this will somehow be done from next year.

The Prime Minister said that the public will then be able to know who is attending Parliament and who is not.

He said that Parliamentarians must not give priority for other work and put attending Parliament as least important.

Speaking at a workshop in Parliament today, the Prime Minister said that Parliamentarians should also allocate time to meet the public on days other than when Parliament convenes.

He said that if Parliamentarians are unable to attend Parliament then the best place for them is the library. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. THE PRIME MINISTER AND THE PRESIDENT CONSTANTLY EXPRESS IDIOTIC OVERWHELMING HOPES OF CONTINUING THE GOVT FOR A FULL LIFE OF YEARS, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY WHAT WEALSO WISH. BUT PREDICTING FROM THE LOPSIDED GOVERNANCE OW PRVAILING NAD RTHE PAST HISTORY OF BOTH SIRIMA AND RANIL,
    IT IS IN VERY MUCH IN DOUBT, THE GOVT COULD
    LAST AT LEAST 2 YEARS, DURING WHICH PEIOD ALL THE STAKEHOLDERS WILL COLLECT THEIR SPOILS,PERKS, PRIVILEGES AND NOT MIND WHAT HAPPENDS TO THE HELPLESS PEOPLE.UNLESS THOSE CONCERNED GUARD THEIR ITCHING MOUTHS, HE CARAVAN WILL GO GET STRUCK UNDER THE BRIDGE. NOT ONLY MAHINDA BUT ORDINARY PEOPLE WHO ARE THE REAL POWER NOT PM/PRES ARE NOW INTELLIGENTLY ACTIVE AND WILL TOPPLE ANY GOVT.IF THEY PLAY TRUANT.
