Government nominates seven members to Parliament Select Committee

The Government has nominated seven members to 12 member Parliament Select Committee.

The United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) has nominated Dinesh Gunawardena, S.B. Dissanayake, Nimal Siripala de Silva, Mahinda Samarasinghe, Wimal Weerawansa, Thilanga Sumathipala and Udaya Gammanpila to the Select Committee.

However the United National Party had earlier said that the UPFA cannot appoint the highest number of members to the Parliament Select Committee as it is not recognised in Parliament as the Government.
