Cabinet meets after a lapse of one week

The Cabinet, which did not meet last week following a dispute with President Maithripala Sirisena over the Parliament Select Committee (PSC), met today.

President Maithripala Sirisena chaired the cabinet meeting as usual when it met today.

Several cabinet papers were passed and it was noted that cabinet will meet again next week.

Cabinet did not meet last week after the President had objected to the PSC summoning defence officers to be questioned in front of the media.

The President had said he will not chair the cabinet meeting until the decision to summon security officers is reversed. (Colombo Gazette)
