Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena has requested President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to summon Parliament immediately.
He made the request in light of the mob violence reported around the country.
Parliament was scheduled to originally meet on 17th May.
However, with violence breaking out across the country yesterday and today and also with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa resigning, the Speaker has requested the President to summon Parliament for an urgent session. (Colombo Gazette)
