SL Parliament to be dissolved this week: Maithiripala Sirisena

[TamilNet, Sunday, 07 February 2010, 11:46 GMT]
Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa would be dissolving the parliament this week on his return from Russia, said Maithripala Sirisena, a Senior Minister in the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government Sunday to media. The term of office of the current parliament ends on April 22. He further said his government hopes to have a 'closer understanding' with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in the forthcoming general election to 'uplift' the Northern and Eastern provinces. However he said that does not mean that the UPFA government would accept any condition by the TNA.

The government would seek two-third majority in the new parliament to change the constitution, he added.

Mr.Maithiripala Sirisena is the General Secretary of the main constituent Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) of the ruling UPFA.
