The State of Emergency is in force since 12 August 2005. Every month it is being extend with the approval of the parliament. Opposition parties including the main opposition United National Party (UNP) and Democratic National Alliance (DNA) led by Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) have decided to oppose the emergency extension motion.

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) would also vote against the extension motion, political sources said.

The committee stage discussion of the 2010 budget is to begin Monday when the parliament convenes in the morning.
