Sampanthan nominated to Constitutional Council yesterday

TNA Leader R.Sampanthan’s name has been nominated to the Constitutional Council to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of former Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa.

The CC chaired by Speaker Karu Jayasuriya met at the Parliament complex yesterday.

Former Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa was appointed to the CC in October 2018 with the agreement between Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and then Opposition Leader R.Sampanthan.

He resigned after former President Mahinda Rajapaksa became the Opposition Leader and thereby an ex-officio member of the CC.
