Joint Opposition MP Dallas Allahapperuma yesterday alleged that the government had not granted them a debate over the delay of the provincial council elections for nearly nine months.   


He told parliament that the joint opposition had requested in writing for a debate on the matter but it had not been granted so far. Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said matters related to the PC election would be discussed at the party leaders’ meeting on Thursday. “The subject minister will discuss the matter with the President and the Prime Minister and will inform their decision at the party leaders meeting,” he said.
