Parliament is convening on February 6 to debate the Bond commission report.

The Prime Minister has sent a letter to Speaker with regard to convening the Parliament on that day, Deputy Secretary of Parliament Neil Iddawela told News 1st.

Previously the Parliament was set to convene after the Local Government Election which is on February 10.
