COLOMBO (News 1st) – Members of the Joint Opposition are yet to reach a final decision on whether to function as independent MPs in Parliament.

A discussion on the matter was held on Tuesday (Aug 14th), at the residence of the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Previously it was stated that a final decision on becoming independent in parliament will be taken at the meeting held yesterday.

However, no decision on the matter was reached last night. During the discussions, it was also agreed to appoint a committee headed by Professor G.L. Peris to inquire into the legal aspects of becoming independent MPs in parliament.

Members of the Joint Opposition, who were elected to Parliament under the UPFA ticket, are considering becoming independent MPs following another failed attempt at securing the position of Opposition Leader.
