The All Party Meeting called by President Maithripala Sirisena to discuss the current political developments was held with friendly and cordial manner at the Presidential Secretariat today (18) and it lasted more than 2 hours, stated President’s Media Division.

There was an agreement at the meeting that the party leaders meeting, scheduled for tomorrow should decide the future proceedings of the Parliament and the Parliamentary session should be conducted peacefully and without any untoward acts.

The President informed everybody who attended the meeting that he could take a decision on the No Confidence Motion against the government only if a vote is taken by name of the Members or by electronic voting.

He pointed out that it would be the most accepted method of voting system by the intellectuals and the public of the country as well as internationally. He also stressed the need for adhering to the standing orders without resorting to voice vote which is not transparent, while voting on an important motion to change the government.

All the political parties except the JVP attended the meeting and the President informed the meeting that the JVP had intimated to him that they would not attend.
