Even the presence of opposition MP’s are somewhat the same. But during the other parliamentary sittings, it is “NEARLY EMPTY”.

Excellency Sir, you should bring about a “CHANGE” to this “bad parliamentary culture” please. 

MP’s who do not attend parliament during sessions should be withheld their “day’s wage/salary/allowance” as a penalty/punishment for not being present in the chambers.

please. That should NOT mean that they can come, mark present and then leave the chambers. They should be in attendence throughout the sessions.

The Hon. Speaker of the House should be adviced to follow the “rule of sitting in their allocated seats” during sessions and not to take seats behind prominent ministers or other parliamentarians just to been seen on the TV screens during broadcasted/aired. 

The “DISCIPLINED PRACTICES” of seating procedures practiced in other countries, especially in the West, should become a “parliamentary norm” in our “MAATHRUBOOMIYA”  as well, Your Excellency.
