Due to the economic crisis in Sri Lanka, the situation has gone from bad to worse. In such a situation, dissatisfaction is increasing among the citizens of the country. Meanwhile, PM Ranil Wickremesinghe said that 5 finance committees and 10 inspection committees will be appointed to deal with the economic and political crisis. Wickremesinghe said that Public Finance Committee, Accounts Committee and Public Enterprises Committee would be constituted.
The new Sri Lankan PM said in a special statement, ten oversight committees reporting to Parliament on policies would be appointed. Parliament should act on the recommendations of these committees. “The youth are demanding a change in the existing system. They also want to know the current issues. Therefore, I propose to appoint four youth representatives in each of these 15 committees,” he said.
Wickremesinghe also stressed on the need to change the structure of Parliament. In an official statement, he called for the 21st Amendment to the Constitution to make the President and Cabinet accountable to Parliament. He said, “We propose a National Council. A committee consisting of the President, Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition and leaders of major parties is called the National Council.
About the decisions of the cabinet,” the Sri Lankan PM said, adding that the national council can also talk about the policies of the country. At present Sri Lanka is facing an unprecedented economic crisis and political crisis. For months, massive protests have been taking place across the country for the removal of former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
