He said a request had been made in a letter to CPA to explain and reveal the denial of due privileges to the Members of the Joint Opposition.


“The JO will inform the delegation, especially about the inadequate time allowed for the JO members, to express their views in Parliament,” he said.


He said that 820 minutes was allocated to 12 TNA and JVP members, while only 210 minutes was given to 53 JO members during the Parliamentary debate on the new Constitution.
