TISL concerned by perversion of PC Election Act


TISL concerned by perversion of PC Election Act

Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) says that it is alarmed by the lack of consultation and procedure adopted in the passage of the Provincial Councils Elections (Amendment) Act. 

In making substantial committee stage amendments, a key democratic check has been sidestepped as there is no opportunity to assess the constitutional conformity of the amendments, a statement said.

TISL said it is of the position that committee stage amendments should only be made insofar as the Standing Orders of parliament permit them.
