Sri Lanka Muslim Congress Parliamentarians who voted in favour of the 20th Amendment to the Constitution have been informed to show cause for their decision.

Consequent to the Samagi Jana Balawegaya Parliamentary group meeting, leader of Sri Lanka Muslim Congress Rauff Hakeem, summoned its parliamentary group for a meeting at his residence last evening.

After a lengthy discussion on matters relating to vote on the 20th Amendment, it was decided for SLMC MPs, who voted in favour of the amendment, to explain their position to the High Command of the Party, enabling the party to take further steps on the matter.

The Party Leader also informed the High command must meet at the earliest possible date, to deliberate the issue further.
