Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardene adjourned Parliament until 9.30 a.m. tomorrow due to protests by opposition parties in Parliament demanding local government elections.

Opposition MPs staged a protest inside the House well, shouting slogans and demanding that the local government election be held as planned.

“We want the election.” “Diyawu Diyawu Chande Diyawu,” they shouted, displaying placards.
