Powers of the Provincial Councils

The Sri Lankan government plan to submit a
proposal to the cabinet this week regarding the amendment of several
powers of the Provincial Councils, government news sources said.

The amendment will withdraw the provisions that enable the Provincial Councils to merge.

It will also withdraw the provisions that the nationally important bills
needed to be passed in all Provincial Councils. Instead, the amendments
will be brought so that such a bill will be sufficient to be passed in
majority of Provincial Councils.

However, the proposals of certain government coalition parties to take
back the land and police powers of the Provincial Councils have not been
included in the government’s proposals, government news sources said.

Sources further said that the government has planned to appeal for a
definition of the land powers from the Provincial Councils.
