Debate on constitution postponed

Sri Lanka's Constitutional Assembly debate was postponed after the ten MPs who were tasked with discussing the Interim Report of the Constitutional Assembly failed to arrive. 

The debate was scheduled to take place on Monday, reported Ceylon Today.

It has been postponed until the third week of January 2018. 

The Interim Report was initially debated in October amid criticism from Sinhala political groups, Buddhist clergy, military personnel and the Sri Lankan Bar Association regarding the process of formulating a new constitution, arguing that it will pave the way for federalism.
