The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says that it would no longer participate in the National Executive Council.
Speaking at an event in Anuradhapura, JVP leader MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that the national executive council has not convened since April 19.
The National Executive Council was set up, inclusive of representatives of parties represented in Parliament as well as Civil Society organizations, to strengthen democracy following the victory of Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential polls in January.
The council had discussed the necessary reforms proposed in Sri Lankan President’s 100-day plan and how best to implement them during its previous sessions.
