Jan 05, Colombo: Ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) is yet to reach a final decision on the party's stance on the controversial Divi Neguma Bill.

The SLMC High Command met last evening and discussed the bill at length till late last night.

SLMC sources told ColomboPage that the party is yet to reach a final decision on its stance on the Divi Neguma Bill when it is taken up in parliament next week for approval.

Another round of discussion on the matter is to take place at tomorrow's High Command meeting.

A majority of the SLMC members have expressed concerns over the bill since it interfered with subjects vested with the provincial councils under the 13th Amendment.

The SLMC at its convention on December 29th passed resolutions saying that powers vested with the provincial councils should be further increased and that the party would oppose any move to undermine the provincial council system.
