May 08, Colombo: The parliament of Sri Lanka will debate the no-confidence motion against the government on May 20 and 21.

The no-confidence motion against the government was presented to parliament by the main opposition United National Party (UNP).

The dates to debate the no-confidence motion were reportedly decided at the party leaders' meeting in parliament.

The UNP presented a no-confidence motion against the government a few months earlier claiming there was a lack of confidence in the government's ability to safeguard the well-being of the citizens of the country.

The UNP has stated that the government had no way of ensuring the well-being of the people due to the frequent illegal alcohol rackets and the excessive amounts of narcotics entering the country.
