Cabinet Spokesperson, Minister Keheliya Rambukwella has said the Advisory Council will come under the purview of the Law and Order Ministry and will deal with issues related to the implementation of existing laws.

The Council will help the President by providing expert knowledge to compile policies and plans.

The Minister told the media that the Advisory Council was established to deal with violations of law and order which are on the rise due to increasing social problems and religious disharmony in the country.

The Council will not be involved in reforming any law, but would only advise the President.
