Sept 18, Colombo: The next meeting of the five-member committee appointed to review make recommendations to hold provincial council elections is scheduled to meet again on the 20th of this month.

The meeting is to be held under the leadership of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and with participation of all political party leaders.

The first meeting of the committee was held on the 7th under the patronage of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at the Temple Trees.

During the meeting, the committee discussed the actions needed to be taken to expedite making the recommendations and presenting the report in parliament.

It was also decided to obtain observations and suggestions from all political parties represented in the Parliament.
