The debate on the no-confidence motion which started Tuesday, will be continued today. After the debate, the vote on the no-confidence motion is scheduled to take place at 6 pm.

JVP MP Bimal Ratnayake said they expect the support of all anti-government parliamentarians to pass the no-confidence motion.
