Public must hold their MPs responsible for abuse of the Urgent Bills provision
Recognizing the destructive impact on democratic governance in Sri Lanka from Urgent Bills and in light of the structure of democratic rights guaranteed by Article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, TISL takes the position that the voting public of Sri Lanka must hold their MPs responsible for their acquiescence to the abuse of the Urgent Bills provision,
Further public express their democratic rights through direct lobbying of their MP, in person, by letter and by phone and demand accountability for those MPs that cross the aisle without seeking approval of their constituents.
Above TISL position on Urgent Bills is highlighted in position paper issued recently.
