Harsha appointed COPF chairman

Opposition MP Dr. Harsha de Silva has been appointed chairman of the Committee on Public Finance (COPF).

The President's Media Division said that the SJB MP was appointed on the recommendation of President Ranil Wickremesinghe.

"Standing orders should be followed when appointing chairmen of committees and advisory bodies. According to the existing standards, the chairmanship of the Committee on Public Finance Committee should be offered to members of the opposition. Harsha de Silva’s name and the names of several other members were proposed for this purpose. MP Mayantha Dissanayake has resigned as chairman. If the opposition suggests it, MP Harsha de Silva should be appointed head of the Committee on Public Finance. The IMF agreement was approved by Parliament. The newly appointed chairman should conduct himself appropriately," President Wickremesinghe said.
