In addition, a special discussion of the independent groups is scheduled for this evening and tomorrow.
It is said that the President has also expressed his willingness to form an all-party government based on the current political turmoil.
However, political sources said that some members representing the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna have expressed their opposition to this.
However, the next parliamentary session is scheduled to be held on the 3rd of May. It is reported that a new Deputy Speaker will be appointed on this day.
Mr. Ranjith Siyambalapitiya, who had served as the Deputy Speaker, had ended his duties in that position on April 30.
Accordingly, two names have already been proposed for the post of Deputy Speaker and a secret ballot will be held to elect a Member of Parliament for that post, according to political sources.
This secret ballot is also being touted by some as an opportunity to test the power of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna.
