A three-day training will be given to all first-time Members of the Parliament, says State Minister Sisira Jayakody.

He mentioned this to the media following the first parliamentary group meeting of the ruling party held yesterday (19).

Jayakody said that anti-democratic actions were unnecessary as the next parliament is democratic.

Meanwhile, first-time MP Madura Vithanage attended the inaugural session of the Ninth Parliament via a boat.

He rode a boat across the Diyawanna Lake from his house to the Parliament this morning (20).

Vithanage was elected to the parliament at General Election with 70,205 preferential votes from Colombo District.
