By Sujeeva Nivunhella in London

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya is scheduled to attend the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Executive Committee Meeting and 61st General Assembly in London this week.

The event will be held from September 30 to October 6. The Speaker will be accompanied by W. M. N. P. Iddawela, Deputy Secretary General of Parliament.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association was established in 1911. Its role is to promote the advancement of parliamentary democracy and to identify benchmarks of good governance and implement the enduring values of the Commonwealth.

The 61st Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference was expected to be held in Islamabad, Pakistan from September 30 to October 8. However, due to Pakistan’s inability to invite one of CPA’s eligible branch members, Jammu and Kashmir branch led to the conference venue being changed from Islamabad to London.
