Attention drawn to extending term of office of Independent Commissions

The Constitutional Council has drawn its attention to extending the term of office of Independent Commissions which are operating efficiently.
Accordingly the age limit of members of the Commission is expected to be increased up to 80 years. The Constitutional Council said that a final decision will be reached after discussing the matter with the President.
The Constitutional Council met at the Parliamentary Complex under the patronage of Speaker Karu Jayasuriya. Discussions centred at length on the appointment of judges to fill vacancies in the Supreme Court and the Appeals Court.
The nod was granted for two judges of the Supreme Court.
