Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa says a new government will introduce laws making it mandatory to present agreements with regard to state properties in parliament before signing them. Speaking at a forum of professionals in Colombo, Mr. Rajapaksa said the members of the previous Yahapalana Government had signed contracts to handover the Eastern Container Terminal at the Colombo Port to India since it already leased out the Hambantota Port to China. The premier further stated that, if the Yahapalana Government remained in power for another term, nothing would have been left in the country. Therefore, he will introduce laws making it mandatory to submit agreements with regard to state properties in parliament before signing them.
