President, PM to revive cohabitation
President Chandrika Kumaratunga and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will meet early January to discuss ways of reviving the co-habitation process.

The meeting will take place after Mr. Wickremesinghe returns from a tour to the far East and it comes in the wake of President Kumaratunga calling for the appointment of a committee to strengthen the cohabitation process and the Prime Minister agreeing, a spokesman for the Prime Minister's office said.

On Friday, the Prime Minister discussed the issue with former Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar once again. The move comes after LTTE chief negotiator Anton Balasingham declared in Oslo early that the government should ensure it had the majority in parliament to pass necessary constitutional amendments to implement decisions taken at the peace talks.
