The Sri Lankan parliament is to meet next Tuesday as its first floor of the complex is submerged in flood water due to torrential rains. Speaker Chamal Rajapakse announced the postponement of the parliament sitting after he convened the parliament for five minutes by entering parliament complex in a boat.

Parliament officials said the ground floor of the building which sits in an island in the Diyawanna Oya is under three-feet of water after the heaviest rains in 18 years that continued since Wednesday night.
