Colombo, 21 January, ( The government says majority of the political parties of the All Party Conference have agreed upon a political settlement, which gives more powers to relevant Provincial Councils.

In a media briefing, Government legislator Dr.Rajitha Senaratne said the APRC would submit its report to the President Mahinda Rajapakse on Wednesday.

However the Democratic Group of the United National Party regrets that the Party has not submitted its proposals to the All-Party Representative Committee so far.

The group holds the view that a political package to resolve the northeast conflict should be presented along with the ceasefire agreement which was abrogated recently.
