The Supreme Court would inform its opinion to the President and the speaker tomorrow whether the Right to Information Bill and the National Audit Bill are constitutional.

Accordingly, a panel of three member Supreme Court Judges presided by Chief Justice K. Sripavan were appointed to consider this issue.

Other members of this panel of judges are Supreme Court Judge Rohini Marasinghe and Supreme Court Judge Priyantha Jayewardene.
