However, the SLFP was agreeable to making legal provisions for accelerating the development process while opposing the creation of the super ministry, Minister Weerakkody said.

The SLFP dissidents in the Joint Opposition have also vowed to defeat the moves being made to vest what they call draconian powers in a single minister.
