Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says there is wide consensus for devolution of powers within a united Sri Lanka.
A statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office today quoted Wickremesinghe as saying that steps must be taken to ensure the country is not divided.
He expressed these views while speaking to journalists at the Uthayan newspaper office in Jaffna.
The Prime Minister said that both Parliament and the Sri Lankan public will need to make a final decision on Constitutional reforms.
A process to introduce a new Constitution was launched by the current Government but the process eventually stalled.
The Prime Minister said that majority support must be obtained to take the Constitution reforms process forward.
He said that if the United National Front wins the Presidential election it will continue the Constitutional reforms process. (Colombo Gazette)
