  1. “According to the newly introduced 19th amendment to the Constitution, a Sri Lankan Citizen holding citizenship status in another country cannot hold a seat in the legislature.”

    This is a foolish policy. If the foreign power wants to do something through a local politician they can easily buy a local politician by giving lots of money through NGOs. There is no need for the foreign powers to find one of their citizens who has a seat in the legislature. I believe that bribing a dual citizenship is harder than local politicians. Therefore, I conclude that this policy will isolate hardworking, honest and wise Sri Lankans; but a good policy for uneducated and dishonest local politicians.

  2. The Duel rule was introduced to stop Gota and becoming a member of Parliament. Now Yahapalana Government is proved to to corrupt than many recent governments. So what is the big deal on Geetha who has no value in Parliament.
