Chief Prelates decide no need for a new Constitution

The Chief Prelates of the three main Buddhist chapters today decided there is no need for a new Constitution in Sri Lanka.

The Chief Prelates reached the decision following a discussion held this evening.

The decision puts a major barricade to Government efforts to draft a new Constitution which will include electoral reforms and a political solution to the Tamil issue.

Parliament has already commenced the process of drafting a new Constitution or amending the existing one.

Making changes to the current Constitution was an election pledge of President Maithripala Sirisena. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. These people cant even look after their own order, I mean look at the thugs that enter the yellow robes today. How can they talk about the nation. Enough is enough. For over 50 years they have interfered in politics, it left the nation in a corrupt third world state, and let any thug who shouts sinhala as a Buddhist.

  2. Truth has Spoken. tamil right is just a side kick stuff that the muslim plays with.
    As long as the foreign faith muslim sleeps with the sinhala politicians of all colours the economy will never prosper and the women will be sold to the arabs at any price.
