Ports and Shipping Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe, speaking at the Constitutional Assembly in Parliament today, noted the importance of devolving powers to the provinces under the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
He said that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has expressed its views on the proposed Constitution.
The SLFP member said that there is a broad agreement on the need to devolve powers to the provinces.
However he noted that devolution of powers must not go beyond the 13th Amendment to the Constitution. (Colombo Gazette)
