PM admits new Constitution still a long way ahead

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today admitted that a new Constitution for Sri Lanka is still a long way ahead.

Speaking at an event in Galle today the Prime Minister said that various opinions have been expressed over the reports on the new Constitution submitted to Parliament so far.

However he said that what has been submitted are only proposals and a draft of the Constitution itself has not been prepared.

Wickremesinghe also said that he is not sure if the new Constitution will obtain 2/3rd majority support in Parliament.

He said that if the new Constitution does not get 2/3rd majority then it will not be passed.

The Prime Minister also insisted that there was no move to divide the country through the new Constitution. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. getting more than 150 votes is difficult. Working out the statistics it is essential that TNA , Muslin parties Up Country Tamil Votes JVP and Hela Urumaya needed. Assuming support from 30 votes from these parties are needed the balance little more than 120 votes s are n may have to come from UNP, Chandrasekhar supporters and SLFP . Ranil has to work on this figure He can assume that SLPP m EPDP and few independents will not support him

  2. First and foremost try to eliminate mosquitoes, before creating a new constitution or running an airlines with profits. You are not wonder of Asia but ass of Asia. Stop aiming high and achieving nothing. You must aim small things to accomplish such as eliminating mosquitoes.
