Mahinda seeks mandate to introduce new Constitution

By Indika Sri Aravinda

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) will seek a mandate at the upcoming Parliamentary election to introduce a new Constitution.

Speaking at an event in Kohuwala today, Rajapaksa said that the SLPP is seeking a 2/3rd majority in Parliament to introduce the new Constitution.

He said that the present Constitution has seen several changes, the last being the 19th Amendment.

Rajapaksa said that the SLPP will not look to bring about more changes to the existing Constitution but instead introduce a completely new Constitution.

The former Government had also sought to introduce a new Constitution and initiated a process which lasted for several years.

However the process never reached a final conclusion as it did not have the full support of Parliament. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. For who’s benefit. People are very satisfied with the Present set up . Moreover you just have a few years more to serve the public if you are fit enough to do so. People will not want unlimited period for a president

  2. Dear Old Man,
    You and your ‘Fraudsters’ were given the opportunity to abolish the ‘Executive Presidency’ many instances if you wished & are a genuine ‘Sri Lankan’ patriots. Sorry, you have proved to the nation that you are only a selfish, cunning, murderous, corrupt………..mega fraudster cum liar & an alcoholic. The present day younger generation are wise and not easily gullible by your never ending lies and deceitful statements. Everything (99.999999%) in this material world which goes up has to come down with just one exception if you have the faintest idea what it is. “සියළු සංස්කාරයෝ නැසෙන සුලුය”. You are so very close to reaching that point, so let me ask you a simple but a very important question. Do you know where you are going to? it’s best if you start planning for that event and I am sure it’s not going to be a pleasant experience in your case. ” Appamado Amatha Padam”
    Only you will know.
