Highways and Investment Promotion Deputy Minister Eran Wickramarathna stated during a media conference held in Colombo today, that the government is expecting the support of all parliamentarians to pass the 19th Amendment.

Meanwhile, Frontline Socialist Party stated that the 19th Amendment is expected to abolish only the excessive powers vested in the President under the 18th Amendment.
