The Collective of parties representing the minority communities state that the 20th Constitutional Amendment for electoral reforms, should be implemented in a manner which would mete out justice for all races, religions and party supporters.
A media briefing of the representatives of minority parties was convened at Naga Vihara in Kotte today, under the patronage of Venerable Maduluwawe Sobhitha Thera.
Expressing his views further, Sobhitha Thera said that if everyone cannot agree, instead of passing the 20th amendment, the parliament should be dissolved and a General Election should be held.
Joining the same media briefing, SLMC leader Rauf Hakeem stated that the key proposal presented by the minority parties was rejected by the two main political parties.
Leader of All Island People’s Congress Minister Rishard Badiudeen, General Secretary of Lanka Samasamaja Party Professor Tissa Vitharana, Leader of Tamil Progressive Alliance Provincial councillor Mano Ganesan, and Leader of United Socialist Party Siritunga Jayasuriya also attended the media briefing.
