Minister Susil Premajayantha says that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe agreed to the proposals made by the SLFP with regard to the new Constitution.

President Maithripala Sirisena, in his capacity as the chairman of the party appointed a committee to decide the stance of the SLFP over the Premier’s proposal to set up a new Constitution.

Minister Premajayantha stated that the Premier has agreed to the nine amendments proposed by the SLFP.

 He also said that the abolishing of the Executive Presidency and amending the parliament election system have been given priority in the party proposals.

SLFP has already handed over its proposals to the Speaker.

Meanwhile the JVP says that different political camps seem to be using the new Constitution to hide their political incompetence.  Addressing a media conference held in Colombo today, party leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake further described the situation.

He further said that all political parties that represent parliament should be given equal opportunity in the new Constitution.

Meanwhile Samajawadi Janatha Peramuna says that it will not object to the new Constitution in the event it ensures social dignity and freedom to all communities.

Addressing a media conference held in Colombo, MP Chandrasiri Gajadheera further expressed his views on the matter.

At the same time, addressing another media conference, Pivituru Hela Urumaya leader and MP Udaya Gammanpila said that the amendments to the Constitution should be brought as 20, 21 and 22nd  Amendments to abolish the Executive Presidency, Electoral system and devolution of power.
