Chairman of the Public Representations Committee on Constitutional Reforms Lal Wijenayake says that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the JVP have not submitted proposals for the new constitution.

He further noted that despite requesting the JVP to submit proposals on two previous occasions, no response have been made pertaining to the matter so far.

The Public Representations committee on Constitutional Reforms was initiated on the 18th of January this year.

It was noted that the final report, which will be prepared after gathering public opinion from across the island, is to be handed over to the President and the Constitutional Reforms Committee.

However, expressing his views further, Chairman of the Committee Lal Wijenayake stated that the handing over of the final report will be further delayed.

Elaborating his views, Lal Wijenayake also stated that the committee has enquired the opinion from the political parties in the North, and the TNA has voiced their opinion with regard to a Federal government.
