Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe presented to parliament today five steering committee reports with regard to the proposed Constitution.

Later, during the debate, Premier Wickremesinghe stated that what he presented today was not the new constitution draft bill.

At that juncture, Opposition Leader, Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the current government does not have the right to discuss a new constitution.

He then challenged the premier to call for a general election and put forward the proposals before  voters.

At that moment, TNA Leader, R Sampandan said that the country is in need of a  new constitution.

Meanwhile, JVP leader, Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that there is no consensus even within the steering committees.
