President Maithripala Sirisena says that a change in the constitution is necessary, but such a change should be aimed at strengthening parliament, not to achieve other sinister ambitions.

He was speaking at a religious ceremony held at Olaboduwa Sri Jayawardana-ramaya in Horana yesterday.

The President said that certain factions are making statements about a new constitution but he has neither received a copy of such a constitution nor has he been made aware of such.

He also stated that talking about a new constitution upsets the Sinhala Buddhist population in the south, on one hand and, on the other, it deceives the people of the North.
