The Catholic Council's National Director for Social Communication Father Benedict Joseph has dubbed the bill presented before parliament by Presidents Council Wijedasa Rajapaksa which proscribes clergy from contesting in elections

as judicious.

Father Benedict notes that politicians should be left to engage in politics while clergy should engage in instilling good morals in persons.

Meanwhile the JHU urges the UNP to opine on its official stance regarding the bill which was presented to parliament by President's council Wijesdasa Rajapaksa.

This was the response filed by National Organiser of the UNP Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe in this regard.
