TNA supports the new constitution

Tuesday, 10 January 2017 - 7:50


Reports state that the Tamil National alliance will continue to support the ongoing process to draft a new constitution for Sri Lanka despite internal dissensions.

The TNA, which met twice last week, decided to accept leader R. Sampanthan’s advice, that despite doubts about getting a favourable outcome from the constitution-making process, the process should be supported because there is no alternative.

Sampanthan’s plea for cooperation also rested on the hope that the personal and explicit commitment of President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to promoting ethnic reconciliation through appropriate constitutional provisions would stay through the process and influence the final outcome.
