The priority of the new United Peoples Freedom Alliance government formed after the April 8 General election will be to abolish Executive presidency, the government said today.


According to the government, a series of constitutional amendments will also be introduced that will strengthen parliamentary powers and make the 17th amendment more effective among other constitutional measures. (S.A.J)

    A direct contradiction with the promises of the Presidential election.

    Please do not treat the people of Sri Lanka like a joke.

    All these till the elections and then will come the excuses why they cannot do - like foreign conspiracies & opposition not co-operating et al.

    Sunday, 28 March 2010 08:09 AM

    Yes ,we know that the executive pres. is the main obstacle to the 17th amendment! Hehehehe...

    Sunday, 28 March 2010 08:09 AM

    And pigs will fly..

    Sunday, 28 March 2010 08:10 AM

    The naked truth is that someone wants to be in power until death!!

    Sunday, 28 March 2010 09:00 AM

    Another a broad day light lie by the ruling family party. Maybe at the end of the next parliement term, which will co-incide with almost the end of the next presidential term so that MR could be the king forever.

    Sunday, 28 March 2010 09:06 AM

    Why the government waiting so long to implement the 17th amendment? This is also an election gimmick to get the 2/3 majority.

    Sunday, 28 March 2010 09:10 AM

    Even believe you devil dont believe present government
