    Peace lover Wednesday, 22 May 2013 06:55 AM

    Ahhh, So what we expected is going to come. No Presidential or General Election for the Next 25Years. Only the President's (MR's) family can become Prime Ministers and Presidents. Wait and See, if I am Wrong....

    Dear President,
    There was no PSC proposal, when implemeting the 13th ammendment forcefully.

    Jack Wednesday, 22 May 2013 07:04 AM

    But we can change the Parliment !

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 22 May 2013 07:09 AM

    PSC can only propose but who will implement? Is it similar to the bogus commissions such as APRC, LLRC?

    Seriously Wednesday, 22 May 2013 11:31 AM

    Exactly !! Seriously, who runs the PSC??

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 22 May 2013 11:36 AM

    well said.

    Jay Wednesday, 22 May 2013 08:30 AM

    Did you consult the PSC when you did the 18th Amendment? Please don't think we are ALL fools. Some are, but not all.

    GSK Wednesday, 22 May 2013 08:27 AM

    so who extended the your terms from 12 years to unlimited??

    Lankashantha Wednesday, 22 May 2013 11:40 AM

    First solve our daily living problem of food, electricity, gas, education and medical facility.

    sihala sura Thursday, 23 May 2013 04:09 AM

    never,it's only a daylight dream.

    mail_guy Wednesday, 22 May 2013 08:36 AM

    First implement the 13th amendment, we can talk about the rest later.

    Bonggo Wednesday, 22 May 2013 11:47 AM

    It is not a judgement, it is a proposal. This means that only PSC can propose changes. The Parliament will approve with a 2/3 majority vote.

    Without 2/3 majority no changes could be done to the Constitution.

    I think the Government is considering to bring a brand new Constitution.

    Bonggo Wednesday, 22 May 2013 11:50 AM

    PSC was established under the 18th Amendment. So there was no chance of consulting it at that time !!!

    canada kumar Thursday, 23 May 2013 04:24 AM

    PSC=PRESIDENT SECURITY COUNCIL???????

    Cobra Thursday, 23 May 2013 12:55 AM

    Yes, but who owns the PSC?

    Conrad Thursday, 23 May 2013 08:07 AM

    There is no constitution. So even if there is a new one it will make no difference.

    Aruna Thursday, 23 May 2013 04:33 AM

    well said. Sir.. 505

    renu Wednesday, 22 May 2013 08:56 AM

    The Can be there till his PSA levels goes beyond 8.0

    shaqi Thursday, 23 May 2013 04:38 AM

    Wait and see, the same thing happened in Libya, will happen in Sri lanka too very soon.

    GC Wednesday, 22 May 2013 09:46 AM

    I thought judgments like this are given by the Supreme Court..

    . Amila.G Wednesday, 22 May 2013 09:45 AM

    Mr President , the cookie crumbles according to your wimps and fancies what ever commission you call , every one knows but no mussel to change .

    Suq Madique Wednesday, 22 May 2013 09:51 AM

    Ya, we all know PSC is controlled by MR so in other words only he can change the constitution.
