National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader and Minister Wimal Weerawansa said though the government has not reached a decision on the13th Amendment, his party wanted it repealed.

He was responding to a question asked by a journalist that Cabinet spokesman and Minister Keheliya Rambukwella had at a Cabinet briefing said the government had not taken a decision on the 13th Amendment.

“We want the 13th amendment to be repealed. We want to express our stance and to urge the government to realize the futility of the amendment,” Minister Weerawansa said.

Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) Secretary General and Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka, who also spoke at the news conference stressed that the 13th amendment should be done away with. “The 13th amendment was forced upon Sri Lanka on the assurance that the Tamil rebel groups would be disarmed but that never happened and its very purpose no longer exists today.” (Sarasi Paranamanna) (Pix by Kithsiri de Mel)

    these are our OBAMAs

    patriot Wednesday, 07 November 2012 04:49 PM

    Why not go for a fasting until 13A repealed?

    Ahmad Wednesday, 07 November 2012 04:55 PM

    Better Patali spend time on improving CEB performance and settle CPC bills instead of instigating communalism.

    Ruhunu Kolla Wednesday, 07 November 2012 05:04 PM

    In that case why don't both of you resign, that would do more good to the country than repelling 13A!

    Sneaky and Stealthy Wednesday, 07 November 2012 05:07 PM

    Uneducated fellow shouting. At least listen to the Obama victory speech. What a difference.

    dass Wednesday, 07 November 2012 05:52 PM

    people will learn what to repeal and who to keep sooner or later.

    Andrew Pitugala Wednesday, 07 November 2012 05:52 PM

    One of the Dramas. The actors are familier. Two Parties who have no standing of their own have to cling on to the Satakaya.

    Ellison Wednesday, 07 November 2012 05:54 PM

    If the 13a is so detrimental to the Country, why did our president promise 13a Plus ??

    Kristopher Thursday, 08 November 2012 07:22 AM

    These are the guy's who is brining this country to its knees by spreading hatred and poisoning the people's minds.

    Commenting on Wiml's statement is wasting our time and effort. Basically he look like a human, but he has not evolved enough to think like a human.

    zavahir Wednesday, 07 November 2012 10:41 AM

    Wimale, you don't know Obama won, Impeachment put into dusbin.13+++ will come.

    warElephant Thursday, 08 November 2012 01:22 AM

    sinniah Thursday, 08 November 2012 01:39 AM

    These two idiots must shave their brain less heads and become Buddhist monks,

    sayed Wednesday, 07 November 2012 10:59 AM

    So you want Tamil rebel groups to be back to implement the 13 amendment.

    Nihal Amarasekera Thursday, 08 November 2012 02:02 AM

    It's all about power & extent of powerfulness.

    RamUK Thursday, 08 November 2012 08:57 AM

    It is not for LTTE or Tamils do something for ppl of SL. but keep not to do something since 1956 ...after every promise shows fundamentally something not right with SLs

    Ranjith Thursday, 08 November 2012 02:31 AM

    This is how a patriot see it. Not because that only thing he is good at is breaking promises....!!???

    mervyn perera Wednesday, 07 November 2012 12:16 PM

    Boru Epa. You know 13th amendment will never be repealed.

    shan Wednesday, 07 November 2012 12:41 PM

    Paul Albert Thursday, 08 November 2012 03:10 AM

    both these fellows deserted their own parties , and now trumpeting about somethingelse. The suitable place for them is Diyawanna oya or Mulleriya wa or Angoda area

    Yehiya Thursday, 08 November 2012 03:23 AM

    SLFP history create the communalism & hide the national issues except CBK time.

    Sue Thursday, 08 November 2012 04:29 AM

    Hair jelled, beard trimmed, nails manicured, face powdered and brain emptied. Perfect!

    Siri Thursday, 08 November 2012 04:40 AM

    Hello Ellision
    President promised 13 plus it is true. Could not you guess what is plus is 6,so at the end it will be 19th amendment.

    Lobo Thursday, 08 November 2012 04:43 AM

    The tamil groups never wanted the 13A during the time of Prabha...so why would they back it now??

    Thomas Wednesday, 07 November 2012 02:32 PM

    Listen to the Judiciary and lead this country, as we have half backed politicians

    Dinesh Wednesday, 07 November 2012 03:04 PM

    Did Wimal sign the impeachment motion against CJ? Because I did not see this name. If he didn't why? Also I did not see the "Dr" as well.....why?

    Ellison Wednesday, 07 November 2012 03:26 PM

    Why did our President MR promise 13(a) PLUS to the Sri Lankans?
    You call our President an idiot? He knows what he is doing.

    Guest Thursday, 08 November 2012 05:30 AM

    The unlawful manner makes brutalism and indefinite position to the country.
