Says will be done within a year with the consensus of the CA

By Kelum Bandara 

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told the parliamentary group of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) yesterday that he was ready to introduce a new constitution within a year based on the consensus reached at the Constitutional Assembly (CA).  

Flanked by Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne, the Prime Minister called for a special meeting with the TNA MPs in the parliamentary complex in view of the presidential election.   


After the meeting, TNA MP M.A. Sumanthiran told Daily Mirror that his party made significant compromises on its position to reach consensus on constitution-making. He said the TNA would also agree to forge ahead based on a consensus reached to evolve a new constitution.   


Mr. Sumanthiran said the TNA informed the Prime Minister that it was left to the United National Party (UNP) to sort out its internal differences as far as its presidential candidate was concerned and that theTNA would not be party it.  


He said there seemed to be three presidential hopefuls in the UNP and his party would decide on whom to support only after holding talks with all those in the fray including those from other parties.
