Joint Opposition (JO) MP Udaya Gammanpila today filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a determination that the 20th Amendment to the Constitution requires the approval of people at a referendum.
In his petition, MP Gammanpila said the 20A violates the articles 3, 4 and 32 (ii) of the Constitution.
The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) presented the draft bill on the 20th Amendment in Parliament.

We the public is indebted to MP Gammanpila who took action on time to defeat this dodgy move by the JVP.

The only way to eliminate corruption is if by devolving power to many instead of concentrating it on one person.
