The Cabinet today granted the approval to abolish the 19th Amendment to the Constitution and to draft the 20th Amendment to the Constitution, Cabinet Spokesman Minister Keheliya Rambukwella told Daily Mirror.

The new government repeatedly criticised the 19A and said that it would bring in changes to the Constitution to rectify what they called ‘deficiencies’ in the 19A. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    13th and 16th amendments next? Both affect our sovereignty and cultural heritage!

    Sando Wednesday, 19 August 2020 04:17 PM

    is there any benefit to the failed country?

    Our constitution is a joke. Wednesday, 19 August 2020 05:13 PM

    What ever amendments nothing will HAPPEN. Sri Lankan big talkers but no action.

    Saman Wednesday, 19 August 2020 05:15 PM

    Short term gaining, long term disaster. The consequences of pain have to born by coming generations in Sri Lanka. Blind people....

    In about 6 months Country will be converted to Somalia.

    Demuni Uduwara Wednesday, 19 August 2020 06:13 PM

    Better to have re-introduced Soulbury Constitution instead for a disciplined country with amendments. If 19A abolished country will be strayed. Govt needs to maintain family monopoly forever.

    Why bother? We are the President; We are the PRIME MINISTER; and we are the two third majority in the parliament. No need for haste. Keep cool and calm , and play statesmanship.

    Now only people will know the truth and think of 2/3rd.
