The Government had decided to bring in a new Constitution because the present Constitution had gone through so many amendments, Deputy Minister Ajith P. Perera said today.

“There is no point of making Constitutional amendments because the Constitution has been amended so many times, Power and Renewable Energy Deputy Minister said.

During a field visit to the Colombo Port Power Plant Barge, the he said that there was no need to make amendments to the present ‘distorted’ Constitution.

“There is no point of making Constitutional amendments because the Constitution has been amended so many times.

“Instead of amendments, the Government has decided to bring a new Constitution. The new Constitution would be brought only with the Parliament approval and peoples’ mandate at a referendum,” he said.

He said the Government hoped to get the two-thirds of Parliament majority. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    Through amendments we improve the constitution. US constitution has been amended more than 4000 times. Ranil's government wants a new constitution because he promised TNA at the last election.
