Constitutional changes soon


President Mahinda Rajapaksa will have talks with other political parties to implement constitutional changes, Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who is also a brother of the President said in an interview with Al Jazeera television.

“The president has the mandate ... he has said that he'll speak to all the parties. I am sure now that he has a majority [in the house]. He has plans to [implement] constitutional changes," Gotabaya Rajapaksa told Al Jazeera.

He dismissed speculation that the president would seek more powers through constitutional reforms, saying: "He has all the powers; he doesn't need more powers."
