  • The best option available now is to bring in a piece of legislation to rectify technical issues in 19A  

By Yohan Perera  

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) yesterday urged the government to withdraw the gazetted 20th Amendment to the Constitution as it had already created issues within the government itself and to bring in a new legislation to rectify the technical issues in the 19th Amendment.   

SJB National Organiser Tissa Attanayake told a press conference yesterday that the best option available now is to bring in a piece of legislation to rectify the technical issues in the 19th Amendment.   


“Prime Miniater Mahinda Rajapaksa is to appoint a committee to look into the proposed 20th Amendment. This implies that there are issues pertaining to the proposed constitutional amendment. Meanwhile Minister Wimal Weerawansa has said he is also planning to bring in amendments to the new piece of legislation. At the same time I noted Minister G L. Peris saying that the 2oth Amendment will be adjusted and a new gazette notification will be issued.
