The UNP today vowed to challenge the proposed constitutional reforms by the government in a court of law once they are placed before the country.
Addressing the weekly press conference, UNP Media Spokesman MP Gayantha Karunatilake said that the government had no right whatsoever to amend the Constitution by keeping the entire country in the dark.
Mr. Karunatilake noted that those who opposed the executive presidency tooth and nail had now taken a different stand. (KB)

Mr. Karunatilake, how do you feel when someone goes to court to challenge reform in your own party!

The baby is not born yet, Don't know the colour. But these people put the name, and looked up the horoscope already. It's not extending the term, only extending the number of terms. Also it is done by the people of the country. If they think he is not suitable, then they can elect some other. And also this is responsible to the parliament too.

No, not UNP reforms!

UNP is alergic for reforms. They are not willing to reform their own party which suffered 18 election defeats. So do not expect them to support constitutional reforms. Anyway UNP is overwhelmingly rejected by majority voters during recently concluded general and presidential elections.

Please stop 'playing to the gallery.' The relevant Constitutional reforms will need both a 2/3rds majority and a referendum.
