    Why do you need a constitution for a Lawless country ?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:30 PM

    As if we have followed any constitution at all!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:13 AM

    Why don't you show the draft to the people of this country before the General Elections?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:39 PM

    The stratergy that's afoot to curtail opposition representation in Parliament.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:20 PM

    Why don't you'll do something useful like cleaning-up the public latrines, at train stations?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 01:49 PM

    The same old Kasippu in a new bottle !.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 12:19 PM

    Not only that, we hope MR will abolish Executive Presidency and reduce jumbo cabinet to 30 or less.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 12:17 PM

    this is the hope of the country

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:53 AM

    Do they really feel or know what is good / best for the living human beings of this Country?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:27 AM

    promises started

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:20 AM

    Does the Constitution contain a clause to ban loud mouth politicos - a bane to society and the fountain of our WOES.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:16 AM

    another election gimics ?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:54 AM

    With this JR Constitution you all are having a field day. We don't know what is in store for the people in a constitution you all are going to draft. God bless the country!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 08:13 AM

    One of the major changes in the new Constitution would be that 'Sri Lanka can only be ruled by a Rajapkse dynasty'. Read "timesonline.co.uk"

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:28 AM

    Wow…….Thinking of doing something to the country. Let’s think about NEW constitution later.
    Why cannot you IMPLEMENT 17th Amendment which is already there?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:28 AM

    Oh! no here starts the madness again.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:23 AM

    Thsi is good news in deed. Keep up the good work. Our country needs change specially with the cabinet.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:20 AM

    So that MR would be lifetime president and ONLY the family could contest for the presidency after him. What a wonderful thought

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:07 AM

    This is not practical..............

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:07 AM

    To completely shut out the opposition and ensure no hinderance at all to their agendas?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 09:39 AM

    he will change the constitution so that he can be president forever with his latest election rigging methods.. God belss Sri Lanka.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 09:32 AM

    If it's good for the country, we're all with you!!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 09:27 AM

    When?. Not in our life time.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 09:26 AM

    Just like the promised abolition of the Executive Presidency.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 08:29 AM

    Counting the chicks before they are hatched.
