 Yuthukama organisation which has parliamentary representation on the ticket of the government has submitted its proposals for a new constitution based on the principles of ancient ‘civilisational state’ of Sri Lanka.   


Ruling party MP Gevindu Cumaratunga submitted the proposals to the constitution-making committee recently. According to the proposals, writer Dr. Gunadasa Amarasekara published the book titled ‘Towards a Civilisational State’ in 2016 at the time when the previous Yahapalana government was making attempts to introduce a Federal constitution pandering to the needs of separatists.   


The book was launched with a deep analysis of Sri Lanka’s civilisation state started during the reign of King Pandukabhaya. A governing model based on ‘a network of Gam Sabhas’ which prevailed at that time is proposed in this exercise.   

 

  • It calls for furtherance with the executive presidential system in which the president is the head of state


In the proposals, Yuthukama organisation calls for revitalisation of Sri Lanka’s homegrown concept of civilisation state, affirmation of unitary character of Sri Lanka, the introduction of one law, one country concept, clear demarcation of authority among the executive, legislature and judiciary, establishment of real public representation and mandate and a dutiful society.   


It calls for furtherance with the executive presidential system in which the president is the head of state. It seeks a governing model in which the country is governed according to Dasa Raja Dharma (Ten Royal Virtues).   
The organisation says the head of state should govern the country independent of party politics and Gama (village) should be a strong unit with no division on party politics.
