Sri Lanka moves to amend Constitution on presidential and parliamentary terms

Colombo, July 10 (Daily Mirror) - The Cabinet of Ministers has greenlit a resolution aimed at amending specific articles of the Constitution concerning the terms of office for the President and Parliament.

This decision targets articles 30 (2), 62 (2), and 83 (b) of the Constitution, which govern the duration of presidential and parliamentary terms.

Recent observations have pointed out discrepancies between the tenure of the President and the duration of parliamentary terms as stipulated in the mentioned articles.

Currently, Article 83 (b) allows for a presidential term exceeding six years, whereas the proposed amendment seeks to substitute this with a term not exceeding five years.
