Draft 20A proposal before Cabinet today

Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella confirmed that once the report of the committee mandated to prepare proposed amendments arising from the 19th Amendment to the Constitution is received by Cabinet, it will be presented to the Attorney General’s Department and drafted soon.

He added that a new Constitution will be introduced to the country within a few years after the 20th Amendment to the Constitution.

He was speaking to the media after religious observances at the Asgiriya Maha Viharaya Pirivena yesterday. He also said that it was important to bring the new Constitution into public discourse for sometime.

Meanwhile, Attorney General’s Department sources confirmed that the draft of the proposed 20th Amendment was sent to the Attorney General’s Department for observations and would be tabled before Cabinet today. Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said the country has not been able to move forward due to certain shortcomings in the 19th Amendment and 20th Amendment was to rectify all that. He said that decentralisation of resources was more important than decentralisation of power in the country and that it would bring about an economic revival in the North and East.
