President all powerful under 20A - SJB

SJB MP Mujibar Rahuman yesterday said that the Government was trying to entrust enormous powers with the President through the 20th Amendment to the Constitution.

He said that the government is treading on the path of despotic rule by attempting to do away with clauses that prevent dual citizenship holders to become the members of the Legislature.

Addressing a press conference in Colombo, Rahuman said he has received information that the President is to be given powers to appoint members of all Commissions through the 20th Amendment to the Constitution.

“The Commission members were appointed by Parliament earlier. This move will help make these Commissions redundant,”he said. He was of the view that these Commissions will act on the whims and fancies of the President through this Constitutional Amendment.
