Important to adopt new constitution – Malwatte Mahanayake Featured

The government should act to adopt a new constitution without giving regard to attempts at sabotage by a group without any political future, says Mahanayake of Malwatte Chapter, Most Ven. Tibbatuwawe Sri Sumangala Thera.

The Thera was addressing SLFP ministers Nimal Siripala de Silva, Duminda Dissanayake and Mahinda Amaraweera who called on him yesterday (27).

No other opportunity will happen if the national government comprising the two main parties fails to adopt a new constitution, he noted.

The ministers told him that the new constitution would ensure the continuation of the place of priority given to Buddhism, establish the unitary status of the country and change the electoral system.

De Silva said attention will be paid to several related matters before abolishing the executive presidency, BBC Sandeshaya reports.
