Parliamentarian Eran Wickramaratne says the 21st Amendment to the Constitution is being tabled by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya for the betterment of the country.
Speaking during yesterday’s Parliament debate, the MP said the 21st Amendment will empower the people.
MP Wickramaratne revealed that the 21st Amendment to the Constitution proposes for the Executive Presidency to be abolished or for Executive powers vested within the President to be devolved to Parliament.
MP Wickramaratne claimed that many individuals suggest there is an economic crisis in the country due to shortages in fuel, essential food items, and continuous power cuts.
However, the Parliamentarian said the real struggle is political that comes in the guise of an economic struggle.
He added the 20th Amendment to the Constitution which was proposed by the Minister of Finance Ali Sabry has failed to realise its purpose.
