MP Ranawaka noted the proposed amendments should be presented to Parliament in the coming week and passed within the month of July.
MP Ranawaka said the postponement of the 21st Amendment to the Constitution will result in the worsening of the political instability and economic crisis.
Commenting on the appointment of prominent businessman Dhammika Perera as a Member of Parliament, MP Ranawaka said a single individual cannot provide solutions to the issues of the country.
He noted the present situation was a result of the decisions taken by Parliamentarians and individuals surrounding them.
Meanwhile, commenting on the statements made by the Chairman of the Electricity Board at the Committee on Public Enterprises, MP Ranawaka stated a foreign entity cannot enter industries by force adding it reflected badly on national sovereignty.
