SLPP heart-rending for Party Founder over 21A, says it won’t back any amendments that aim individuals

A group of SLPP MPs have concluded that they will not back any constitutional amendments that aim individual. The conclusion has been backed by over 80 Ruling Party MPs, reports said.

The decision comes in following many rounds of discussions for the proposed 21st Amendment to the Constitution.

In addition to the restriction of the President’s powers, the 21A proposes the prevention of allowing any dual citizens to enter Parliament, which according to a majority of SLPP MP is a clause targeting Basil Rajapaksa, the Party Founder.

Therefore, these MPs are of the view that they will not back such an amendment.

They further noted that Ranil Wickremesinghe was appointed as the Prime Minister not to adopt constitutional amendments but to provide solutions to the problems faced by the people.
