NEC Agrees To 20-A

The National Executive Council (NEC) has backed presenting the 20th Amendment to the Constitution in Parliament very soon, the leader of the New Left Front Dr Wickramabahu Karunaratne said.

Accordingly, the proposal of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) to introduce a new electoral system was also discussed at the meeting.
“The concerns raised by minor political parties on the electoral system is to be discussed further,” he said.

Meanwhile the NEC has also received a proposal that suggests increasing the number of Parliamentarians from minor political parties in accordance with the voting percentage that these parties receive at an election.

Dr Karunaratne said that President Maithripala Sirisena has decided to produce the 20th Amendment in Parliament after the 19th Amendment is approved.

He said the amendments will be made in such a way not to disrupt the general election which is to be held in the near future.
