UNP ready to consider supporting amendments to 19A proposed by govt


By Akitha Perera

The UNP says it is prepared to discuss amendments to the 19th Amendment to the Constitution with the government.

Addressing the media at UNP headquarters, Sirikotha, UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella said that if the current government felt there were some clauses which needed to be amended the UNP was willing to discuss them.

Kirielle, however, said he could not give a blanket assurance that the UNP would support the abolition of the 19th Amendment. "If the government can point out flaws in the Amendment then we are ready to consider extending our support as a party to do away with them."
