20A requires passage by 2/3 rd majority, approval at referendum: SC holds

Supreme Court of Sri Lanka 700 01

Supreme Court has determined that the bill titled 20th Amendment to the Constitution, presented by the JVP needed to be passed by a two-third majority in Parliament and approved by the people at a referendum to become law.

Supreme Court’s determination was conveyed to the House by Deputy Speaker Ananda Kumarasiri on Tuesday. He stated that there were 38 sections in the bill and 36 of them needed to be passed with special majority in parliament and approved by the people at a referendum as per the Supreme Court determination.

He added that the Supreme Court had determined that provisons of all sections, seeking to prune down the powers of executive presidency were inconsistent with the Constitution. Only two sections, the first section outlining the short title of the bill and the last section outlining the course of action whenever there was any inconsistency between the Sinhala and Tamil texts of the bill, Sinhala text would prevail, were consistent with the Constitution.
