20A is fatherless baby … Tissa Attanayake charges

Tissa Attanayake

The Samagi Jana Balavegaya Parliamentarian Tissa Attanayake has observed that the proposed 20th Amendment to the Constitution by the government had become a fatherless baby.

He was addressing the media at the Opposition Leader’s Office in Colombo on Monday, September 14. Tissa Attanayake said:

"The proposed 20th Amendment to the Constitution by the government has become a fatherless baby. The Justice Minister says that though he submitted the draft to the Cabinet he does not know who prepared it. Minister Wimal Weerawansa says that the draft does not have a father. The Prime Minister does not know about it. The Cabinet of Ministers too are in the dark about the persons involved in drafting the Amendment and its content. Not even the Parliamentary group of the government is aware of anything certain about the draft bill.

The proposed 20th Amendment contains many anti-democratic provisions. As we go through the draft bill it can be seen that there is provision for increasing the number of Cabinet ministers, dissolving parliament one year after its formation, enabling those with dual citizenship to come to parliament, abolition of independent commissions, etc.. People did not give a mandate to the government for any of these things.”
