We will not challenge 20 A in the SC, but vote against it in the House … Anura Dissanayake

Anura Kumara

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) - led National People’s Power Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake has observed that his party would not go to the Supreme Court challenging 20 A but would vote against it in Parliament.

Speaking to the media, Anura Kumara Dissanayake said:

“We will vote in Parliament against 20A. NPP feels that there is no need to go before the SC. The late J.R. Jayewardene introduced a constitution in 1978 heeding what the western countries wanted. They were playing on the democracy and human rights card then.

This government is now following suit, this time to bury the economic crisis that is inevitable. Going before the Supreme Court is not going to bring us anything good or bad. It will have to only determine whether 20A is consistent or not with the Constitution. The Government has the two-thirds vote and will push ahead.”
