New constitution will be ready by January:- Minister Peiris

Prof G L Peiris

Foreign Minister G L Peiris has observed that the new constitution of the country would be finalized by January 2022.

He made the observation while speaking to reporters on Monday, October 18. He said:

“Work on Sri Lanka’s proposed new constitution has been finalized and what is to be the country’s new supreme law will be ready for parliamentary perusal come January 2022.

The constitution is the country’s supreme law. However, it’s not set in stone. As the nature and the needs of society change, so too must the constitution. It is a convoluted (vyhaakoola) process. To do this, the president appointed a committee comprising some of the best known lawyers and intellectuals in the country.

The committee, chaired by president’s counsel Romesh de Silva, has fulfilled its mandate and the draft constitution will be ready by the end of the year once it has been through the Legal Draftsman’s Department.

Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa’s debut budget will be presented to parliament on November 12. The final vote on that will be taken on December 10. So, in January 2022, Sri Lanka parliament will have the opportunity to focus on the new constitution. ”
