Government Acted Arbitrarily On Constitutional Reform: JVP

JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake today said that the government acted in an arbitrary manner at the outset of constitutional reform in introducing the resolution on the Constitutional Assembly.

Speaking at a press conference today, he said that the constitution should changed according to the Standing Orders.

However, the Prime Minister has violated standing orders to a considerable extent in proposing the resolution, he added.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on Saturday proposed the resolution to convert the Parliament to a Constitutional Assembly to draft a new constitution. However, opponents have argued that it should be drafter through a Standing Committee.
