UPFA to table constitutional amendments in June: Sirisena

[TamilNet, Friday, 07 May 2010, 15:52 GMT]
The ruling alliance of Mahinda Rajapaksa, the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) is formulating its constitutional amendments, which are likely to be tabled in the Sri Lankan parliament in the month of June, according to a leader of the Sri Lanka Freedom party (SLFP) Maithiripala Sirisena. The SLFP is the main constituent of the UPFA government and Mr. Sirisena is a senior minister in Rajapaksa's cabinet.

Proposed constitutional amendments would fulfil the wishes of the people who voted the UPFA to power, the Sri Lankan minister said.

Mahinda Rajapaksa almost has a two-third majority and there would not be any problems to pass the constitutional amendments in parliament, Srisena added stating that he expected opposition parties to extend their support to the move.
