Ready to abolish or prune down powers of Executive Presidency, says President Maithripala Sirisena
Maithripala Sirisena on April 20
said he was ready to abolish or
prune down the powers of the Executive
Presidency, reports Daily News.
“We have now completed two and a
half years in government- criticism,
allegations and insults are in plenty.
They are very common features of
a vibrant democracy. A draft Constitution
would be ready within the next two
weeks for Cabinet to discuss. We
have told the Expert Committee to
expedite the matter. During the
previous Cabinet, I promised to
bring it in January. I will now
direct them to do it as soon as
possible,” President Sirisena said.
