JVP to present 20th Amendment in Parliament
The JVP says the 20th Amendment draft bill proposing the abolishment of the Executive Presidency will be tabled in Parliament within the day or tomorrow.
Accordingly the draft will be tabled as a private member bill by leader of the JVP Anura Kumara Dissanayake.
JVP Politburo member Nalinda Jayatissa said the party is scheduled to hold discussions with party leaders after presenting the proposal.
He meanwhile stressed once the proposal is tabled and discussed in Parliament and issued to the Attorney General it will be once again included in a Parliament order paper to be taken up for debate.
Jayatissa noted the JVP also intends to hold talks with the Maha Sangha and other religious leaders of the country.
