Change in political culture needed – JVP
The JVP says a change in the electoral system is futile without an overhaul in the country’s political culture.
JVP Parliamentarian Nalinda Jayatissa said a political change is needed promptly.
MP Jayatissa stated the people wanted a political change in the country and a new Electoral System was introduced adding that when it was introduced the JVP stated that a change in the country’s politics is what is needed.
The MP noted that there is no point in changing the electoral system without changing the culture and that the country’s politics cannot be saved by politicians who continuously crossover and follow money and betray policies.
The Parliamentarian further stated that this indicates that without introducing a major change in the country’s politics, these corrupt individuals will continue to engage in wrongful activities.
