The Anti-corruption Front says that if the 19th Amendment to the Constitution is not implemented, the Prime Minister needs to take responsibility for it.

This view was expressed at a press conference convened in Colombo, Thursday.

Attorney-at-Law, Shiral Lakthilaka stated that the arbitrary powers need to be abolished. In addition, the use of unnecessary powers through the commissions need to be balanced and disciplined. If there is an election in the future all three constitutional reforms need to take place.

JHU spokesperson Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe stated:

If agreements reached are being violated, if agreements are changed based on personal requirement and if clauses and words are changed, there is no trace of good governance. Ranil Wickremesinghe was given the post of Prime Minister to provide leadership to Socialist rule. If he is attempting to engage in another form of politics, he will not be able to achieve that within this Parliament.
