The Jathika Hela Urumaya claims that plans are afoot to include sections of the 19th Amendment which confer powers on the Prime Minister, in violation of the Supreme Court determination.

Meanwhile, the UNP says it will ensure passage of the 19th Amendment and fulfill the promise made to the people.

Deputy Minister of Policy Planning and Economic Affairs Dr. Harsha de Silva says that in the situation that they hope to fulfill this second promise on   April 28 adding once these preliminary points are adopted on the 28th, they will quickly go for an election to inquire into the will of the people and form a new government.

Meanwhile, JHU General Secretary Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka  notes that they kindly request the Prime Minister to refrain from including the sections that confer power on the Prime Minister and take only what has been approved by the Supreme Court.

Speaking further, he notes that some are attempting to hastily cause whatever trouble they can and prorogue parliament and go for an election without the amendment to the constitution, adding that those parties should defeat opportunism and reach a consensus, and that the people have voted for this.
