COLOMBO (News 1st): The former Minister and the founder of the Urumayaka Ulpatha Foundation Milinda Moragoda has put forward three points on governance for aspiring Presidential candidates to consider.

Issuing the release, the former minister said the first option would be to transform the executive presidency into a viable institution with adequate checks and balances through appropriate changes to the 19th amendment.

The second option shown in the release is to repeal the 13th amendment to the Constitution and abolish the Provincial Council system which has become a white elephant costing Sri Lankan citizens over Rs. 250 billion annually.

The release also added that Sri Lanka needs to establish an inclusive forum in which our diverse religious and ethnic groups can participate and engage actively in the democratic purpose. This could be done through the establishment of a Senate.
