Sri Lanka President calls for repealing 19th Amendment, says it led to political instability

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena Sunday called for repealing the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which was the main component of his election manifesto at 2015 presidential elections, blaming the legislation for the political instability in the country. President Maithripala Sirisena on Sunday said the 18th and 19th amendments to the Constitution should be abolished in order to establish a good governance ensuring freedom and democracy in the future. The President said although the 19th Amendment was introduced because of the monarchial and dictatorial nature of the 18th Amendment introduced by the former government, the 19th Amendment made it impossible for the country to move forward under a single political leadership creating a political uncertainty where objectives of the good governance proved futile.President made these comments in his speech at the 40th anniversary celebrations of the National Housing Development Authority on Sunday at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH).
