Real and reform, on srilankan constitution The 19th amendment to srilankan constitution that had been implemented after getting a popular mandate in 2015 presidential election. It not only reduced the executive president vast powers, by restoring a two term limit and making it difficult for the legislature to dissolved at the president ‘s whim. Now, this amendment ‘gains appears to be abrogated by newly elected parliament in the name undoing the 19th amendment. It would be travesty of democratics principle .there are no doubt that the party ,the SLPP ,led by THE president ‘s elder brother and p. M Mahindra Rajapaksa has requisite mandate to overhaul the constitution and electrical system. However the winner must think of its pros and cons, whether this reform would strengthen democratic institutions or weaken it. This concept of devolution for a Democratic must be supreme if it is abandoned altogether, it will be retrogressive step for a country which has gained many successes in years.

In his first address to the newly elected parliament, President gotabla rajpare has announced his intention to repeal the 19th amendment of the constitution and then act in the direction of a new constitution. Some would suspect that the party led by the President ‘s elder brother and the prime minister, mahindra rajpa, has the necessary mandate for abolishing the constitutional and electoral system. The abolition of the 19th amendment was, in fact, the main political issue of the party. However, is it necessary that the benefits of the 19th amendment are thrown out of lock, stock and barrel? What this law introduces was based on a popular mandate for a change in the 2015 presidential election. It not only placed a check on the powers of the executive chairman but also restored to the extent of a double – tenure, making it difficult for the legislature to dissolve the will of the President, but also to safeguard the independence of oversite institutions. It would be a violation of democratic principles if freedom of institutions such as election commission is now restrained by scrapping 19 th. For a long time, the srilankan leaders maintained that they could grant constitutional concessions to the minorities without the consent of the majority of sinhala.
