June 16, Colombo: Sri Lanka Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) announced that it would bring a political package to replace the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

The party led a bloody campaign against the 13th amendment and the Provincial Councils in 1987-90 period and many thousands of people died as a result.

Politburo member of the JVP, parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayaka said that solutions for the problems of the Tamil people are needed to be provided concurrently with the abolition of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

JVP proposes solutions to the problems of the Tamil people in their package while proposing to abolish the 13th Amendment completely, Dissanayaka says.

JVP package is based on constitutional recognition of state as a multinational state and acceptance of freedom of all nationalities.

The package will be launched within two weeks, the JVP MP said.
