Mon, Apr 28, 2014, 08:29 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 28, Colombo: An ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the Democratic Left Front (DLF) says that a majority of the government were supportive of abolishing the executive presidency.

DLF Leader, Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara has said that over 70 percent of the government ministers and legislators in parliament were in favor of abolishing the executive presidency.

He told the media that the country is in need of a constitutional amendment that will abolish the executive presidential system.

Nanayakkara has expressed his views saying that if the President and those who exercise pivotal power in the government work to abolish the executive presidency, the image of the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government would be renewed and would gather much public support.

He added that the abolition of the current system will result in the greater democratization of the country and the parliament's decision making process.
