* Sri Lanka ruling party contradicts Minister on agreeing to bring constitutional reforms
Thu, Aug 7, 2014, 10:27 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 07, Colombo: Cabinet spokesman of Sri Lanka government Minister of Media and Information Keheliya Rambukwella said today that the ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) had only agreed for a discussion with the National Freedom Front (NFF) led by Minister Wimal Weerawansa about a constitutional amendment.

However, addressing a press briefing held in Colombo on August 05, with the participation of the SLFP and NFF leaders, general secretary of the SLFP Minister Maithripala Sirisena said that the SLFP had accepted the NFF proposals with amendments.

Minister Weerawansa told media at the joint press briefing that the SLFP had agreed with his party to bring a new constitution instead of changing the constitution part by part.

The cabinet spokesman's views have contradicted the statements made by the senior SLFP leaders.

First of the 12 proposals the NFF put forward highlights the need to bring a draft constitution for public approval.
