      The NEXT constitutional amendment should be a Code of Ethics for Politicians and the scum of the earth Rajapassa brothers, relatives and cronies who are corrupt crooks.
      The NEXT bill should be the Bill on the Prevention of the Incitement to Religious and Ethnic hatredmodeled on the British Bill of the same name, which that moron Ranil Wickramasinghe should seek to bring to Parliament instead of talking none sense about a new constitution.. BBS and JHU need to be put on notice that racism is not on.

      Never mind Codes of ethics for the Media, when the politicians tell bald lies and insult the Chief Justice in the Parliament of corrupt clown and uneducated morons.. It is they who need a Code of Conduct and Civil society organizations should draft one and present it as a private members bill..

        It is a very bold step taken by the government as it is necessary, in protecting the unitary state, to remove the power, given under the precent constitution to a single PC to overcome even the 2/3 majority of the centre with a simple majority.

          Somebody asked “what is the point in having a united country when the people are divided?”

          So lets unite the people and shall I say not divide the country?

              sham

              I will put in simple language :

              Why would the people unite?

              Is there a common cause?

              Would there be light at the end of the tunnel?

              What would be the benefit for the united people?

              ……….

              ………

              ……..

              Why would anyone unite with others, if they are not treated equal before law, their dignity restored, not given equality of opportunities, their human rights not respected, democracy not restored………………….?

        Mahinda Rajapassa, the corrupt dictator is running scared!

        Worried that loosing the Northern Provincial Council will put a break on his families’ power grab and looting of the public wealth, the CORRUPT and FOUL bastard is trying to undermine the whole system to ensure that the power he has grabbed by various illegal constitutional amendments is unchallenged..!

        Meanwhile the Sinhalay modaya grins and bears the cost of living and electric tarrifs – satiated by Sinhala un-buddhist nationalism!
        What a Banana republic is the debacle of Asia!

          SAID ” Unite the people, then the country will NOT be divided” Very specific and need no explanation.

          Create an atmosphere where no one above the law irrespective of any sorts. STOP threatening minorities with various CREATION, treat fairly and equally.

          UNITARY STATE…. no one want to divide the contry

      The Muslim Congress and Dead Left must quit Rajapassa Dictatorship now – before it is too late to save the Muslims and Buddhists of Lanka from the distorted versions of these religions used by politicians!

      The Muslim Public should protest Rauf Hakeem – the most venal Muslim politician ever!

      Finally, Chandrika Bandaranayake should take a stand, join the critics of the Rajapassa brother’s power grab and dictatorship in the SLFP and country which is what the dilution of the 13th Amendment is all about – and form a “SAVE THE SLFP” group and run for a third presidential term as leader of the joint opposition..

    The two vociferous politicians in this direction acted solely with the
    support of the Ruling Family and is a change to hear that some Ministers
    have back-bones to speak at least at this late stage!

    The democracy society came into being,where humankind create social capital,and is made up of a wide range of interest—–religious and cultural and ethnic-political organization,education,political parties and a host of advocacy organization whose purpose is to create social contract of various class interest by modern state.
    While the social class if often relegated to back tier of social life and regarded as of marginal importance in comparison to the economy and state ,it is the primary arena in which civilization unfold.
    By sharing a common heritage,we come to think of as Sri lankan of ourselves as a equal community and accumulate the trust without,which politics of Tamils or Sinhalese or Muslims would be possible to established and maintain.
    Where people of the society is where we generate the social capital and trust.The people is really accumulated trust,that is invested in markets and governance.If rulers destroy the social trust vested to them by people,by eventually withdraw their support or force a re-established and re-organization of the state and society democracy in NEW ORDER IN SRI LANKA.

    The expired lefties and the opportunist Hakeem will fall into line with some threats and arm-twisting by Rajapaksa’s private executioners.

    If the amendments are passed the NPC and other councils will lose all important powers one by one after the NPC elections. I wonder what India and other stakeholders will do in this scenario. Will the TNA boycott the elections? Will India turn against Rajapaksa? Will the UNHRC take any action? Only time will tell!

    Only thing I say that Mahinda Rajapakse is without a Back bone. IF he had a back bone he should have FIRED those MPs who disagreed with him. HE just showed that he does not have any strength. Mahinda Rajapkse is weak, so he is letting his MPs control him.

    I talk what I see.

      Jim softly,because he is not you is the reason that he is the president,while you are a failure in life.Your lack of success in life is because you think you are superior to others and know everything.
