These sentiments were expressed by the General Secretary of the Liberal Party Kamal Nissanka in a media statement that commended the proposals made by MP Vasantha Senanayake to the PSC on the National Question.

“There is a need to develop stronger traditions of both legislative and executive responsibility and it will be served by such changes. Moreover, it will immeasurably strengthen any Executive President who desires to govern efficiently and effectively,” the Liberal Party statement reads.

While endorsing the proposals made by MP Senanayake based on his consultations with the youth and discussions with the diaspora through the Young Political Leaders Form (YPLF), Nissanka in the statement has noted that it is time to consolidate the idea to promote consensus.

They have requested all political parties to study the proposals and provide feedback on them to MP Senanayake so that they can can be fine tuned if necessary so that an agreement can be reached upon at least a on a few matters discussed pertaining to the national question.

Meanwhile, expressing disappointment over the absence of an interim report despite holding sittings for several months, they have urged the PSC on the National Question to issue an interim report inclusive of recommendations on areas that are not prone to controversy including;

  • the establishment of a Second Chamber of Parliament based on provinces
  • strengthening of local government institutions and consultation process

    In Srilanka, Committees are to buy time, to postpone the issues, buy time to create another problem so people forget the initial problem.

    There is no such a Liberal party in Sr Lanka. But there bankrupt “Anduwata kade yana parties ” are there. Now you may see lot of parties and fronts working for the regime from few days from now. There are poster campaigns, accidents, discussions and press releases, D.M Jyaratne, Susil Premjayantha (Both are secretaries of UPFA Now and then) are talking about abolishing executive presidency. Also there are attempt to stop journalists and threats t their lives, Mud slinging on Maitripala and some others,.All the thieves and kewatta advisers like Dulles, Wimal, Sajin work at full swing to counter opposition call. D> M> Jayaratne says only one common candidate is MR etc! This man, D.M. was a murderur and was in jail in 1978. Look like he is mentally incapacitated as it is natural. How can he talk about others? All these are anti demeocratic and , anti Sri Lankan, self centered , corrupt people. Rally around a Common opposition canditate to abolish this demonic system and transfer the power to all people. Dont listen to these Jokers! There is one front to listen . That is common peoples front! peoples consccience! ( BEWARE OF ACCIDENTS! MORE ACCIDENTS LIKE MADULUWAWE SOBITHA THERO OR ANURA DISSANAYAKE CAN HAPPENED IN THE FUTURE TOO.UVINDU KNOWS HOW IT HAPPENS AND WHO IS BEHIND MUCH BETTER THAN US)
