Updated 10.00PM

Parliament today passed the second reading of the 19th Amendment.

Two hundred and fifteen (215) Members of Parliament (MPs) voted for the amendment while only one, MP Sarath Weerasekara voted against it. MP Ajith Kumara abstained the voting while seven Members of Parliament, Basil Rajapaksa, Premalal Jayasekera, Janaka Priyantha Bandara, Dr. Jagath Balasuriya, Keheliya Rambukwella, Ven. Ellawela Medhananda and Susantha Punchinilame were absent.

MP Sarath Weerasekara voted against the amendment while MP Ajith Kumara abstained from voting. The government agreed to the SLFP move to dilute the composition of the Constitutional Council. The SLFP proposed to include 7MPs to the constitutional council with 3 non MPs. The Constitutional Council as proposed by the 19th Amendment would be a representative body reflecting the views of diverse groups in Parliament and would be apolitical in so far as the seven non ex-officio persons who are not politicians and are distinguished in public or professional life.

      Tide may have just turned in Sri Lanka’s favor today. At long last. What a day!

      I thank all who worked tirelessly to make this happen. Sri Lankans from all walks of life. You never gave up against all odds.

      We can now start the long, winding journey towards a more perfect Sri Lanka. This is just a beginning. A damn good start.

      Cheers!

      PS: Rejected dictator and his cronies can retire now. You will never be able to hold Sri Lanka to ransom again. Never.

          I have contacts along the porous border between China & North Korea. Can provide access to North Korea. The only option. Any corrupt monkeys who are eager? Do get in touch.

          Both China and Cuba are pragmatic nations now. Despite their revolutionary outlook.

          Let us not pollute untouched Antarctica with rejects from Sri Lanka.

      Yes, indeed! A red letter day for Sri Lanka!! We should march on from here to become a decent, proud and prosperous nation again!!!

      We all should remember if the people of the NE had not given overwhelming majority to Maithree at the Presidential election, this day would never have been born. If the tyrant had been elected in Jan for the 3rd term, he would have irreversibly destroyed this nation. THOUGH HE GOT THE MAJORITY IN THE SOUTH, WE MUST REMEMBER, THE PEOPLE OF THE NE WHO SAVED THIS NATION FROM A COMPLETE DISASTER.

        Stupidity of the northern Tamils has never been questioned.

        Together S/T hid in India for independence and on return drew away the estate Tamils of Indian origin.

        VP drove the IPKF for Sinhalese and was finally killed by the Sinhalese (very English in technique- keep licking the irish you are loving it.)

        So you got Passa out to bring in a community of passas.

        You don’t have any friends to lean on when you woe the Irish Gun_Butt- they only run sweat-shops.

        Tamils can never get together like the Jewish nor do they have that intelligence.

        Its time to change your system/policy

    Victory for MR, only the blind and racist will not see it LOL.

    With the aparthied inspired “consitutional council” concept pretty much destroyed, the 19A really is nothing. The “consitutional council” was designed to turn Sinhalese into 3rd class citizens in their own and only country and empower the alien Christians in Colombo and foreign imported Tamils as supreme rulers, turning the clock back to the British style of barbaric rule of butchery over Sri Lanka and the Sinhalese. When the General Election is held (that is if Ranil wants to face an election or continue his illegal anti-democratic dictorial and highly corrupt national wealth robbing rule) MR will sweep the polls and came back to lead SL as the executive PM.

    This is a victory for MR’s return, LOL. These “good governance” dictatorship preachers don’t realise how they’ve shot themselves in the foot. They maybe celebrating now, but it will be short lived. In the long term they are done for. The powerful and clever master stroke by the MR faction will see MR return with full powers and ensure these white worshippers who couldn’t care less if Sri Lanka disintegrated tomorrow (as evident with how they openly supported the LTTE, wanted our own Army defeat during the war, celebrated LTTE victorys and casualities amongst our soldiers and went around the world demanding economic sanctions to make the people suffer) will not just be thrown in jail but put out of existence. Just watch the fate to befall these “good goverance” criminals who came to power on lies (like good Lasantha style Christians) and are robbing Sri Lanka of her wealth to fill their bank accounts and enjoying foreign trips on first class air travel to luxury hotels while selling our country out and crushing the basic rights of Sinhalese to empower the blood demanding Tamil racist imports, the Church and of course to please their benefactors in the West.

        “”What is in it for the Tamils? “”

        ◕More than the Tamils wanted freedom, the Sinhalese/Muslims wanted security.

        ◕Yet they lost everything—security, comfort, and freedom.

        ◕This was because Sinhalese wanted not to give to society,
        but for society to give to them.

        ◕The security Sinhalese/Muslim were seeking was freedom from responsibility.

        ◕It is no wonder, then, that all have ceased to be free.

    Wonderful news ! A tremendous step forward. But I regret that the government conceded to the SLFP demand to dilute the composition of the Constitutional Council thereby reducing the weightage of civil society in the Council. The governnment should have stuck to its guns and said “no deal”. No more dilution. Given the tremendous build up of public opinion in favour of the 19th Ammendment the SLFP now in disgrace disoriented and still licking its wounds after January though all the while fussing and blocking – would in the end not have dared to vote against the 19th Ammendment. The government should have called their bluff.

    Yes it is a very good thing that 19A has secured a 2/3 majority. But do not wish away its now 3 (previously 2) massive defects. (i) by establishing dual-centres of power – elected president and parliamentary power it has sown the seeds of future instability; (ii) the Council of State (pseudo second chamber) is an empty and vacuous body appointed 80% by PM and Leader of Opposition.

    And now we have a third contemptible capitulation. The Constitutional Council (CC) which will vet high level appointments (Judges, IGP, AG, Bribery C and many key posts) was to include 7 persons of high repute appointed by the President on the recommendation of PM, Leader of Opp, political leaders etc. Now Sirisena-Ranil have capitulated shamelessly and agreed to have 7 MPs instead. This incestuous relationship between CC and Parliament destroys the principle of division of power between Legislature, Executive and Judiciary. (Dot confuse this with the US Senate’s vetting system for high appointments which is quite different in powers and tradition – actually we have no traditions in this respect).

      I have serious concerns too about how the Contitutional Council will now be constituted . The SLFP has succeeded in sabotaging a key innovation in the 19th amendment to ensure the independence of key instructions through a body of educated and experienced persons from the civic society ,combined with the PM, opposition leader and the Speaker.
      The lean, mean and hungry-looking Casca has successfully stabed Caessar in the back!

      The President will have to now play an active role to ensure that the persons nominated to the independent commissions are indeed independent, of high calibre and beyond political interference.

      A new constitution has to be definitely formulated once a new parliament is elected. This would also hinge on the quality of persons we elect to the new parliament and the fate of the 20th amendment.

      Agree with both Prof. David & Dr. Rajasingham.

      Despite my initial euphoria, no telling how disappointed I am by the composition change of CC. Forced down Sri Lanka’s collective throat by corrupt UPFA monkeys in Parliament.

      These well-known thieves held us to ransom once again. At the last moment of a historic process. Indeed they have stabbed us in the back. They will never be forgiven. Ever.

      Yet, we have come so far. We can finish the job. Fix it I hope after the General Election.

      Number One priority now is to flush those corrupt monkeys out of Parliament. Preferably down the toilet of history..

      We won a major battle. The war is on-going. Sri Lanka will prevail. At the end.

      Cheers!

      Navin – Do not underestimate MaRa’s capabilities. He will plant some of his supporters to contest under SLFP ticket and cross over once ministry ships are not offered to some of them as govt. cannot offer every winner a ministerial position and there is a possibility that only SLFP ministers, UNP’ers and minority parties sitting on govt. benches and the rest sitting on the opposition benches, whose no. may even be higher. The Govt. had created a precedence by accepting lower rung parliamentarians in the current govt.as ministers and how will they accommodate the seniors in the party ,after the election,so Navin, Ar’nt we not back to square one.?

On the basis of SC ruling certain sections were deleted and then the SLFP wanted certain amendments.What is left of the original amendment.

    Congratulation My3, Ranil, Ven. Sobitha Thero and the untiring efforts of everyone else in the team. The Ideal amendment was watered down because of the need to accommodate he elite group of parliamentarians who wants control over the Srilankan destiny against the will of the people. We should strive to get the agenda forward to include the original version when the elections are over to make sure the constitutional council is filled with descent, professional and insightful patriots who will do the right thing versus a bunch of thieves who think that Srilanka should move in the direction they want. Lets mobilize today and work until we achieve the ideal outcome.

    Basically the Rajapaksa’s have lost the match at this point. Now the Bribery Committee can really start doing their job and not just arrest Basil for a couple of days upgrading him quickly into hospitalization. Now some serious cleaning can start take place. Remember the fraud took place on a massive scale. It is a good thing that Mahinda build this huge new prison in … where else would it be … Hambantota. And more good news: prisoners can be flown in so the Rajapaksa International Failport can still be of use!

        Afghanistan the Muslim invaders killed all the Buddhist and destroyed all statutes – the Muslim invaders foreigners (paradeshi) are Hitlers men so supported by Sonia a plasterer/fighters for Mussolini (spent 2 years in Russian jail ) 10 boms no inquery and sevel on election day by lankan Muslim terrorist from morroco – taking about mother what?? polygamist and what character??

        The dawn of Lanka freedom is great for us…
        let the Buddhist statutes world wide be protected
        and Muslims looked upon with indifference.

    This is victory for the West. Ranil too can celebrate. Tamils do not have anything. Still they will have a say in president election process. Other than that Tamil did not have a voice in Westminster style parliament. This is done. But if they want to help Tamils to come out of oppression, West need to have this Parliament scrapped. This is what damaged the Tamils liveness in the Island. This only for the majority community. Anything overly good for the majority community is, logically, oppressing the minority community.

    Thank you Mr. President, thank you Ranil, thank you to UNP and all the rest who collectively supported and put in whatever small effort to get these Constitutional Amendments passed with such overwhelming majority. This victory for the masses is only half the battle that was won. Still waiting for the naming and shaming of those who robbed the country of its resources and flourished on the drug trade. They even made ordinary citizens pay for their luxurious and high flying lifestyles. As minorities, we (Muslims and Christians) were subjected to attacks and hate speech by bigots and goons like BBS and RB, whilst the Police and soldiers were made impotent and ineffective and looked the other side when homes were being looted and everything was going up in flames. Hopefully we could expect some justice tp be served now that the judiciary has been made independent, and all the country’s citizens will be treated equal before the law.

    Amid all the euphoria it is worth remembering that Sri Lanka had a similar parliamentary system before 1977. It did not prevent nepotism, bribery and corruption from occurring. Good governance depends as much on there being upright and sincere politicians as on there being checks and balances. How many upright and sincere politicians do we have? I cannot think of any.
