Sumanthiran has said so, in a media statement, on the 20th Amendment to the Constitution, proposed by the JVP, seeking the abolition of the executive presidency.
Sumanthiran said: “We support the abolishing of the executive presidency. This system was introduced in 1978 and ever since it has lead to a lot of problems.
In 2015, President Sirisena promised to scrap the post. Just like this the ethnic problem has created issues in Sri Lanka. A lot of people have died because of this.
So equal attention should be paid to solving this as well.
