One country, one law as eyes set on 13th A

Minister Weerasekara is someone ideologically opposed to power devolution or power sharing. He is a strong believer of the unitary character of the Constitution with central control. He is also someone with a hardline approach in this respect.  The handpicking of him to handle the Provincial Council system speaks for itself as a result. Undoubtedly, the government is bracing for a fresh look at the Provincial Councils which has remained defunct since 2017 due to the  inability to conduct elections over a technical issue in the law. 


The Government’s intention has been sensed by the advocates of the 13th  Amendment which was incorporated consequently to the 1987 Indo-Lanka Accord. It is a bilateral treaty. As such the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), in its meeting with new Indian High Commissioner Gopal Baglay, discussed about it recently after the general elections.
