The Samagi Jana Balawegaya the runner up to the Ruling Party has unanimously agreed to stand against the 20th Amendment to Constitution, in a move to strengthen democracy of the country.
The decision has been made during a meeting held under the patronage of Party Leader and Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa at Hall No 02 of the Parliamentary premises today (07).
The resolution was tabled by SJB Matara district MP Buddhika Pathirana and was confirmed by SJB Kurunegala district MP Asok Abeysinghe.
At this degree, the SJB is of the strong view that the democratic principles introduced via the 19th Amendment to Constitution should further be empowered thereby introducing a “19 plus”.
Accordingly, the SJB is set to hold a public protest under the slogan “Together with 19” (Dahanamayen Idiriyata) at 4 pm tomorrow (08) near the monument of the late Maduluwawe Sobhitha Thero at Japan Mithrathwa Road.
