Q The ruling party is seeking a two-thirds majority to change the Constitution. How do you see this?
The government in the guise of getting a two-thirds majority is trying to reintroduce something similar to the 18th Amendment. Successive governments under the 1978 Constitution came into power advocating a change of the Executive Presidency. Now I feel we have a balanced Constitution, and the President’s powers are controlled. But the ruling party is seeking two-thirds, and not telling the people what amendments they intend to bring. This is wrong. If they are seeking a two-thirds majority, the people must know what they intend to do. In the past, we saw what governments did with such a majority. So I don’t think it’s a good idea for people to consider giving a two-thirds majority.
