‘Aragalaya’ by independent MPs formed current Govt – Justice Minister

Despite severe accusations that Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe is ‘not focusing’ on the important topic of removing the powers of the executive presidency, he has taken firm focus on introducing the 21th Amendment to the Constitution and extracting good clauses from 19A and 20A.

Apart from that, he added that the President should resign of his own free will.
