The Sri Lanka Freedom Party(SLFP) decided not to support any amendments to the Constitution which could harm the country’s unitary character, territorial integrity and sovereignty, Social Empowerment & Welfare Minister S.B.Dissanayake said yesterday. He also noted that the President and the SLFP has decided not to support any amendments which require a referendum.

Speaking to the media in Colombo Dissanayake further noted that the SLFP also has decided not to fully abolish the Executive Presidency. Dissanayake also re-confirmed the SLFP stance that there will be no foreign judges in the domestic mechanism which is to be established to probe the alleged war crimes and human rights violations during the three-decade long conflict.

On Constitutional amendments, Dissanayake said that the SLFP will only support changes which will help further strengthen democracy and the country’s sovereignty.

    BUT, BUt, But, but ……. HOLD-ON GOD-DAMMIT!.

    Will the SLFP rump dominated by Aiyooo Sirisena try to push through Constitutional Amendments that would normally require referendums by FALSELY PRESENTING them as Amendments that do not require referendums????

    I don’t TRUST these Yamapalanaya GOONS even as far as I can THROW A GRAND PIANO!

    They appointed and allowed 6 Consitutional Committess without a majority of well known PATRIOTIC Sinhala Buddhist leaders, and dominated by and packed with SEPARATIST minority leaders to produce the 6 Constitutional Committee Reports that basically amount to the DISSOLUTION of Sri Lanka asa sovereign unitary historical homeland of its majority Sinhala Buddhist People!

    NO PATRIOTIC GOVERNMENT would do so and attempt to DISENFRANCHISE the majority community of their Motherland!

    In short, these are TRAITORS colluding with FOREIGN POWERS and SEPARATIST minorities to destroy our Motherland!

    I DON’T TRUST the Yamapalanaya: They SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED to Amend the Constitution in ANY SHAPE or FORM … PERIOD!
