President Maithripala Sirisena says that he is prepared to amend any disputed clauses in the 19th Amendment through a parliamentary process.

However, President has affirmed that this shall be done without damaging its core values, stated the President’s Media Division.

A statement issued by the President’s Media Unit said that if there are any procedural weaknesses in the 19th amendment, the President is dedicated to make relevant amendments while protecting and strengthening the core values and the democratic essence of the 19th amendment.

It further said that following the appointment of Maithripala Sirisena as the President on January 08, 2015 the 19th amendment to the constitution was passed in order to resolve the problematic situation which had prevailed in the country for 3 decades with regard to democracy.

The 19th amendment had provided a number of positive results to the Sri Lankan society such as the establishing of independent commissions and the strengthening of the democratic institution structure.
