The Cabinet has decided to appoint an Expert Committee headed by Romesh de Silva PC to prepare the preliminary drafts for a new Constitution, co-cabinet spokesman and Minister Udaya Gammanpila said today.

The committee comprises of Romesh De Silva PC (Chairman), Gamini Marapana PC, Manohara De Silva PC, Sanjeewa Jayawardena PC, Prof. Nazeema Kamurdin, Dr. A Sarveswaran, Samantha Ratwatte PC, Prof. Wasantha Senevirathne and Prof. G.L. Peiris.

Though the government expects to introduce the 20th Amendment to the Constitution on a priority basis repealing the 19th Amendment, it will take another two months and the new Constitution will come after a minimum of two years, Minister Gammanpila said.
