Minister John Amarathunga says the United National Party has not submitted proposals to the constitutional amendment process. He said that a discussion or a proposal has not been submitted to the working committee in this regard. He said this during a function today to launch electronic entry tickets to wildlife parks today. He said that a two thirds majority should be obtained in parliament for a constitutional amendment. Some people accuse that the proposals would divide the country with the aim of getting narrow political gains. The set of constitutional amendment proposals were prepared after holding talks with various stakeholders. The country needs a set of proposals that would protect right of all communities. Minister John Amarathunga said that a committee would be appointed in due course to prepare the proposals of the United National Party.
