Mahinda Gets Two Thirds, SLMC Supports Constitutional Change

Aug 27, 2010 9:30:01 AM - thesundayleader.lk

While not necessarily crossing over, this gives President Mahinda Rajapaksa the 2/3 majority necessary in Parliament to change the Constitution. It also demonstrates Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe’s weak hold over his coalition.
