Sep 2, 2010 4:59:46 AM - itnnews.lk

Minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa has said that the 18th amendment to the constitution will be presented in Parliament with several essential amendments.

He said they will introduce another amendment in Parliament. Through this a President would not be limited only for two terms of Parliament.

He said this is not an antidemocratic measure as the President will be elected through polls. He said that a democratic country cannot be developed without political stability. He said that vote amendments would be essential features for the progress of this country.

The Minster expressed these views at the inauguration of an outlet of the Timber Corporation at Moneragala. 1.2 million rupees was spent on the construction of the sales centre. The Minister also initiated construction of a hostel for the employees. It will cost one million rupees.
