SF: DNA Will Fight For The People

Sep 8, 2010 12:01:47 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Former Army Commander and Democratic National Alliance (DNA) parliamentarian Sarath Fonseka said today (8) is a dark day for democracy and that the party will continue its fight on behalf of the people even though it has only seven members in the House.

He told a press conference in parliament today that the legislation on the constitutional amendments is the last nail in the coffin of democracy.

He noted that a Constitution in a country was to protect the rights of the people and not the government or the President.
Fonseka added that it was regrettable that the main opposition party is not clear in its policies, as it currently lacked strong policies.
