An attempt by the government to do away with Article 31 (2) of the Constitution to enable the incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa to contest another term has triggered a howl of protest from some quarters. Among the opponents of the abolition of the so-called no-third-term provision are some critics who genuinely feel for the country's democracy and fear that if a president is allowed to go on contesting indefinitely, the executive genie will get out of the bottle once and for all. But, others are opposing the government move for some other reasons.
