Chairman of the Public Representations Committee on Constitutional Reform Attorney Lal Wijenayake says the public has not delivered a mandate against the process of introducing a new Constitution.
Speaking to NewsRadio the Chairman said the public has objected to the government’s failure to fulfil its promises through the results of the 2018 Local Authority Election.
Wijenayake noted the public is disgruntled due to the government’s failure to fulfil promise of establishing new Constitutional reforms.
The Attorney added the high cost of living and the corrupt not being brought to book were other reasons as to why the public was discontent with the government claiming punishing wrongdoers was a main promise made by the government.
Lal Wijenayake said he didn’t believe that many would vote for a change in government or to bring former President MP Mahinda Rajapaksa to power.
However he noted the objection could be change by analyzing the cause for the opposition and taking action to change it.
