Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian MA Sumanthiran says the report presented before the Constitutional Assembly should be fast tracked and discussed.
Speaking during the Parliament debate today the MP said all parties consented to introducing a new Constitution.
The report by an expert committee of the Steering Committee on Constitutional Reforms, on proposals pertaining to the new Constitution, was presented in before the Constitutional Assembly by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe this morning.
The Steering committee convened for a session on Wednesday and decided that the Constitutional Assembly will convene this morning.
The document presented before the Constitutional Assembly today is only a report by experts containing proposals and not a draft of the proposed new Constitution.
