Cabinet powerless under Executive Presidency – Anura Kumara

Cabinet powerless under Executive Presidency – Anura Kumara

The Executive Presidency gives no teeth to the Cabinet of Ministers and they remain powerless, said  Leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and Chief Opposition Whip Anura Kumara Dissanayake, yesterday (16).


Speaking at the ‘Venasaka Arabuma (Start of a Change)’ Conference held at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute Dissanayake  said, “Cabinet, Parliament and the Judiciary are institutions which maintain democracy and we assume that they take many decisions by themselves. But the truth is that the Executive Presidency has made all of these institutions powerless.”

He added that most of the criticisms against the proposed 20th Amendment to the Constitution were based on racism.
