Government drafts Constitution according to Al-Hussein’s whims: Wimal
National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa, yesterday, charged that the government was in a hurry to draft a new Constitution, to satisfy the whims and fancies of UN Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein.
Delivering a lecture on the Constitution being drafted by the government, he said the government’s plan was to pass the new Constitution in the Parliament in November and then hold a referendum in January.
He said UNHR Commissioner Al-Hussein had outlined, in a statement on July 28, 2016, these plans of the government to pass the Constitution.
He said, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe gave contradictory responses to Opposition MPs’ queries about the Constitution in Parliament.
“The danger exists of a federal Constitution which could divide the country,” he said.
He warned that the national anthem, the national flag, the unitary status of the country and the foremost place given to Buddhism — which were all guaranteed in the existing Constitution — would be undermined by the new Constitution, which would also decentralise power.
He said the country could be divided by the Western Countries by means of the present government even without waging war.

oh here we go again another joke from the guy who said he was fasting but feasted with lemmon puff
(Lemon Puff Sahodaraya) I cant understand why these kind of criminal Jokers are let free to walk around creating unwanted problems this guy was the poster boy of his master now he has become a very rich guy
from where this money came only god knows May be a international conspiracy
Hon Wimal Weerawansa is a brilliant political strategist.
Following the conclusion of the war of the century against the terrorist Tamils, the Rajapaksa family came under severe pressure from the white men who control stolen wealth, worldwide.
The Rajapaksa family tipped towards the Chinese for money to develop the land while Hon WW became the Chief Strategist to keep the white wolves from the door.
With Bedumvaadaya, episode 2 knocking on our door under the leadership of Sampanthan, Sumanthiran, Vigneswaran, Rudrakumaran combine, the draft Constitution drawn by the Prince of Darkness, UN Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein, will divide the country.
Only Hon Wimal has an understanding of the manipulations. Go Wimal, Go.
Causing unnecessary fear among the people on the Constitutional proposals and then saying tall tales is unacceptable and unhealthy, the Siyam Nikaye Malwatta Chapter Mahanayake Thibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera told MP Wimal Weerawansa today.
This had transpired when National Freedom Front (NFF) members including Mr. Weerawansa met the Mahanayakeat the Asgiriya Malwatu Maha Viharaya in Kandy to update him about their stance on Constitutional reforms.
The MP told him that the new Constitution would harm the unitary status of the country.
The Mahanayake told Mr. Weerawansa that President Mairthripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had assured him that any proposal that encourages separatism won’t be included in the Constitution. Since the Constitution will be put to a referendum, the thera asked him and other NFF members not to be unnecessarily alarmed about it.
WW obviously not only a political strategist but also a fine criminal strategist, all knows that but I still wondering why these kolavery for these people still believing this joker.
Thank you WW for your vigilance. Sri Lanka is facing a very dark period today with the hardcore Tamil separatists like Vigneswaran, Sampathan, Sumitharan, GTF Rudrakumaran, etc. applying their sneaky machinations in the background and the divide-&-conquer westerners, particularly the outgoing Obama “Regime Change Gurus R Us” administration, and of course the UN which is pathetically the lap dog of the US, all doing their best to permanently dismantle the cultural, religious and political safeguards of the majority Sinhela Buddhists of Sri Lanka. Majority Sinhela Buddhists of this country must now rise up and resist this impending disaster as it is their ancestors who over the past 2.5 thousand years that made the enormous sacrifice in life and limb to assure we have (so far) the sovereign SL as we see it today. Viva WW!
