News: PREPARING THE GROUND FOR CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM
Posted Date: 13/12/2016 (Tuesday)
There seems to be a rethinking on the part of the government regarding the nature and extent of constitutional reform. The SLFP is of the stance that the Constitution should be amended without going in for a referendum. SLFP media spokesman Minister Dilan Perera said “We have spoken with the President and taken a clear decision on this. Electoral reforms must take place and a new system introduced and we believe in maximum devolution of power within a unitary state. We have also made it clear that we will not support the merger of provinces or to lessen the power of the governors to make it a nominal position.” For its part, the UNP has taken the position that it would support a system where the office of executive president would continue with special powers that the 19th Amendment to the Constitution had conferred.

News: Phantoms of Mahinda Rajapaksa and Sri Lanka’s reign of terror
Posted Date: 11/12/2016 (Sunday)
Mahinda Rajapaksa sits at a desk in his party office beneath a photo of himself. He’s not especially tall but solid in the chest and arms; like an old rugby prop, his head seems to rest on his shoulders without much need for a neck. He’s never seen in public without his brown scarf, supposedly signifying the sweaty rags of Sri Lanka’s hard-toiling farmers. On his fingers this man of the people wears three chunky gold rings and on his wrist a bracelet of jade balls. Everyone here still calls him Mr President.

While this Sangha. . . has democracy, it has neither [a] special country nor nation nor caste. To such a society which has no country, nation, or caste, every human being is the same. . . . Those who fight against the Tamils are not Buddhists. —Naravila Dhammaratana[1]

News: Reconciliation in Sri Lanka: Mission Impossible?
Posted Date: 11/12/2016 (Sunday)
During the past few years much has been spoken and written about the need for reconciliation between the different communities in Sri Lanka. The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) was appointed by President Mahinda Rajapakse to hear what was needed to be done to bring about reconciliation among the tattered communities in the country. This Commission’s recommendations did not receive the earnest consideration they deserved. Instead that regime continued to indulge in activities that made the possibility of a reconciliation become more remote.

News: On Sri Lankan issues, late CM pursued a strong line Her Assembly sought international probe into the alleged war crimes by the island nation
Posted Date: 09/12/2016 (Friday)
Former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who received tributes from a wide spectrum of political leaders of Sri Lanka, had always pursued a strong line on matters concerning the neighbouring country, though she did oscillate on the issue of Eelam war and Tamil refugees. In the initial years, after the Black July of 1983 when anti-Tamil riots broke out across Sri Lanka, the AIADMK leader had supported the cause of Tamil extremists, especially the LTTE. It was the period when the Central government was also supportive of the rebels. In the run-up to the dismissal of the DMK ministry in January 1991, she had turned her ire against the LTTE and urged the Centre to remove the DMK regime on the ground that the LTTE was carrying out “illegal and clandestine activities” with the “connivance and encouragement” of the State government.
