Preliminary Submission by the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) to the Public Representation Commission

22 January 2016, Colombo, Sri Lanka: This submission by the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) outlines our general views on the nature and form of a new constitutional settlement for Sri Lanka. It focuses on the major constitutional issues that are currently the subject of public debate and which featured in the democratic decision of the people of Sri Lanka in the two historic elections of 2015 in both changing the government and mandating the current Parliament to enact a new constitution. We are prepared to submit more detailed explanations and proposals, orally or in writing, if so invited by the Public Representation Commission, the Constitutional Assembly, and/or Parliament.
