Cabinet Committee to study APRC proposals

APRC discussions to continue:

The Cabinet has appointed a Cabinet Committee to seek ways and means of implementing the All Party Representative Committee (APRC) proposals.

Media and Information Minister and Cabinet Spokesman Anura Priyadarshana Yapa addressing the weekly Cabinet press briefing at the Government Information Department Auditorium yesterday said the Cabinet which met on Wednesday, had appointed the committee to discuss and formulate diverse ways and means whereby the APRC proposals would be discussed at length.

“The committee comprising all party leaders in the Cabinet and associated with the APRC, will pursue all ways and means on how the 13th Amendment could be implemented in relation to the APRC proposals. The committee’s decisions will be made public shortly,” he said.

He added that they will make sure that the Provincial Council for the East and the Governor and the Interim Advisory Council for the North would be appointed.

Meanwhile, the APRC in a press release said it met on Monday January 28 as scheduled.

After a critical review of recent events, it was decided to proceed with discussions to finalise the set of proposals that would be the basis for a new Constitution and provide a final solution to the National question. Ideas were exchanged on what should go into the agenda for future meetings and an agreement was reached on this matter.

Interest was expressed on the desirability of studying the constitutional set up in some countries like Britain, Spain and Germany.

The hope was expressed that the President and the Government would speedily and maximally extend the implementation of the 13th Amendment to the present Constitution.
