20A will limit democracy and sovereignty of country – NIO Chair
By Nabiya Vaffoor
The 20th Amendment to the Constitution will form the basis of a dictatorial rule, said, National Intellectual Organisation (NIO) Chairman, Professor Chandana Abeyratne.
“The 20th Amendment is a step to contract the limited space of democracy and the sovereignty of the public given by the 19th Amendment,” he claimed. Prof. Abeyratne further stated the 20th Amendment harms main aspects important to the long-term survival of finance, human rights and law and order in the country. Prof. Abeyratne expressed these views on 20 October while addressing a Media briefing at the NIO.
