Politics SLPP-appointed Commissions would be above board - PM

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said today (6), as there were questions regarding the independence of Commissions appointed by the previous United National Front-led regime, a new Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Government will strive to set up Commissions with integrity that cannot be questioned.

He said the SLPP-led alliance was seeking a two-thirds majority in the new Parliament after the 5 August General Election, to change the system of setting up independent Commissions, the overhauling of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, as well as attempting to introduce much-needed Amendments to the Constitution.

Rajapaksa made these remarks while addressing a SLPP political rally in Weeraketiya, Medamulana.
