THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION WAS ADOPTED BY THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OF
THE UNIVERSITY OF PERADENIYA – COLOMBO CHAPTER ON 26.4.2015

“Alumni Association of the University of Peradeniya – Colombo Chapter paid serious attention to the news item appeared in the newspapers that an amendment is to be proposed at the Committee Stage of the Parliamentary debate on the 19th amendment to the Constitution to the effect that six members required to be appointed under Article 41A (1) (e) & (f) shall be appointed from among the members of the Parliament and the Alumni Association – Colombo Chapter unanimously resolved to appeal to the honorable Members of Parliament to desist from presenting such an amendment and in the event such an amendment is presented NOT TO VOTE in favour of that amendment because such an amendment will completely destroy the independence/ impartiality of the Constitutional Council.

This appeal is made as the appointment as members of persons of eminence and integrity who have distinguished themselves in public or professional life and who are not members of any political party will ensure the required independence and political un-biasness of the Commissioners appointed to the Independent Commissions and the persons appointed to the High Posts.”
