Steps will be taken to abolish the executive presidency, President Maithripala Sirisena assured today (12).
The observation was made while he was speaking at the funeral of late Venerable Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero at the Parliament grounds.
President Sirisena also vowed to make the changes expected by late Sobitha Thero. “Just like Sobitha Thero wanted, in a bid to create a democratic society, and Yahapalanaya, I vow to take every possible measure to abolish the executive presidency,” he added.
