The proposal brought forward by the government to remove the emergency regulations currently being imposed in the country, is a victory for the people of the nation who value democracy, the JVP stated.
General Secretary of the JVP, Tilvin Silva showed appreciation for the move despite claims that it came late, stating that his party continuously pressured the government regarding the removal of these laws.
He further added that in order to ensure democracy in the country the government should also take measures to remove laws such as the Terrorism Prevention Act.
