Jathika Hela Urumaya Parliamentarian Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thero said that he has resigned as Chairman of the Divulapitiya Provincial Development Committee, and from all other positions he holds.

Rathana Thero said that he has also handed over his official vehicle and in future he will function as an independent member in parliament.

Rathana Thero added that the government must implement the proposals for the 19th Amendment to the Constitution before the Presidential elections or they will take every possible measure to defeat the President.

Some eight recommendations for the Constitution drafted by the National Council for Better Tomorrow (Pivithuru Hetak Udesa Jathika Sabhawa) including to abolish the executive presidency were presented to the government, two weeks ago.
