Wimal, Gammanpila, Vasudeva to support dual citizenship in 20A

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP)MPs Wimal Weerawanda, Udaya Gammanpila and Vasudeva Nanayakkara who were previously against the clause in the 20th Amendment to the Constitution permitting dual citizens to hold public office have decided to support it.

This was revealed by Minister Wimal Weerawansa at a press conference held a short while ago today (22).

According to him, while they were opposed to the dual citizenship clause, they had attended a discussion with the President. In the discussion, the President Gotabaya Rajapksa has promised to reinstate the bar on dual citizens holding public office when a new Constitution is introduced next year.
