The Government does not approve of the constitutional amendments that have been proposed by the Leader of the Opposition as they would change the very republican character of the country and the country would lose its sovereignty and become subservient to international law, Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickremanayaka told Parliament today.
“It would also affect the legislative supremacy of the House,” the Prime Minister said a statement made in response to a speech made earlier by Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.
The UNP has proposed that all international treaties entered into by the Government so far, which are consistent with the laws, be enforceable immediately and any future such international treaties entered into by the Government become enforceable upon presentation to Parliament, Mr.Wickremesinghe told Parliament.
He also said the UNP proposes that any international treaties entered into by the government which contain provisions that are in conflict with the existing law, become enforceable after amending the existing law and where the existing law is insufficient to enforce any such treaty, enabling legislation be passed to make the treaty enforceable.
The UNP has proposed these changes in the wake of the renewal of the GSP + status for the country being hampered as one condition for the renewal of the favourable status is that countries benefiting from these regulations ratify and enforce 27 international conventions relating to good governance and substantial development.
The Prime Minster said that if the proposed amendments are adopted by Parliament, whenever Sri Lanka becomes a party to treaty or convention, or accedes to one, the legal norms contained in such piece of international law would automatically become part of the national law without any further legislative act being performed in the nature of enacting and amending national laws.
“I am advise that this would be an improper interference with the sovereignty of the people of Sri Lanka as recognised by Articles 3 and 4 of the Constitution,”, the Prime Minister said.
