Colombo—An eleven-member parliamentary sub-committee has recommended the setting up of a Constitutional Court to settle disputes between the Government and the Provinces as well as among the regions.
The sub committee headed by parliamentarian Dharmalingam Sidharthan (TNA) has asserted that Constitutional Court was required as powers currently enjoyed by Governors would be abolished. The sub committee on Centre Periphery Relations has proposed the Constitutional Court to be represented by all communities , the Federation of National organisations alleged yesterday.
The sub committee led by the former PLOTE leader is one of the six set upto facilitate a Steering Committee headed by Prime minister Ranil Wickremasinghe to formulate a Draft Constitution.An irate Thirangama said the implementation of PLOTE leader’s proposals would result in the division of the country on ethnic lines.

The attorney-at-Law alleged that the Singapore is being implemented now.
