The draft 20th Amendment to Constitution may pass in Parliament after changes are taken place in the Committee step, SLPP MP Premnath C. Dolawatta stressed. 

Otherwise, there would be no need for a Parliament, he added, speaking to media yesterday (21).

"Had it been drafted with a very accurate content, we do not need to make laws do we? That would be not the case, would it? This is about lawmaking, inviting all for a wider discusssion," the MP said. 

Therefore, the draft amendment may pass in Parliament after considering the recommendations of the Committee appointed by the Prime Minister, the MP further said.
