Mahinda Rajapaksa will lose his privileges as a former President, if he contests at the next general election, Cabinet Spokesperson Rajitha Senaratne affirmed.

The observation was made at the weekly press briefing held at the Government Information Department on Thursday (28).

“I don’t think the former President is ‘mentally retarded’ to take such a decision. Rajapaksa will loss his privileges, if he contests at the election and become a Parliamentarian,” Senaratne said.

He also went on to say that the Cabinet on Wednesday (27) held a lengthy discussion on the 20th Amendment to the Constitution.

“Some 15 proposals were presented at the meeting. There was a suggestion to increase the number of parliamentary seats from 225 to 255,” he added.

Senaratne also said that a committee will be appointed to monitor the changes and its report will be submitted to the President and the Prime Minister within next few weeks.
