Decisions based on best interests of the country, the need of the hour – BASL

Source

The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) states that in electing the new President, the Members of Parliament now represent the entire electorate of Sri Lanka and must perform this onerous duty respecting the sovereignty of the People and their wishes and uphold democratic values.

"The need of the hour is to take decisions based on the best interests of the country and not the personal or political interests of any individual or political party," a BASL statement notes.

"Members of Parliament must do everything in their power to prevent Sri Lanka from plunging into further chaos and to restore social, political and economic stability," it adds.

The statement further urges "the public to support the early conclusion of the constitutional process and to refrain from any acts that would impinge on the important transition of power taking place in Sri Lanka for the first time in its history."

The BASL also has welcomed that protestors have vacated government premises in view of the impending resignation of the President.
