 Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister Ali Sabry said on Monday a constitutional amendment bill trimming presidential powers is expected to become law in a couple of weeks.

“The new amendment will reduce presidential powers and bring back participatory governance. Sri Lanka is also in the process of drafting out a new anti-terror law that will be in line with international best practices,” Sabry told reporters at the foreign ministry.

The bill is yet to be voted on in parliament. It requires a two-thirds majority in the house to become law.
