The draft of the proposed 20th Amendment to the Constitution enables dual citizens to enter parliament, it is learnt.

Also, the proposed piece of legislation does not make provision for the setting up of a new senior government post like a Deputy Prime Ministerial post.

The removal of the restrictions imposed on dual citizens entering parliament by the 19th Amendment to the Constitution will pave the way for founder/theoretician of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), Basil Rajapaksa to re-enter parliament.
