I am a graduate from the Sri Lankan state university of Sri Jayawardenapura, and with my extensive studies in political science, Economics (and English), and through my work experience as a teacher and sworn translator, having work extensively in related legal and literal work, I have produced this policy and constitutional framework for governance, to be developed and adopted by those who cherish this nation.

This was composed during the youth uprising in 2022, from Galle Face, against the dictatorial and family rule, which plunged the country into an unprecedented economic, with the shortage of most all essential items including fuel, gas, kerosene, milk, medicine, electricity etc., as a result of corruption. This was a period when people stood in long queues to purchase the essentials.
I hereby hope to introduce a democratic framework of governance and environment friendly policies which will help uplift the peoples living standards, protect the environment, heritage and establish peace.

Constitutional Framework

Religion
The government of the Democratice Republic of Sri Lanka shall protect the Buddha sasana.
Environment
The government shall protect the environment and development projects shall only be implemented in a way that does not harm the environment, it’s natural beauty, and it’s bio diversity.
Land
Atleast 1/3 rd. of the land must be allocated for forest and animal conservation. To protect the water sources (springs), for air purification (uphold oxygen percentage), and to protect bio diversity and rare species. We must protect the natural forests and heritage for the future generations.
Another 1/3 of the land shall belong to the government for the roads, public institutes and green gardens, which will help the mental and physical health of all.
The remaining 1/3 of land should be allocated for private occupation of people and institutes, and only the nation’s citizens who are permanent residents can own these lands. Foreigners or foreign institutes can only occupy this land for lease or rent not exceeding 10 years.
The above allocation can also be considered as ½, ¼, ¼.
Law
The natural or universal law of mother nature applies to all individuals equally. In the same manner, in the presence of our law, humans are equal irrespective of race, religion, gender and status or profession. The law shall apply to all equally.

System of governance: A semi-presidential system, or dual executive system
The President, Parliament and judiciary as the three main pillars of democratic governance

Each institute will be independent from each other to some extent but also reliant on each other in some ways, which creates checks and balances and also unity.
Appointments of President , Primeminister and heads of theJudiciary.

The president will be elected by the majority vote of the people. The representatives of the parliament will be selected by an election and the person who commands the most number in parliament will become the prime-minister. The appointments of the judiciary shall happen in the conventional method based on merit and seniority, which should be approved by parliament and the president.

Removal of heads of institutes
Any of the following methods can be applied, to ensure government stability and also flexibility of the constitution.
The removal of any head (president, prime minister or Chief justice) should be done after necessary arrangements have been made to appoint a new head (for example after determining a date for a new election, or in case of judiciary, after naming a new chief justice)
Removal by simple majority
For each of these three institutes, the removal of heads should be approved by two other institutes. For example, to remove a president from power, a majority vote of members of the judiciary (chief justices) and the majority of parliament will be required. Similarly, to remove a prime minister, the majority vote of members of the judiciary (chief justices) and the approval of the president will be required. To remove the Chief Justice, the approval of the president and the majority of the parliament is required.
Removal by 2/3 rds. majority
Or else a president or prime minister can be removed by calling an election, upon the approval of 2/3 rds. majority of the judiciary (2/3 majority vote of the supreme court judges, this section is important to remove a president or prime minister when the both are acting together based on nepotism or cronyism ) or 2/3rds majority of parliament, and similarly a chief justice can be removed by a 2/3rds majority of parliament.
The tasks of President, Prime minister and Judiciary.
The President is the head of state, and declaring war or terminating war shall be done by the approval of the president. The president’s primary task would be to uphold democracy, by ensuring the timely elections, and appointments of the elections commission, and appointments of the judiciary. He will be the ceremonial head.
The prime minister’s tasks would be, heading the legislature and implementing policies and day to day activities of the government service with regard to economy etc. He will appoint a cabinet of minister and is answerable to the parliament.

The Judiciary would be the arbitrator in case of conflicts between other two parties, and will also execute normal judiciary duties for the public.

Financial allocations
Financial allocations are also imperative for the existence of each institute and thus for each institute, it should be approved by the two other institutes. Thus, no institute will have supreme authority and all institutes will be compelled to act in harmony.

Elections.
All election candidates who apply to be a public representative must declare his/her assets, liabilities, educational achievements, other achievements, source of income and source of election finances, and details of court-cases. He/She must provide any further details pertaining to the above if the public request, reasonably before election.
Language
The international language (English), Sinhala and Tamil shall be official languages and shall be used in all government publications.

Population and resource management.
To ensure a healthy quality life, population control and control and conservation of resources is important. Thus, an effective mechanism must be adopted to record statistics and prevent population expansion. the healthy level of population density per square kilometer should be determined.
