WHO AM I ?

I am Kamal Nissanka,a lawyer by proffession. I undertake work in the fields of civil,administrative and constitutional law.

I have a natural love for politics since my student days. I am a graduate of Political Science from the University of  Peradeniya. I joined hands with a group of liberal minded upper middle class intellectuals in 1987 to register the Liberal Party before the Election Commissioner.

I was the researcher for the party in 1987 and later became the edidor of the party news paper. our party contested the first ever provincial council elections in 1988 in the Western Province, The party won two seats in Gampaha district.

The party was against the involvement of the Indian forces but supported the provincial council system. During this period party organized number of  seminars on a proposed constitution.

“Ideas for Constitutional Reform” , a publication edited by late Dr Chanaka Amaratunaga was the outcome of those seminars.
