The present amendment seeks to remove the Constitutional Council, legalise all appointments made in breach of the seventeenth amendment to the constitution, and restore the status quo ante as it existed prior to the enactment of the seventeenth amendment.

18th amendment /Statement
18th amendment is submission to autocracy, says Mano Ganesan

18th amendment aims at reversing all what this country gained during the last decades against the politicization of the state services. It tends to handover total power to the proposed ‘term limit-less’ executive presidency by removing all the hard-earned constitutional checks and balances.

Civil Rights Movement Statement on 18th Amendmentt

A President’s immunity is not for life. A powerful deterrent on a President committing an offence while in power is the knowledge that, once his or her terms ends, which end will be at a time in the foreseeable future, liability under the normal law of the land will resume.
