Excerpt:
The 1977 constitution, which experts say has given more power to the federal government, is blamed for the civil war which killed more than 100,000 people ... But the island nation's Buddhist leaders are opposed to introducing a new constitution, for fear it may reduce their influence among the population of 21 million, about 70 percent of whom are Buddhist.
