        AKD is taking the JVP down a rabbit hole and distracting everyone from the big issues which is the crashing economy and economic war far by the Washington Consensus which want to and is in the process of setting up of a US military base in Trincomalee with help of its puppet Bondscam Ranil and his financially illiterate butterflies who control the economy.
        Fact is that the Executive Presidency powers are greatly reduced by the 19th amendment and the President is a lame duck and the only barrier to Bondscam Ranil’s further scams and selling off Lanka to his Trumpland Backers.
        JVP and AKD seems to have been paid off to play pucks by the same Trumpland handlers who control Bondscam Ranil and Sumanthiran.
        Long live miracle of modayas!

          JVP has lost the plot , wasting time on a non-starter project to abolish the Presidency at this time when the presidency is clearly a Lame Duck position.

          AKD has become holier than the Pope, playing Constitutional games like Bondscam Ranil and TNA to feel that he is part of the while collar political class.

          Seems AKD is desperate to run for President but the whole 20th Amendment is a waste of time now that the President is a lame duck due to 19th Amendment!!!

    To abolish the Executive Presidency, first of all, all the Provincial Councils must be abolished.
    Opportunistic good for nothing JVP a bane to the Country.

      “Opportunistic good for nothing JVP a bane to the Country.”

      You maybe right.
      However if JVP is opportunists how would you describe the Mahindawamsa, war criminals, robber barons, election riggers, nobblers of A to Z, ……………………………. plain racists, ………………

      Provincial Councils are directly linked to Indo Sri Lanka agreement. You should stop picking a fight with Hindia.

    The architect of the Presidential and the preference voting system, JRJ is the biggest traitor Sri Lanka had and will ever have. His objective was to have the UNP winning all elections and never cared for the future of the country. It has created so much corruption in our political system and created monsters such as Chandrika, Rajapakse and even the present president. Everyone is talking about a change but after coming to power they conveniently forget about it. I feel it is only the JVP which has a genuine interest in scrapping this corrupt system. Preferential voting system too has ensured that only rich businessmen, thugs and other dealmakers who can spend a lot of money over the entire district can win an election. No decent, educated person with limited funds can aspire to be a parliamentarian.

      “JRJ is the biggest traitor Sri Lanka had and will ever have.”

      Why?
      If all the politicians and the voters are honest, they wouldn’t have let JR to use the corrupt system subsequently.

      It seems the voters and politicians not patriots after all.

      Please stop using the cheap word traitor because no sane minded person in this island has defined the word properly.

    If they abolish executive presidency, the PM should be elected island wide and not one just elected from an electrical district. If not it is going from fradulent Parliamentary system more in to FRaud. Ranil and his govt does not have anything to show so he is using thee executive presidency which he never will get and only way he gets is buy pushing away the PResident who appointed him to be the PM. Ranil was pushing away CBK and Maithripala who were the incumbent president who appointed Ranil as the PM. So much for FIVE TIME ACHIEVEMENTS..

      “If they abolish executive presidency, the PM should be elected island wide and not one just elected from an electrical district. “

      I like your idea.lot of sense in it.Anyway better get rid of the presidency first.Then think about an amendment to the constitution for an island wide elected PM.

        It might be another joke.

        Instead of elected president, an elected PM; oh boy, it doesn’t have sense.

        It won’t make any difference.

        It may drag us for further chaos.

          real revolutionist

          If PM is the leader of the whole country,he should be elected from the whole country.For example ranil might find it more difficult to be the PM as his rural vote is less than his urban vote.However the presidency has to be abolished as its use by date is over.Only hakeem,bathiudin and mano ganeshan seem to be resisting it now.

      D.E.P, while agreeing to most your valid points, I would disagree to the point of whitewashing JRJ of being a decent guy. He is the total reverse of being decent when you consider his handling of the 1983 riots/pogrom he organised against the innocent Tamil citizens. We saw the ugliness of trumpeting the Sinhala Fascist ideology how the ordinary shop keepers and local residents were dragged into the streets and burnt them alive. The same techniques are employed by the same group of people, in the continuity of the Sinhala Fascism backed and promoted by Ruling ELITE Govigama family members, in the same vicious plans. Like how JR used Cyril Maththew and the Racist Monk ELLE Gunawangsa ( the murderous bugger still lives and gives moral support to the new avatar Gnanasara and the Sinhala Racist elements). JR was a Freemason and the Freemasons are the ones who are controlling the world today. Zionism is one of their inventions… like the Communism, Socialism, Capitalism, Racism etc. The VOA in Iranawila was a gift by Freemason to Freemason. The same Zionists are running the WAR ON ISLAM which we saw Rajapakse giving the leadership until now. Alutgama, Digana are the samples he showed thru his brother GOTA. Sira becoming the President is also a game and see how the Govigama Fraternity brought the rejected Mahinda into the fore again. Now he is the Opposition Leader post, which even Karu J played a role in securing this post to the criminal MR. When R Sampanthan challenged Karu defended MR. and that is the divisive game of the GOVIGAMA MAFIA fratenity. Only they can rule…… not anyone else. We can see Zionism written all over the place in this political games that are being played throughout a 70+ years.

    JVPers!! you are first in every move in making the bad better. The country is rotten to core .
    No 1 move was in turning around the Sillisena Jarapakshi Combo Fake government by going to Supreme Court with the petition along with few learned Patriots.
    No 2 move should be the Abolition of the Executive Presidency. Let’s hope they will succeed.
    Once upon a time you were hated by all , but also people shed tears for the loss of thousands of young lives destroyed at young age due to their beliefs were massacred by the government troops.
    Why ? There was no law and order then as now.
    One makes mistakes and realises and move forward to make a better country to live by all is great.
    Can JVP be pardoned for their violent past ??
    We Srilankans are at the CROSS ROADS surrounded by the worst Crooks and Criminals and Liars in and out of our Sacred Temple of Rule called the Parliament.
    These VERMINS OF OUR NATION should be Eliminated from the seat of Power then only we can move forward .
    Can any other Party do better for the nation.???
    Something to mull over !!
    Good Luck JVP.

    Many factors cumulatively contributed to the plight we are in, ONE of which is the Executive Presidency. It was moulded to propagate the interest of a few.
    .
    What exactly is the JVP plan? Has JVP convinced the layLankans and clergy?
    A cold-turkey replacement may be harmful.
    How about our other banes?

      For a decent group of TRUE Leaders, whether it is president or PM or not, does not matter. In Sri lanka, present situation without the President is important then NGOs and their funding agencies can have their way. But, the international community has lot of experience all over the world by ruining many countries and even continents.In a country in which the all parliamentarians are Professional corrupts,. Criminals, Money Launderers and Fraudsters AT LEAST ONE POLITICIAN SHOULD BE ELECTED BY ISLAND WIDE VOTES. JVP us following the same SLFP, UNP, TNA pattern of politics. Make both the President and the PM one politician and he should be elected by the island wide vote and not from an electoral district. If EP is cancelled, International community does not need MCC and Lot of Dollars, NGOs will do it for rupees, they forget dollars. .

    Ranil, Mangala and all others are worried about their lives. NGOs are brainwashing people to suit the International community needs. MCC with the help of Politicians, mostly Mangala, Ranil, Rajitha Senarathne etc., etc are finishing off Sri lanka in order to create another american colony. work like RATS and cry for lives you never get. Your children become animals, Husbands becomes clowns and wives think Sri lanka is ROME at thee end that is women go in the evening looking for sex. or the present western culture.

    Executive presidency from it’s inception was corrupt; JRJ began it thinking UNP would continue it for ever and to implement his Neo-liberal Policies when India wanted LTTE to subdue JRJ’s Pro-USA policies. I think USA is as usual they exploit the weaker country as much as they can. Ranil tried it as he can not win, so the Great Philanthropist this time also do not fight for EP because bond Scam and MCC screwed him up. I SAY not think NAGANANDA KODITHUWAKKU is also a DECOY of the COMMON CANDIDATE PROJECT.

    If you asked me who are INDIVIDUALS who destroyed our country I would say JR Jayawardene, Wijeweera and Prabhakaran in that order. The harm JR did is thousand times the damage caused by Wijeweera and Prabhakaran put together.

    President should be able to take immediate action, against any kind of attack on Srilankans.
    ,
    For this he or she should have the authority to access the three forces and the Police at any given time.
    ,
    Only the parliament should have power to stop the same.
    ,
    Judiciary system should have power to act responsibly over the decisions of the parliament if required.
    ,
    Provincial councils cannot make alliances with other councils.
    ,
    And all councils should have the same power, which can be taken away from the speaker any time, if they act unlawfully, until the parliament decides how to move forward.
    ,
    The police will not answer to the councils but only answer to the Police commission, which will be only managed by the parliament.
    ,
    Without the above conditions it will be dangerous to remove the executive Presidency in my humble opinion.
    ,
    The action taken towards the same, by the JVP is definitely praise worthy.

    It’s a big YES for abolishing the Presidential style for SL.
    Provincial Councils limited to 5 with enough powers to bring real developments is needed as well.
    Abolish Governors for the Provinces as well ASAP.
    We do not want the Provincial Councils as is to have elections at the present time as well as Presidential Election for this year. We should cease the Post of the President as and when it finishes in November this year.
    The Parliament takes control from then on till the next Parliamentary election.
    What we need is a MEGA Referendum on how to bring constitutional changes so that Judiciary will have more power and above the corrupt dictators.
    Minorities rights enshrined in the NEW constitution

    Surely JVP knows that gunning for abolition of Executive Presidency will bring publicity.
    It is quixotic and they know it.
    .
    One of our banes is horse-trading. This is made worse with this list MPs and fence-jumping.
    Will JVP, for a start, make fence-jumping illegal?

    Sri Lanka, to be precise all Sri Lankan ought to realise the Executive Presidency will not work in a democratic system. Past four decades of rotten leadership by the ones who held the highest office has proved that amendment to the constitution is a must, giving the Parliament the greater say. Again , it is up to all Sri Lankan to elect good people. There is no one currently touted about fills the shoe.

    JRJ was man who led UNP regime change in 1977 by pave way for shifted Neo-Liberal political economic and social order. In fact which that laid different foundation from 1948 by UNP regime who rule an Island out of that half of 70 years of “independence ” of Sri lanka.

    We as nation post-colonial era that UNP failing invalidate attack on British colonial cruelties. While UNP by in power of colonial state of that White man rule disrespect people of all Sri Lankan no such indices as GDP growth ,literacy, poverty of masses in rural poor that eradication ,life expectancy as well as overcome drought and crop failures unaddressed by UNP leadership.

    The history of UNP rule later by other in any case cannot be reduces to some sort of political game of comparing misdeeds in different eras 1948 to 1956,( UNP of DS & Dudley John) 1965 to 1970,( Dudley JRJ) and 1977 to 1994, ( JRJ R.P and Wjitunge ); then 2001 to RW of UNP regime 2004 and after 2015 January 8th to up to now except 50 days in 2018 Octemeber ……..that rule by own success of UNP’S.

    The political environment is an Island so tragedy since 2015 by UNP rule that our citizens and other political parties is woefully ignorant of the realities of UNP that order of Neo-Liberalism ;and what it meant to subject People of Islanders.
    An Eventually democracy and development continuing decline since 2015 January 8th which growing poverty and economic crisis serious accountability of neo-Liberal of Presidential system of governances that become more weaker state after 19th Ameadeant of Republic Constitution passes by UNP leadership in 2015
