“Mr. Dissanayake is a capable leader, whose appointment strengthens the progressive forces of this country.” says the TNA.

Issuing a statement the TNA said today; “The JVP has struggled to alleviate oppression and suffering, especially in the South, and Mr. Dissanayake has dedicated himself to that cause. He has displayed high standards of parliamentary practice and has been a vocal advocate of the fundamental principles of equality, democratic government, justice and the rule of law. In particular, we welcome the JVP’s rejection of racist politics, its continued calls for truth and justice for those tortured, killed and disappeared over the past 43 years and its commendable campaign against corruption.  He has rightly called for the confinement of the military to barracks, for impartial and expeditious investigations into the mass graves at Matale and Mannar. He has also called for the restoration of judicial independence, law and order. The TNA has consistently advocated on these very issues.

“The TNA calls on the JVP to work with it towards the eradication of oppression and tyranny. The TNA looks forward to working with the JVP and Mr. Dissanayake in the struggle to build a pluralist society based on the principles of truth, justice and equality, with lasting reconciliation for all.”

    AKD is a very capable leader but neither SLFP nor UPF would tolerate a guy with hi charisma. Is the best person to appoint as the common candidate?
    If I am stand correctly informed this guy was given ministry with the coalition agreement “SLFP and JVP”. First day at his office there was a gig party celebration organized for him “with the public expense” He did not consume alcohol that day and had a cup of Plain Tea and asked the cost to be shared by the once who organized and not to penalise the public!
    I do think MR popularity is over whelming high but AKD is the man for the challenge but western countries will never ever support him due his communist background.

    Mr.Dissanayake. Congratulations.

    I was also happy to read your presentation “Our Vision” in lucid and clear terms. This is a far contrast to the normal publication by the Left parties.

    Why do you not open it for discussion with the public.There are many details that you have missed.
