Appointments Of Governors Raise Serious Concerns Over Sirisena’s Plans For Elections

The appointment of five new Governors have raised disturbing questions over President Maithripala Sirisena’s commitment to holding free and fair elections as all newly-appointed Governors have strong political involvements in the provinces to which they have been appointed.

Sirisena

The tradition – the unwritten rule – is that the Governor is from outside the province for which he is governor, especially when the appointee is an active politician. This is to avoid problems in conducting free and fair elections with a Governor wielding immense power to interfere and obstruct the work of the Election Commission during elections.

Two of the most glaringly offensive appointments involve those of M.L.A.M. Hizbullah, National List MP from Katankudi and State Minister of Highways and Road Development as Governor of Eastern Province, and that of Azath Salley, the flamboyant former UPFA Deputy Mayor of Colombo.

Hisbullah has resigned his MP and Deputy Minister posts effective 4 Jan, 2019, to be free to take up his new appointment as the Governor of Eastern Province where he has vested electoral interests. Salley, active in Colombo’s Municipal politics, is also in a position to interfere in elections within the Western Province.

Even the appointments of Sarath Ekanayake as Governor of North Central Province is questionable given that he was active as the Chief Minister of the neighbouring Central Province. Likewise, Peshala Jayarathna Bandara as Governor of North Western Province will wield influence in the North Central Province where he was Chief Minister.

It remains unclear as to how the Elections Commission will handle the elections that are due this year and the next with partisan Governors in charge of provinces where they are politically active.

“After showing a total lack of commitment to democracy, fairness and good governance, and to the Constitution since 26 October 2018. We naturally wonder what tricks President Maithripala Sirisena is up to now in making these appointments and what other tricks are in his bag for the remaining four Governorships?” an informed political source questioned, raising concerns over the President’s objectives.

    All his actions and decisions and disturbances are being orchestrated by the Rajapakses. Massive billboards have just been installed in Pitakotte and near the Polduwa bridge of MS & MR seated together like old buddies. Their plan is to continue to destabilize the govt and the country and the people. While Ranil fiddles.

      TNA must institute legal action against Hisbullah for religious hatred for his crime of destroying a Hindu temple in Eravur and constructing a shopping complex over it and distributing the shops to Muslims which he had openly admitted. Appointing such a criminal as governor of eastern province is an insult to human decency. When Rev Gnanasara is being held in prison for hate crime, how this person who has committed the same, is being allowed to roam free, which is a blot in legal justice in the country.

        In this cursed Island nothing to worry about these appointments.
        This guy is not responsible for building of a beef stall on a Hindu Koyil ruins but swallowing lands of Tamils in the East.

        If Tamils still pretend sleep soon Tamils have to rent houses from Muslims the converted Tamil Hindus in the near future.

        No more governments jobs to Tamils in the East now all to Muslims

        TNP stop sleeping act now else East will become a Caliphate soon , when US drone bomb here Tamils also have to die.

        Why TNA gives special position to North only ?, now this voice is growing in the East.

        This governer appointment is to create a ethnic division in the east.

        He He He when the cat is away rats are dancing this is the situation in East today.

      Gota – offered Rs 65 million to Mano Ganesan with a ministerial post, through an intermediary, to cross over to Mahinda. Mano Ganesan of course rejected it, recording of the telephone conversation, in Tamil, is now leaked.

      Interesting exchange where Mano claims Basil also approached him …

            Will you like with an Arab family though you boost both follow Islam?
            Arabs never accommodate Asian Muslims is another story.
            The joke is Muslims in this country never accept their ancestors were Tamil Hindus.
            Muslims in Pakistan, Bangladesh even today accept their forefathers were Hindus.
            How can someone live with these people who never speak the truth?
            Faster East become a Caliphate then US drones from Diago Garcia base will fly over Muslim areas and give them a firework.
            Cheers

              You are correct Muslims of Sri Lanka do not like to admit the fact that most of their ancestors, if not all, are converts. They are conditioned to behave as such because of the doctrine they follow that does not tolerate any form of questioning and those who dare get the right royal flight to paradise. What is worse is their conspiracy to project themselves as a separate community, whilst the mother tongue of most of them is Tamil.

    Well, well.

    At least, in this case, Sirisena seems to have appointed the Hovetnetd legally and apparently constitutionally, unlike when he appointed the Fake PM, illegally and unconstitutionally, unanimously confirmed by the Supreme Court.

    One can always challenge the appointments on constitutional grounds in the courts.

    So, Sirisena still has no plans for resigning. The parliament is not going to impeach him, and he seem to have fun at everybody’s expense.

    If a LEADER loves his own folks, would he ever act the way SIRISENA does ? : No, now Sirisena is hurt having appointed RW as PM and see no way forward how to face his roudy allies led by ballige putha Rajaapaskhes. In SIRISENA hidden thoughts guide him further to fight for his extension becoming the common candidate to the combination of SLFP and SLPP. There are also bitter attacks coming from SLPP, that they would never allow SIRISENA to be their candidate, while Rajapkashe himself feels that he would prefer SIRISENA to be the candidate for 2019/20 election since his aims is to pass the CROWN to his notorious son Namal Baby in 2025. Until his son becomes the President, he just believes to occupy the position by anyone:
    :
    We know so called relgious adherence of lankenS and their LEADERS is just like a beautiful outer cover of novel with contents being filled with malice and anti humanity. An innociet dog (laparado) had been brutally murdered in NEGAMBO area few days ago, sent alarms across the nation; this to be an act of brutal aggressions of the average when their emotions would be akin to those of animals themselves. To the books they are that religious, but by practice they are even lower to animals. Looking back, cruelty has become part of their day today activities in my home country as no times in the past.
    .
    Like Satakaya has become Rajpakashe brand, AMUDAYA (loin cloth) around his neck would fit better SIRISENA in the next Pre election if he would be the COMMAN candidate.
    :
    This man SIRISENA has now been an invalid coin. Nevertheless stay to his office and make silly statments one behind the other not focusing on the progress of the govt just appointed two weeks ago.

      Dear Chamila,
      .
      Labrador is a Province (or is it State?) of Canada. Easily checked, but I’m not doing so; I’ll leave that to you. The dogs are large (so, not ‘lap-dogs’), but not as large as the Newfoundland, which originated in the same part of Canada. Large dogs – St Bernards are the prime example – are all gentle – and as you say innocent. So the murder of that dog was wanton cruelty.
      .
      I also received an “Appeal to the Prime Minister” to do something in this regard – and I saw , on the Internet, that there’s also been
      a demonstration in sympathy for Charlie. I signed the appeal, but I wonder if blowing this up is a diversionary tactic. We homo sapiens ought to be more concerned about the human beings who were slaughtered. Some people desire even more murders – provided they are not “us”. To be not “us” they must be different in language, religion, and something referred to as “ethnicity”.
      .
      ” progress of the govt just appointed two weeks ago.” ? What’s that? They are consolidating the places of old men whom we wanted retired. Paradox: I’m older than them. However, I realise that I must leave all this and “go on a long journey, from which no man ever returns” – no, “nor woman neither”. I know that there’s a double negative there, but that was found in this funny language five hundred years ago.
      .
      We’ve got to leave this a more hospitable place for you – and for wild animals, whom we forget when we increase the human population.

      Chamila Dodankotuwa ,

      “If a LEADER loves his own folks, would he ever act the way SIRISENA does ? “

      Sirisena loves him more than he loves his own folks or other folks. He is having a very good time, at the expense of his own folks and other folks Enjoy the show for this limited time. Hopefully, he will be last executive president and the first and last madman president

        Eagle Eye (Evil Eye fit better)@
        I really dont think it is unfair to call him the way some of our CT commenters repeated it all these weeks. Even that Edwin Rodrigo confirmed Rajapakshe to be the most abusive politician we ever have in that island.
        :
        But we are well aware that masses in the country specially in rural areas are brainwashed by Pro-Rajapakshe media about his MAGICAL powers.
        :
        To tell you it was not his magical power but collectivity succeeded elemination of LTTE terror in the country by 2009. Besides, do you think if Late Mr Kadirgamar failed to get LTTERs and their proactive groups banned on rich soils of the globe, would any leader be able to end the war within island bounderies ?
        :
        As a frog in a well, you or the ilk may feel that MR to be your hero, but for us alone going by his post war performance and RECENT 52-d conspiracy, he is no means a respepctable person in lanken politics
        .
        Just study the manner MR behaved in the parliament on very boxing day his loyalists almost killed 78 year old speaker and his safe guards. There we noticed the most malicious man MR was whispering his loyalists to go for next step…
        ON THIS VERY INCIDENT IF THIS MAN MR HAD A GOOD CHARACTOR, HE COULD HAVE STOPPED THE BRAWL BY COMMANDING THOSE MEN – ON THE SPOT… INSTEAD, WHAT HE DID WAS, NOTHING TO PREVENT IT HAPPENING :: BUT HAD BEEN A GOOD A JOYFUL SPECTATOR OF BRUTAL INCIDENT.
        :
        Latter alone proved me that RAJAPAKSHE is no means a GOOD person by nature.
        Besides, just because his TERM succeeded long standing war and its last phases (of the relay race) we should not allow him and his men to abuse the nation FURTHER.
        :
        Please wake up you ignorants, just respect anyone who really deserves the respect. No means Rajapakshe deserve that much of OVER respect.

          Chamila: It was at one time, LTTE and Tamils that did not allow Sinhala people to take care of it’s southren thieves. Now, it is you International communicty affiliated NGOs that doe snot allow Sinhala people to get rid of it’s southern thieves. At one point it is you people that should be handed over to Mrs. amirthaligam at Galla FACE. PENTHOUSE RAVI ad KIRIELLA and handed ovr TAx Payers money to their relatives as well as to UNF-
          civil society people who work for the international community. Shyamon Jayasighe does see only the building of houses as Tax payer money wasting.

    There are no rules/laws regarding appointment of governors – not even educational criteria – just like MPs.
    Sirisena cannot be blamed if he appoints his supporters.
    It is the people who elect their representatives, not political appointees to governorships and elsewhere.
    Have governors in the north and east prevented crime and racial/religious oppression – it is the armed forces who rule, not elected/appointed lackeys.
    Unwritten laws are well and good, but who observes them – even in other countries?

      Ranil’s Only objective is staying in power. He would sacrifice anything for that. Now, he wants to Build a new FRONT to face the elections and wina MAJORITY which he cannot do. that may be the Reason why who got Bags of from PTL is released and he was offered the Lottery board. So, for the first time, years afeter , Lottery board may say we were losing money. Because, the next govt also did the same. IT is the Central bank recently said that SCAM gbegan in 1997 which was the timeof Ranil.IT first startrd in JRJ’s time. JRJ would say MRs B did something like that. But, MRs B’s intention was not theft. Anyway, that is why her civic rights were taken off. So, nothing wrong all had some meaning.

    There is substantial concern raised in Tamil Media that the thing being undertaken against Tamils by SLFP/Slap Part is in retaliation of TNA’s interference in the Constitutional Coup staged by Sinhala Intellectuals on Oct 26, 2018. Karu Jayasuriya, who was in both SLFP & UNP and now only a nominated MP in UNP, immediately grabbed the opportunity and appointed a man, who has no MP position in Parliament, as the Opposition Leader, without removing the one existing. The EP played the same game though the Court reversed the action, later. Now Speaker has picked up precedent from that EP’s game. Then he challenged in the parliament, “if the minority parties wrongly think that can go to court and win a case, they can go to court on this too”. The minority parties won’t go to court. They know they won’t be able to win any case under Sinhala Jury Only verdicts.
    Appaya already knows he lost the minority votes. He wants to give a try what the Old King did in his attempt to his 3rd term. Old king, that time, did know the Sinhala Buddhists knows his stand against Tamils. So he wanted to stage Aluthgama to tell a message to Sinhalese that he was against Muslims too. But Tamils stood with Muslims that time. (The only Policeman acted against Aluthgama riots was the Tamil DIG Indran. He was fired by Old Brother Prince immediately after the riots). New King is taking Don Stephen’s path to destroy, Tamils and Muslims; that is to wedge between Tamils and Muslims he is using a anti-Tamil Muslims. Hezbollah appointment is another Don Stephen’s MMDA. Muslim will treat this as one their candidate is appointed. But Hezbollah will destroy both, Muslims and Tamils.

    If, in the land, there is one criminal as bold and brave as /or standing next to the twin brother Hitlers, the Old King and Brother Prince, it is Hezbollah. He has no fear of doing any crime. He has no hesitation of standing on any stage and lie about it. Like a swimmer’s game swimming between the pool’s wall, party switching, between the two poles, is Hezbollah’s game.

    In addition the Tamil Media’s suspicions, TNA MPs too have raised concerns on these appointments. Ariyanethiran has questioned EP’s move in appointing Hezbollah like extremists- criminals to this powerful position. Sumanthiran has said, to gain political mileage, the Southern extremists are doing a boisterous campaign against him using the TNA legal interference in the Coup. He has called on Dayasiri & Dilan to consider his Secret Solution favorable. But what Sumanthiran failed to understand is, in the meeting of “new Dissidents SLFPyers Group”, CBK has asked SLFPyers to consider only 20A and that is enough for them.
    What this is saying is, the recent TNA lawyers victory has not alerted, Old King, New King like anti-Tamil war criminals, but also lessor criminals like Ranil, Karu, Chandrika too.

    This leaves in question of if anyone in the Sinhala Community is capable respecting democracy, playing to rules and would allow Tamils o live peaceful within their community.

    You can fool the majority of innocent Sinhala village people by installing fear of separatism racism and religious bias in them but you cannot fool the majority of Sri Lankans. That is the problem I think these two have no answers at present. That’s why he nominated two mislims and a unper as Governors. He has completely forgotten to strengthen his own side which is a must.If not this drama will be over very soon.

    Sirisena violated the constitution, and attempted a illegal coup. therefore he became a traitor to the nation. The prunishment for traitors is death. If ordinary folk breaks the law he is purnished for it, same applies for Sirisena too, he is not above the law, and law applies equally to all.

    Maithiripala is proving that he will be instrumental for losing the past glory of Sri Lanka. The dark period in Sri Lanka has just begun. People should be aware that Maithiripala is a snake under the grass and a threat to democracy. I think he wanted to manipulate the election results with the assistance of these Governors. Moreover, he wants to create tension within the communities and he does not realize that foreign Powers are likely to dictate terms on Sri Lanka in the long run. He is not worried about the development of Sri Lanka.

    Shows the UNP is also in cahoots with these robbers to protect robbers! If not, an impeachment motion would be initiated by the UNP in parliament and lobbying the SLFP defectors, TNA and JVP for shitsena’s ouster. This action too the JVP had to propose to the intellectually bankrupt UNP to at. RanilW is one of the weakest leaders in our political history. It is poor and spineless leadership from Ranil that has allowed thugs and morons of this nature to survive in politics when they should be rotting in a prison cell for an unlawful political coup and for protecting murders of the military forces to run riot and bring utter censure from western governments, their diplomats and human rights organization. Sri Lanka is a lawless country and a failed state. No wonder why several comments above show the dislike for RanilW’s inaction as much as criticizing the evil forces of Sira-Mara combination. Look how old and antiquated everyone of these useless leaders are. They have both feet in their graves. If I was the leader of this country, the three-some would be discharged to a cemetery than to a retirement home or asylum.

    In 2016, when we voted for him, we thought, he was a good man. and had high hope on him, but he proved himself otherwise , it all apperant from his recent actions and behaviours, and he has shamelessly proved that he is of very lowly breed and unprincipled man. The greed for power croupted and over took him, and it’s sending him to the gutters. In the US, they proved, after long research and study, net worth and out put of an individual is the average of ten people he closely associates. That’s the reason people want to rub shoulders with good people so those people’s shine rub on to them. So Sirisena is rubbing shoulders with lowly lot and it shines on him too.

    Azath Sally!
    Azath was the Deputy Mayor of the CMC. During his time so many condominiums were constructed in Colombo. I wonder whether these conds were built according to prevailing rules and regulations . I recollect meeting him by appointment to discus certain shortcomings in the construction with the Developer. But the developer did not turn up. Azath spoke on their behalf, in their defense and promised to arrange another meeting which never took place. It appears that he did not want to embarrass developer after listening to our point of view. Thus, we came to the conclusion that no useful purpose will be served in trying to discuss with him.
    Once again the ‘flamboyant’ has been given a chance to proceed with his earnings in a higher position. It appears that he is given lots of opportunity to air his views by one of the TV station who believes in “We Report You decide”. Wish him luck.

    Ranil is one who allows any one anything as long as he is allowed to stay in the top and is allowed to progress into his ultimate objective which at present is the president post.In the mean time MAngala Gets MCC grants and destroy Sri lanka and build a country suitable to american business interests. Rajitha says he can help the country while he helps himself. Recently, GMOA accused Rajitha, instead of the ministry Secretary, Rajitha’s PErsonal Secretary is running the ministry. So, Vajira Kariayawasam, Kirileea, double dose viagra john amaratunga, Harison, and many more doing the same. See how Ranil has incresed the no of ministter posts (AT LEAST 60, MOST PROBABLY FAR MORE THAN THAT) without anyone reporting it. Because that is needed to win the election even though it is the TAX payer’s money. Shyamon Jayasinghe says champiak Ranawaka building Houses at the expense of TX pAYERS MOEY WAS BAD.

    Two Muslim thieves as Governors in a Buddhist country. What is wrong with Buddhist thieves?

    Not a single Tamil governor and two non Tamils deliberately selected as governors to the two Tamil provinces. One a Sinhalese from the armed forces accused of war crimes against the Tamils to the north and the other a well known anti Tamil/Hindu Islamic extremist , who is responsible for the destruction of a Hindu temple/temples in the east and converting these sites to a beef stall and shopping center and giving all the stalls to local Muslims only . So far no action has been taken against him but he has been rewarded for his anti Tamil and anti Hindu activities against the indigenous Tamils of the east , who are the true owners of the east , by the Sinhalese state, so that under his governorship more damage, destruction and atrocities can be done against the Tamils and destroy all their ancient symbols in the north and east. The two Tamil majority provinces, are the ancient homeland of the indigenous Eelam Tamils and not the Sinhalese or these immigrant largely low caste converted Dravidian Muslims from Tamil Nadu South Indian now masquerading and behaving like Wahhabi Gulf Arabs and claiming a fake Arab ancestry to justify their disgraceful, selfish and opportunistic behaviour. Both these communities are new comers to the north and east. The Sinhalese deliberately planted there by all governments since independence, on ethically cleansed Tamil lands to change the demography and reduce the Tamils into a voiceless minority in their own land. These fake Arab South Indian origin Muslims only arrived in the east , as refugees a few centuries ago , fleeing persecution and these incidents are recorded in black and white. Neither of these two communities have no valid right to claim any sort of homeland in the north and east. Recognizing their absurd claims , that are instigated by all Sinhalese led governments and Wahhabi Islamic extremists , is giving recognition to state sponsored ethnic cleansing.

    Contd: This president seem to have forgotten that he was largely elected on the votes of the Tamils and not on the votes of Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and Islamic Wahhabis. Before his election he travelled to the west and begged for the support and funds from the Tamil diaspora on the promise that state sponsored Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist racism against the island’s Tamils will cease and all we be treated equally. Even large amounts of fair minded Sinhalese disgusted with this sort of divide and rule and open racist behaviour by the Sri Lankan state elected him . Now like all former Sinhalese leaders , he has shown his true Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist anti Tamil racist colours He has used the Tamils and rode piggy back on them to win the election and is now busy destroying them. In the Sinhalese south the Sinhalese persecute Muslims but in the north and east the Sinhalese sate the illegal Sinhalese setters and establishment join with the Muslim extremists to destroy the Tamils. Tamils are the largest community in the east and are the true owners but they are deliberately being marginalised by there by the Sinhalese state and their Wahhabi Islamic allies , with the idea of stealing their land for Sinhalese Buddhist Fascism or for Wahhabi/Salafist Islamic fanaticism.

    The mentioned two men are “worst opportunists and hypocrites”! They go about barking saying “in the interest” of the community but actually it is NOT SO. Both are frauds and rogues! Yes, they can wield influence at the elections but I do not believe the Muslims are that foolish! They know very well who these turncoats are !

    There should be a clear clause in the constitution that a governor has no politics connection A governor post should b offered to a retired secretaries or people of academic standing with minimum of 30 years service. Sirisena and Mahinda are trying to win Muslim votes , The Muslim should look sharp The PreZ is inclined to create anther crisis

    I welcome the appointment of both Ashathally and Hisbulla. Some commentators shows hatred based on their religion. How can you prejudge their work even before they start their works. It is evident that the comments are based on jealousy and communal mindset. We have to be proud that some Tamil speaking people are appointed governors. Even some muslim governor who were appointed in western province did not do anything based on community.

    If Tamil does not want Hisbulla, how Muslims wants a Tamil to rule in North East

      It is not hatred based on their religious beliefs but their past actions, no point in playing the victim card to defend these culprits.

      Why are you another fake Arab Wahhabi extremist? Who denies their actual immigrant South Indian Tamil Hindu origin like 99% of the Sri Lankan Muslims and in the name of Islam , claim an imagined Arab/Moor origin and try now to look and behave pathetically like Gulf Arabs and destroy everything Tamil in order to justify this lie and myth and to please their Sinhalese masters. Funny all other South Asian Islamic ethnic groups admit to their Hindu ancestry and despite being strong Muslims are also very proud of their own ethnicity and heritage , except these pathetic Sri Lankan Tamil Muslims, who have now become a curse on the island’s Tamils. The Muslim masses do not use their brains or intelligence to analyse but blindly believe what their selfish extremist power hungry Mullahs , politcians and elite say that they are not Tamils but descended from Arabs/Moors and just happened to speak Tamil and follow Tamil customs until a generation ago. Why cant they see themselves in the mirror and realise what a blatant lie this is, other than a very small percentage with a distance male Arab ancestor , the rest of them are all descended from converted Tamil Hindus. These nasty politcians Mullahs and elite are conniving with the Sinhalese and deliberately stating all these lies , creating all these rifts between the non Muslim and Muslim Tamils , for their own selfish power over the Muslims and create wealth for themselves , using religion and a fake origin , at the expense of all Tamils. The only people who will finally gain from this rift are the Sinhalese and these selfish power hungry Muslim politicians and elite.

      Contd: Yes Tamils do not want Hisbulla ( like the extremist Hisbullah of Palestine/Lebanon) as he is a Wahhabi Islamic extremist , who has openly admitted to deliberately creating rifts between the Muslims and the Tamils of the east and to destroying Hindu temples to create beef stalls/shopping centres and distributing them to Muslims. If Muslims in Sri Lanka are proud of being Tamil and admit to their Tamil Hindu ancestry , origin and heritage and do everything , to protect the Tamil language culture and heritage instead of in the name of Wahhabism/Islam and a fake Arab origin joining the Sinhalese to destroy their own Tamil heritage , people and heritage, we do not want them. Remember the eastern Muslims are there because of the generosity of the ancestors of the eastern Hindu Tamils, who gave the ancestors of the eastern Muslims refuge a few centuries ago when they fled persecution and even Hindu Tamil Mukkuva women as brides to start a family. Destroying Budda statues down south by Islamic fanatics is a calamity and needs to be punished , however destroying /vandalising Hindu and at times Christian places of worship by Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and Wahhabi Islamic fanatics and converting them to Buddhist and Islamic places of worship is given overt and covert support by the authorities and the establishment , nothing is done the news is supressed and now the perpetrators , many who are openly doing this and are admitting to this , as they know nothing will be done are being rewarded by governor posts and other perks , instead of being arrested. When this is done in the south Muslim columnists and commentators for queueing up here and in other forums to condemn these acts and to state this is not them but do the opposite when this happens in the Tamil areas by Islamic fanatics , local politicians and elite. They defend this and start attacking the Tamils. Shows their mindset and how much they have been brainwashed to hate their Tamil Hindu origin and heritage.

    Azath Sally – Governor? Where Sri Lanka? This pathetic imbecile who is a frequent guest on the morning talk show of News 1st (since there aren’t many educated normal citizens who would come on the show except for Killi’s menials) along with that over weight “I think I am Larry King” fatso – couldn’t even garner enough votes in a Municipal Election to save his deposit. The f’er – probably illiterate can’t hold a sentence together in a conversation in English attired in a western suite complete godaya not knowing that one does not button the bottom button of a suite jacket.

    This 3rd grade pariah is a ass who licks MS’s ass clean every morning. So he got a reward that will let this TC rob the country and province for generations which have bred like rabbits.
