Desperate Sirisena Seeks To Abolish 19A Before Prez Polls

Sirisena who met with the media heads this morning has spoken in no unclear terms of his intention to abolish the 19th amendment to the Constitution before the upcoming Presidential election.

President Sirisena

Addressing the media heads gathered this morning Sirisena said he admits the country is in deep political instability and the reason behind the situation is the 19th amendment.

He also said irrelevant of who is elected as the next President of Sri Lanka, any individual who loves the country must join forces to abolish the 19th amendment.

“It is a curse to the country and drafted on NGO requests!” he said.

Sirisena forgets that he came into power with the election pledge of bringing a ‘19th amendment’. What he is now seeking to crush is the people’s mandate.

The 19th amendment passed in April 2015 and was hailed by many parties as a progressive move that tamed arbitrary powers of Executive Presidency while cancelling the adverse blows against democracy via the 18th amendment passed by Rajapaksas during their tenure to consolidate their power.

He also pledged to implement the death penalty for four convicts.

“I have already signed the death penalty for four drug dealers. They will be carried out in the near future,” he added.

He also lashed out at the state owned Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation and Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation for spreading fake news about him. Sirisena claims it has falsely misquoted the numbers in his delegations during foreign tours.

    Spot on. I count, this is the best ever statement he has made since his election as the executive president. But can he and his team – UNP, TNA, MC, JVP, Bathiudeen etc., – be skipped easily from all the bad that had done to the country and the atonement of sins?

      How are you?
      Haven’t heard from you for a long time.
      Now that the saffron clad thug is out in the open you must be busy carrying his b***s.
      It’s all right someone has to do it.

      “But can he and his team – UNP, TNA, MC, JVP, Bathiudeen etc., – be skipped easily from all the bad that had done to the country and the atonement of sins?”

      You mean in the past 70 years.
      You forgot to include, Mahasangha, SLFP and its natural satellites CP, LSSP, ……NFF, SLPP, ……………… Sinhala/Buddhist Fascists like you, ….

      Don’t take it too personal.

        He’s talking about chaotic 19th amendment – a product of your darlings Suman, Jayampathi etc. If you want to talk about the past 70 years, then the biggest portion should reserve to the likes of Chelva, Sundaralinkm – the farthers of LTTE and, yes, the theoreticians like you, cannot be exempted too, my friend.

          Come on this is the first time I am hearing this word.
          I am an ordinary man with ordinary needs, very simple thoughts, and very very simple living.

          By the way the above paragraph is not clear.
          Could you clarify it.

          President signs death warrants for four convicts
          26 June 2019
          President Maithripala Sirisena said he had already signed papers for execution of four convicts, who were sentenced to death over drug offences.

          “I have already signed the papers and they will be carried out soon,” the President told media heads at a meeting this morning.”
          http://www.dailymirror.lk

          These state murders have to be stopped.

        Sirisena,

        The country is 22 million people ………. not one imbecile named Sirisena.

        Enough is enough. Go in the name of Buddha go. ………… And be done with it!


        “It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,
        which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

        Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.

        Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

        Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?
        Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

        Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

        Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

        Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

        I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

        Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

        In the name of God, go!” — Oliver Cromwell – 20 April 1653

      Sirisena,

      6.2 million people voted to abolish the executive presidency.
      You are truly a Traitor, Sevalaya(sleaze ), Pachaya(liar), Mala-Perethaya(living off the dead) etc.

      You are the madman, the late Dr. N M Perera warned against during the debate on the executive presidency in 1978.

      You are truly a Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist “ who prostrates to the Para-Monks, statutes and trees, which the enlightened Buddha did not want.

      Why not abolish the executive presidency.

      Why don’t you hang yourself, Traitor and Sevelaya.

      Max,
      Do u know what NGO really is? Don’t u know that u r also can be defined as an NGO? Each family, each community etc are also NGO b’cos each unit have their own political interests expressed in each bill passed by the Gvt. Ulike 18 A which came from God knows where, 19 A was written in public & was passed with 224 out of 225 votes in the parliament. That included MY 3 ‘s fullest support. As a matter of fact, it was him more than anybody else who wanted 19 A so badly b’cos, according to his own words, MaRa used to abuse almost daily wit!

      This BP at the beginning went on saying, that SIRISENA himself got all parties agreed to sign for the 19Amendment and that was the best thing he could at the start of his Presidency.
      Now , if the bugger is not cross implanted his both orifices, to make public statements show his shameless nature.
      As some experts point it today, the kind of men have no shame at all. They dont know even what they have been talking about.
      I think it is worth mentioning about the case filed by one lanken asking to get this MAN s head examined, i twas just after that 52 day crisis, architected by him for a power struggle.

      Just imagine, if we had not had the 19 A today…

      Donkey and his nosal rope being controlled by former mafia boss, now being hallozinated not knowing what he has been uttering. The kind of men would not be appropriate to clean a toilet I woudl so.
      This partiuclar sirisena should be burnt down with Rajakshes all together if we the folks should be able to create a better future in this land.
      Max is a person who would swallow the heaps of excrements of Rajapakshe on one go.
      He does not seem to have the knowledge to see it right or wrong. Pleaes god, help the buggers or th elike to be born wise LET alone in next soul.

      Steve,

      This is an illegally occupied Para-Sinhala Para- “Buddhists” Country, where the monks and politicians equally run amok.

      Sinhala “Buddhism” is a Religion of no Peace and more hatred. Ask any Tamil and those monks.

        Amarasiri,
        You have to keep on repeating the Mantra ‘Para-Sinhala’ ‘Para-Sinhala’ ‘Para-Sinhala’ because you are hired for that purpose. ‘Para’ in Sinhala means ‘Foreign’. Sinhalayo are not ‘Para’ because they did not come to Sinhale from any other country like ‘Para Sudda’, ‘Para Demalu’ and ‘Para Malays’.

        Prof. Raj Somadeva’s path breaking archeological research have shown with solid evidences that Sinhalayo evolved in Sinhale from Homo Sapiens lived in this country 125,000 BP confirmed by OSL method. This evidence was found in Pathirajawela in Hambantota District. He also has found evidences to prove that Sinhala language evolved in this country.

        Prof. Raj Somadeva says there is a stone inscription in Tamil Nadu where ‘Seehala Deepa’ is mentioned in Tamil. According to Bengali history, Vijaya Singh has landed in an island called ‘Seehol Deep’. This indicates that this country was inhabited by Sinhalayo before Vijaya arrived.

        Please watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqNtK_xFtIE if you can understand Sinhala.


        If your pay cheque depends on repeating the Mantra ‘Para-Sinhala’, ‘Para-Sinhala’, ‘Para-Sinhala’ please go on doing that.

          Eagle Eye,

          First of all, Amarasiri is not paid by anybody. It is simply Amarasiri’s desire to get to the bottom of the truth and the lies.

          The claim by the Para-Sinhala that they are the Natives, have lived in the Land of native Veddah Aethho for 125,000 years, is only believed by the brainwashed Para-Sinhalayo with low IQ only.

          Modern genetics show that the Homo sapiens left East Africa around 70,000 years ago, and the ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho, arrived I’m the Land by walking to claim the land.

          Mitochondrial DNA genetics of Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamils and Native Veddah Aethho CONCLUSIVELY showed that only the Veddah Aethho are natives and the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils are indeed Paras. It was published in Nature Genetics during 2013.

          So, you have been brainwashed by those who wants to believe that the Para-Sinhala are Natives. They are NOT. They are Paras.

          You remind me of the Catholic Church who claimed based on the Greek and the Bible that the Earth was stationary and the Sun went around the Earth. Their argument was that the Sun rises from the East and sets in the West.

          There is nothing wrong being a Para. The problem begins when the Paras call others Paras, when they themselves are Paras. Only idiotic grass eating Paras, prostrating to saffron clad Para-monks who claim to be the 3rd Gem of the so-called Triple Gem will do that.

          Would you prefer that Amarasiri call the Para-Sinhala, imbeciles instead of Para-Sinhala? However, that won’t be accurate because, not all Para-Sinhala are imbeciles. So, based on data, Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamil etc. stands.

            Amarasiri,
            You gave a reference to an article that according to you gives conclusive evidence that DNA shows Sinhalayo came from Hindusthan. I say you did not read the article completely:
            The conclusion of the research by Ranaweera, Lanka; Kaewsutthi, Supannee; Win Tun, Aung; Boonyarit, Hathaichanoke; Poolsuwan, Samerchai; Lertrit, Patcharee (2014). “Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: Their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations”. Journal of Human Genetics. 59(1): 28–36 is.
            “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”

            In a previous comment you mentioned Vedda Eththo came to this country 8,000 years ago.

            I read few other DNA studies but none of them give CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE to suggest that Sinhalayo came from Hindusthan.

    He must be counting his dates now. Did he dream to be Sri Lankan President at all in his life, It was UNP voters who gave him this post and yet, he was dishonest to cheat UNP. He was dishonest for 6:2 voters. Now, his name will go into dust bin with his behaviour. Let us now see a good leader to come into power. free Sri Lankan all this bad apples in politics.

    CT, the heading on this item is misleading.
    \
    The issue of s19 is not a matter of Sirisena’s desperation. In order to assess it, all patriotic Sri Lankans need to consider Ranil’s motivation behind pushing for this amendments and the cunning methods.he used to achieve it.

    Ranil was a desperate politician in 2015, havinf lost 29 elections, and having been sacked as PM by tow o former presidents. So he put forward Sirisena to get power, and worked behind his back to steal power from the president, mainly to limit president’s power to sack the pm. He got the 2/3 support by throwing the bone of 4 1/2 year minimum term to the crooks in both sides of parliament. THe supreme court made a mistake in January by not correctly interpreting Ranil’s real ‘intent’ behind this crooked law.
    /
    Most eople agree that a strong, noncorrupt leader is urgently required if we are ever to reform Sri Lanka, .and what has happened under s19 is that the 225 crooks in parliament have stolen the power from a future president, limiing his ability to clean up the system.
    /
    So it is a huge issue, and it must not be forgotten that Sirisena was the instrument Ranil used and he was a great backer of the idea. So people can ignore Sirisena and still deal with the issue.

Once he said “Buckingham Maaligaawa in America”. The IQ equal to 225 parliamentarians, not better as the president. Now wanting to have a coup to extend the luxurious privileges and trying to emulate Modi and Mahathir Mohammad. The man also went on to do Yoga and showed that He is a Niro, the Greek musician who played a harp when everything was on fire around him. May be this mental humbug will apply for Noble Prize thinking that he is doing a yeoman service to the nation. By right, this humbug should be in jail for murder, for failing to protect the large no. of people who died, due to not performing the duties with due diligent, as the chief of security in the country. I await the election, to kick this sorry ass out. Hope others would do too.

    Problem is with him n his mental illness not 19th A.

    Here is the proof for it.

    He is the leader of upfa & SLFP right ? He has all executive powers to do anything in those two parties right as party leader ?

    So what have he done to those two succeessful parties ? Almost totally destroyed both parties with his executive leadership powers right.

    So it clearly shows problem is with him n mental illness. Not anything to do with constitution.

    Sirisena is uneducated, therefore, totally out of his depth as President, has no vision for the country but self serving & desperately tries to hang on to anything for survival & will do a deal even with the devil to extend his term. In fact, he does not know if he is coming or going & should have been forced to resign long ago for incompetence (if he was employed by the mercantile sector, he would have been fired soon after being appointed).

    Once his term is over, he & his immediate family should be investigated for corruption, abuse of power & nepotism, all of which this country has endured for the worse during his tenure.

But none of them can by any stretch of imagination be described as “A treacherous, ungrateful, lying, stupid, mad, selfish, vain, irresponsible and incompetent person” all at the same time. That distinction goes only to Maithripala Sirisena.

        He deserves mention in Ripley’s ‘Believe it or Not’ as one of the most flawed characters who ever existed.

        Ranil is a big successor. thanks to CBK and Mangala, Ranil had a govt only with 42 seats. He overcame the BOND SCAM, No confidence motion and now the Wahhabi attacks. By September Ranil will turn Sri lanka upside down. But bhikkus say say their insurance scheme is also a FRAUD. Moody rating agency down graded Sri lankan credit rating because they can earn more interests. They are running fraudulent Insurance business in Sri lanka which insures every person a few times and entirely run by their companies. Some how Sri lankan Insurance industry enjoys AAA rating by Moody.. Both Mahinda Rajapakse and Yahapalanaya ran the same western agenda.

    Sirisena’s history of corruption alone precludes him from a future presidency.
    But his greed for power transcends everything else.

    IQ of a Sri Lankan is said to be above average and yet we end u. Ifp choosing the wrong party or person to steer Sri Lanka into the right path. Since February 1948 this country has been led by Sinhalese Leaders and they have all failed and some failed miserably to the point of totally unfit. If CBK was a bad President Sirisena is a Sorrysena and one cannot and will not find anyone as worse and will certainly go down in our annals as the worst. We can call our President as Travelsena as he constantly travels to destinations where his presence is unneccessary. God has presented us a beautiful country and look at the leaders we have. What we need is a leader who see the people as Sri Lankans and not divided by race or religion. Unity is strength and if we dont unite the future will be bleak.
    Buddhism is over 2500 years old and delivered by Gautama Buddah to mankind. Religion appeared much later and though we now belong to different faiths the Principals of Buddhism and religions are similar wherefore we are all disciples of the Buddhist philosophy and follow it unknowingly in our everyday life. Buddhism is not only for the Sinhalese, it is also the philosophy for all mankind.

    New King doesn’t mean what he says. He wanted 19A to keep Old Bother Princes away by the dual citizenship situation. He already says 18A was creating a dictator, because it allowed Old King to contest again. Further New King is bringing back death penalty. If 19A removed and anyone of the Three members of the Old Royal family is allowed to stand in the election and win, very first one who would kiss the hanging rope is New King. They hired Pillaiyan to the Alucosu. But Pillaiyan missed.

    How can a leader can survive who DID NOT act upon several intelligence reports about the Easter Day bombing is beyond me.

    By his inaction, he is and will be responsible for over 250 deaths and many more injured. By his inaction, he has put Muslim community (who voted for him) in peril!

    Then, he let the cat out among the pigeons by releasing the racist Monk Gnanasara knowing very well he will create mayhem among Sri Lankans.

    Now, this drowning man is looking for a straw to clutch.

    That means Maithripala Sirisena you became President by making terrible miscalculations! Each and every proposal you made at the Presidential Elections and which made you win, you now accepted as terrible mistakes. First and foremost you said you will charge the former President for committing murder and theft andow he is now the Prime minister and not languishing in jail. You said you will abolish Presidential system but now you are planning to recontest for the same post you promised to abolish. Now only you thing you did positively was the 19 A and now you want to abolish that too.
    Then best you can do is to resign forthwith and give up politics altogether.

    Right now, what is important is Ranil thinking what to say when he comes to the PSC the one similar to a USA – SENATE committee. Ranil will explain to the PSC people what is global Terrorism and how fast he controlled it within a week or too Because, as the president was away he decided to instruction all the forces and defence people to take it under control. So, he will explain his procedure and methods and how he did it.

    Now people are fed up of this system . All CBK, Mahinda Rajapske and Ranil ran the same system. Now, it is clear given the opportunity Maithripala Sirsiena would be doing the same, People would change it. So, Maithripala has to make it or lose it. It is just like Mahinda rajapakse had to go to war. fortunately, Pabakaran closed the Mavil Aru. In the Yahapalana govt or the National govt, Ranil and his bond scam gang, NCM gang and now the Wahhabi gang have overwhelmingly proved they are not for the country. Thye are supporting themselves and the western agenda. Ranil is not the DS, Dudly kind of UNP. It has to vanish or it needs restructuring.
