Executive Presidency Will Remain: MR

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says that President Maithripala Sirisena’s announcement that he will abolish the Executive Presidency, is a farce.

Mahinda Rajapaksa

Speaking to the media after meeting the Malawatu-Asigiri Mahanayake Thero’s in Kandy today Rajapaksa said that he does not believe Sirisena will abolish the Executive Presidential system.

The ex-President said that while some amendments will be made to the Executive Presidency it will not be abolished totally. Rajapaksa said that he believed the President will retain most powers.

Meanwhile Rajapksa stated that he was still undecided about whether he will support the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) at the next Local Government (LG) elections.

“How can I support the SLFP when some front line leaders are saying that Rajapaksa should retire and my services are no longer needed” he added.

When Journalists queried whether he would lead the joint opposition and will contest as a separate party, Rajapaksa replied “I have not decided on such a role as yet”

Sirisena last week announced that he will abolish the executive presidential system. A subsequent proposal by him to do away with the system was approved by the cabinet of ministers.

      MR, you have been lying a lot, but this is probably not a lie’

      After all you kbow All these liars very well.

      “How can I support the SLFP when some front line leaders are saying that Rajapaksa should retire and my services are no longer needed” he added.”

      That is the truth. They, SLFP, do not need any more liars. They have plenty. Yes, you should retire and fish.

      It will never be abolished is my guess – as MS will go for a 2nd Term, whereby the
      Executive Presidency will be abolished only thereafter, as this condition has been
      laid out with a hidden agenda. Just a mere call from a Mahanayake will prompt MS
      to proceed to the 2nd Term, having tasted Power.

      You have been well known to lie many, many times. However, it looks like this is one occasion you may not be lying.

      You know the current politicians in power well. However, the current politicians have another opportunity to show that you are a liar, again. Will they take that opportunity or just prove that they are liars?

      Whatever happens we will have liars.

      Has MR had any rights to even discuss the issue ?

      Had My3 + Ranil risked their lives, even today, Srilanken Gadafi, would have been running his all abusive regime even today.
      Did Journos have any rights to that time ? Journos have lost their memeories by this date – MR was the worst leader srilanka ever produced. He never allowed any other cabinet men and women to express themselves either. TOday, very same idiotic men and women still support to him for no reasons – the dillemal question before the other 50% of the vote eligibles of this nation.

        Yes, born Pinguthtaraya destroyed the country as no other previous leaders. Looted and rooted for fatting their pockets. Anyways, days ahead of us will show how they grabed those bilions.

        Then the entire nation will have to be suprised why the fox smile remained further. MR s real face is far from everyone s knowledge. This was the nature of Gadafi or other megalomanic politicians showed.

        Alone him to have been chased away – avoiding all harm to the nation

        a) May you Great son of the NATION Reve Sobith Thero attain Nirawana

        b) My3 and Ranil et al should be gotten all strenghs and energies to lead this nation for all good

        c) CBK should be grateful for the single reason MY3 to be selected as the common candidate to drive away the bunch of thugs – those were the days, that the country was seen as a TERROR state rather than a democratic one.

      Sri Lankan rulers are notorius for not keeping their promises:

      For example, SWRD tore up the pact he made with Tamils.

      Other leaders did similar actions to negate their promises.

      Rajapakse is the greatest Satan of many broken promises.

      Maithiri and Ranil are no better: They didn’t keep their promises to release the Tamil political prisoners. They haven’t kept several promises to the electors who voted them in.

      Sri Lankan Sinhala political leaders have lost credibility in the eyes of the international community.

      “Like you mean how you lied about abolishing it “

      Let’s see what the Devil Satan Said to Adam.

      https://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=Adam&qs_version=NIV

      Genesis 2:25 Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.( Like You MR)

      Genesis 3:17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.

      They are talking about forbidden fruit and corruption.

      Genesis 4:1 [ Cain and Abel ] Adam made love to his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man.”

      Genesis 4:25Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, “God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.”

      Genesis 5:1 [ From Adam to Noah ] This is the written account of Adam’s family line. When God created mankind, he made them in the likeness of God.

      So we have the story of Namal, Yoshita and the other, and the Family Dutugamunu from Medamulana South-Ruhuna.

    ‘Birds of a Feather’?.
    “I have not decided on such a role as yet”. Yes, you have to clear your name first, pay back the money stolen from the poor tax payers, spend a few years behind bars for what you did to SF. By the time you get out you will need a walking stick.

    When the people had given a mandate to My3 on 8th January 2015 to abolish the executive presidential system he may not have needed cabinet approval but now that formality has been completed he should go ahead and do what is necessary to do what he promised post haste without any more prodding.

    When JR who introduced the Presidential system under a false referumdum in the name of democracy and freedom he said the system will never be abolished, and he was telling a truth.He knew no one who had enjoyed untrammelled power will dare to do away with it due to the consequences of what would happen after the incumbency as it would rebound not only on him but on every successor who had after him/her enjoyed that.previlege.

    The reason for MaRa saying that it will not be abolished and that My3 would retain most powers is exactly that.

    MaRa knows very well why My3 cannot afford to abolish because he was there with him during his Presidency and condoned and assisted in all the sordid commission and omissions and is equally culpable and he cannot absolve himself of any wrong doing.

    It is for that reason MaRa will never be held accountable and why he may have not decided to take flight to foreign clime as yet.
    Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown applies to My3/Ranil duo as well.

    Your Excellency, consider retiring from politics. You did a tremendous service to our nation when you went ahead and dismantled the LTTE. People, even your most bitter enemy will acknowledge that. You have assets, you will be given a very good benefit package and you can live in comfort. Think about it.

      Let me correct you here…

      “You did a tremendous service to our nation and the world changing the way towards the styles practises by Gadafi or other dictators of the third world countries…..thanks to you… society has now come to the levels almost every 3rd is a drug addict or dealer… murder acts have become day today agendas… high crimes have become something like daily necessisities. Even if your and collective forces of the nation eleminated LTTE terror from the country, that was painted by your and your family as your magical powers… all in all, considering your governance, today, even you have rights to add your thoughts free – since current rulers have allowed it to you…. so the best thing would be you to get ready to stay behind the bars for all high crimes you have commited “..

      if you love to this country, try to help the current regime to find out where you have kept your alleged funds – that are the tax payers assests.

        Its easy to criticize my comments but be realistic. If this My3/RW bus also runs with the Senarthnas, Megacity projects, resurgence of any forms of extremism, Mahendrans, avant garde and similar fiascos, the VOTER may want to see a sudden change, which may not be very nice for even Colombotelegraph !!!

The men and women are the stumblng block – all others make high sacrifices to see a country without the kind of crime and corruption friendly leaders. If you cant see it the way how it goes forward today – you should be a born stupid person – what brought those jumbo projects

          b) Mattala Meeharaka Rjaapkashe Airport has turned to a store room
          c) Hamantota port – is a place not for ships but for the name
          d) and and..

          MR looted and rootes, the sums and their reports to be revealed in the months to come. He will not be able to pay his fox smile forever. That is forsure. Taxpayers funds grabs are connected withthe curse of those poor people s grievances.

          CT s commitments were the among the few that risked their lives in the great work started by GOLDEN son of the nation late Madulawawe Sobitha thero:
          CT has provided us all peace loving right respecting ones to discuss the issues as open as we could.
          CT has risked all these to regain the lost basic human rights.

          Hey you are truly wrong…
          Mahendran has done nothing.. actually, it was the mega ill infomration added to the nation by megalo et al – make s.. never would the real educated men work to harm the nation.

          If that was done it was by Rajapakshe.

          If Saudis are ready to stone poor female servant for petty issues, why not god punish Rajapaskhes for ther high crimes ?

          MY3 AND Ranil are so good to this world – they have not put the man yet in Jail – because they respect the power of stupid folks akin you. In the countries like ours – every 2nd being corrupted or corrupted supportive- this was the latest evidience given by last two election.
          For them no matter even their mothers would have been abducted by anyone, they just want to support their criminals mostly no reasons.
          Buruwanse – is mega paranoid – that may have no chance to become a politician if a real leader led this nation. But Buruwanse is nowe become so called minister who can still claim more few hundred thousands of votes inthe literate state of the country (western province) Either people are gone mad or they are born mad.

    It is very unfair for Moustache to say so, when, unlike him, My3 has never broken any of his promises. Read on.

    1- Cabinet size: 30 as promised. It looks bigger because the Ministers are oversized (Moustache,s fault. Too much luxury). Actually, in brain size they are 50% of a normal person. 50% of 100 is 30. right?

    2- Keeping out the corrupt and the criminals: This is again a misconception. All the extra money they received are in bank accounts. (Salli Kandada?) Then this money is invested in many ways through businessmen. Profits are generated. Taxes are paid. Salaries are received. The money flows back to the people through free education, health, subsidies, Samurdi etc. It is silly to call it black. It is of normal colour.

    3- Yahapalanaya: People are in too much of a hurry. Just as charity, Yahapalanaya starts at home and no one can deny that it has certainly made a great start there. It takes some time to filter down to other areas.

    4- End of nepotism: Again the people are wrong. The foreigh travels, inspection tours etc prove the point. There is perfect freedom of movement for family members. Aren’t they Jantawa too?

    5- Badu Mila: People are asses and though even asses are happy when you give them some hay, people are never happy however low the price of hay is. They breed like rabbits and expect the government to take care of their off spring. The badu mila is down in terms of US $. It looks high because the Rs is down.

    So people, everything is going according to My3’s 5 year plan. Why should he not step down in 5 years? The man will have nothing to do if he doesn’t. It will be so bo…..ring.

    Mahinda, please do not retire from politics.

    Wait until I join you after abandoning my British passport and gaining my Sri Lankan citizenship.

    My knowledge and executing manifolds of tasks are beyond limits. I want to crown you again so that you can retire with a huge roar of the lion.

You first supported MR during the election adoring him. Then when he lost you turned against him calling him by all sorts of bad names. Then now again you make a U turn to adore him. Is this due to changes in the position of the moon?

      You should take leave from Colombo Telegraph and seek medical advise.

        I had second thought and felt sorry for Mahinda.

        Look at the photograph of Mahinda in the article. Look, how smart and humble he is. There is something in him you are failing to realise. I have been pulled in again and I want to do something to bring the change.

        Mahinda must come back and I like to serve under him as a MP, adviser or a guide. He is man of vision.

        My heart and mind is with him.

        Thank you for telling your opinion about me. I will be careful in the future.

    MR has been quoted by DBSJ (Canada) as having said: “ Mahinda has owned up to his mistakes. He has said ‘bale thiyanakota mole ne, mole thiyanakota bale ne’— when one has power one has no brains and vice versa”. – Enlightened as he is at 70, he will do good
    to himself if he takes up residence in some Temple?

    Hon. Mangala is reported to have said that the Rajapakses are involved in 725 Cases of
    which 25 are directly related to the Family! If this is a true Statement, it is a
    record for a SL Politician. Retirement and facing the eventualities than taking up a
    Leadership to attract more insinuations will ruin even his present status is one

    The deal was Elite , Anglicans and the Vellalas elect Bodhi Sira.

    And Bodhi goes on the Presidential pension after handing over it to Batalnda Ranil lock stock and barrel.

    Did Bodhi Sira have a change of mind after Baby Sira’s trip to the Big Apple at the invitation of Batalanad’s Buddy Mangalan?.

    Will the Elite, Anglicans and the Vellalas vote for Bodhi Sira a second time ?.

    “Fonseka led troops to victory over the separatist Tamil Tiger rebels in 2009, but then fell out with Rajapaksa.

    The decorated general was publicly humiliated and stripped of his rank, pension and medals collected in a 40-year career. He spent two years in jail and lost the right to contest elections for seven years.

    Soon after his 2010 poll defeat, Fonseka was detained on a charge of corruption relating to military procurements and then given a 30-month jail sentence.

    In November 2011 he was sentenced to three more years in jail for saying that Tiger rebels who surrendered had been killed on the orders of Rajapaksa’s brother Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, the then-defence secretary.

    Fonseka had also angered the government by saying he would testify before any international tribunal probing possible war crimes charges.

    Sri Lanka’s former government had denied any civilians were killed by its troops at the climax of the 37-year war in 2009, which is believed to have left up to 100,000 people dead.”

    Even the current govt and initial investigation by the UN believes what SF said was true but your Kangaroo legal system not only charged him will cooked-up charges but found him guilty.

    Considering all of the above do you honestly believe that you have the right to represent the people even in the capacity of a Grama Seveka?

    Then again this is Sri Lanka.

    Let us all be not fooled. What is meant by abolition of Executive Powers? You won’t believe that even Mr. Gopallawa, the President under 1972 constitution was the Head of Executive. How was he made subservient to the PM?

    Firstly, he was required to implement all advice tendered by the PM or authorized Minister except when it comes to the appointment of the PM. However, by any chance he did not listen to the PM courts cannot question his decision.

    Secondly, PM can remove him by proposing a vote of no confidence in Parliament and pass by simple majority.

    It need not come from Jarapassa mouth. There is a thing called residual power which lies with the President, however non-executive he/she may be. That is alone enough to create havoc if the man/woman is a crook. Further, if the President is a politician from a political party and his party controls the majority of Parliament, it becomes like “good old times”.

    The ideal is a President, directly elected by the People, immaterial of the power he holds should be out of party politics, like in Singapore, who is required to be a person of some skills and experience, checked at the time of submission of nominations.

    Since he cannot have a political backing, he could easily be impeached for wrong doings.

    It’s time he enjoyed the loote that he siphoned from the government institutions and the Central Banks rather than seek re-entry in to politics. Isn’t the Komish that he pocketed with his family sufficient for him to survive for the future along with his family. People must be Mad to vote for him to get a repeat of the fear psychosis and the brutality unleashed against the people. Do we need racism injected against the Tamils and the Muslims again in our streets. Our countries economy has been raped by his family. We are in debt and will not be able to get out of this cycle of debt due to his savagery of our economy. We will be like turkeys voting for Christmas if the people decide to vote for this tyrant.

    “Mahinda Rajapaksa says that President Maithripala Sirisena’s announcement that he will abolish the Executive Presidency, is a farce.”

    He is reflecting what he did. His statements reveal he is feeling jealous and guilty.

    Many are justifiably feeling doubtful because of past experience of being deceived, but if My3 does in fact abolish the presidency and keeps his promise then he will remembered.

    The biggest culprit is Chandrika and she has no right to come before the people. She had no intention to abolish the presidency even when she was campaigning for her election as President and now we know she spoke with tongue in cheek. After being elected she dragged her feet till her first term was over and then again declared due to some practical snags she was unable to fulfill her promise and to reelect her and she would once she comes back to power, in short period of time be able to abolish the presidency and reestablish parliamentary democracy. The people giving the benefit of the doubt and trusting her gave her a second chance by reelecting her and again she cheated on the people.

    She is a shameless bitch and we are insulting a bitch by calling her one. What audacity has she to appear again in public and face the people. A disgraceful woman. Not only she enjoyed the privileges she promised to abolish, but she still claimed her right and enjoys the privileges of the retired President at the tax payers expense. She now lives in a mansion provided by the state at the tax payers account which JR Jayawardene did not claim. At least she should have forgone that feeling guilty that she did not accomplish what she promised to the people on two instances. The problem is such dirty people do not have any feeling of guilt or shame.
