Five Top Diplomats In Colombo Warn Sirisena Of Dire Consequences: Sirisena Delays Official Response To Speaker’s Letter

Heads of five diplomatic missions in Colombo have met President Maithripala Sirisena to discuss the current political crisis and expressed strong displeasure at the developments in Parliament on Thursday and Friday, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Sirisena

Among those who met Sirisena were the heads of diplomatic missions of the US, UK, the European Union and Australia, informed diplomatic sources told Colombo Telegraph.

They had informed Sirisena that his administration would face “dire consequences”, especially in the diplomatic sphere, if the crisis persisted. They had asserted that Sirisena should take the lead in resolving the crisis, without delay.

At a meeting with one diplomat, Sirisena had said he had assurances from several key UPFA MPs that former President Rajapaksa commanded majority support in the House. The President had said he appointed Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister based on such assurances.

It is against this backdrop that Sirisena has delayed responding to the letter sent by Jayasuriya yesterday informing that the second No-Confidence Motion against Mahinda Rajapaksa was adopted by Parliament.

Although the President, at a meeting with SLPP MPs, said that he did not accept the second No-Confidence Motion, he has not officially informed his opinion to the Speaker thus far.

Sirisena, when he met party leaders supporting the No Confidence Motion earlier this week, said he would resolve the current political crisis within “two-three” days. However, when he informed the SLPP MPs that he did not accept the results of the second NCM, the matter came back to square one.

    The said assurances were faulty, parliament has spoken.
    The assurance on the abolition of the precedency (dictatorship) can yet go ahead.
    Afterwards hold a general election.

      What many do not understand is that from our total exports, 48% is to the US. A 30% is to the EU. So if 80% of our exports is shelved till we restore Democracy, Silisena will have to eat Humble Pie. Another easy way is to slap a travel ban on all including the Politicians from visiting their countries. There is lot more that the International Community that has not acknowledged MR as the PM, could do to rub the noses of both MR and MS on bare ground, without hurting the masses with embargoes. MS’s bravado will fly through the window, if he tries to act tough.

      Entire world is still waiting to see, if President apologized for the brawl that tarnished the image of srilanken parliamentary democracy yestreday.

      Rajapakshe loyalists are also the loyalists of SIRISENA since last 26th Oct 2018.
      So, we ought to hate not ONLY Rajapakshe but also SIRISENA for the crime acts committed by Rajakashes loyalists yesterday.

      Why should the People of Sri Lanka be isolated because of one madman, Traitor, Sevalaya, Mala-Perethaya, Pathoaya and Pachaya?

      Sirisena, should be isolated in a Ward at Angoda Hospital, after impeachment Is is best for Sirisena and the Populace

        But Amarasiri aiya in 2015 wise men (including you?) told us he was was a Bhodisatva (one destined to become next Buddha) and the chosen one to lead lead us towards the noble ideal of ‘yahapalanaya’. You were wise then or you are wise now? Or we humbly have to accept whatever you say at a given time?

    I can imagine how much Stress then President Mahinda Rajapakse went through because of the foreign media and the so-called international community to which If we export we need to fulfill all the obligations of their GSP requirements. but when we import, or when they export there is no need of such GSP requirements from us. So much for democracy, human rights, the transparency and respecting the sovereignity of other nations. They are still in the colonial mentality.

      Sirisena is subjugating to Mahinda Rajapaksa and cronies, whom he stabbed in the back, a few years ago Now he has stabbed Mahinda in the front, and made him look stupid, and a greater crook than he was known to be. Both are losers and crooks.

      deja vu. The term déjà vu is French and means, literally, “already seen.”

      Do you think Rajapakse and Srisena are equal to Srilanka?
      SRi Lanka = Rajapakse = Sirisena
      Rajapakse is a murderer/ Briber/liar
      Sirisena is a cheater/liar an associate of rajapakse.
      I think Srilanka is for truth, honesty.

    Dear Sirisena,
    You have proved without any doubt that you don’t know the basic mathematics (arithmatic). I don’t know how you passed your 5th standard. You can fool even the former President or even Prof. GL Peries with your calculations because their brains are dead or paralysed. But you met world’s powerful nations diplomats and telling that Mahinda have got 113 or over MP,s. support. We saw 5 of those who crossed over to you after receiving 500 million went back when they knew you don’t have even 100. We saw how your ministers and MPs behaved in our parliament illegally and violently and you have to lie again and again. I understand you will not work with Ranil, otherwise you will resign your post (I know you are not going to do that because we know what Mahinda will do to you once he does get PM). If you don’t mind please resign your post and allow this country to return to function.

    What the BEAST So called PRESIDENT SIRISENA S STATEMENTS has no more credibility. Zero credibility.

    He assured having met with multi party UNF representatives that the SECOND NCM vote would have been accepted even if it would have been based on VOICE/EYES votes.

    And there, he was not under aclohol or drugs, almsot Dr Rajith Senaratne who named the meeting was very reliable to solve the alarming situation within 3 days.
    But amidst high risks, Honorouable Speaker life risked the brawl in the parliament, as no other speaker in the world would ever do, and results were informed to the president as due.

    And to that, Rajaapskeh loyalists that demolished almsot everything in the parliament yestreday on revealing to the world, how crime friendly the Rajaakshe loyalists have been, having held a meeting with very same president yestreday afternoon; President and his loyalists were believed to be not on drugs or alcohol added, that President would reject to respect the results as they were not in compliance with his expectations.

    This is the reason why were compelled to read that tabloid reported it as ” even second NCM voting is rejected “.

    Now as I read here, he is to have added the visiting diplomats that he was misled by Rajaklashe loyalists át the begining having said that the numbers would have been ready.

    So there are discrepancies between Rajakshes loyalists and Presidents information. Why is that ?
    Either Rajapakshe loyalists have kidnapped President.

    So we woul dnot be surprised, that President would be coming with the next news, no I ONLY read that in the news papers or anything he evasively feels to be the VERY RESPONSE.

    Please ASK FOREIGN community to help yu if you cant manage to do the job well IF YOU ARE perhaps under threat.
    We the folks beg you to hurry up for a fair solution !
    People will hate, but we need not to stay with ANXITIES !:

    At Last Retribution: Worthless Sirisena, creates this problem and then watches from sidelines in his special sadistic way. The man’s character is amply described by his own daughter in the book authored by her about her father called “My Father the President”. She says that he once set fire to the entire paddy harvest of his father because his father admonished him for something.
    .
    Sirisena is not only a coward and a bully, but a demented character. He is irrational, pompous and a threat to our motherland. If this goes on he could be major threat to the region. He should be removed forthwith if not voluntarily, by using appropriate force and sent to Angoda.
    .
    I whole heartedly support the tough actions mooted by the Western Governments. No country is an island today and even a minor action by a small country can have international ramifications. They should act immediately.
    .
    His guard dogs like Wimal Ooruwansa and Gonmanpila are sure to come out barking. But a good kick would keep them quiet and unlike real dogs these human -dogs may even change their master. Just ignore them, they are not worth anyone’s time.
    .
    My information shows that Sirisena is now tipping his missile arsenal of Ahas Kooru with Chili Powder. I suggest that the government starts distributing free goggles to the people and provide good eye wash – something our people are used to and the governments have been good at.

    P.S.: MR is just a thug. A thug will listen to overwhelming force. When the time for reckoning comes he will purr like a cat seeing Deekiri.

    The Heads of Foreign Missions saw this LIVE while being in the accommodated seats in the Chamber. So this “President” is unable to give any “Explanation” to them as he does that all the time with the PEOPLE of Sri Lanka. This President has acted just like the “Monkey” with the “Razor” – A useful tool in the “WRONG HANDS”. Yet, he, The President has done one thing very commendable. What? To explain that, permit me to reproduce here. A “Face Book” posting which said: ” The President placed the “Casket of Buddha Relic” on the head of MR, but “PULLED DOWN” the “SARONG” (cloth MR was wearing). Do we have to write volumes to explain that situation any more? Will this “PRESIDENT” act FAST and MAGNANIMOUSLY to RE-ESTABLISH the sanctity of the Democratic System of Governance? I doubt it?

    It is high time that the diplomatic community in Sri Lanka stepped in and pulled Sirisena by his grama sevaka ears and tells him in no uncertain terms that, it is he who created this mess and to ensure that he takes the country out of this mess sooner rather than later.
    Whatever the Godayas may say, about us trying to live in a cocoon oblivious to the world community, the fact is that we are still a third world country and have much to lose rather than to gain by trying to get the world community on the wrong side of our fence.
    India our big brother who has been silent since the 26th October could be a lion just sleeping and watching the drama unfolding here. They just need a pin hole which if they find would not hesitate to teach us a lesson.
    In this whole episode the people of Sri Lanka have still been patient and I fervently hope they would remain so till we tide over this stupid crisis which was brought forth by none other than Sirisena himself.
    We saw some blood on the Parliament floor hope there would not be any on the streets of the country and if one drop falls, the LTTE war of 30 years would be just a walk in the park. There would be more bloodshed than what the Indian Ocean could dissolve. All that would be because of Sirisena’s greed to be elected President again. This drama has definitely taken 6.2 million votes away from him. MR would not endorse him as their Presidential candidate because if he does that they would would end up with about A million votes only.

    Standing Order was suspended and the resolution was passed. We don’t have to talk about that in detail. importantly all what the illegal government did in the lame duck operation was taking over media, reducing tax, reducing the oil price, reducing few consumer good prices & attempted to prop up rupee value by releasing the most important dollar reserve built up all these time. So to stop more damage to country in their effort of hijacking the parliament and using it as tool to an election victory, some urgent injection is needed. So this rush method sought instead of leisurely taking 10-15 days. Donkey trading is nothing compared to the cyclone damage attempted to the economy of the country.

    Unlike New King’s illegal Appointment, dismissal, prorogue and dissolution, suspending Standing Order to attending an urgent matter is normal, usual and is legally valid procedure. Now EP trying another illegal thing that is challenging the Parliament goes into suspended Standing Order Mode. As soon as the resolution to suspend the Standing Order is passed, Speaker is just another member in the Chamber and Parliament decides with the majority. He cannot enforce any procedure on the members. Probably some other Parliaments may not allow this type of matters decided the Standing Order suspended. But our Goolayas watered out everything only to pass anything in hurry against Tamils. Other than that, after suspending standing order, they would not have passed anything useful. Normally Parliament faces problems to convene because none of these 8th graders go to the parliament in normal days.
    Sumanthiran passed the suspension resolution. He wants to go to court to have that procedure accepted by EP. (Sumanthiran passed the suspension resolution & Anura Kumara passed NCM resolution. They purposefully split into two functions so one minority party need not to take the entire wrath the emperors. ) Let see what is happening Monday in the court and for the talk of the diplomats. Now it is double edged sword.

    I don’t think a coward like Ooru Sira needs a lot of persuasion by the Western Governments. He is not just a coward but a selfish coward. Such people do not care two hoots what would happen to others. He is worried about his own dirty skin.
    .
    One does not have to hold a gun on his head for him to surrender. Just inform that unless he surrenders completely he, his family and his cohorts would be Persona-Non-Grata in their countries. That would be it. He will purr like Silvester the Pussy cat and worship at your feet.

    This guy thinks that the diplomats are a bunch of loonies to believe his display of innocence that he had believed what some UPFA MPs have claimed to be factual. Nobody in their right minds would expect an executive President of a country to make decisions and behave the way he has on the basis of hear say! This whole crisis was the result of political machinations by him and MR, which has now begun to boomerang..

    MS is a state terrorist, single handedly rebelling against the constitution. There is no one to stop him. Worse than prabakaran in my opinion as the latter was clear and external threat.

    This fool MS is acting like a child.

    Ranil commands the majority in parliament. Even though the president does not him, he is duty bound by the constitution to appointment Ranil as the prime minister.

    This goes beyond personal qualms, it is about the fundamental law that forms the basis of our state and the first citizen has broken it..

    You are ruining our nation MS. Whatever an ayota of international reputation we got is eroding fast. History will judge you as a traitor similar to prabakaran for all that I care.

    This is not about political parties, this is about unlawful behaviour of the first of Sri Lanka. Already Supreme court given the ruling that you have made an illegal move. If you have iota of self respect or shame, you will resign. If not, wait for people to get rid of you.

    How can Maithiripala Sirisena say that several key UPFA MPs said that Mahinda Rajapakse commanded majority support in the Parliament, when MR could not defeat the no-confidence motion brought against him twice. This is absurd. Even a small child would know this simple maths. Maithiripala Sirisena is only giving Mahinda time to buy more MPs to his side. The issue is will democracy be bought over for money? Maithiripala Sirisena will be responsible for the down fall of the country’s economy. It appears that he is not worried about the people, as he is the Third richest politician in Sri Lanka as per Forbes Report. If Maithiripala cannot work with Ranil, then Maithiripala should resign and allow Ranil to be PM under whom Sri Lanka will witness a economic boom. Why not an opportunity be given to Ranil. Why is Maithiripala scared to give Ranil an opportunity?

    There is much speculation on the hourly moves of MY3 – apparently he is being twisted by MR to achieve his
    hidden agenda in anyway possible in a desperate hurry, especially with the Special Courts activated.. MR has dipped his foot in the water and he wants to complete the swim – the supporters are all with some Court Case or accusation and are bound to carry out MRs ulterior motives.. IC has gauged it. The Army Commander might as well put in a word or two immediately in ears of MY3, for the sake of the Country. Any blaming of China-India connections are not what has caused the swift, BUT personal insatiable greed of our political leaders.
