JVP Encourages Rosy To Enter From The Back Door

The Central Committee of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, has agreed and granted their approval for the formation of a national government. The acting secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party had stated that when working committee of the SLFP converged they had given their consent and had put it forward to President Maithripala Sirisena.

RosyThe Elections Secretariat stated that the names of the winning 196 candidates will be sent to the government printer to be officially gazetted this evening. The names of the other MPs mentioned on the national list are to be handed in by the relevant party secretary’s within a week of results being officially declared.

Meanwhile the JVP had hit a discord when the Anura Kumara Dissanayake led party had included the name of Sunil Handunneththi on the national list along with the name of Sarathchandra Mayadunne. This meant that Chrishmal Warnasuriya whose name was second on the list had to be scrapped off to accommodate Handunheththi who earlier was not elected when he contested from the Kalutara District.

Warnasuriya however had posted the following comment on his Facebook page “My dear Anura; I sincerely hope that you had a REASON for doing what you just did, I am deeply perplexed as none have been explained to me! However, now that you have taken this step, I will expect you to appreciate that I too will have to EXPLAIN all of this to the many who supported us, and who are now inquiring of me – WHY? ”

Subsequently Warnasuriya posted and tendered a public apology to his supporters.

The UNFGG candidate from Colombo Rosy Senanayake who also failed to secure a seat contesting from the Colombo District, has had resounding support from her lobbyists who are egging Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to include more names of female candidates through the national list. A petition doing its rounds on social media seeking signatures at present has seen a mixed reaction to this campaign.

” Let’s not start back door manoeuvres when it suits us and criticize when it does not… If back door manoeuvres are wrong when MR did it… it is also wrong If and when MS or RW does it. For example when Mervyn Silva lost the election some time back and was brought through the National list there were howls of protest…. It was wrong then and this too is wrong if they do!! The new culture has to be shown in action not words. Continuing the wrongs done previously is not the way” stated a comment.

“Only 11 women elected to this parliament. Last parliament had 13.” women rights campaigners say.

    Current ‘good governance” queen CBK was actually the one who brought Mervyn via the national list if my memory serves me right.

    Anyone else ? I maybe wrong but my strong feeling is it was CBK.

      You should be an born idiot to attack CBK for all the wrong doings being carried out by Mervin. Mervin could behave well if the adminsitration had good rules and laws. Where you need to attack is the PAN MALLA… key person who allowed to go for abusiveness is Mahinda Rajapakashe. Learn it right LET ALONE today, it was not CBK gave a BIRTH to Mervin but you guys that supported Buruwanse and Meeharaka Rajapakshe.

      If CBK failed to select MY3 – nothign would have changed by to date. There you need to have atleast some respect to CBK. Besides Ballige putha fiction about CBK was out of dated since very same ballige putha stayed as if he ate clay during the last 10 years allowing all abuses should go smooth, This ballige putha Ravaya editor – has damaged his hand by Karma for not to have reacted fairly. Karma will punish you and all that behave wrong by supporting another jarapakshes to raise in lanken culture.

        The CULTURE OF IMPUNITY that the corrupt political representative of the moda Sinhala SLFP voters enjoyed all these years must end, and this can only be done with the law taking its course and WITHOUT a so called national government.

        There is no need for a so-called national government. The SLFP which is full of corrupt and uneducated thugs and morons is now desperate for a national government so that the investigations against Jarapassa, his family, and their criminal thugs and cronies like Aluthgamage, will not be investigated and they will not be thrown in prison.

        The UNP and Ranil should not fall for the SLFP trap – the so-called national government which will confer de facto immunity on the corrupt SLFP thugs who predominate in the Diya-wenna Parliament.

        Rosy should be brought through national list for what she stood for, a strong voice for women & against corruption , She should be given the same State Minister pot as well.
        Not taking defeated candidates may be the rule but there can be exceptions , by looking at social media both english & sinhala,including some which were not favorable to UNF , it is people’s demand & UNP cannot be blind to this , this is democracy after all

          John I disagree for what you said “Rosy should be brought through national list for what she stood for…”

          Sorry, the rule must be applied or will be abused. People have rejected Rosy and she should not be nominated through national list. She took the risk to stand for elections and failed. She should have not contested to make her eligible through national list. If you make exceptions for individuals then it will certainly become a precedence and Sri Lanka is famous to capitalize I on these flimsy excuses.

          You may claim she did a good service to people but there are equally good number to refute this. You may claim Rajapakse is a crook but there is enough to tell otherwise. If you apply exceptions to Rosy others may find it advantageous to also claim exceptions to Rajapakse and there will be no end.

          It cannot be heads I win and tails you lose. Rosy unfortunately has to suffer the negative implication of contesting the elections when she had the positive side had if she had won. You have to accept defeat in the same spirit of a victory.

          If Rosy accepts MP status through the nomination list then that will certainly go against her and the Government. People and especially the opposition is waiting silently to see proof of good Governance.

          My advise to Rosy is to publicly announce she would stand by the verdict of people and will not enter parliament through the back door.

            Prez My3 is going to appoint some who could not make it because they were not considered as MR supporters, JVP already appointed Handunnetti, so they too will go to the category you mention, but they had the courage to do that.

            For fear of MR & crowd’s criticism we should not deprive Rosy , the voice of voiceless women & children in governance. She was not”defeated” but could not make it through PR vote

            Look at the broad picture, even “kudu lansa” came from Gampaha district preferential votes, so is it fair system? is it good for the country?

            Continuing more on why Rosy Senanayake should not accept selection through the nomination list to Parliament.

            It is an accepted norm candidates who were rejected by people should not be given a second chance through the nomination list. This is certainly backdoor entry. It is fine if the candidates did not contest the elections and then came through the nomination list. Certainly she took a risk. Certainly an MP who contested and won feels superior to one selected through the nomination list. So when one takes the challenge facing elections he certainly takes all the risk. So there is acceptable reasons to feel superior to one selected through the nomination list.

            The UNP should be very careful and resist all temptation in bending backwards to give Rosy a place through the nomination list. This is a real test of inner character for both Rosy and for the UNP. Many in the opposition are waiting to see the UNP makes an exception to the rule and will give a golden opportunity to them also claim exceptions and UNP mouth will be shut. The Opposition will claim ‘exception’ to make Rajapakse the Prime Minister mentioning good reasons why he should be the PM instead of Ranil Wickremasinghe and there will be no end. As usual ‘exception is the rule’ in Sri Lanka and we should wean ourselves from this dirty habit.

            I agree Rosy does deserve a place but in life we have to face failures too with equal courage. This is where ones moral strength and character will be judged. If Rosy takes a place in the nomination list it will only be a benefit for a short term and in the long term will do more harm. She will regret the decision. So please Rosy if you are reading my comments please resist yourself accepting place through the back door and it is a trap.

            There are many ways other than through parliament you could serve the people. I am sure the UNP can help you in many other ways other than appointing you as a Member of Parliament through the nomination list. Accept this alternative offer (other than being a nominated MP) and accept your defeat with humility and prove the voters they were wrong by your hard work through other means and I am sure you will be richly rewarded. Taking short cuts will never help.

      The difference here is its not Rosy or RW who wants to take her in from the back door. For the first time people are pleading for a well deserving albeit defeated candidate to be included in the National list. We are asking because we know and have seen her capabilities.

        There are rules and they are not meant to be broken but there present circumstances that requires exhibition of leadership and therefore some exception to the norms!! Ball is in your court RW

        Also don’t forget that the woman who campaigns for child abuse herself abused elephants during the campaign. Cant blame her – another influence of Arse who was also caught for keeping an elephant captured from the wild on his estate down south. Go on, campaign for her inclusion thro the backside.

    The JVP decision to nominate former Parliamentarian Sunil Handunetti from the national list makes eminent common sense. He is a proven performer in the legislature and his inclusion has to be seen in the context of the aberration that denied the party a seat from Matara and two seats from Gampaha. While the UPFA advocated Ethno Nationalism the JVP opted for Civic nationalism.By Nominating the former Auditor General they have set the example. Their nomination of Handunetti strengthens its parliamentary group. His seniority will give him a seat in the first row in opposition benches.

    Ms. Rosy Senanayake deserves to be in the new parliament. These people votesd for Wimal BUruwanse and Gommanpila but not to this grand lady who fought every minute against the injustice. She is talented and he has the ablity to fight against wrong doers. Her voice outreached many but not the stupid voters.

      Yes, I listened to hers many a times, she is exceptional politician. Actualy, idiotic stupid people have no brains to vote for her and give her a significant mandate. Even to date, there is not equal rights for women leaders in the country who produced first female PM MrS B to the world. Women should go demonstrating asking more rights in current srilanka. at least 30% of women should need to be in politics so that they can work proactively on all unfairness being promoted by guys of the kind Kumaraweligama or the like who are the most abusive polticians on the bunch Rajapakshe.

    The title of this article is somewhat misleading. The article does not give any evidence as to why and how the JVP has in any way lobbied for Rosy. As far as Sunil H is concerned, taking him in was the right thing to do, because he is a great asset to his party, to the legislature and to the country at large. His case is an absolute exception, which does not compare with other names mentioned in the above article.

      This argument could be apply for even Lalkantha. He is also asset for JVP as Handunneththi. Then why national list? is there any meaning. JVP should be more under yahapalan practice.

      Rosy is a lot of hot air because she has not pushed for the rights of children as much as she has spoken. She talks a lot but if you look into the children in homes with no light at the end of the tunnel, she has done nothing. There is first hand experience with her and she talks a good game when you meet her to get something done but does nothing about it. She had the audacity to tell one person who needed her assistance that she was very busy with the upcoming election. This means, her election was more important than the job she had to do. All hot air. She is not educated but just because she made a name as a beauty queen, she is more interested in her church conversions. Some of you are blind not to see through it.

        Dear Wantdetails & Neo,

        My backing for Rosy is driven by issues of women and children in this country.

        New Parliament in SL will have less than 10 female members. A record worse than in primitive Saidi Arabia. You don’t think that is a problem?

        Neglected children in Sri Lanka are a voiceless group. A terrible crime against the most innocent period of somebody’s life, childhood.

        I will vote for anyone who will raise this issue. I don’t care which party they belong to.

        Cheers!

        PS: We are unlikely to make progress on these issues by sending Geetha & Lohan to Parliament.

    ” Let’s not start back door manoeuvres when it suits us and criticize when it does not… If back door manoeuvres are wrong when MR did it… it is also wrong If and when MS or RW does it……”

    The people of SL voted in a new regime because they were tired of cronyism & nepotism. Good governance is based on principals & hopefully the new Govt. understands this. It’s arguable that Ranil could have got more votes if his clean image was not clouded by the bond issue scandal. It’s still not late for RW to get rid of cronyism & stand by the principals of ethics, justice & fair play. On the other hand, 300,000 voted for an uneducated yob, Weerawansa & a further 650,000 in total voted for undesirables & corrupt thugs like Gamanpila, Premajayantha & Lokuge. Therefore, it is imperative that MS & Mr ensure that these unsuitable yobs are kept in a tight leash, keeping them in the back benches & not further allow cronies as well through the back door.

    It is a pity that there are few or no educated & competent females in the cabinet but aging film stars & celebrities should not be appointed on the national list, just to boost the numbers.

    The chances of Rosy going to Parliament through the backdoor is high considering her earlier close relations with Ranil. As far as many people I have spoken to are concerned, Rosy has little to offer to bring relief to the serious problems of both the poor people and the economy. When the UNP included Harsha and Eran in the National List earlier here was the right thing to do. They brought academics and experts of established reputation to politics – people who would otherwise not like to suffer the hurly burly of politics. Both have since received massive popular public support to enter Parliament on the basis of their learning in the economic field. Both educated the country and electorate with their knowledge in the past few years.

    What has the once pretty and ageing Rosy to offer? The best she can do is to repay the unpaid debts she accumulated when she was joint owner of Don’s Restaurant – a failed restaurant.

    This is a Contest between Principles, and non-Principles.

    Deserving candidates vs. non-deserving candidates.

    There are many experienced candidates like Rosy and others from JVP and UPFA who were not elected because the field was crowded.

    “Only 11 women elected to this parliament. Last parliament had 13.” women rights campaigners say.

    This is not a quota system where women are appointed, because they are women. They need to be competent and contribute. Colombo voters decided that Hirunika can contribute more than Rosy. We know both can contribute. So, an argument can be made for Rosy.

    Are they more competent than those who are currently in the National list?

    There are other competent ones in JVP and UPFA, and UNP who should be accommodated by the National Lost, even though they we defeated.

    I have one important question to ask.

    Why is that 60% of the Country’s registered voters are able to elect only under 10% of the elected legislators at all times?

    Hope atleast now they will wake up and rectify. They really do not need Charity to get appointed into parliament.. They only have to Vote! and vote for female.

    Women did not require male charity to become majority Teachers.

    Sizable number of female are there as Engineers, Doctors, Surveyors and all other professions. even tea plukers, manual labourers etc except polititions. WHY?

    Ms Rosy deserves a place in the new parliament.She fought against corruption,child abuse & violence on women etc. I admire very much on her attempts for GG. On her election campaign,she was compelled to limit her activities due to pressure from her own colleagues,which resulted in lower preferences. As such an honest lady of GG she needs to be in NL nominee.

    Man what do you mean by nonsense by lesser parties?

She is a proven leader, the country and people badly need her services. The children and wemon folks of the country going to greatly miss her services, to whom she dedicated herself immensely. Hence, there are no issues, if the PM appoints her in the national list to the parliament. Further it’s not a joke, she obtained over 65000 votes, and due the accommodation of outsiders she lost out.

    Rosy could not enter because she did not rob and did not have the money to spend on TV & Press Advertisements. Under a first past the post system where ill gotten funds are not so important, she would have easily won.

      Aha! So, you now want to give her the chance to rob and steal? By making her an MP , that too, at ANY cost -even bringing her in thro the backside when those who were supposed to vote for her knew better.

    RW does not have to go against any principles to have Mrs. Senanayake enter Parliament as a Nominee. She can serve some of her pet issues such as child and women’s care and health,(and very important issues) as a paid executive of the government. She will be better than most as a Chairman of any public corporation too. Don’t send her as an Ambassador because she is useful in Sri Lanka

      What basic educational qualifications does one need to be appointed Chairman/Chairperson of a Corporation ?

        Excuse me, it seems that you are unaware of Rosy’s academic background. She is not another Geetha K of witless natter. She is double qualified with degrees for law and business management, one of them from Harvard.

      You mean Hora Nika? Maybe not. Otherwise by this time she will be titillating our foolish and sex starved menfolk with her titillable assets in the glare of the cameras.

    Colombo Elite, Anglicans, and the Vellalalas would have not known the difference between Market rate and Mahendran’s Family rate on our Bonds, if not for JVP Handunnatta..

    Poor bugger was shoved off to the the lion’s den in Matara , while Batalanada’s new Buddy Green Prince Kumara got the safe spot in Colombo.

    Did JVP Prince deliberately cut him out because Handunnatta knows too much about Finance, Investment and Interest Rates?..

    Rosy lost because of Ms. Premachandra and Mrs. Muzzamil split the women vote. Both are carpet-baggers who came because of father and husbands’s connections respectively. Rosy on the other hand has been in active politics for almost 15 years, if not more.

    Sumanay, what have you against the Colombo Elite, Anglicans and Vellalas?! And what have these three that is common to each, essentially?!

    Ms.Rosy Senanayake is a cut above most of the Parliamentarians of the current era. It is disappointing she has not been successful in the elections just concluded. If she is left out, the country/party would lose her valued services when it is needed most.I am sure her Party would find a way of using her talents one way or another. Personally, I would see no reason why she should not be appointed through the National List and I urge the incoming PM to give that serious consideration.

    Dear Mrs. Senanayake,

    Argument for getting Sunil H to the parliament: JVP fell well short of their targets. They need capable and experienced politicians to make a meaningful contribution towards parliamentary proceeding. There is no one better than SH.

    Argument against SH to parliament: JVP vehemently projected their politics are purely based on policy.Their policy was to appoint people nominated in the national list accordingly. By appointing SH, they have gone against their pledged policy and have thus become a party who says something before power and does another thing after.

    Which argument is more valid? in my humble opinion it is the latter since I sincerely believed JVP will do what they say. They failed at the first hurdle.

    My dear madam,

    I am one of the many who where shocked,and dumbfounded,when the colombo district preferential results where out,and to find you not in the first 05 was a bit much to comprehend,further to my utter horror to find that you had been voted out,made me think why, and in my humble opinion i feel it was or had all to do with Priority.and if you examine you will note that you may have been led astray by many a good intention, well as the good book tells us it is gods plan and not ours. be strong in you faith and be focused.

    God bless you in your future endeavours,
