JVP Likely To Initiate Impeachment Motion Against Sirisena: Also Pledges To Initiate Investigation Against Coup Offenders

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna indicated that it would initiate an impeachment motion against President Maithripala Sirisena for deliberately acting in violation of the Constitution, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Anura Kumara

The impeachment motion will be based on the unanimous ruling delivered by the Supreme Court stating the President’s actions are unconstitutional.

Speaking to the media, JVP Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath said they would initiate a no-confidence motion if the President continues to act in violation of the Constitution. He confirmed that an impeachment motion could be brought against the President.

Speaking after the Supreme Court ruling today, JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said a special investigation should be launched to prosecute everyone who supported the “Constitutional Coup” on October 26 and afterwards.

The JVP Leader said his party would also take the lead in initiating this process inside Parliament.

Meanwhile, UPFA MPs held a discussion with the President after the Supreme Court delivered its verdict. It is learnt that the UPFA MPs have discussed the possibility of “resigning from the government” during the meeting with the President. The UPFA MPs continue to identify themselves as the ruling party although the Court of Appeal interim order has ousted them temporarily.

President Sirisena, speaking to the UPFA MPs, had said he would take future political action after taking the opinion of the Supreme Court on former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s appeal against the Court of Appeal interim order into account. He had also said he was “not ready” to work with UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

    Go for it JVP – at least the people will back you to the hilt. Remember the 6.2 Million made up of non hard core SLFP, UNP, TNA, SLMC etc vote that put him in office. By now from the 5.8 – there must be a few millions who must be ashamed of the greedy pig MR who will band with you. This is defiance by a internally highly insecure individual intimidated by persons of learning in the cabinet having stooped so low beyond a low life, scum of the earth, now has the audacity to defy the laws of the land!

    Incase if he resigns , he should be punished legally for breaking the constitution. Reason for his downfall and acting as a fool is taking advice from people who have personel grudges with Ranil. People like Shiral, Maharaja Network, Keerthi, Gunarathne, Vaasu are some of the them. Then he had got advice from educated mental cases like UR, Chrishmal ( look at his hair style. Like a irc karaya ), Wijedasa, Gonmanpila. Also he was in close association with people like SB, Bookipala, Dilan and Yapa who got rejected in previous election. So he has dug his own grave by taking advice from idiots.

    “JVP Likely To Initiate Impeachment”

    Not necessary to take act on impeachment. Now that Siripala has abused, vilified and humiliated Maha Raja-Horrapala to whither the pohottuwa, a six feet burial is definitely in the cards for our card kuddu
    “Gamma kaa raala”. The trump card is an ace of ‘spade’ that will help dig his grave. What a glorious send off to our very own Moosala-Leeni of unluckdiva. I don’t mean to disrespect Mussolini but the fireworks this year will have to be lit way before Christmas and December 31st.

    The lesson of “political democracy” since 1948 that our system democracy of Parliament that chief saver
    in the Hand of under the covered operation by current the leadership…of
    .JVP.
    In fact remain that Supreme Court has hijacks that sovereignty of right to vote that due to legal vandalism of has been jepodiszed by basic that right to vote has been suppressed by unholy alliances of UNP JVP and TNA!
    The conflict of interest of People Sovereignty that ongoing tussle between that the Present President and Judiciary has gone too far which has extended that lost the Right to VOTE for majority People of Island> That is bad end of democracy has created unpersedant that example by Justice of Law of our soil.

    After that 86 years since 1931 the one of oldest Democracy nation in so-called “Third World Country” nation has lost Right to Vote by Judgment by Highest Court of law in Day of 13 Octemeber 2018 .

    The People and Citizens of Sri Lankan lost supremacy of sovereignty that motion proposed to SC by UNP TNA ,JVP, MC and other political outfits and Federalist of that NGO’s has created new environment that back to Colonial days of political governances.
    That is that how is neo-liberalism works on UNP-TNA +JVP by and large of the legal term of Justice in our soil . This is new projected of legal system experimented an Island -Sri lanka by USA, UK, EU nation and Indian big power .
    I view these are new form of regime change in developing countries that politics practices by Hegemonies .

    Needless to say that JVP is the key role played by anti -Establishment of politics of uncertainties in that through out the Island?
    An Ugly features politics of JVP has arise of political anarchism is prevailing , while politics of GUN but without GUN seems to disappear among masses of our Land.

      If Pohottuwa/SLFP/PA in Reign and if UNP had done the same what Srisena did to UNP now then would you call for fresh election as well?

      Do not say yes, because the Civic Franchise or Democracy is not just exercising the cast of vote, for what it mandated and the period it was mandated have to respected and upheld, that is what Supreme Court Unanimously decided. – Democracy is just not election at the liking of individuals!

    Well said JVP the only party thinking ahead. It is time to stop trying to make deals with a mad man. Now he claims he wants wait for the next court verdict this time headed my Mahinda’s girl friend. Maybe she can undo the present court decision. That is what both the scoundrels are now hoping for. This is a never ending tactic to deny the legitimate government its right to exists while continuing to scheme for a way to retain the illegally grabbed power. May I make a suggestion? Call out the armed forces. Put Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka to use. Do this in conjunction with the impeachment and not just kick him out but march him straight to jail with his accomplices. You need to use stronger medicine.

      First make sure that there’s a Prime Minister in place because if this joker is impeached then the current PM will become president. We wouldn’t want MR to try and step in now, would we?

    There is no alternative for MR and his coteries other than to support MS in the next Presidential Elections. The ultimate winner in the entire operations is none other than H.E the .President Srisena. So it is welcome, if it is held in early 2019.

    President had on his side lot of counsels, Advisors, who are angry with Ranil. Some of them used the opportunity to work with MS., as a chance to take revenge against Ranil, by that they failed in their prime duty to give good counsel to the President.

    Oh, please, chill out Anura, will you?
    The country is tired. Do you know what I mean? People are tired of political drama.
    The unanimous decision of the Supreme Court has ended a 7-week long unprecedented economic, political and societal anxiety. We need not to extend this path.
    On the other hand, I don’t think there is enough ground to go for an impeachment based on this matter. You should let people decide the predicament of the President at the next Presidential election. People are done with this President and the UNP government and awaiting to show their displeasure through their votes. You should leave it to people.
    There is no need to take up 20A again, either. You should jettison it.

    Dr Ranil may have won the Battle.
    But can Dr Ranil win the War against the great majority of the Inhabitants, to destroy their Influence in the Mahavamsa Land and divide it in to Ethnic and Elite Homelands ?……

    However Dr Ranil in his battle has done severe co lateral damage to this Prince and his Jathika Vipakthi Peramuna.

    Dr Ranil bought the Prince at the bargain basement price of LKR 25 Lahks to help form Dr Ranil’s Yahapalanaya .
    Now some MPs who can’t even talk properly, let alone do oratory like this Prince are demanding LKR 500 Million to help Run the Second Phase of Dr Ranil’s Yahapalanaya.

    Now the Prince and his cohorts are in dire straits,
    They are struggling to find an issue with a cool Catch Phrase to hoodwink the naive Sinhala Buddhists in the Village.
    Could this be it?..

    Impeach Sira .. Kumathrana – Karaya…
    Don’t think there is any “punch” in it get our Sinhala Bddhists pouring in to Streets..

    Poor Handunnatta,
    After doing all that hard yakka to destroy Dr Ranil’s Mr Clean image. Handun doesn’t even get a mention now a days.
    Just imagine if they used Handun’s Photo on a Poster and said “Mahendran Hora Ranilge Yaluwa” And .our inhabitants would have flocked in tens of thousands.
    And Kumara wouldn’t have had to go to Jaffna for the May Day…

      “However Dr Ranil in his battle has done severe co lateral damage to this Prince and his Jathika Vipakthi Peramuna.”

      Of all people you care about Anura Kumara Dissanayake and his JVP!!!!!
      Come on.
      Only Anura Kumara Dissanayake and JVP usually cause damages to himself and the party.
      Look at Hopper Sirisena and Dr Mahinda, they are living embodiment of greed, stupidity and self destruction.

      Where is Namal Baby?
      He was supposed to visit Tamil detainees and get them released.

      “Don’t think there is any “punch” in it get our Sinhala Bddhists pouring in to Streets..”

      Of course after pouring in a lot of Kassippu, moonshine, cheap arrakku, ………….. by the rent a Sinhala/Buddhist mob.

    In that case he must resign and bugger off! He could also save himself from the Impeachment!

    Attempts to impeach may lead to violence JVP.
    .
    For the first time JVP has called the 26 October sack and subsequent ‘happenings’ a “Constitutional Coup’ instead of ‘removal’, ‘crisis’ and so on. JVP is getting there!
    JVP obviously wants pre-coup status restored. Why did they abstain in the RW-confidence resolution?
    .
    SLPP will try to make out that JVP is an arm of TNA and imply that they are being manipulated by You-know-who.
