JVP Seeks Abolishing Of Executive Presidency, Hands Draft 20th Amendment To Speaker

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake handed over to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya the draft of an amendment to the Constitution that seeks to abolish the Executive Presidency.

Anura Kumara

Abolishing the Executive Presidency was a key election promise of President Maithripala Sirisena, but hopes of it being delivered were deflated when the Government brought the 19th Amendment which only pruned presidential powers.

President Sirisena has on occasion pledged to make good on his promise, but has also hinted that he has not ruled out contesting the next presidential election.

Originally, the 20th Amendment was to be about electoral reform, in particular replacing the current proportional system with a mixed system that retained features of it but allowing for a certain percentage to be elected through the first-past-the-post method.

      “It shows the quality of the people we send to parliament.sirisena should keep his promise.”

      Those whom you voted for and elected didn’t come from Planet Nine. They were born, bred, “educated”, ……….. here on this island.

      Lets face it, this island could produce only those kind of people with those kind of quality. Even if there were to be Intelligent Redesign from Outer Space it would not change the fact the people their civil and religious leaders will remain the same.

      I suggest mass emigration to Planet Nine if you want to change the people and their leaders, see if they could find head transplant operation in industrial scale.

      Dear Anura Kumara,

      RE: JVP Seeks Abolishing Of Executive Presidency, Hands Draft 20th Amendment To Speaker

      Great, and thank you

      This will expose the farce of the liar, Sirisena, who has earned the titles of Traitor, Liar, Patholaya, Sevalaya and Perethaya from the 6.2 million who voted for him to be President and abolish the Presidency.

      Sirisena is a about self-interest, just like the ACJU Ulema who will not reform the MMDA, so that they can legally rape young girls, and can be traded as chattel by their male guardians.

      “It shows the quality of the people we send to parliament.sirisena should keep his promise.”

      Paras in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, Cheat, lie, break promises, as it the standard practice of the Para-Civilization. A such, it is the normal practice.

      Have you heard about salesmen puffing? Politicians puffing? Paras puffing? Monk Mahanama of Mahawamsa puffing?

      Puffing
      An opinion or judgment that is not made as a representation of fact.

      Puffing is generally an expression or exaggeration made by a salesperson or found in an advertisement that concerns the quality of goods offered for sale. It presents opinions rather than facts and is usually not considered a legally binding promise. Such statements as “this car is in good shape” and “your wife will love this watch” constitute puffing.

    Rathu Ali Petiya who is thriving on elephant dung has to do what his master orders him to do. Under AKD’s leadership JVP will never raise its head. AKD wants to take revenge from Sinhalayo for not voting to JVP.
    This could be another drama to put Bond Scam under the carpet.

      He was also a minister in නිල් කොල්ලකාරී පක්ෂය (Thieving Blue Party) in 2004 and his leader former terrorist Somawansa was sleeping with Dr Mahinda and was washing his dirty linen in public along with the other smart ass patriot Champika.

    20th amendment another Patchwork of JVP politicians to serve their interests and not the people or Country .

    One should read up about countries like Iceland how wisely they saved their country with right reforms by giving people Power to decide and be part of running the country .

    We still wait to see the dawn of a day when a true ,sincere Politician with clean intentions will establish a Constitution ,where a peoples power house is established to make decisions ,protect the country’s resources, approve borrowings and administer the use of such borrowing without being robbed..

    Changing politicians is never the answer ,if you have the right constitution that can be controlled by the people and makes everything transparent where the politicians of all parties and the people can read from the sane page .
    Where a e -governance is available so the people can see exactly what is happening to our resources and borrowed money ,we will only .be trapped in debts and the poor getting poorer while a few will keep on robbing the resources and borrowed money until its to late.

    If the JVP is sincere ,let them introduce such a constitution along with the abolishing of The ex a-presidency. I dare the JVP to ,it is a challenge.

    There is one billion USD coming in to the Country for the central highway .

    Who is going to account for it ?

    How will we know the money was spent rightfully ?

    By 2020 ,most probably this government will not exist ,and the new government will make a few arrests here and there same old story , they gain and we loose and end up with the noose around our necks.

    Another hate campaign will be started ,peoples attention will be diverted again ,some poor people and innocent small time trades already in debts will become victims and the story will continue.

    Sad a 100% literate people can not come together for the sake of the future generation.

    The best of our Young will keep on moving out.

    Today Sri Lankan Politicians are well seasoned about baiting the bait .

    The fisherman do not like worms of cause, but they know the fish loves the worms .

    Likewise politicians from every party ,of every ethnicity, religious groups and others , know exactly well what kind of stuff to feed each segment of peoples in Sri Lanka.

    Unless the entire population wakes up from their slumber and unite as one , arrange peoples dialogue ,without involving members of any organizations and decide on a Constitution that will be One Country, one People , we will only end up in more debt traps. when we who are here today die ,our souls will never have peace ,because the later generation will constantly curse all of us for failing to do our duty

    @if the people are Smarter ,these looters would have been in Jail ,

    rephrased ,;

    “If The people are smarter” ,even now it’s not too late to demand for a Constitution that will make the people who decide on everything and the politicians just work and really work ,its better to pay them higher salary too ,then there won’t be looters ,looting and won’t have the need to send anyone to jail .

    So let’s bygones be bygones .
    Let us see a New Constitution same as Iceland, or Swedish or Switzerland , create a peoples power block within the house ,do that first before the next election and if the people don’t demand for such a Constitution , and go ahead and only Vote for change of political party and Political leadership , The people should be well prepared for all consequence that follow too.

    The pathetic and degenerate politics of our country is amply exposed with the JVP resorting to being associated with such an important Task once entrusted to the giants of interlect as Colvin R. De Silva and A.J. Wilsen and perhaps to the Indians in 1987, who were instrumental in the 13th amendment; at the same time ensuring the Country’s unitary status. Ironically the JVP that vehimently opposed the Indo Lanka Accord and shed blood on that account is now proposing the removal of the Executive Presidency, the only safeguard that ensures the unitary status of the country.

    This Red Baby Elephant got only LKR 25 Lakhs to help Dr Ranil win the Jahapalana Govt.
    In contrast, Dayasiri Jayasekera got LKR 1 Million from Aloysious plus a Cabinet Minister Gig from Dr Ranil.
    And 34 Million LKR fro the Car Permit.
    What a loser this Red Baby Elephant is?.
    No Sinhala person lat alone Sinhala Buddhists, will vote for this loser bar the losers in the Universities who barrack for him and listen to his Bull Shit.
    Wonder how much the TNA paid him to do that Gig in Yalpanam with the Vellaa Kid Abraham to try and deceive the Dalits in Jaffna…
    BTW, Are there Dalits in Jaffna?…..

      “In contrast, Dayasiri Jayasekera got LKR 1 Million from Aloysious plus a Cabinet Minister Gig from Dr Ranil.”

      SLFP MP Dayasiri Jayasekara said:
      “It was a cash cheque and not in my name. I cannot remember whether it had been signed by Aloysius and who cashed it. Someone must have cashed it and used it for my election campaign,” the MP said. He said it was a normal practice in Sri Lankan politics for businessmen to support election campaigns not only of parliamentarians but also of provincial councillors and Pradeshiya Sabha members. “As I have said earlier I had a close business relationship with Arjun Aloysius.

      In return what did the sponsors benefit from Dayasiri Jayasekara?
      I would have thought SLFP was the guardian of Pancha Maha Balavegaya and not easily being bribed by Capitalist Neocon goons of the UNP variety.
      You disappoint me.

      If businessmen/woman are ready to invest in politicians how much Gota/Mahinda 2020 election war chest is worth? In return what are they hoping to benefit from Gota/Mahinda kleptocracy?

      Am I allowed to call them a kleptocracy since they belong to a strange cult, Sinhala/Buddhism?

    Two headed snakes are demonic freaks. Don’t know which head will bite and antivenom is rare, and when the 3rd viperine head takes to Shangri, Galle Face will be flooded and in floats Ava’s Garden. Nothing constructive happening as we are all so obsessed with Presidents and not the people. The other “Depath Naya” is the hellish utopia released by Karl Marx refusing to retire into death, and the GMOA head very deadly. They bite at both ends of profession, wanting destroy indestructible SAITM.

    From the day one of the introduction of this “JOB” to our Constitution, each and everyone who held and holds it have “Used” and “Abused” all the duties entrusted to it. We cannot blame for it, because the “ARCHITECT” of it, in assuming duties, once said: ” Now I only cannot make a woman a man and man a woman”. So everyone who followed him did even just that. That was and is what we have and are left with. Even in the future, there is NO HOPE of anyone assuming in the position doing any good to this country, other than to GRAB it by hook or crook and “USE” and “ABUSE” it’s powers. Just look around and see for yourself the names of “contenders” that have been put forward and very enthusiastically and vigorously campaigned for by the corrupted ring of “Professionals”, “Politicians” and other so called “Civil Society” organizations. To make matters worse, the absence of an “Intelligent” voter base would definitely pave the way for a another “Tyrant” or an “Imbecile” to be elected. So, simply, if we have a “Decayed Bad Tooth” PULL IT OUT. If we continue to live with it, our HEALTH is going to fail.

    JVP was in born anarchist ,even without leadership of PDN Wijeweera or Rohana or Attnayake’s had been an political ideology of anarchism that extremism Not change after 54 years since 1965.
    That is way JVP’s to want uncertainties of democracy by weak nation Constitution in Sri lanakn. Anarchism of politics by JVP want to be ” fish in trouble” which that water to capture Government -power behind door?

    JVP. this is not the right time to abolish Executive Presidency and instead you shall bring a motion to repel 13th and 19th Amendments to the constitution as this is a huge burden to Sri Lanka Economy in line with unnecessary Administrative cost.

    Besides, it was not asked by the Sri Lankan people as well and a popular person need by the people can contest the Executive Presidency irrespective of number of times held the position .

    Abolishing the EP will make Ranil the leader of the country. This was tried by the 19th amendment, executive prime minister, and the SC quashed that one. This back door attempt was well documented.

    It is clear to see. I wonder why the JVP is so eager this time to side with the Prime Ministers camp?

    Of course it leaves it open for MR to become the PM of the country as well.

    reference Dr Wijetunge comment….
    JVP has undertaken over the new political task of created new chaos and instability in Democratic Republic of Sri Lankan state by that join efforts with TNA and ex-LSSP leaders want to disintegration of center of State by aim of New wave of Separatism. JVP has new gam player shown that so-called politics of “leftists”. People should know that history of JVP proven their are extremist and adavntriism by partakes of Terrorism since 1965 very inceptions by Wijaweera?.
    It is not only this at new road map confined to TNA it has expanded to UNP of RW and Gamaralaa Sirisena of MS ,CBK back SLFP’s Federalist politics by partition of island by JVP sponsorship of 20th amendment by blessing from USA, UK and EU countries.
    By and large the aim of JVP domestically want undermined nation order of Democracy system of governances by very interest of new constitutional illusion among people of Island created that so-called” Presidential elected” is all ills of ongoing root cause political crisis in Lanka?
    This is outright politics of an anarchist and terrorist of JVP and LTTE political outlook of justified Gun Rule is only solution to be replace of Democracy. Therefor which that Newly proposed that 20th ameadeant advocated by TNA, UNP of RW and Tamil Diasporas and SLFP of MS , CBK Tamil Federalism nothing any other political achievement dismantle tiny Island into several pieces by JVP political extremism.

    has delivered!!

    It was wise of the UNP have given them the monthly payment as sustenance. See
    they have become the hand and the voice of Ranil Wickremesinghe.

    The broadening political habitat will leave little room for the Rathu Aliyas, certainly
    not for soul sellers like AKD. He is much better off than any ordinary JVPer
