Kiriella Presents Motion To Form National Government With Only SLMC MP In Parliament

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella has today presented a motion to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya seeking to form a national government aiming to increase the number of Cabinet portfolios to 48.

Informed political sources said the UNP intended to form a national government with the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) which has only one seat in the House. Other MPs of the SLMC are representing Parliament as members of the United National Front.

The SLFP, the JVP and the TNA have already decided that they will not join forces with the UNP to form a national government. Therefore, the only option for the UNP is to form a national government with one of its own allies, the SLMC, and secure more Cabinet positions for its MPs.

The move comes amidst increasing pressure from UNP MPs demanding Cabinet, state and deputy ministerial positions. A group of UNP backbenchers have already threatened to function independently in Parliament if they are not given deputy ministerial positions.

“The motion to form a national government had to be fast-tracked as the government has to prepare for the budget vote. The Budget will be presented to Parliament in April and we want to ensure that all UNF MPs vote for the budget. We cannot take a risk at this juncture,” a senior UNP spokesman explained the reasons for presenting a motion.

However, JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake, addressing a meeting in Maharagama last month, said his party would take every possible step to defeat the UNP’s attempts to form a national government with its own allies and use “constitutional loopholes” to increase the number of Cabinet portfolios.

        He should be brought before the courts and punished for all what he has done for the Sinhalese people of Sri Lanka. Because he has some connection to Muslims, and he gets all the perks/bribes from the corrupted Tamil politicians, who are greedy and dreaming to become rulers of an area even a square meter in size before reaching HELL, Ranil is under obligation to look after them like a SLAVE than the Sinhalese who never bribe him or beg for anything because they are the sole owners of the land. Please open the famous and disgusting BATALANDA Report to the idea of how he should be punished for all the mischievous and barbarian acts he did on innocent Sinhala youth, most of them (hard working) were on their paths to become well respected professionals who could shoulder the responsibilities of upholding the past GLORY of MOTHER LANKA, not like these vultures-politicians who live like PIGS until the call to HELL!!!

      Ranil of the UNP,

      So it about dividing and sharing the national wealth while you are in power. The back benches are daring why can’t we share the loot as well? Or is it the IQ’s are quite low you need that many Ministers, 48, to do the same job that can be done by 18?

      Why not for a change get foreign ministers, just like what was proposed for judges?

          “What about a foreign Amarasiri to substitute Amarasiri?”

          A foreign Amarasiri, a Para-Amarasiri will NOT know the Para-Sinhala, and Para-Tamil and recognize the Para-Sinhala “Buddhism” practiced in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, and will be thoroughly confused.

          Then the BPs. Sirisena and Rakapaksa will have a field day.

    This plot of National Government to increase the ministerial posts to fatten themselves is the last nail in the UNP coffin. People are sick and tired of these crooks. The country is almost bankrupt now. What we need is not more ministers and MPs, but less of these crooks.

    This is what we call “Muslim-Sinhala Government of Lankawe. Historically Muslim parties have been inducing Sinhala Modaya leaders to go for corruption, so they can milk more. Now additional 30 ministers are forced to surrender on single MP.

    We already wrote our comment on this. Old and New Kings go for Unconstitutional coup. It is Ranil who invents the methods for constitutional coup. This is Ranil’s 18A through the 19A.

    SLMC’s Jaffna Organizer is the Kingpin of Jaffna drug trafficking. Police arrested him yesterday as per news. Northern News is reporting that he carry out this while living in the Jaffna Mosque. Hakeem spent his life behind the light posts during the Chitanta government for an accusation of a murder of a woman.
    Old Royals would want Hakeem in their side after election. They would not talk about this though they talk about TNA remote controlling UNP. So, only JVP is talking about this from the very start.

    If TNA has back bone, they should join JVP on opposing this racketeering.

    “The one’s in and thevone out are both SLMC.”

    That is why Muslims are clever in getting what they want from whatever administration they ally with.
    In SL that is why they speak all three languages while being intent and steadfast on their objective to achieve not only what they want, but also the most, and the best of it.
    They are an all weather people and have no permanent friends or enemies. It certainly is an understandable survival tactic to adopt especially when demographic realities force compromises.

    This is from an article on Infolanka today:
    “Lacille de Silva (ex-top parliamentary official) recalled the circumstances under which Parliament rented a building at a cost nearly Rs 1 bn at the beginning of the yahapalana administration though it was never used.”
    Aiyo! poor taxpayers money (Rs 1 Billion per year)! Is it in addition to the building rented for the Agri ministry that belongs to that actress’s husband who allegedly funded the UNP campaign with RaviK.
    Where is that ‘lawyers for demo-crazy’?
    Where is the Red elephant-toddler’s party: JVP?
    De Silva also says: “The much touted code-of-conduct for lawmakers is nothing but a joke”.
    Now the Yahapalana government is trying to put up another ‘funny national government’ by joining with just one Muslim MP. The open secret is to increase the ministerial posts from 30 to 45. Good job because this undemocratic act will increase the Pohottuwa’s vote bank by another 10%.
    My next question:
    How can Sri Lankan people trust this government to formulate a new constitution? On the surface, it is not even a draft, but the content is a complete constitution! What a double game to cheat the 1 million Tamils in the north. Luckily, the rest of the country knows what it is!
    Don’t people approve the ‘democratic coup’ of Oct 26th when they see this kind of blatant violations of the constitution and open abuse of people’s franchise?

    Having lived in this country for as long as Ranil, one tends to become indifferent to Sri Lanka news, especially when it features the UNP bigwigs or the Rajapaksas. One expects little that is original or good from them. The rulers will carry the country in the same stale disastrous way. The only economic policy we seem to have is to let the currency sink, and having bellowed about sovereignty, to sell off parcels of our land to foreign powers to cover the burden of debt; and to match the profligate corruption and expenditures of our leaders. The Hansard was once a treat to read. Today its quality is matched by the hoodlum behaviour in Parliament.
    There is no realisation of the damage done to ourselves politically, morally and intellectually by the Citizenship Acts and the bouts of politically instigated communal violence. We have no choice but to keep our fingers crossed for who will eventually take over our sovereignty.

    Ranil has 42 seats including himself. After thsi he will have 93 ministry posts out of which 48 are ministers without portfolios others are deputies and ones without portfolios. @0 or more gets Adheekshana – MP posts. This is in addition to RS 20 million or their foreign trips, contracts, elelctoral district Sambandhiikarana niladhari and Rs 380 million GaM PEralaiay amoney from MCC (that is something else – to nationalize everything for America). Excuse for all these is MR had 60 ministers with portfolios. Anyway this is beczuse of the CROOKEd Constitution which allows taking more MPS (in this some SLFP too coming for money)..

        Soon Sinhala sign boards will vanish and replaced by Chinese.
        We will not share power with Tamils in this country but ready to sell the entire Island to our Chinese masters.

    A few days ago in Jaffna, one Musulim fellow from outstation tried to kidnap a 12 years old Tamil girl caught by Public got a good lesson admitted to the hospital by Sinhala police by this Peodophile escaped.

    Now the Sinhala police say there is no complaint against this maniac to the police and warned that he will arrest the people who have attacked this Musulim predator.

    How is this LOW & ODOUR ?

    His SECT allow enjoying girls of any age ( there is no clear cut age limit for marriage in Isulam one can select as he wish ) because the 60 years Scientist married 8 years old Ayesh,.
    Why, not a mosque Moulave ARRANGE an 8 years Musulim girl for this Pedophile?

    Next time if they catch a Musulim bxxxxxd like this no point of going to Sinhala police simply GELD this idiot and teach them a lesson.

    Finally the so-called Musulim Koverner of the East today appointed Musulims as HEADS for all departments in the Eastern province, according to this lifetime Koverner it seems Tamils are not qualified for any post but the bottle and paper collectors can,

    When cat is not there rats dance.

        @Mike

        My spellings hurt you ? Are you a follower of 4th century sect?
        Go and talk with ordinary Muslulim folks in Tamil they will say:

        ..NAANKAL ISULAAM ANNAVARKAL ..MUSULIMKAL …

        this literally means we are the people who became Musulims after embracing Isulaam …got it?

        ( before this these so-called Musulims were all Tamil Hindus.)

        BTW this so-called Koverner is like US President post for your Musulims..do you know?

        The word “Muslim” in English was invented by infidel British OK?

        Let us not go on the rampage against Muslims as a community in this cheap manner. There are enough of these perverts among Tamils in Jaffna and in leading schools. They have been reported to the Police and usually nothing happens. It is probably the same everywhere in the country.

          @ Jaffna Citizen

          Do you know Isulam is the only religion (???) in the world legalized pedophiles?
          Under modern law marrying an underage girl is Rape and in the west 25 years prison.
          Will this bxxxxxd Muslim dare to do this to a 12-year-old Muslim girl?
          This is one the result of the liberation of N-E by Murderpakse and his cardboard army.
          So what is your suggestion for this, simply allow this to continue?
          What you will do tomorrow if same happens to your 10 years old daughter?
          Next time when public catch a Musulim pedophile GELD him in public and post it to Youtube.

    Kiriellaa says they want a national govt one reason is MR had 60 Miniter post, the other is politicians are lining up them to establish the govt.

    Ha…ha…………………………………………………………..haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Lanken Muslim lots are descendants of base born lots who arrived from south India as refugees in the era of Kotte kingdom. Fathers were Afgen soldiers and mothers were south Indian prostititudes. As such they can do whatever for their survival. Not a big surprise. Very much expected event. ministerial post here is a big thing for them than residentship in the heaven with seven virgins. No surprise. That is natural phenominance from lanken muslims . That was why our Old people given residence for them along with Sakkiliyas in our townships. .

      There were no Musulims in N-E before the arrival of Portuguese…all Musulim villages have pure Tamil names all these lands belong to Tamils.

      He He He recently one Musulim joker said that KATTANKUDY is an Arabic name …thus clown doesn’t know that 300 years ago there was a Tamil chief named KAATHAAN ruled here thus it was called KATTANKUDY .by British rulers.

      Soon these jokers will say Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa is all Arabic names.

      Saudi money flowing in the country is doing wonders and paving to a dangerous situation like Maldives, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

    UNP seems to have forgotten their own 19A, according to which UNP can only form a national government with the party which secured second highest seats. Hence, the proposed National Government is illegal and unconstitutional.
    Too bad, UNP, your own 19A doesn’t allow you to go for any other options.
    The only option is for UNP to abolish 19A with the support of other parties.

    {“……..Therefore, the only option for the UNP is to form a national government with one of its own allies, the SLMC, and secure more Cabinet positions for its MPs…………”}.
    If ‘support’ is in exchange for cabinet positions, it is not good at all.

    Can the leaders Sampanthan & Sumanthiran of TNA explain to the Tamil people as to why they cannot join UNP as a coalition partner and accept ministerial portfolios
    .It is true that SJV. Chelva, the revered leader of the Tamils & ITAK told the Tamils in the 60s that he will not join any Govt. unless, Tamil issues are settled and Tamil parties after him, followed this policy. He said it and made it a rule as at that time, Overseas educated leaders like Dudley Senanayake & SWRD Banda respected his views but today that policy does not work with the current leaders. Over the years, Tamils lost most of their rights due non cooperation with the ruling party. There is
    a saying “Out of sight is out of mind”. This well suits TNA as if they are in the cabinet
    they will be recognized as they meet the President, PM and other ministers at every cabinet meeting and if they are not there, they will be out of sight. TNA should realize this fact and change their stance on non cooperation. TNA had made the Tamils to look like slaves in their own country.

    Dr Ranil sucking JVpeers lead by Prince Kumara must be licking their lips thinking of the LKR 500 mil on offer from the Diaspora Bankers.

    It must be really tempting to retire with 500 Mil in the Bank ,considering these Kalaveddas who crept into Kotte by hoodwinking poor Sinhalayas in the Villages ,will never get a another chance..
    Comes the next Election those JVPers will be Haram in the South.

    Kiriella’s plan is to get the 2/3 and postpone the Elections.
    That is another temptation for JVPers.

    500 Mil plus another 5 years of Dr Ranil’s special monthly Santhosam, on top of the Pay and the other perks will make JVP Kalaveddas rich enough to buy Condos in Dr Ranil’s Megapolis from which our Sinhala Buddhists are being forced at a rapid rate,out even without the SFTA and ETCA in place.

    If Dr Ranil can get his mates to help the HC to give the tick, we won’t be seeing an Election for another 5 years..
    UNP heavies have always been bragging that they will make Srilanka a different country by 2025…

    Sumanthiran’s Ormitha Nadu Constitution will certainly ensure that the Srilanka where we were born would not be the same again.

    A National govt is needed to keep the Bond scammers alive after the budget. Other wise, Rajapakses use the Humongous MCC-IMF loan and they give lot of pre-election free goodies to the public to win the election. Even though the butter fly party has only 42 seats, they are gathering more to build 113 via the national govt. UNP back benchers like it because they do not want to Lose the electoral district by contesting under the UNF ticket. So, Kiriella has taken over the building up of National govt. No SLFPers will come except the monkies Vasantha Senanayake, Vijitha muni soyza and Manusha Nanayakkara who ate garbage and can see all around his mouth.
    I heard MANUSHA Nanayakkara was promised money but he has not given anything. Now, he is crying for it (GOd NAtha). at some point, some UNF people will cross the lines.
