Local Government Elections: Faiszer Refuses To Dance To Party Secretary’s Tune

Provincial Councils and Local Government Minister Faiszer Musthapha declared that he will not dance to the tunes of the UPFA General Secretary, and will hold the Local Government elections only by following necessary procedure.

“I can’t fast-track an election just because the party secretary wants me to. I have told this to him clearly. The party secretary is only responsible to the party, but I am responsible to the entire country,” last night Musthapha told a media conference in Colombo.

He went on to add that he should be given the freedom to conduct the election by following proper procedure.

Amidst protests led by the joint opposition which has been demanding that the government hold the Local Government elections, Musthapha claimed that it was important for the delimitation, instead of rushing for elections.

However, the People’s Action for Free and Fair Elections (PAFFREL) has requested the Government to hold elections to local councils where delimitation issues had been sorted out, citing that out of the 336 local councils, some 200 had no issues about delimitation.

PAFFREL said that if the government was genuine about good governance, then instead of delaying the elections, it should conduct the elections immediately.

    This bugger is after perks. Typical Rauff, Baithudeen etc. He cannot even get 100,000 votes on his own. As for the typical Muslim politician in SL, they just feed the stereotype that “muslim ayawa wiswaasa karanna baha, ung okkoma hamadaama dinana paththata thamai inney ungey waasiyata”. Actual words from a 3-wheeler driver in Horana. And now you wonder why.. Even ACS Hameed the star UNPer was apparently ready to jump into Sirimavo’s sinking ship in 1975-76 if he got the Foreign minister post but the negotiations failed. But only honorable ones are people like MH Mohammed, Alavi Moulana, Badudeen Mohammed etc. OF those I think only Alavi who was Governor WP under CBK and MR is alive. Very few.

    This man’s shady behaviour and his arrogance is the biggest threat to Sri Lanka and our democracy today. As a former bureaucrat in the Industry ministry ruled by this man (in the Rajapakse uniform then) I know a few details.

    Mustapha’s history in going against Rajapakse was done with big ethnic plans. He was the last man to defect to Yahapalana fraud. He took time becase he worked on his father’s instructions, to organise payments in Singapore for all the defectors who were going and coming to Singapore.

    His father (earlier Chandrika’s High Commissioner to Britain) organised the MI6 involvement in the yahapalana conspiracy. After organising all the payments to SLFP defectors through Razeen Sally (then in Singapore, EU agent) he went last to tidy up.

    He gave up the tourism ministry and got local government and became Sirisena’s Legal Advisor to achieve big plans of meddling with the electoral system. He advised Sirisena on how to appoint those who lost elections to parliament under the national list.

    Mustapha is now becoming a law unto himself and his arrogance rigs alarm bells.

    A big defeat for the Yahaplana gang in the local government elections, whenever it is held, will teach this treacherous man a lesson.

    May Allah’s curse be on him.

    More than Batalanda Ranil it is Bodhii Sira who is shitting in his pants about the Local. Government elections , although he and his Yahaplana Stooges are safe to rake it in for the next four years.

    The insults , booing, cursing and outright contempt Bodhii Sira,s emissaries are facing from the real and original Srilankans in the rural sector , who in fact are the great majority must be frightening the crap out of Bodhii Sira.

    He can’t be a dumb ass not to realise that the UNP never liked him Nor do they have anything in common with them,

    The scum bag S B Dissanayaka openly said that the SLFP grass roots hate Sira and they would love to seem him dead.

    Dr Mervyn , who is in close contact with his ex boss Batalanda Ranil made an interesting comment the other day.

    He said he made a mistake to heed Whisky Madam,s invite to him to join the SLFP.

    And he is I seriously considering joining the UNP.

    He further said that the Diaspora is srtriving to to kill Rarapaksa brothers who defeated the Tamil Tigers.

    And he got an assurance from Kira that that Rajapksas security will not be compromised, despite the Defence. Minister,s attempts to down grade it.

    Dr Mervyn categorically stated the Rakapksas are the only leaders with a back bone to defeat the Tamil terrorists.

    And he will never allow anyone to harm the Rajapksas.

    I kind a lstaring to like dr Mervyn for his honest and forthright comments unlike the shit SLFPers who sold their souls for 25 pieces of Silver from Singapore.

    Since when did this guy grow a backbone. Probably seen a few hundred million in Thai government as well.

    This is a guy who pole vaulted on to this government and also quit his offered ministerial post because there was no money to be made being in that position.

    An election at this stage might not be a good decision, buy this bloke does not care about the welfare of this country.

    Strangely, a guy who can never get the support of his own community is in charge of announcing elections. ha ha

    The statement that “The party secretary is only responsible to the party, but I am responsible to the entire country” is extremely arrogant. He is responsible to the Cabinet (headed by the President and the Prime Minister) and through it collectively to Parliament and the country.

    Of course he is personally responsible, if he messes up the local government elections. Mark my word, he is doing it right now.

      But don’t forget it is doctored.
      Knowing the man he is prepared to be arrogant like Baithudeen who went in a chopper and trashed the magistrate.
      Baithudeen moved sideways in comes the next.
      Sinhala/Muslim government from 48 not for nothing.
      Must thank BBS for the halal ban.

        SSS: “Must thank BBS for the halal ban.”

        This utterance reflects screwed-up thinking.

        For every rotten Muslim politician I can fine more than one rotten Tamil politician.
        Please stop branding communities, for you hate it when others do it to Tamils.

        It was Tamil nationalist bigotry that politically isolated SL Tamils.

          SJ sevla,

          “”For every rotten Muslim politician I can fine more than one rotten Tamil politician.””

          Who cares if you find a score of tamils from north to south they always fight among themselves as it is.

          “Please stop branding communities, for you hate it when others do it to Tamils.”

          Please get your woman, girls to wear the burka and do the walla wackabar boom!!
          To start with I am no tamil but will not trample the beaten and battered.

          ” It was Tamil nationalist bigotry that politically isolated SL Tamils. “

          It all started when JR DSS Colvin, NM all had thosa feed at Tamil Nadu because in their ambude unable to fight and seeing Madras Presidency Mounted Police and the culture that was never at war but ruled only by the Brits who captured it by negotiation.
          So when they returned they drove the Indiahn Tamils away

          Stupid Dalit SJ stop belching farting sevela.

    The rumor in Colombo is that Dubai Account that was supposedly belonged to Namal (Yahapalana government made a big noise on that saying that the arrest of Namal was imminent)…belongs to this Minister……that is why now no noise from the yahapalana government on Dubai Account. This guy screwed MR with all wrong legal and political advice. He is the one who told MR to get rid-off chief Justice Bandaranayake and he will sort out matters with lawyers and get them on MR’s side…this guy is a useless scumbag…MR should be hit with a 2’ x 2’ pole for taking advice from stupid guys like this…hope he learnt his lesson hard…Now, the Yahapalana government got screwed right royally again by broadcasting about Panama papers and indirectly linking MR to the list. It seems other scumbag and racist of the yahapalana government Champika R’s main financier’s name appears there….what a pathetic set of jokers are these guys…MR and Rajapakses are increasingly looking better and the stories about MR has stashed away money in other countries are turning out to be a joke.

    Can you beat this?
    He began his Political career with the CWC!
    Mind you it was by crafty choice since Thonda[Jnr] hits the bottle at dusk and loses control until the following day!
    Fooling MaRa is not easy,but he did it.
    As for Maithri,Young Faizer will go through his nose and emerge through his Ears and M would not have a clue!
