Mahinda Rajapaksa Will Be Defeated Again: President Maithripala Sirisena

Mahinda Rajapaksa who was defeated on January 8th will be defeated again, President Maithripala Sirisena said today. “I continue to stand against Mahinda Rajapaksa” he further said.

MaithripalaI will continue to give leadership to the change the ushered in on January 8 with the newly elected members after the next General election, President Maithripala Sirisena said.

He said he will form a government with the victorious political parties after August 17 election and he has no intention of appointing Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa as Prime Minister.

Speaking to media on the current political developments at the Presidential Secretariat today (July 14) the President said that if the SLFP win the election there are several senior politicians in the party to be the Prime Minister. Former President Rajapaksa who did not allow the deserving seniority get their due post is now trying again to deny party seniors premiership by attempting to be PM even after completing two terms of presidency.

President Sirisena said that his first intention was to dissolve the parliament on January 10 immediately after resuming as President on January 9. However he could not do so as he had to fulfill the task given under the 100 day programme. As promised I made Ranil Wickremesinghe as PM though the UNP had only 47 members in Parliament and succeeded in implementing the 100 day program that included the 19th amendment to curtain excessive powers of Executive Presidency, he said.

The President said that when the vast majority of UPFA members demanded that Mahinda Rajapaksa should be given nomination and make him the Prime Ministerial candidature, he pointedly refused these demands. However, when he had to dissolve the parliament to prevent Mahinda Rajapaksa from becoming Prime Minister by defeating Ranil Wickemesaighe in a no confident motion and enter parliament as a National list member, but he prevented these designs by dissolving the parliament. Once the nomination and election days were announced, the UPFA members demanded that Mahinda Rajapaksa should be given nominations. “Then I was left with two options. One is to resign from the party leadership. But if I had done that Mahinda Rajapaksa would have become the party President and appointed only his people as candidates for the election leaving out all those who supported the common candidate at the presidential election. To prevent that I decided to remain the party leadership but allow them to nominate him as a candidate, though I am still opposed to this. This led to political analysts and the media vehemently attacking me as a villent and a betrayer. I take all these criticisms in my style, as this reflects the blooming of democracy and media freedom which was lacking prior to January 8. But you will realize in the near future that my actions due to my belief that there should be a bicameral party system for the survival of democracy in a country and I always wanted to prevent annihilation of a political party after an electoral debacle, as it happened in 1970, 1977 and again in 2010” the President said.

President Sirisena said that despite many obstacles the government which was formed on January 8 would provide benefits to people, salary increase to public servants, reduction of fuel and gas prices and take effective steps to reduce powers of the president and transfer them to the constitution council and other institutions.

The President said that his role in the general election is to ensure, free, democratic and impartial election is held and to extend his fullest support to the election commissioner, police and the officials for that purpose. “I will remain impartial in the coming election and urge the people to select those who are suitable to march forward with the January 08 mandate” said the President. After the election results are declared for the next five years I will take forward the transformation that began on January 8 and continue in the same past for the next five years, and I am certain that the people will judge me by the end of that period. President Sirisena appealed to the media not to misuse the media freedom and enjoy the blooming of democratic rights and media freedom in the country objective.

    A double tongued, mean puppet like Sirisena can’t ‘defeat’ Mahinda.

    Sirisena’s second backstabbing made more people come forward with great determination to work in support of Mahinda. Thank god, common people are more educated than Sirisena.

    Wait till Mahinda officially start addressing people at the stage. His rousing speeches will bring more people to him. He is going for an stunning victory.

    We need genuine, straightforward, noble leaders like Mahinda Rajapaksa for our great country not duplicitous, dishonest, good for nothing, third rate turncoats like Sirisena.

      People now understand very well that Mahinda is a greedy creature and nobody is going to listen to his jilmal lies.Mahinda’s association with drug dealers, Drug smugglers, murderers are well established facts. People are much more educated and cultured than Monster Mahinda.

        I dont think lankens would ever grasph it.. the crowds {edited out] and go after show it clearly these days. This bugger surely belong to world corut leaving us all in peace.
        A man who has guts irrespective of all blunders made it publicly to show that he did not, since the prevailing lawful bodies are not powerful enough to catch the man.
        Even Egypt they could do it, but a small country like ours being unable to go against this man is pathetic.

        Actually, Rajapakshe leave SLFP could do good to the party. Since, it is not his party though the bugger smeared it. Those really loved it were the creators. They have no power to do anything today.

        Horu should be governed by hora – thieves should be governed by a thug thief – that is the motto if people would allow idiots to vote for MR and co.

      Champa,

      Mahinda is a man who doesn’t care much about anything.
      He is thick skinned, loves power and money.
      Noble is not a word to be used to describe
      a megalomaniac like him.

      Sirisena didn’t stab anyone in the back did he?

      As for you, I’m sure it’s possible for a brainwashed
      person to be rehabilitated and become a decent person.

        I suspect Champa is Mahinda Rajapakse himself because nobody on earth believes he is “Noble” except himself. You will need more than 10 fingers to count Mahinda Rajapakse’s “noble” acts he showered on the hapless Sri Lankans for 10 years. There’s Bribery, Corruption, Thuggery, Abduction, Disappearance, Murder, Lying, Nepotism, Thieving, Racketeering, Blackmailing, Embezzling and more.

          6 months passed, Sirisena or Ranil couldn’t prove that Mahinda was guilty of any of their “popular” allegations. Sirsena’s ‘special’ speech was good proof that Ranil was guilty of T Bond scam.

          Mahinda has proved more than one way that he is a noble leader. Whatever he says he says that to anybody’s face. He never resort to underhand tricks. He fought any battle face to face. Ranil and Sirisena are famous for dirty tricks. Never in our entire history we have heard an ambidextrous, mean ruler like Sirisena. He is world famous for lying. After every meal he said one lie and the second day after every meal he denies what he said the previous day and twists his own words to the utter disgust of the people in Sri Lanka. If lying was a job, Sirisena will be a billionaire soon.

          People don’t buy those lies any more. Ranil is going for a memorable defeat this time. The mother of all defeats.

        It is interesting to see how many people are shivering same like Sirisena and Ranil, by just hearing that Mahinda is actually contesting. Ranil’s courage is at the lowest ebb. Sirisena is desperately trying to give oxygen to Ranil and UNPers.

        An army of lions cannot be commanded by a fox like Sirisena. The lions only wanted them to be commanded by a lion like Mahinda. That is the difference seen by people in both them. There is no brainwash. It is the reality.

        Ranil is trying to light his candle using Sirisena’s torch. When they fail, it is not fair to find faults with Mahinda’s whirlwind.

        It looks like Sirisena and Ranil both are confused about what to do. Their confusion is a sure sign of Mahinda going for an overwhelming victory.

They are talking about building a bridge connecting the North to India..they are talking about devolution of power to the tamils..is this what our soldiers died for???? Also what about the central bank scam? Are you not informed? What about the land taken by Rishard Bathiuddin from Wilpattu? Do you not care. Shame. Shame. Shame. you do not love this country. You are like the non national UNP party who are just greedy to come to power and take this country to ruins.

        Why should he be neutral. He left Mahinda regime’s post because he hated Mahinda’s guts. We know that he does not want to live like a serf in mR’s serfdom. So it is pPerfectly alright for him to tell what is in his mind.

      Instead of anything like A KEY- better to give the bugger a cyanide capsule to find his way – can calm and quiet this nation. MR is the most hatred person among the educated community today. Not many would agree with him. sURELY, he will be defeated as had been the case with Prabakaran. The days are NUMBERS. Horu will not have their grounds in the days to come.

      I believe srilankens in general are not stupid as seen to be . They did once, the second will be soon the day people will say – clearly, no for CORRUPTIONS and corruption handlings.

      MR is making every efforts to hang on lanken politics to see political immunity if any charges would have been levelled against him. This man s real face is still miles away from the average thinkers.

      Most abusive, multi criminal minded person deserves long term jail sessions rather than getting reelcted by people.

      Please guys, just see the pics clears who are flaked by Mahinda whereever he goes

    Many many thanks for your comment Rusiripala.

    I highly appreciate your positive manner which unfortunately many do not have.

    I completely agree with you and we are very fortunate to have such a leader and Head of State like Mr. maithreepala Sirisena.

    We are proud to say our president is patient, tolerant and kind not like former dictator.

    Our president always stands on his principles and policies.
    Unfortunately our people can not understand him because previous leaders did not act like that and specially Mahinda Rajapaksa behaved like a wicked man and cruel dictator.

    People expect the same from our president maithreepala Sirisena.
    But as we know Maithreepala Sirisena is a practical Buddhist person and he acts according to Buddha’s teaching ….not like mahinda rajapaksa.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa had completely violated all principles which our Master the Buddha laid down for layperson.

    Mahinda Can not live without ALCOHOL….WOMEN…STEALING…TELLING LIES…KILLING..

    Blind and leaf people want Mahinda….
    Hope that majority will elect professionals….intellectuals….educated people…. and very pure characters like Sujeewa Senasinghe…Harsha….and so on…

      Saman

      UNP always boast of their leaders’ education, professionalism and integrity.

      Well, during the shortest UNP regime for the last 7 months, the entire country saw how uneducated, unprofessional and dishonest they all were. UNP sent country to peril at a super fast mode. What were so called economists Harsha and Eran doing when the economy was in the downturn? The two famous economists acted like nursery boys. UNP didn’t even have money to pay government servants’ salaries because Mahendran, Ranil and Ravi had stolen all the money from the Central Bank. We never knew Ranil was a mastermind in robbing government money.

      Ranil lost his credibility big time over CB Bond scam. He is no longer “Mr. Clean”. Sirisena and Ranil dissolved the Parliament in a hurry for fear in facing the No Confidence Motion (those were Sirisena’s own words) because Ranil was guilty. Whatever it is, Ranil and Sirisena make a good team for dirty tricks and cheap shots.

      Sirisena is patient and tolerant until his vicious, devious schemes work. If lying is a job, Sirisena will be a billionaire soon. Sirisena is world famous as a Janus-faced politician. At the rate he backtrack and twist his own words he should win a platinum medal. Sirisena should, of course, be proud of his skills. He is the Number one liar, schemer, backstabber, betrayer and third rate double-dealer. There is nobody in Sri Lanka who could beat him.

      His second backstabbing of Mahinda was his undoing because people took it personally. Sirisena’s callous remarks against Mahinda was condemned by people. He made a miscalculated blunder this time. It will mark his downfall because his backstabbing backfired well accurately this time. Wait and see, interesting time is ahead.

      Dear Saman,

      Who is this Rusiripala, that you’re thanking so profusely?

      If his comment is anything like your own, it will be a clumsy demonization of Rajapaksa that seems ever-so-popular among the CT readership, judging by the voting.

      Things are much clearer to me, after reading the comments by Champa and others that have been voted down, while huge ratings (by CT readership standards) are being given for any abuse of Rajapaksa, however mindless, defamatory and offensive (to anyone with a reasonable sense of fairness).

      I have to admit that I was taken in by the CT propaganda against Mahinda Rajapaksa, and am only just emerging from its brainwashing effect. Only a couple of days ago I agreed with a commentator that Rajapaksa was too old for the job (after someone reminded me of the example of my father).

      Today’s postings, with its ratings and comments have given me insight into the “dirty tricks campaigns” as they are popularly called, that Rajapaksa is being subjected to by the expatriates, which were, no doubt, responsible for him losing the presidency in the first place.

      When people make the kind of mindless statements (above) by you, Saman, and receive 32 approvals and 6 disapprovals, it is clear to me that I should be on the side of Champa and the other supporters of the enormously popular Rajapaksa, rather than the equally old, but relatively feeble and listless Maithripala Sirisena or the bland and ineffectual Ranil Wickremasinghe, whose best idea is a silly old British plan to build a bridge to India, formulated when they wanted to send tea by rail for export to the Liptons and Bushells factories, and apparently unconcerned with the LTTE/TGTE network that is patently obvious to anyone who does a bit of Internet research. I don’t know whether Ranil Wickremasinghe even knows how to use a computer.

      These people claim that Rajapaksa is filled with hatred, while in every interview I have seen him, when he speaks in English he has been firm, strong, direct and honest in his answers, with a charming sense of humour. He has a comforting presence, not a threatening or pompous one, why is one reason he is so loved.

      What I have actually seen of Gotabaya Rajapaksa has likewise not been consistent with what my father and the commentators on CT have been saying (nor what my father, Brian Senewiratne, wrote in a supposed psychoanalysis of him) where he claimed that he had an “Intermittent Explosive Disorder”, apparently a new category of mental illness (that shares the acronym IED with Intermittent Explosive Device):

      https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/psychiatric-disorder-an-analysis-of-gotabaya-rajapaksa/

      On the contrary, Gotabaya Rajapaksa seems like an extremely calm man – despite provocative interviews by British television to get him to lose his temper in that Hard Talk interview with Sacker, from which snippets were taken, out of context, to try and frame him as a war criminal. I have been affected by this propaganda, but not as much as the vast majority, it appears, of those who trust the Colombo Telegraph and its commentators for a sensible perspective on Sri Lanka.

      Despite all the negative votes, given that Sirisena and Wickremasinghe have come up with no evidence to back the serious allegations of corruption that were unanimously supported, repeated and assumed by the CT readership, the fact that any rumoured wrongdoing by the Rajapaksas is exaggerated, or systematically fabricated by his opponents (who appear to be a bunch of poorly literate snobs, judging by the CT comments I have been reading) and the discussions I have had about the emerging threat of the global LTTE network (as posted on my comments about the planned ‘Friendship Bridge’ to Tamil Nadu), I have decided to throw my support, such as it is, behind the campaign to have President Rajapaksa to be elected as Prime Minister.

      He is most certainly not too old for the job, and, frankly, I like what I have seen of the man, as well as the relatively few comments of his supporters on CT – much more so than I do the kinds of people who would vote for comments such as Saman (above) over those of Champa (below and elsewhere in this thread).

      Thanks Champa (if you read this), for converting me to the cause.

      Most importantly, to me, I’ve actually seen President Rajapaksa speaking in Tamil, Sinhalese and English. I don’t care how well he speaks any of them, or with what accept, just that he thinks it important to learn all three languages, and is leading by example. Ranil Wickremasinghe will just lead Sri Lanka back to Britain, and seems to have no original ideas whatsoever. He does seem like a rather dull ditherer, compared to Rajapaksa. It seems like the Sirisena for President plan was about the old guys getting their turn, rather than a meritocracy. If Rajapaksa is too old for the job, so are Sirisena and Wickremasinghe. I do hope he’ll abandon the astronomer, though (though this may be hype too, I’m not sure, right now).

      I know you won’t like my response, Saman, and neither will the majority of CT readers. In this thread good means bad and bad means good, when it comes to ratings of the comments.

    No body should get carried away by the president’s statement that he
    will be neutral and support the party that could carry forward his policies, which indirectly means that he is for the united front contesting under UNP symbol . Although he stated and is on record that he will not offer premiership to MR if UPFA wins ,under what constitu
    -tional law, he could stop MR coming to power,if the majority is for it. There could be further twists in statements from President’s office to come in couple of weeks time if UNP and the alliance heading
    for majority in the polls and the president may even join the fray as for them, party comes before the country.
    We have become the laughing stock of the world after the comedy of errors performed by the President’s office in a short time of six months. This is not a contest between the Greens and the Blues but a
    battle between the people and the devils.

    Prez is trying to be a Saadhu. he speaks as if butter won’t melt in his mouth. He says that MR would have come from a different party and not UPFA. That would have been good for the country and he would loose.
    Now he says that he will be neutral, which he means he is supporting Mahinda. He forgets the fact that out of 6.2 million voters, around 4 million + votes were block votes of the UNP. Now he is trying to be neutral after he got the UNP votes. UNPers did a strong campaign for him to become the President and not to sign the nomination papers of MR. He is kicking the ladder that brought him to power. If not for the campaign, he would have lost the Presidential election.

    Now he is duty bound to support the UNP which brought him to power. particularly when MR is having posters all over with him and MS. Speaking confidently that they will Polannaruwa.

    His neutrality is a cover up.

      When the president (also chairman/president of UPFA/SLFP) says defeat Mahinda, he asks Kurunegala UPFA/SLFPers to vote for the party, not to mark Mahinda’s number, preference, in case UNFGG, his brainchild fails to win the district! The neutrality of a president elected by most of the parties is obvious though the cohabitational constitution envisages a party elected president to act impartially like speaker which is a bit difficult to percieve, and that didn’t happen in the past but My3 may succeed, I hope, by virtue of his common candidacy. If the premier also directly elected by the people with president, the problem will be solved lest wilful neglect of two peripheral provinces will continue in the manouvering to the indirect or complex ways of reaching to the top slot # 2 seems and looks like a vice-presidency due to the 19 A amendment to the statute. Due to these anomalies, I wonder, how he spoke with lesser ambiguity!

    Kurunegala will treat mahida a bitter lesson.The myth to say his 58 lacs
    of people are with him is a one big lie.
    He got this by fooling people. He said even after 8th Jan he will be the President. ON the last election rally he said Sajith Premadasa would also join his party.Gullible voters thought he might win and supported him.
    THe bribes, Sil Redi . and various gifts influence some poor people.
    People had observed he was always carrying the same set of babies who were with different dresses. But he forgot to change the mothers who carried security screened same babies to all his election rallies.Rajapakse is not a fool to carry unknown babies. with this election he will not be able to fool the people.
    Last election was between two people. Immensly popular Mahinda against little known Maithreepala.

    Parliment electios are different. See , the set of candidates nominated by Mahinda.
    Most of them are rogues and they on Bail given by courts.Can the match the opposition candidates

    If mahida and his rogues get even 40 Lacs it will be a miracle.

    We need an Executive President not a puppet who can not make effective decisions.

    In his address to the nation, President mentioned that he requested RW to remove the Central Bank Governor from his post. This is a clear indication that our Executive President is not an effective decision maker.

    Therefore, MR is thousand times better to be Prime Minister of Sri Lanka to take us out of this mess created by Yahapalanaya.

Either you guys may known nothing about about world vibrant democracies of blind for every being swallowed the pills distributed by MR and thugs. This land whose literacy rate is similar to that of a devleoped nation deserve to be led by a gentleman president like MY3 rather than a drug dealing supportive man – like Mahinda Jarapakshe.
      Learn it by studying the other democracies function in Eruope.

      Alone this authentic speech of the MR President proves the levels of freedom that you guys are subjected to enjoy today. See it right man, before the wagan is gone. At least today. We salut you MY3 for your struggle for bringing the nation back to democtractic values.

    Singapore Sanathosams are taking a heavy toll on President Sirisena.

    What else can lead to this irratical behaviour?.

    My Elite mates in Colombo don’t show the same enthusiasm and the oomph which they displayed in January.

    All they say now is Don’t know Machan and don’t care machan ,

    And their lady partners say Don’t know men.

    This a clear pointer to the fate of the Yahapalanaya, come August.

    Now sira is desperate to show some solidarity with the Financiers and the Mentors.

    How sad.

    Sira has only two options.

    Join the UNP or Resign from the SLFP.

    Otherwise he will be the most hated President the great majority of the inhabitant population were forced to accept by the UNP , Diaspora and the West.

    Ranil Mahata has said he will make UN’s declaration on the corruption as the law of the country and there was not enough experienced investigators to investigate the Old King’s corruption so they are facing problem in investigating the Old Royals.

    I have an Idea for Ranil Mahata. How about accepting the help UNHRC wants to give to investigate the crime they committed? Wouldn’t it solve the problem by bringing in some experienced investigators?

    Is it too hard to get man to write report on Port City and cancel the project as you promised in the last elections? If there is no people to do that job how did you come to know the last election that it was a corrupted project and asked the people endorsement to stop it? Are telling when Chinese yuan is buying American politicians, you are nothing?

    Where did you get Mahendren from?

    The greatest rogue who refused to sign the UN’s ICC accord and created the mess the country now in is explaining to all why Old Royal’s corruptions cannot be investigated.

    It is good for him to make a speech after so much silence. Silence was deafening. Now he says he is going to be neutral. It is ridiculous for him to say that now after winning his election with the support of RW and the clan. He came out to say something yesterday as Rev Sobitha’s meeting is today. MS is a crook, He waited till the six months was over and of course as we all know that during 6 months government cannot do much. He knew votes for the UNP would be less. He is trying be a statesman after doing all the damage.

        Mahinda did his dirty work through proxies. That is why, up to now no finger is pointed at him. But you can’t hide behind proxies forever. The Inconvenient Truth will come out sooner or later.

          Ranil the so-called Mr: Clean also did the same thing with his right Royal crooked gentleman friends. What they did were high flying mega frauds which a normal citizen cannot understand hoping they can escape.

    If MR becomes an MP (he will), he will be elected as the leader of the SLFP & UPFA Parliamentarians, Then, it is a matter of the SLFP Central Committee deciding to appoint him as the President of S.L.F.P. MS can not challenge it, as he was not elected as President of S.L., as a candidate of S.L.F.P. / UPFA. Then, MR will be the leader of UPFA, by defualt. If the UPFA gets the second highest no. of Seats, he will be the Leader of the Opposition, too.(which may be unlikely if JVP & TULF joins together & put forward their candidate). Even if MR does not be the Leader of the Opposition, he will be the Leader of UPFA. If MS holds on to the post of President of SLFP / UPFA, he will be thrown – out of SLFP, with humiliation. SLFPERS too will rejoice saying, this is the sweet revenge for betraying their Party at the Presidential Election. People who voted for MS will say that, it is dittadamma vedaneeya karma for MS, for destroying the only hope the people, specially the Youth of the Nation, created by themselves, with many sacrifices. MS forgot that, what is popular is not always right & to stand for what is right at any cost, which people did. He failed to think as the President of the Country, for which he should never be excused. If MR used his absolute power for worst, people would have never gone against a man who used some of those absolute power for good of the Nation. If he is a matured politician & a leader, with some brains & back born to stand against MR & his Mafia, as soon as he was appointed as the President of SLFP, he should have asked the officials & Members of the Central Committee to resign. Then, he should have appointed Members who are favorable to him, specially for the Post Of Secretary. Then, dissolve the UPFA & form a new UPFA with a Secretary favorable to him. This would have given him the control of SLFP & UPFA. What a weak man to be the President of a Country. Now, he can preach all excuses, thinking the people are bloody fools, but the result is the biggest insult to humanity. How can this MS eradicate Drugs, which is an international Mafia, with such weakness, when MS could not even face the MR & Mafia, with the right strategy. It is just a propaganda to cover-up his defeat in the hands of MR & Mafia. The result will be creating RW Mafia & MS will be just a spectator, saying : Yes, Sir. Ehemai, Saar. After, great betrayal, all these stories are called WEDI BANA, in Sinhalese. We, the poor & average People of S.L., will be the sufferers for ever. The youth of this Country will never believe that, the Ballet could bring them change. What a betrayal !!!!!!!

    This election and present politics is just like Mahabaratham between good and evil. When you watch that gambling, your blood boil and wanted to hit Pandavar king for taking stupid decision but eventually justice win. Likewise eventually MR and co will eat jail food or if he is a dear family he will end himself like Hitler for the past stupid killing for no reason – ashamed of his stupid ego and forced to climb on a papa tree by his brothers.

    The man lost his foothold in the UNP. Now he is losing his grasp on the slippery SLFP, even though he is nominally it’s leader.
