Mahinda’s Election And Rajapaksa Future

By Tisaranee Gunasekara

“Heil myself
Raise your hand
There’s no greater
Dictator in the land!
Everything I do, I do for you!”
Mel Brooks (Springtime for Hitler)

No one wants an early presidential election, except the Rajapaksas.

Mahinda BuddhismThere is no national need or a popular clamour for an early election. The opposition is not demanding one. The SLFP and the UPFA are reportedly extremely unhappy about the prospect.

But the Rajapaksas seem determined to hold a presidential election at the earliest possible constitutional time.

Perhaps it is the stars. That superstition apart, two other reasons, both extremely rational, may be compelling the Rajapaksas to have presidential elections, one year ahead of time.

Firstly, the Rajapaksas are losing and not gaining popularity. Winning even an unfree and unfair election in 2016 would be much harder than doing so in 2015. In fact it might require a degree of illegality and violence which is systemically destabilising.

By 2016 Sri Lanka will have more highways and more hotels, possibly South Asia’s tallest tower and one or two artificial islands. But by 2016, more Lankans of every ethnicity, religion, gender, caste and class will be dissatisfied with their present living conditions and pessimistic about their future prospects. To win an election in such circumstances, targeted and localised violence will not suffice. Violence will have to be generalised, from North to South.

Secondly, and perhaps more pertinently, there is the issue of succession.

Mahinda Rajapaksa is neither young nor immortal. Death or incapacity can come to him at any time. Ensuring that his chosen successor is positioned one constitutional step below the presidency is a sine-qua-non for the continuation of familial rule. Without a Rajapaksa occupying the prime ministerial post, dynastic succession cannot be assured – and by extension familial rule would be in peril.

DM Jayaratne will not oblige the Rajapaksas by resigning. Sacking him and appointing a Rajapaksa to the post will create too much bad blood within the SLFP. The Family might have risked it, but for the presence of Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga. So long as she is around, she has the potential to become a lightening rod for inner-party discontent. And the Rajapaksas are not sufficiently confident of the party’s loyalty and servility to risk such a move, yet.

But if Mahinda Rajapaksa wins the presidential election, his hand will be strengthened immensely vis-à-vis the party. The next obvious step would be to dissolve the parliament and hold a snap general election. With the opposition in post-defeat disarray and with the UNP submerged in a chaotic leadership battle (Sajith Premadasa will remount his leadership bid, post-defeat), winning a parliamentary election will be relatively easier. Basil Rajapaksa is effectively in control of the nomination process while Namal Rajapaksa has been appointed by his father to head the reorganisation of the SLFP youth wing[i]. The new parliament will be far more Rajapaksa-complexioned than the current one.

It may also contain Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Alternately, a victorious Mahinda Rajapaksa might bend the SLFP and the UPFA to his will with the threat of an early parliamentary election. The SLFP and the UPFA are as lacking in intelligence and foresight as they are in courage. That is why they knuckled down and backed the 18th Amendment (sans that monumental error, in fifteen months, they and the country would have been free of the Rajapaksa scourge). In a similar display of outstanding short-sightedness and outstanding cowardice, the SLFP and UPFA may agree to a Rajapaksa prime minister, in return for a 1982 style referendum in place of an election.

Either way, a Sibling can become the PM and the succession can be secured.

Realistically a united and revitalised opposition has a chance of pushing a presidential election into a second round. In such a scenario, currently inconceivable ripple-effects might loosen the Rajapaksa stranglehold over the state, the government and the ruling party. Even if Mahinda Rajapaksa wins in the second round, it may not give him the legitimacy and the authority he needs to impose his will on the party and the country.

But if Mahinda Rajapaksa wins outright, barring a miracle, Sri Lanka will be saddled with rule by the Rajapaksa Family – and their uncouth acolytes – for the foreseeable future.

Ominous Omens

This week, the EU imposed a ban on fish imports from Sri Lanka. The ban will come into effect from January 15th 2015. The potential loss to the country can be gleaned by the fact that last year, Lankan fish exports to EU amounted to more than Rs. 12billion[ii].

The EU ban was due to persistent use of Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing practices by large fishing vessels flying the Lankan flag. The first EU warning came in 2012. Several other countries, which were issued similar warnings, did the sensible thing and began to cooperate with the EU. But Sri Lanka reportedly refused to curtail IUU practices which are in violation of both EU and international regulations.

Ex-Chief Justice

And according to The Sunday Times, the IUU fishing practices are being used by Chinese vessels flying Lankan flags[iii].

The EU sanctions may be an early indication of the varied and multiple costs of Sri Lanka’s dependent relationship with China, a legacy of Rajapaksa rule which is likely to become infinitely worse during a third Rajapaksa term. Did Sri Lanka fail to cooperate with the EU because of Chinese pressure? Did the Rajapaksas agree to allow the Dragon to engage in illegal fishing under cover of the Lion flag, in return for financial and other favours?

Incidentally, if vessels flying Lankan flags continue to engage in IUU practices, more EU sanctions might follow.

This is what happens to a nation when its rulers have only one ‘idea world’[iv] – power at any cost.

Once national elections are safely out of the way, the Rajapaksas will be able to move ahead with their anti-popular and self-aggrandising agenda without bothering about public opinion or national interest.  The Orwellian ID card system, which will enable the Siblings to access biometric, genealogical and other vital information about every Lankan at the touch of a key or two, will be implemented. The class-cleansing project in Colombo and other cities will be accelerated. Even if Indian pressure saves parts of the 13th Amendment it will not suffice to stop the demographic reengineering of the North/East, Israel and Chinese style. Minorities will become more alienated as the regime intensifies its alliance with Sinhala-Buddhist supremacism in an effort to retain majority support. Governance will become not just anti-democratic but also anti-meritocratic. The law will become a Rajapaksa-tool. As kinship and political allegiance become increasingly relevant in the private sector, brain drain will intensify. Internally Sri Lanka will become a Rajapaksa fiefdom internally and a Chinese fiefdom externally.

This week, former Chief Justice Sarath Silva publicly apologised for his ruling in the ‘Helping Hambantota’ case and JHU parliamentarian Athuraliye Rathana Thero publicly apologised for supporting the 18th Amendment. Let us hope that we will not be fated to hear various opposition leaders (those still at liberty, politically and legally) offering public apologies for losing a winnable election, thereby enabling the Rajapaksas to consolidate familial rule and ensure dynastic succession.

        Many thanks again Thisaranee for a brilliant and courageous article. Hats off to you and take good care of yourself. Wish the majority of Sinhalayas has one tenth of your guts and courage.

        Ranil Wickramasinghe the all time LOSER is the scum of the earth. He has not protested and NOT challenged the legality of Rajapaksa running for another election, and has put himself forward as all time losing candidate once again!

        And Sobith thero seems to be dithering and the joint opposition in total disarray and Jarapassa gets set for another illegal election… What a mess this miracle of Modays is!

          What a pathetic sight. Old SLFPers would blame RW and everybody else but themselves for the mess the country is in. I bet RW did vote for Rajapaksa but the SLFPers did.

          And Athuraliye Rathana Thero? Now he is sorry? And isn’t it strange that how power hungry these monks are for followers of Buddha who gave up power? You’d expect the Buddhists to be upset when power hungry men use the cloth of Buddha to shield themselves from questioning and accusations. But I don’t think people in Sri Lanka are that serious about their religion.

          Forget “Helping Hambantota” judgement, Sarath N Silva should be public enemy No. 1 for his decision allowing Parliamentarians crossing over; he did more harm to Sri Lanka than Prabhakaran. Besides, if his judgments are based on law what is he sorry for? These so called legal luminaries don’t seem to even know the basics here. You don’t see the law experts questioning this “apology”, now do you?

          Most people in Sri Lanka are like crabs in a pot on the stove, they don’t see the next Vietnam between China and Indian occuring in their country. Those poor boat people are smarter than these idiots, I guess. It is like the moth that flies into the flame. There is a limit to how sorry you can feel for the brainless critter. I sympathize with people like Tisaranee; to those who see what is going on this like watching a train wreck that is about to happen.

        Channdrika Bandaranaiyake Kumaratunge is the only hope to get rid of the corrupt and criminal family of Mahinda Jarapassa and hope she will come forward soon..

        My sense is that there was a CONFLICT OF INTEREST in Rajapaksa changing to constitution to contest for a third time and hence is DISQUALIFIED from running for a third time, but CBK is not bound by the prohibition on the third term since she did not change the constitution to do so.

          Dodo,

          I know you are desperate. But, forget bringing back CBK.

          Wetting your pants when feeling cold is not a wise solution. It may keep your warm for a short while. However, one risks ending up with frozen genitals. Just a few minutes later.

          Besides, Hamba Clan has a criminal file on CBK’s past. They can control CBK like a puppet.

          CBK had nearly 12 years of SL’s Presidency. We are not impressed. Enough is enough.

          Get rid of your limited & enslaved mentality to a few families.

          We are 20 million people. There are plenty of talented individuals in this country. Who can step into Presidency with efficiency, integrity & dignity.

          Cheers!

            This is seen this way only by few guys like you:

            “Besides, Hamba Clan has a criminal file on CBK’s past. They can control CBK like a puppet.”

            She is the only way out if anybody would want to marginalize the idioticf facist regime.

            It is not fair to accuse her of the entire 12 years – because we all know how it began immediately after Premadas ira took the lives of over 60k youth in late 80ties.

            CBK is the only potential leader to defeat UPFA since thre are rapidly growing numbers within UPFA being against Raja but pro CBK.

              So you want another rogue to replace the incumbent rogue? We know the daylight robberies of CBK, like siphoning funds off the President’s fund without audit for years, Waters Edge deal, Air Lanka deal, Properties in UK, etc. The bloody Banaranaikes have been the scourge of Sri Lanka from SWR starting with the Sinhala only card that began the ethnic crisis, then Sirima nationalising the estates, transport, petroleum, private education creating a downward spiral of the economy and enterprise. The smart arse then restricted ownership of land, foreign travel and issue of foreign exchange for business and travel whilst all along they saved their own property, traveled abroad and educated their children abroad. Then came the ‘one eyed bandit’. There is no difference between the Bandaranaikes and the Rajapakses except the latter is robbing with sophistication and as a pack of wolves.

      RE: Mahinda’s Election And Rajapaksa Future

      “No one wants an early presidential election, except the Rajapaksas.”

      “There is no national need or a popular clamour for an early election. The opposition is not demanding one. The SLFP and the UPFA are reportedly extremely unhappy about the prospect.”

      By the way Tisaranee Gunasekara are you working on and completing the Sri Lankan Version of Common sense pamphlet , just like what Thomas Paine did for American in 1776?

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Sense_(pamphlet)

      Given Below us What JVP says:

      For whom is the sudden presidential election?

      As President Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected for a second term at the presidential election held in January, 2010 and was sworn in November 2010 he could be in power for 6 years; that is until November, 2016. Why is the sudden presidential election called if he has time till 2016? It is to get power for 6 more years before the people’s opposition that is developing daily against him and his government aggravates further. As such, this sudden presidential election is not in the interest of the country or the people but is held for the greediness for power of one individual and is held due to panic that his power would be lost. The move spending billions of public money and ignoring opposition of certain quarters of the UPFA is to further establish the despotic family rule. It would undoubtedly be a massive future hazard for the country as well as for its people.

      JVP explains why masses should fear Mahinda

      http://www.lankatruth.com/home/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=7686:jvp-explains-why-masses-should-fear-mahinda-&catid=42:smartphones&Itemid=74

      JVP is carrying out a campaign stating that Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot contest the forthcoming presidential election and if he contests the presidential election would be illegal. The JVP campaign is to build an opposition to the move and is creating a point of view that Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot contest for a third term. Meanwhile, Mahinda Rajapaksa supporters come out with various arguments.

      The JVP has released a media announcement explaining why ‘Mahinda cannot contest a third time’. The media announcement states:

      “Mahinda cannot a third time – No illegal presidential elections!”

      News have been published that incumbent president Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa, before his second term concludes and immediately after he completes four years of his term, is preparing to go for a presidential election. It is evident that this presidential election is against the constitution which is the fundamental law in our country and violates its clauses. As such, we believe all people in this country should know the important facts regarding for what purpose is the sudden presidential election is to be held, could it be held legally, what would be the outcome of an illegal presidential election and how could it be avoided.

      For whom is the sudden presidential election?

      As President Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected for a second term at the presidential election held in January, 2010 and was sworn in November 2010 he could be in power for 6 years; that is until November, 2016. Why is the sudden presidential election called if he has time till 2016? It is to get power for 6 more years before the people’s opposition that is developing daily against him and his government aggravates further. As such, this sudden presidential election is not in the interest of the country or the people but is held for the greediness for power of one individual and is held due to panic that his power would be lost. The move spending billions of public money and ignoring opposition of certain quarters of the UPFA is to further establish the despotic family rule. It would undoubtedly be a massive future hazard for the country as well as for its people.

      Is ‘18’ ethical?

      The incumbent president is preparing to hold a sudden presidential election for his third term according to the 18th amendment adopted in September, 2010. However, this amendment to the constitution is not ethical. Despite the President asking for a 2/3rd majority for the UPFA at the general election held in March, 2010 – after the presidential election held on January, 2010, people did not give him a 2/3rd majority. As such, the UPFA government does not have a 2/3rd majority given by a people’s mandate. However, the 2/3rd majority was manipulated by getting, through bribes and presenting other privileges, MPs elected with votes against the government. As it is not a 2/3rd representing the standpoint of the people the 18th amendment is unethical.

      Why Mahinda cannot contest for a third term?

      Despite President Mahinda Rajapaksa is preparing to hold a sudden presidential election under the 18th amendment adopted unethically, he cannot go for a third term according to the present constitution even under the 18th amendment and also he cannot call for a presidential election without completing 6 years of his second term.

      Legal experts in Sri Lanka have quoted two strong legal arguments regarding this. They are:

      01. Clause 31 (2) of the constitution Mr. JR Jayewardene got adopted in 1978 states ‘No person who has been twice elected to the office of President by the People shall be qualified thereafter to be elected to such office by people.’

      Also 92 (c) of the Constitution states that a person ‘twice elected to the office of President’ is not qualified to be elected to the office of President.

      As such, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa was disqualified to contest a presidential election as soon as he was elected as President at the presidential election held on 26th January, 2010. Despite the two clauses were removed in an amendment after two months on 9th September, 2010, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaks had already got himself disqualified to contest a third time. According to interpretation ordinance act in Sri Lanka the removal of a law could be implemented to the present or the future but not to the past. Hence, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa is not qualified to contest the presidential election or get elected to the office of President from January that year despite the 18th amendment was adopted. As such, he cannot constitutionally contest the presidential election.

      02. The other reason is Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot call for a presidential election until his second term of 6 years is completed.

      The third amendment brought in by Mr. JR Jayawardene to the constitution amended the 31st clause. It states a person elected for the second term should “hold office for a term of six years commencing on such date in the year in which that election is held.”

      Amendment states ‘the President may, at any time after the expiration of four years from the commencement of his first term of office, by Proclamation, declare his intention of appealing to the People for a mandate to hold office, by election, for a further term.’ According to this the President can call for a presidential election after 4 years only during his 1st term.

      In the 18th amendment brought in 2010 the words ‘first term’ was removed and was replaced by ‘current term’.

      However, according to article ‘D’ of this amendment the President in office should hold office for a term of six years commencing on such date in the year in which that election is held before he calls for a presidential election.

      This clause has not been amended by the 18th amendment. As such, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot call for a presidential election after four years of his second term. He can call a presidential election only after six years. Mr. Rajapaska was sworn in for his second term in November, 2010 and he would have to call a presidential election after November, 2016. He has no constitutional right to call a presidential election before that.

      Illegality of the sudden presidential election:

      It is evident that Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa has no legal provision to hold the post of President or call for a presidential election even through the 18th amendment that was adopted in a hurry for petty intentions and hunger for power. If a presidential election is held before the second term of Mr. Rajapaksa is concluded such a presidential election would be illegal and as Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot contest a presidential election hereafter and as he is disqualified to do so, his coming forward for such an election too is illegal.

      Why is the Constitution violated?

      In such an environment if the incumbent President, without considering the Constitution, calls for a sudden presidential election to get elected again would be very harmful. If this becomes a precedent it would be dangerous. The President is getting prepared not to solve the issues of the people or the country but to risk the people and the country to extend his power. Such a power would definitely be anti-democratic. It would be a despotic family rule. It would definitely be harmful for the future and it should be defeated.

      The President, instead of facing this legal argument is getting his henchmen to ask ‘Why are you so afraid of Mahinda? If the ruler of the country is violating the Constitution to extend his power people who cherish democracy should fear him. People should fear when they see creation of dictators who do not care for the Constitution and laws of the country. They should not be silent but come forward to defeat this danger.

      Our responsibility:

      If Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa, arbitrarily, without considering the objections from several parties of the UPFA, ignoring the question by the Secretary General of the SLFP for the need for a sudden presidential election, casting aside legal arguments of legal experts but on behalf of his hunger and greediness for power declares a sudden presidential election, it should be defeated. It need not be allowed.

      The attempt of the President, blatantly violating the Constitution, the fundamental law of the country to go on a dictatorial path should be defeated. As such, what should be done is not to silently accept the unconstitutional and illegal attempt of the President and contribute to it but to vehemently oppose it and defeat it. It should be challenged and defeated.

      For this the people should be made aware and a public opinion against it should be created. While creating a public opinion and a people’s power the vile act should be legally challenged in courts.

      If the President is unconcerned and acts according to his agenda masses should be rallied to defeat him.

      The task of the JVP at the moment is to rally the people against this illegal act. Hence, we call upon all masses to come forward to defeat the attempt to hold an illegal sudden presidential election.

        What kind of professional integrity and judgement this Sarath N Silva have showed in here? who seems to be show on TV as a keen follower of the Buddha and dressed in white and carrying a basket of flowers in front of the TV cameras.

        Accept his or her wrong doing is a very good thing, but with the state of lawlessness in the country which has eroded more or less like a African Junta state have many contributors and Sarath Silva is one has to take most of the blame as much as the Rajapaksas.

    Problem is, Rajapaksa don’t know about politics! He won the election in 2005 by a thin margin. Thanks largely to JVP and Mangala Samaraweera. He went for elections soon after war and secured 60+% in light the that spirit. Now, in the 3rd term, trying to cut an illegal corner. He tried everything to coverup this from world, including the one to hoodwink the HH the pope, the spiritual leader for near 2 Billion people on earth. Christians won’t like that. Now there is ho hope for him! People will also soon know who is real culprit behind the scene of EU court verdict against a dead organisation and why! Some people think being cunning is the qualification to secure power in politics. Rajapakse is a poor victim of that stupid notion. He destroyed people,young politicians, followers, officials and their dignity only for his advantage: Something a true politician MUSN’T do. Politicians need a clean character first. He is robbing and plundering – that is the forbidden apple in politics, according to Socrates.

    TG has put down the possible scenarios well.

    However the problem also lies with the majority communities never ending carrot eating habits. Carrot distribution has started in earnest and the masses are already praising the raja for his carrots. This is a loop, majority of our voters are politically immature to come out of this loop.

    UVA election was a good example. There was a fight but too many carrot eaters.

    ‘Then again dont believe too much into what Sarath N Silva and Athuraliye is talking about’.

    Absolutely correct Matilda Ellepola. The above two and the others you have mentioned are with two tongues.

    Rajapaksas cannot lose or they cant afford to lose.
    Then again they know that they cannot win this time, so they will try every dirty game on earth to win. Intimidation is their latest game plan. A Dirty mouthed low class pariah and a Rattaran Chain snatcher has been used to silence a UNP member from debating in a recent TV debate as a start just because the same UNP member called the Rajapaksas ‘Perethayo’ in an earlier television debate. This is purely to discourage/demotivate/intimidate the opposition members from talking bad about the ‘Paksa’ mafia. Not to say anything bad about the Rajapaksas was clearly conveyed by both the UPFA members in that recent debate and we all witnessed it. Apparently they had other plans such as physical attacks provided the opposition debaters challenge them. They were careful not to get involve with the JVP yet.

    Rajapaksas are desperate as the time is running out. Its time now for CBK+RW+SF+Sobitha himi to come forward as a common force.

      Well said sir! Those slain snatchers and the Medamulana guard dog were asking for files? We Sri Lankans are smart. Exception to the rule are those donkeys and their lackeys.
      1+1=? IF THE ANSWER IS 2 or even 3 ? We may even look the other way ifit was four but 500? Who needs files? How did Namal earn the money for Lamroginis? How did the entire Madamulana thieves get houses and lands all over Colombo? How did Aluthgamage Mervin Silva Johnston earn money ? Do we need files?

    “DM Jayaratne will not oblige the Rajapaksas by resigning. Sacking him and appointing a Rajapaksa to the post will create too much bad blood within the SLFP”

    It’s so simple. Sripathi Suriarachchi kind of Accident will take care of DM’s fate and Rajapaksha can appoint another Rajapaksha to the Premier post.

What about the Welikada prisoners who were mercilessly gunned down a couple of years ago? Imagine what dirt they may have held? Poor suckers didn’t know what they were getting in for like those who fall for the ‘buth tikak kaala yanna ko” invite at the frangipani palace?

    Just a couple of points for now.

    Violence itself may not always be needed, just the THREAT of violence. (There are other ways of ‘persuading’ people NOT to protest. Our present forces are learning and getting better at the dark arts.)

    MR himself may grow old but there is a hungry pack of dogs around him waiting for their turn. When the time comes, we may even see dog eating dog.

    A very good analysis. “The law will become a Rajapaksa-tool. As kinship and political allegiance become increasingly relevant in the private sector, brain drain will intensify. Internally Sri Lanka will become a Rajapaksa fiefdom internally and a Chinese fiefdom externally”. This is already in existence. Bensen

    Excellent analysis Tisaranee.

    Sarath N Silva not only saved MARA but also went against his felloit seek the
    judges and went against 13A of the Indo – Lanka agreement by that the North and East Can not be joined.

    Now that he has come clean on legally saving MARA and expressing his view openly about the elgibility of MARA contesting the 3rd term, he has a moral duty to come clean on annexing the North and East judgement he gave.

    I am sure he together with other judges involved will come clean for better SL – HINDIA bilateral relations. This will also give HINDIA due respect within Asia . That in turn will result in peace and unity within South Asia.

    HINDIA implemented Srima – Shastri Pact without much fuss.
    Does HINDIA has the moral courage to make SL implement the Rajiva – JR agreement. If can not will
    it seek the help of IC ? It is upto MODI to sort out these before any visit to SL to make MARA win.

    Mr V Anandasagaree says the EU court decision is a shot in the arm for the LTTE both local and overseas.

    And he is not the JHU Leader … Is he ….

    Early Election now is a must to ensure Rajapaksa gets the chance to provide security and harmony for the great majority in the country for at least another 6 years.

    Even Meryn declaring openly in the media that there is no point of him staying in the Govt without doing anything, and he is in constant touch with Ravi Karunanayaka and his ex Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe,it certainly a reminder that not all is hunky dory in the UPFA, SLFP faction

    And when the Opposition heavies in the Media like Ms T says PM D M Jayaratna is is in Chandrika’s hand bag it is real time intelligence.

    Therefore it is a better than even money that the UNP may lose the battle but win the war on behalf of the TNA GTF Alliance…..

    And Ranil may become the PM sooner than later, even without demolishing the Presidency.

    That is why the President must be there to protect the country, the Armed Forces and the poor inhabitants in that order…..

      Mara will win if he takes the entire BBS clan to Nandikadal and get rid of them.
      Why don’t you suggest it to your Boss Gota.
      He will get an enormous kick out of it since he loves the act.

      NB – Will you be still around to write after the elections Lorenzo?
      Why I am asking is that Mara and his cronies will be gone forever from their political life.

      Right after the war Mara could only get 56% and that was with the war winning euphoria, things have changed heck of a lot since.
      His Two 3rd wasn’t people’s mandate, it has been robed in the parliament. The end is inevitable after all no regime should be in power for 20 years. This is same for the UNP and others too.

We are allowed to have meetings all over India and campaign, how are you going to have another Nanthikadal.

      Hi Fathi, Nanthikadal victory cannot said as victory or victory for MR as it was only a genocide in the country. Fathima darling I don’t understand as to why you think the tamils should be exterminated as Nanthikadal. If you think so you kill muslims like you. Please try to understand the history and do not be stupid woman behind your purdah.

      Sinhalease became the ever first terrorists in South East Asia under the guidance of Late.Mr.SWRD Bandaranaike. Thereafter how many massacres of tamil women, men and children were done by sinhala terrorists and their govenments. Could you please study the killings and massacres of Sinhala thugs and the sinhala govts since 1958. If you are a geniune and reasonable person, could you please publish a time line of Sinhala terrorists attacks on minorities from 1958 to 2014.

      You little idiots know nothing of the actual history try to write something to publish your bloody name and wasting yours and others time. I challange you to the details of massacres of minoritis in Srilanka since 1958. Go ahead honey.

    There will be soon a day Tisaranee publicly apologizing for hers “UPFA” election propaganda of “LTTE” bashing. It is too late for her to realize that her LTTE bashing has ended up that after 30 years of election preparation Ranil now does not want election. She now, sees that is back firing. Now her heroes are JVP terrorist, Chief Jester Silva and Athuraliye. Come on man! Is there a value or a place in average man’s politics for these guys’ talks? Such a desperate situation – not to leave any stone turned? Is it how these idols or the so called Sinhala Intellectuals, from 1948, promoting and producing star candidates in Sinhala political sky? Is there no limit which crooks’ words can be honored in Sinhala politics? Then what about these guys popularity seeking of the so called “PUBLIC APOLOGY”? Is Tisaranee saying Athuralie has better legal knowledge than Shiranee? Isn’t now, Athuraliye is repeating Hakeem’s Uva election slogan. Didn’t Hakeem say these words to cheat the Muslim voters in Uva? Where are these guys, Hakeem and Athuralie? Aren’t they working with the Royal Government for the next election, which Ranil feel like throwing up when he hear it? What these Sinhala Idiots or the intellectual using the Kings government’s election propaganda words as their slogan too. Are they too secretly receiving payments from the Royal government?
    Did these guys have Athuraliye and CJ Silva when DS set the example of taking the law as a tool to suppress minorities’ rights to vote? Leaving it aside, Tissaranee is now writing paragraph after paragraph to expose King’s vote rigging. Come on man. When writing on a public forum doesn’t someone have to have at least 1% sincerity? Isn’t it utter shame, after them seeing 30 years of Ranil’s defeats, now saying they did not ask for election? If they don’t want elections, why they can keep quiet and let King bring an election, and with the name of LTTE he reappoints himself as the EP again? What is the big deal here? Can they take days off from the LTTE bashing and come back when Ranil thinks he ready for elation? Is this election is to put the people life in order or is it fight with whether Ranil’s horoscope reader or Kings horoscope leader has more space to play around. Why the Ranil and the gang, if they are for the people, if they have a reason to condemn the Kings government, if they are really like democratic norms and not to fool peoples using the opportunities or the LTTE bashings, now they jump into the first chance to contest the government? If the people, now do not have the guts for an election why is this game of LTTE bashing on the forums? Why these Sinhala intellectual cannot take few days off from public forum and eat the free rice from Queen Srima, the princess Chandrika’s mom?

    In Tamil they say “Koluthina Vaana Kattai”. That is the remaining of the “rocket fire works” after it is fired once. Those days, in the North they fire these a lot in the celebration nights. The kids watch them with astonishments, when these shoot into the sky during the night with fire, and vanishes without trace. The next morning, the reminders will be left all over the places. Kids pick them up and throw them in to the sky to re-launch them. After the EU court’s verdict Chandriaka reappears to be a better “fired rocket” than Ranil? The question is will it shoot again? Many Sinhala intellectual has already have written extensive analysis saying this time it is not LTTE is appointing the King, but it is the EU court which has already appointed King as the EP. What pity souls (if not they the sole of the unscrupulous Lankan politicians) are these so called Sinhala intellectuals. Their so called “Sinhala Buddhist” may have something better to think or do than these pities themselves. I wonder if they walk on the Colombo roads, they are dressed up or shamelessly naked, to write these type of analysis (Blaming the European court to de-ban LTTE in Europe so that they couldn’t do electioneering in Lanka).

    MR loosing the election will be sucidal to the Dynasty. If the news
    of 18th Oct. by Lankanewsweb is correct as below, Mahinda will get
    85% on the basis Mugabe got 99% and Myanmmar 90%. So silly Lanka had it!!

    The CW will be tight-lipped, the EU and USA cannot rise against the
    “Democracy” of MR any further than now.

    “SLFP national organizer Basil Rajapaksa addressed the meeting after him, and said the presidential election would be held soon, and described how it would be won. The SLFP electoral organizers, in a crestfallen manner, listened to his speech and did not applaude him. After his speech, the president asked the electoral organizers to express their views. For about 15 minutes, they remained silent, and an angry president asked, “What the hell? What for this meeting was convened?”

    Waiting for about 20 minutes, he began his speech in a very angry tone, and said, “Some say about computer jilmarts now. They say about using state powers. I know how to win by anyhow. I have more experience than anyone else at this meeting on how to do elections. I have done elections for more than 40 years. I do not contest to lose. With or without anyone’s support, I will win my election.”

    Thisaranee, good observation and thank you for another enlightening article.

    However I may differ slightly on the siblings coming into power because of the tyrannical rule of this government will see their end soon, The Marcos’s the Suhartos, the Gaddafi’s, the Idi Amin’s behavioural patterns have been very similar to the Rajapakse’s. With the exception of the Middle Eastern dictator’s who lasted for 35-40 yrs the Asian dictators lasted for 20-25 years during an era without the influence of Social Media. With the advent of social media this government is getting exposed all over and the resentment and bitterness of the public is gradually emerging.

    This is all apart from the growing resentment that is building up within his coalition and the SLFP. If the Uva or Southern Province elections are anything to go by, the writing is clearly on the wall for the Rajapakse dynasty and their tenure will come to an end during the middle of his 3rd term if he manages to swing it. He is digging not only his grave but but his entire family’s grave politically. If he unleashes violence to counter such an uprising which he and his brothers are fully capable of, then he will certainly dig his grave and for the mortal remains of his family. The brothers Basil and Gotabaya will take-off to the US with their loot and their false patriotism. Whilst the misled children will be left to face the wrath and humiliation from the public.

    ” No one wants an early presidential election, except the Rajapaksas. “

    Aren’t we glad that we have ‘elected’ “Tisaranee Gunasekara” to represent our views, without ever having consulted us. One compelling reason to time an election is when the incumbent believes he has has the best chance of winning, and NOT when the opposition demands for one. Another is when the opposition is seen to be least trustworthy by the electorate as it is today, after RW’s visit to London to hobnob with David Cameron and the LTTE rump.

      Ram, You seemed to be an idiot writing for the sake of writing something against LTTE and to carry the balls of MR and GOTA.

      1.Ranil has not met any LTTE members in the UK.
      2.LTTE does not exist in the UK and more than 50% of the Tamil diaspora supports MR or GOTA to gain benefits when they visit Srilanka.
      3.For your information, LTTE does not exist in Srilanka.
      4.It is a delussion of cowardish majority sinhalese that the tigers will come back.
      5.The population of Northern province is 1.5 million, the total number of GOTA’s armies present in the NP is 150,000. This means every 10 civilian tamils are checked by one army. This system never in world exist except in Srilanka.

      6.Do you or GOTA think that Tamils in the North has super powers to regroup Tigers even after 10 civilians were guarded by one armed army.
      7.LTTE are not terrorits at any time. They are freedom fighters after several massacres of tamil community since 1958.
      8.Sinhala hooligans and SWRD govt became the ever first terrorists since 1958 in South east asia.
      9. LTTE were banned as terrorists with the careful planning of India and Mahinda. The tigers were blamed for the murders Rajiv Gandhi and Rajan Kadirgarmer and India and Srilanka put pressure on on UK,USA and European countries to make LTTE as a terrorists organisation.
      10.For our information, LTTE or V.Prabaharan were not aware of Rajiv’s murder. Mr.Suppiramaniaswamy and Senior members of RAW knew this. Suppiramaniaswamy was aware of this murder plan and the real indians involved, and he was very scared of this knowledge and due to the weaknesses of Pirabaharan, Suppiramaniaswamy blamed Pirabaharan. You can chek this with RAW of India.

      11.Rajan Kadirgarmer was murdered by Sri lankan army personal on the instruction of the then Prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa. If you read everything about Kadirgarmer’s murder you will realise that your Mahinda was the murderer.

      So My dear you are supporting the attrocious animalistic cold blooded terrorists Mahinda and the Sinhala Buddhists. It is a disgrace for the religion Buddhism and justify the murders in the name of SINHALA BUDDHISTS.

      Very soon all these facts will come to light. The entire SINHALA BUDDHIST POPULATION will be banned as the CRUELIST TERRORISTS in the world.

        I am so relieved to be reassured that the LTTE does NOT exist. Yet, it funded a legal challenge in Holland and won partially, and the funds that exist in multiple bank accounts must be orphans. Yet, we know for certain that a claimant will appear before long. The fact that Fr Emmanuel has changed his cassock does not mean that he has changed his spots or should I say stripes. There are multiple others like him both in the UK and Sri Lanka. JBS Jeyaraj has written extensively about the LTTE and it’s proxy, the TNA in Sri Lanka.

        IF the LTTE did NOT exist, it would madness to underwrite a large military presence in the North. I am sure you are NOT suggesting that Gotabhaya belongs in that category. The ONE thing that Gotabhaya proved was that the LTTE terrorists did NOT have superpowers even though the UK, US and others attempted to convince him and his brother on the INVINCIBILITY of the LTTE terrorists. There are those who still believe that murderous Prabhakaran is alive, and anyone trying to convince them otherwise would be wasting their breath.

        You must also be far too young to remember the LTTE atrocities which are NOTHING if NOT terrorist, from the murder of the popular Mayor of Jaffna, Duraiyappa onwards to the bombing of the central bank via the massacres of civilians in mosques, temples and suckling babies at mothers’ breasts in villages. The LTTE were banned in various countries for this reason alone.

        The attempt to whitewash the murders of Rajiv G. and Rajan K. do not wash.

          Hi Ram, Thanks for your aggreeing that Ranil has not met any LTTE in London.
          I never support LTTE in my life nor contributed a penny to them at any time. I do not want disagree with you about LTTE’s killing of lot of innocent Tamils, Tamil Educationists particularly Dr.Neelan Thirichelvam. I was deadly against their killing of Tamil MPs like Yogendran and Amirthalingam. I am fully aware of all the killings and obnoxious rules and regulations LTTE implementd in Vanni. I do not understand why people are supporting another cold blooded terrorists MR,GOTA,Fonseka,BBS and Sinhala Buddhists. Gota and MR now thrives on LTTE’s wealth brought from Vanni and KP’s foreign collections. Where in the world one army perssonal, fully armed with modern weapons and aminutions is engaged to check 10 civilians. Virtually the Sinhala Govt. has divided the country as Northern Province is seperately ruled by Tamils. Do you know the lot of eyewashes during the last three days of MR’s trip to Jaffna. Now again they stopped the foreign passport holders going to Northern Province.
          Hi Ram, What is happening. You may be a sinhalese or Tamil or Muslim. It does not matter. You are an ordinary human being.
          Could you please think of the past as to who started all these terrorisms. You don’t like to blame the actual terrorists. Ruling like this will not go for ever. How many thugs are employed as ministers? Utter shame, how many ministers and deputy ministers are in Srilanka? Do they have any powers. Mind you GOTA did not win the war. As you said, if the LTTE leader VL is alive, it might be due to GOTA’s mercy and plan. Lot of ordinary people in vanni feel that It was GOTA who helped VP to escape. Even Fonseka confirmed this. MR and GOTA enjoy the wealth of tigers with the help of VP and KP.
          It is an absolute truth that majority of the population in NP hate LTTE and VP. Almost all Vanni population are very angry with VP that he had cheated them even after using them as human shield to safeguard him.

          If the srilankan Govt genuinely deal with the tamil community problems ( of course we don’t need India to poke their nose) 100% tamil poulation in the North and East will support the Govt. No one likes to divide the country.

          Have you listened to MR’s talks. He undermined tamils and he says that the sinhalese feel that the tamils lost the war and tamils have no rights as first class citizens in Srilanka.

          We in the NP love to live with ordinary Sinhala population if they are prepared to accept that we are also Srilankan Citizen and enjoy all the rights. Tamils should not be ridiculed or cheat by the Srilankan Regime.

          We tamils are prepared to live them. Are they prepared? This is a big question. Please do not think that tamils are inferior to any one in the world.

          I don’t like India to interfere or the current regime need not discuss with TNA or any Tamil parites to make the tamils in the country to live with pride. Obviously Tamils will ignore TNA or Congress and support the Govt. Will this happen?

    Only thing left to do if for the opposition (any opposition- SLFP included) to cajole the ruling party to become partial guardians of Sri Lanka- they can become the Kings (we are grateful for the Rajapkse input so far, but are worried that the same Rajapakse mindset that united the country comes with too many superlatives – we are merely Lanka, for god’s sake!).

    With Rajapakse and potential successors having about 15% of country entitlement, the rest of the country will be saved from wanton capitalism designed for huge land-masses e.g. USA and China. Before Sri Lanka sinks into the ocean with all the skyscrapers and too many feet of tourists, Sri Lanka needs to have an 85% mature and grounded reality governing her pertaining to her historical and cultural heritage.

    We need to re-balance out, and bring the city-life to the village and not vice versa. City life cannot come from extraneous entities, but be formed from within the natural structure of the heartland heritage.
    Villages should remain villages, and not have the cost of the city life drain the recourses out of them and be restructured to hold up the cities.

    No more of the never ending sequence of development upon development related to the variability of foreign currency, such that our fragile landmass will lose all vestiges to uniqueness of civilization.

    TG:

    You are an intelligent individual and I am surprised you are indulging in speculative hypothesis. MRs future will be decided after January when UNHCR delivers it verdict. Lifting the ban on LTTE is an ominous sign and a warning to GOSL that the EU means business.
    After January sanctions will be imposed and with that MRs fate will be sealed.
    The 20 million RACISTs will have to chose between sticking with MR or living in poverty. Imposing sanctions is easy but removing it will take a long time and the sufferers will be the poor lot but from past evidence it is obvious they will be prepared to undergo any hardship to achieve their goal of Ethnic Cleansing.

    Nothing in Srilanka will stop of Mahinda winning the next Presidential election. MR will be the next president and he and his family will rule the country for another decade or more. The consequences of this will be disastrous for the majority race. Minorities will not affect as they would be suppressed and oppressed as usual by the current regime. There will be lot of problems among Sinhala Buddhists and there will lot of killings and death among them. Neither BBS Theros nor Gota will stop this as the war among the Sinhalese majority. The seeds have already sown by Gota & co to destroy themselves and the plants will grow healthily during the next regime of Rajapakas and kill most of the Rajapaksas clan within the next decade. There will be lot of unrests all over in the country and the Sinhala majority may start realising that they themselves are the real terrorists killing themselves but blaming others. This fate cannot be stopped by any international forces, China or India.

    Hi Muniandy, I am not an astroledger. What happened to Idi Amin, Col.Gadaffi, and Sadam Hussein? These people are a few among the cold blooded terrorist dictators. The foolish Sinhalese will definitely elect MR as the president or MR will somehow or other he will rigg the ballots and will get more votes. He knows very well of his fate in case if he is elected as the president. All the terrorist sinhalese know what would happen if MR loose. So 99% of the Sinhala buddhists of Srilanka will vote for MR. Well let see what happen?
