Maithri Holds Secret Talks To Make Premajayanth PM

Colombo Telegraph is now in a position to reveal that President Maithripala Sirisena has held negotiations with UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayanth to make him the Prime Minister if the party secures victory at the Parliamentary election.

MaitreIn the face of a UPFA defeat, Premajayanth will be appointed as the Leader of the Opposition.

That will shut out former President Mahinda Rajapaksa who is contesting the election as the District Leader of Kurunegala on the UPFA ticket.

Speaking of the UPFA nominations, President Sirisena said last week that there were several seniors of the UPFA who could be appointed as the Prime Minister.

Premajayanth was instrumental in getting nomination for the former President to contest from the UPFA.

    Would someone care to explain how CT came upon this information?
    If this is true, it would be excellent as it could cause further stress on Mahinda’s faction in the UPFA but I still refuse to believe this unless the source of the information is revealed.
    I believe susil premajayantha is a worthless worm but he is the lesser of two evils compared to MR.
    I however do question Susil’s leadership capabilities.

      I hate Susil the way he expresses his views. Mostly his sound to be provocative. That would not make him a leader. We must not appoint him even to sweep the Maradana road actually. We hate MR even more but we must not replace him with an idiot such as Susil.

        Yes lately the bugger susil was refering to have good exp just becasue he took part in a two week training at Harward regarding const changes to a prevailing system… ? This sounded that the bugger felt be proud to have even seen Harward… anyways, jst having taken part to a short training .. can any politician insist to claim greater knowledge on the issue ? In the same time, he is not neutral to say – that all others remain onthe list have all qualifications to become the PM. As a lawlyer he should be fair to everyone.

        I do not think that Susil is a gentleman. Not only him, there is no gentleman in UPFA as of now. Do you remember he yelled at a media personnel recently?

        I hope that MR has a “file” of Susil. That was why he struggled so much to get nomination for MR.

        This show you know sweet FA about our constitution or the basics of our democracy. President Maithripala Sirisena, Leader of the SLFP has the legal authority to appoint the PM (or leader of the opposition) as he so pleases. I hope the report is true and The President has gone up a notch in my esteem.

          Have you rewritten our constitution recently. From what I read last time the President has the authority to appoint the PM,not at his discretion but the person he believes command the support of the majority in the parliament.If by any chance he makes the wrong choice it will be similar to his previous choice RW a lame duck PM.
          The president may very well have had discussions with Susil but I’m sure he is not foolish enough to commit Harakiri.
          The President must be wondering by now, I was foolish enough to fall for CBK’s bait hook line and sinker but nobody even looks at my bait!!

      Who made any effort to become a leader of UPFA or SLFP
      during the last ten years ? All the worms sang hosanna
      to MARA and his family for survival. Will anyone look
      at Tissa as an alternative to Ranil or Sajith simply
      because he was the general sec of the party ? People
      have a picture in their minds about leaderships that
      they are looking for in a party !Never in the history
      of our politics, leaders were harassed as thieves as
      now and who are they ? Kurunegala district has a
      historic opportunity to tell the world who they are
      and what they stand for ! UPFA tried to label UNP
      as traitors without proof in the whole of MARA’s
      leadership and UNP called UPFA thieves and took them
      to courts ! Let the people decide it again even without
      waiting for court justice!

      If this is true,its not surprising at all. Sirisena will sell his mother at this moment to keep Mahinda out of Parliament.
      If Susil falls for this on the otherhand, it will not be second to Sirisena falling in the CBK trap.
      Even if it is true, it is a feeble attempt.

    This is another misleading report by CT.,the first being that SLFP/UPFA
    senior stalwarts,having a secret meeting with the President,which never
    took place. You may want to create stories to fill your columns with pro. and anti comments but people are concerned about the future form of Govt.,they are going to get. How on earth this could happen as President is well aware that all his recent embarrassment was caused by Susil Premajayantha, who connived with Yapa and MR Clan to throw him out of the party and if 2/3 majority made available, he to be thrown out of president’s position against a no confidence motion,if they win the election , which of course,is doubtful

    Unless, the president did his math and found that UNP/coalition has a
    good chance of winning the election with the support of minorities and JVP eating into MR votes, as party comes first for the president as well.

    MS wants anyone other than MR, in the event of UPFA getting a majority,
    to be PM.
    This is correct, to avoid a disaster if MR becomes PM – the nation would be back to the old days of corrupt military despotism.

    Good reporters do not unnecessarily reveal their sources.

    If CT reports this piece of news, then take it as true if you trust CT. If you do not trust CT, then do not believe the story.

    Do not ask for sources because there must be good reason why CT did not say how it came across this story.

    For myself, CT has been responsible in its reporting, and I believe CT on the strength of CT’s track record.

      Reporter – You must be a CT reporter. so, this decision is a follow
      up of the meeting, supposed to have taken place between SLFP/UPFA
      seniors, and the president ,as reported by CT, couple of days back.
      This meeting never took place and none of SL newspapers carried this
      news and today’s news.

      If Susil Premjayantha is selected PM, he will be a puppet PM and MR
      will run the show. Is this what the president expect it to happen so
      that he can run the country through a mediator.

      Can any one believe this story of yours.

        Matilda, you are dead right.
        I dont know why CT does so.
        DJ is the most abusive among so called edcuated people.
        His has been fallen to the levels of Wimal Buruwa.
        Nobody respect DJ any further.
        Not even students in CMBO uni would see it right the bugger being entwined to Rajapakahe sometimes for no reasons. We need psychologists and neurologists to screen the brain cells of DJ as to why the bugger became an another Mervin OF kelaniya. If his father knew all these- how would he have been after watching the way DJ behaves ?
        We dont have perfect leaders to be elected.
        But people have to agree with less eveils rather than ones that brought the country ot all abusive levels. Rajapalkshes are no worth. They have filled up their pockets by doing all low level politics.
        I wish if the newly elected would create all valauble AMDs to the prevailing system to corner the former president. He deserves to be convicted. His mediation is connected with a greater danger to the country.

      I have to agree with the Reporter. I have noted that CT Web Page comes in two columns. The right side is mainly for posts by CT in a manner of investigative reporting and the left side is for opinion makers of all colors. In the absence of Right to Information, we citizens rely on media, which exposes things risking the lives of media personnel. Until the ban on CT was removed we relied on CT and in my opinion, CT has so far not failed in its duty.

      Check it yourself Shamil, either you are sick or born fool to see it this way. I really dont thnk when listening to MS s speeches, he cover all the facets actually, SO such a leader to be looked down upon this way is not acceptable. Pleae read more and try to correct yourself – else, the curse will lead you to hell. MR is a failure by education. He cant even hold a speech not attacking anyone. Remember the days he resounded, ” he can 3 times – showing the products as his 3 sons “. That abusive MR had been would never be seen neither of the current leaders: They just think before using the wording. They are very thoughtful men. They respect the rights .. basic right. But Rjaapkshe would never do things right. He grabed the creidt for war victory. Actually how could that be a victory by attacking own country men. It was just terror eliemination, but not by his magical powers. All collective forces and the past leaders worked on that.. he only won the relay race – by painting it all wrong. No whatsowever respect were given previous presidents or previous men in Forces. No, just ated the full cake not sharing to anyone. That come on him now as Karma. Today, MR is the most hateful person to over 50% of vote eligibles in the country. Perhaps it is right to say over 60% hate him for all his stupid and selfish thuggish politics.

    Susil who? the one who got slapped by MR, whom he was hell bent in getting nominations? Now MR would threaten Susil to reject the position or remind Susil of his “FILE”..either way he wsa such a thorn in MS’s skin while the UPFA was having the majorit after the Jan 8th Presidential Elections. MS should NOT trust ANY from the UPPFA…see how many ministers and deputies he appointed would resign…. MS should understand it was the VOTERS who elected him and NOT his party….

    This is a rather pathetic attempt by Sirisena to cause division in the Rajapaksa camp. Susil Premajayantha is a stalwart Mahinda Rajapaksa divotee who was in the forefront of the attempt to bring Mahinda back. This trick should have been attempted prior to the nomination of Mahinda. I think it is too late now.

    However all evidence is pointing towards Mahinda and his criminal cronies lagging far behind in voter sentiment.

    Premajayantha must be harboring hateful thoughts about Mahinda after that severe slapping he got and Maithri could be taking advantage of this incident to create a rift between the two before the elections.

    Good move, in spite of the fact that Premajayantha is a creepy crawler.

    It’s called ‘killing two hyenas with one blow’.

    If that is so it seems president is sure that UPFA /SLFP will win the next general election with a sufficient majority in parliament to form a govt of it’s own though he does not want to show it. Otherwise how can he make Susil PM? I don’t think Mahinda will mind it. Mahinda will retire in glory after having led the party to victory in spite of Sirsena. All’s well that ends well.

      I too have a feeling that Mahinda will lead UPFA to victory at the August 17th elections with absolute majority and then gracefully leave politics altogether allowing one of his confidants to become the Prime Minister.

      Having been the Prime Minister and the all powerful President of Sri Lanka, I do not think he is coveting the PM position again. He may be trying to proof to the Americans and the Indians that he is still the popular leader of Sri Lanka. Once he succeeds in demonstrating this he may simply leave the political scene.

      Sirisena can then sleep peacefully and discard the American stooge Ranil.

    This may be a ploy to throw the cat amongst the pigeons. It could be possible that from now, Susil may develop his own ideas to become the next PM. It may also become his greater objective and dump MR including promoting his image in the process. Who knows what is in store for them both, but what is obvious is that it is still too early to predict the outcome. This ongoing saga may develop further into something more intriguing as time goes by, but we can safely assume the UNFGG party will come out stronger due to these aberrations in the opposing camp.

    SLFP is mass base political Party of National Bourgeois class as head of the represtantative the millions of people last 64 years.

    SLFP was family oriented led by Banadarake family practices of nepotism over more than 60 years.

    We also have to ask what kind of man MS of reasoning should count in the assessment of President ethical and political concept such as justice and injustice OF BEING CHAIRMAN OF SLFP?

    In what way can a diagnosis of injustice by MS UNP-Ranil & CBK or identification of what would reduce or eliminate it be objective?
    Does MS this demand impartiality in some particular sense, such as detachment from one’s own vested interest?

    Reported discussion between MS and Susil Parmajayajnth is may be conspiracies to be split SLFP ongoing unity is the first move.

    MS is man of politics is not that an open, but his politics which more towards back door politics manipulated by financial support funded by Indian -RAW and US-CIA buying MPs for installed another puppet junta in after the election result.
    To understanding the MS the discussion with Susil is never a matter simply our immediate perceptions is concern.

    Understanding inescapably involves of UNP national govt. is THE ISSUE after election back by large part of SLFP MPs which encourage by MS oriented politics of lumpenproletariat Democracy.

    In respect of MS politics has no importance of moral sentiments did not stop him form seeking a NEW UNP REGIME LED BY Ranil Wickrmasinghe nor from insisting that a sense of Chairmen of SLFP wrongdoing be critically examined through reasoned scrutiny to see whether it can be the basis of reasonable condemnation by the public.

    Democracy is ultimately connected with the way of better PEOPLE’S life lives go, not merely UNP with the nature of national govt. surrounding by UNP-REGIME AND MS-CBK LED JUNTA to become a loggerhead turtle.

      Thinker – You may have to think bit more seriously as the media reports
      from mushroom outlets made him a traitor, without knowing what was going on inside SLFP/UPFA, as in fact, he was trying to unite both parties and bring them under his command but it boomeranged against him due to underhand activities carried out by the senior UPFA members without his knowledge and it was too late to rectify.He made a mistake by keeping the pains within himself, without letting the public know and when he blew it off in a public broadcast,it was too late for him as he was cornered by then, to sign the nomination papers.

      He paid the price for it because he did not fortifying himself by
      selecting his confidants, who could stand by him , secretaries of his choice, did not over haul the armed forces and police and weeded off the undesirables and corruptors not apprehended and punished ,as any other world leader would have done on assumption of duty as President. His easy going attitude encouraged his hidden enemies to plot against him.

      Anyway, people know what really happened and the zero president is now turning out to be a hero president and he will stay as the president for next five more years.

    Try asking a broke politician to have the same accusation and see what would happen to him, not trying to com back to politics ,he to breathe in the next breath would be only dream.

    If he wants to become the PM, Susil should first go to a dentist and fix at least his front teeth, which are badly affected, probably by the lies he utters. After all, we do not want a PM who is an ideal ‘BEFORE’ for promoting toothpaste.

    Constitutional provisions have it that the President will appoint as Prime Minister the Member of Parliament who IN HIS OPINION will have the majority support in the House.
    Premadasa chose DB Wijetunga over hot contenders Athulathmudali and Dissanayake.
    Chandrika chose her mother !
    So there is no chance for MR to be appointed PM – especially in view of the President in his Address to the Nation categorically stated that MR will not be given the job in view of many other suitable candidates being available in the ranks of the SLFP.
    So, a vote to “Bring Back Mahinda as Prime Minister” is a vote for a LOST CAUSE.
    This constitutional provision is being totally distorted by the likes of Weerwansa,Dinesh Gunawardena,GL Peiris and now….the loathsome Sarath N.Silva.
    All contesting parties should make the voting public fully aware of this.
