Maithri Supporters To Contest From UNP: UPFA Facing Another Blow

Discussions took place on Friday between the UNP and a group of ex – UPFA MPs over contesting as a common front at the Parliamentary elections.

Patalie Champika Ranawaka, Rajitha Senaratne, M.K.D.S. Gunawardena, Arjuna Ranatunga and several other ex – MPs of the UPFA took part in the discussions.

They discussed the possibility of joining the UNP as a political front for “good governance”. Ranawaka, a few days ago, renamed his political party as the “United Front for Good Governance”.

However, they will enter into an electoral pact with the UNP to contest under the symbol ‘elephant’ from the UNP list.

Some of the former Parliamentarians involved in the discussions have already signed nomination papers to contest from the UPFA.

    Will Rajitha join UNP? I watched a video of him scolding Ranil after presidential election and now he wants to contest from UNP?

    God bless this country

      Ash89fb – So did MS. He scolded MR until last week and today he is a
      great buddy of MR. after his parties clipped his wings. This is Sri Lankan politics, man. UNP has a chance of winning the polls but not under Ranil as the sole organizer. If an experienced committee takes over the propaganda work, with stalwarts like Jayasuriya, Ravi and Premadasa, putting in their best,then, there is a chance but they got to be sceptical about the new comers as they could cross over to be in the majority side after the results are announced. They will never be in the opposition as most of them enjoyed the perks of being ministers.
      Its wise to get into electoral pacts with smaller parties instead, not taking them in as UNP candidates. UNP learnt a bitter lesson of mass crossover not long ago and should not allow a repeat.

      TNA and probably JVP cannot be bought over but rest of the smaller parties can be bought over as there is plenty of ill gotten money,
      floating in the country.

      Muslims in Beruwala will not vote for SLFP at all. So rajitha has to contest from UNP

        He already knows that in his area the Muslims won’t vote him if he remains in UPFA. That’s why he is contesting from UNP.

    Way to go!

    Why do Mystinking3 January 8 voters sound so desperate?

    Can’t they see the ELEPHANT in front of them?

    Come August 17, Vote UNP.

    Let Mara, the Thief/Murderer/Rapist, and the invertebrate Mystinking3 Sirisena both go home.

    Isn’t that justice enough?

      RE: Maithri Supporters To Contest From UNP: UPFA Facing Another Blow

      “However, they will enter into an electoral pact with the UNP to contest under the symbol ‘elephant’ from the UNP list.”

      Elephant is a good respectable Symbol with positive Attributes.

      Gaja (a -Sanskrit word for elephant) is one of the significant animals finding references in Hindu scriptures and Buddhist and Jain texts. In general, a gaja personifies a number of positive attributes, including abundance, fertility and richness; boldness and strength; and wisdom and royalty. In European Portuguese, it means “physically attractive female”; its origin in the Portuguese language can be related to a personification of fertility, as mentioned.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaja

      UPFA Should elect, the Donkey, as its symbol. Suggestion below. That way all the donkeys of average IQ of 65 can recognize the symbol and vote for the traitors and crooks.

    THROW SIRISENA WITH MAHINDA INTO A PIT!!!
    VOTE UNP AND MAKE RANIL WICKRAMASINGHE AS PRIME MINISTER! THATS THE ONLY AVAILABLE OPTION TO SAVE THE COUNTRY! TAKE THIS MESSAGE TO SINHALA RACIST FOOLS WHO STILL WANT TO LICK SOMEONE’S SOMETHING.

      Clearly from your comment, it is quite easy to discern who the ‘racist fool’ is. If you had used the word ‘extremist sinhalese’, I would concur with your statement.

      Did you know that you also find ‘extremist tamil’, ‘extremist muslim’, ‘extremist white’ people as well amongst other types of extremists?

      You’re just a racist, with a low brain capacity. Would your brain be able to handle it, if I told you that the majority of the Sinhalese people hate him?

      Since you seem to be a frog in the well, you fail to realise that when MR was in power all state media was under his spell. This meant that since rural areas only received ITN, Rupavahini, the rural folk believed everything on TV.

      Are you surprised that the majority of human beings on earth believe everything they see on TV? Obviously you weren’t born yesterday.

      Grow up you frog

      you call Sinhalese racist “fools”. Tamil national alliance, Muslim congress, makkkal congress, tamil alliance of Mano,digambaran
      Rajakrisnan. Are’nt they racist ? Sinhalese are not racist. but they are fools. they divide and half support UNP with the above parties.
      They must unite and support Mihinda to show these racist a lesson.
      Then you can call them racist

      Hi Shamil – You forgot that you are licking RW’s back – Tell me any good thing Ranil had done to this country – For me he is a guy who uses others to do his dirty work and kick their asses after – he is a bugger who let others to rob – not once or twice – on several occasion he had done the same – now even no difference – just see how much he is trying to cover CB Governor – surely he knows that he is the hand behind this scam and dead scared – how many times he has publicly said – Hey look here !! that one or this one did these wrong things then what is wrong in we doing the same — Can you expect these kind of attitude from a Leader – Bet my word Ranil / Mangala / Ravi kind of people will ruin this country if selected as leaders – simply because they are run by their egos , and they do not feel the pulse of the majority voters of this country – Every time Ranil opens his mouth in public he losses at least 100 votes – Kick Ranil and his white color roughs out – then UNP will have a chance

      “TAKE THIS MESSAGE TO SINHALA RACIST FOOLS WHO STILL WANT TO LICK SOMEONE’S SOMETHING.”

      There are a lot of errors here, and need corrections.

      “95% of the solution identifying the problem” – Bertrand Russel.

      To begin with not all Sinhala are racists. Not all Sinhala are fools either. This is true for Tamils, Muslims, Malays, Burghers as well. Thre may be small fractions who are racists and fools.

      Remember 3.8 million Sinhala Buddhists Voted for Maitripala Sirisena, who became a Traitor all of them, along with the 2.4 million non-Sinhala Buddhists, comprising 6.2 million voters.

      More than a racism problem, Sri Lanka has an IQ Problem. The Average IQ of Sri Lanka comprising mostly Para who came from India is 79. The Average IQ of India is 81. while that of Singapore, South Korea and Japan are 108, 106 and 105 respectively.

    Good move… UPFA is sitting on egges that will not hatch.

    Today I saw in Kandy Town at D.S. Senanayake Veediya a long time UPFA organisers’ office was decorated in green (UNP) and a good gathering… I have seen and I believe its true to what its said in this CT article.

    All must join together with UNP to Expel all corrupted people who contest from UPFA.

    Every voter must be wise not to caste their votes to Mahinda and his henchmen who has been licking his ……… since he was horrendously defeated in presidential election.

    Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe and his professional team will guide our country towards prosperity soon.

    Buruwansa, Naaki Wasu, Buruu Dinesh and many more must be expel from political arena on 17th of August in 2015.

    I sometimes do not not get it, when you go down the comments, most of it or almost all of them almost all the time I should say , one group or other Character assassinating Mahinda , Ranil or Siri Sena ,or its full of bigotry ,hate speech against the Sinhalese,Tamils or Muslims.

    This shows how much of programming the one tract mindsets of our dear people have gone through , no easy way to undo that mindset I tell you.

    Why can not people instead focus what kind of change we need ,promote the kind of Politicians who need to be in and doing the change , expose what the past governments ,politicians have neglect to envisage in the needs of people and country .

    I sadly see Amerasiri(no offense) native Vedah and Ben Hurling leading to lazy writing , please keep up the burning comments without you guys normal facts and no mercy comments this place is becoming all dull ,with sunamas leelas ,(fukshiam seems dead .) and gunas and Kiri bos all taking the stage ,seems like its turning to a monotonous boring play.

    we need fire ,real fire.

    UNP and Ranil is forging ahead towards victory and witin thenext two days more will join the bandwagon. Looks like MR ‘s fortunes are dwindling every day. Want be surprised if Akila K from the UNP polls more votes than MR in the Kurunegala district. Let us wait watch the matches to unfold.

    Amerasiri beg to differ. The donkey has been proven smart at times ,esp when it got the two legged donkeys to throw stones into the well by braying .(am sure you know story ,some of our two legged donkeys are not even capable of carrying the book loads on their backs leaving alone basic common sense ,so let us leave the poor donkey out- LOL>!

    The Treasure house that guaranteed security financially to a segment of Politicians and also narrow mindset of people in the Country to elect the proxies of the treasure house ,may have to think again carefully before they throw in their vote , or people who are unaware should be informed ,

    The treasure house just vaporized $3 trillion worth of investor wealth, all within a month.

    99% of those investors are domestic .

    The Treasure house economy is domestic consumption depended , not export or investment any more.

    There are 90 million stock investors.

    Right now their only concern (although the market seem to have bounced back for now)is how to make the 90 million people not panic ,and get them to go on spending in the market.
    ——————————————————-
    How come People here never questions the Politicians when elections get closer now a days ?

    Where are the manifestos of the parties concerned ?

    What and when will they all be fulfilled ?

    Do we need Port city /Highways /Extra airports/ flashy exorbitant townships?

    do our segment of tourists come to see flashy townships and cities from 1st worlds? doe not make sense to me!!

    Most of them will either come for our beautiful beaches, highlands scenic viewing ,or to view our ancient ruins .

    How come we are continuing to abandon our indigenous products, our rich agriculture, and most importantly continuing to export and exploit with low wages and no pension or retirement hope one of most valuable assets the manpower and that too mostly skilled ,we are in severe shortage here local to even meet simple needs of work .

    If People in this country really have understood the importance of building this nation and preparing it for the future generation , they better ask the Politicians to shut up , we do not need to hear their verbal diarrhea ,screaming over loudspeakers and gathering mass crowds over a packet of rice and a bottle of Alcohol, the cost of which too we the people will ultimately have to bare the burden .

    People you need to start grilling these politicians , demand to provide in their manifesto what they are offering and most importantly how the financing is done for it ,not at the cost of our environment and whole sale of our Country .

        Srinath

        “Bring back slums”

        Care for the downtrodden not the real estate speculators.

        “Bring back pavement hawkers”

        Good, they too need to eke out a honest living and bring colour, noise and vibrancy to the city, otherwise the city will become another isolated cemetary.

        “Bring back mafia”

        They are kicking and screaming, making every effort to bring back rejected Mafia Don Hambantota Corleone.

        “Bring back bheeshanaya”

        You mean the Southern one. You will not be disappointed, you will have one if you bring back Don Hambantota Corleone, may be later if not sooner.

        “Bring back begging to west”

        When did you stop begging irrespective of who the benefactor is, from USA, UK, EU, Japan, ……… China even a lot from India.

    Why do we need Candidates who Promise to support a Party or Individual rather than Promise to Work for the Good of the Country?

    Aren’t they putting the Cart before the Horse?
    Haven’t they lost the Plot?
    Aren’t Party Politics the Antithesis of ‘Yahapalanaya’ or Good Government?

    Why don’t these Contenders contest as Independents, and tell the Voters How they would Develop the Country and its People, rather than Promise to support a Political Party that is not really Sure what its Priorities are?
    They could then form a Government of Like Minded people and Work for the Good of all Sri Lankans, in the North, South, East and West!

    UPFA drop outs – if you all have real concern for this country then contest as independent candidates and prove your worth to your electorates and come to parliment – then you all can play a crucial role in preventing any major player in the Parliament taking wrong decisions

    You all are now running behind Ranil and accusing MR for wrong doings – what the heck you all were doing when you all were under MR – do not try to show that you all are clean – if at all you all are clean – it may not be due to your principals but you may not have the opportunity to rob and earn

    A real politico with clean conscious will not run after Ranil because Ranil is also not a clean saint – you all are running after Ranil because that is the only chance of grabbing a Minister post of some sort – if Ranil wins. – If Ranil losses you all will find some excuse to praise MR and will do everything under the sun to grab a Min post – The voters should teach a goo lesson to these rascals
