New Prospects For The Opposition

By Laksiri Fernando

Dr. Laksiri Fernando

Dr. Laksiri Fernando

According to the Daily News today (21 November 2014), it is an ‘Election by Proclamation.’ The announcement itself signifies something odd with the procedure. It goes like the following.

“KNOW YE that by virtue of the powers vested in me by paragraph (3A) of Article 31 of the Constitution of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, I, Mahinda Rajapaksa, President, do by this Proclamation, hereby declare my intention of appealing to the people for a mandate to hold office, by election, for a further term.” (My emphasis).

The intention of the President, but not the people has come to the forefront. Otherwise, there are two more years to go for the President who was elected in 2010. In all democratic presidential systems, elections are pre-scheduled. No arbitrary elections by proclamation could be held.

The original sin was something committed by JR Jayewardene when he introduced the 3rd Amendment. It is now enlarged by the 18th Amendment (multiplied by six!), completely eliminating the term limit which is a fundamental cornerstone of any democratic presidential system. This is one reason why the presidential system should go lock, stock and barrel replacing it with a parliamentary model suitable to the 21st century.

Undemocratic Nature 

There are democratic presidential systems and there are undemocratic presidential systems. It is clear as crystal to what category Sri Lanka now belongs. Even in a democratic presidential system (i.e. US), there are structural impediments. The present gridlock in the US as a result of the executive and the legislature belonging to two opposing political parties is not good particularly for a developing country. Obama has to continue even without the confidence of the Congress for two more years. It is questionable whether this is democratic.

MaitreThe undemocratic nature of the presidential system in Sri Lanka is much more profound. Instead of ‘checks and balances,’ the President has checked all the ‘balances.’ The Chief Justice is a complete acolyte checking all the other Supreme Court judges in turn. A cardinal requirement for democracy is ‘Independence of the Judiciary’ which is fundamentally lacking now in Sri Lanka when it comes to constitutional or political decisions.

The distortion in the governing system is not limited to the presidential superstructure. There are flaws underneath at the base. The electoral system is also flawed given the unhealthy preferential voting and the large ‘district-constituencies.’ It is difficult for the voters or the people to influence the MPs, let alone controlling them. A democratic governing system should depend not on one person, elected as the President, but on a broad based representative Parliament, responsive to people’s needs and aspirations.

In a multicultural and a plural society, and to enhance the devolved system of governance, a Second Chamber is also an essential requirement. This is something that the opposition has so far forgotten in their common platform. Devolution also should be meaningful and enhanced. Abolition of the presidential system and the introduction of the 17th Amendment with necessary refinements might be possible within six months. But the new design for a proper system should at least take one year with necessary consultations. I would modestly recommend one year even for the abolition of the presidential system without disillusioning the people like in the past.

Lost Opportunity

Mahinda Rajapaksa could have retired gracefully in two years’ time if not for this hurriedly called election. It is a lost opportunity. There is no people’s mandate or a moral right for him to contest for a third term. Even in China, political office bearers should retire after the age of 68. There are rules governing smooth leadership succession. As a general rule, people should give way to others and pass the baton. It is an archaic tradition in Sri Lanka for many people to hang on to ‘power and position.’ This I have seen in very many places including in universities. Lack of democratic ethos or culture, or insecurity, perhaps is the reason.

Even the legality of a third term for the incumbent was controversial although the Supreme Court has ruled otherwise. After that ruling, it is best for the opposition to accept that ruling whatever the criticisms that we have of that decision or the Supreme Court in general. I am particularly unhappy about the recent JVP position on this matter. I wish they would change. A boycott of election, claiming it to be illegal is not good for the democratic process. It also will help the regime to consolidate its power in the face of the growing opposition which creates considerable opportunities to defeat the third term. What should be exposed is its immorality and undemocratic nature.

Defeating Mahinda Rajapaksa will not be an easy task but it is possible. He is generally credited for defeating the LTTE or terrorism. This will be one of the main election cards. For that matter, Sarath Fonseka also should be credited. If the President is planning to campaign for the third term based on scaremongering of a ‘new Tiger threat’ that would be largely neutralized after the defection of the JHU. The defection of the JHU places both prospects and problems for the opposition. It is however largely positive.

There are unprecedented infrastructure developments in the country under Rajapaksa administration. This cannot be denied. However the economic development in general has been quite uneven both horizontally and vertically. Not only economic deprivation but also rising expectations might go against the government. There are new middle classes not only in the cities but also in the villages that aspire for more opportunities and dislike corruption and nepotism. They also seek more freedom and justice.

Family rule might be the main liability of the President facing this election.

Opportunities

The crystallization of the opposition so far is not enough for a clear victory. It is however still possible. I have been advocating the consolidation of the UNP and a split within the SLFP/UPFA for some time. Of course many others were saying the same. I was saying it for the sake of democracy and a change of government and not for personal reasons. The JHU’s departure from the government is a healthy sign which should be welcomed by everyone. The desertion of the government by individual members also will slowly start with the departure of Gampaha MP, Vasantha Senanayake.

There are speculation that the SLFP General Secretary, Maithripala Sirisena, also will leave the government with some others. I will only be surprised if he doesn’t do that. The SLFP has been virtually hijacked by the Rajapaksa family which might not be tolerated by the faithful sections of the party. Sirisena has been marginalized throughout. What the Prime Minister, D. M. Jayaratne, has stated in Parliament on the 19th cannot be a mistake. Whatever the mistakes, he is a faithful member/leader of the SLFP and a founder member of the party. At least it represents his inner wish. He has said

“We are at present in a hoary situation. An election will be held. When the situation becomes renewed, the Pope will meet a new government and a New President. Not the old President.” (My translation).

Common Candidate?

In these columns, many have been discussing who would be the best common opposition candidate. The discussions started with four credible names: Ven. Sobitha, CBK, Karu Jayasuriya and Ranil Wickremesinghe. Finally the attention focused on the last two, KJ and RW. I was of the opinion that KJ might be the best option for the presidency not because RW is less credible but because the effort is to abolish the presidential system. Added advantage was/is to attract non-UNP voters and political formations.

The main task of RW, as I perceived, might be to contest the parliamentary elections, immediately as necessary, in order that a viable government is formed to abolish the presidential system. It is the parliament after all which can abolish the EP system. The situation perhaps is changed, if Maithripala Sirisena is defecting to the opposition with others. According to some information, his name has been strongly proposed as the common opposition candidate. This is undoubtedly well and good. Whoever is selected by the joint opposition should have the unhesitant support of those who want to make a change and re-establish democracy in the country.

However, I still believe that since the main effort of the opposition’s democracy movement is to abolish the presidential system, the best candidate might be a person like Karu Jayasuriya, although the other two, MS or RW, may have more energy and charisma for election campaigning. Traditional or faithful UNP sections also might feel dissatisfied if a recent defector from the government is selected as the opposition candidate. Otherwise, I obviously have more personal empathy with MS.

My proposition, even under the new circumstances, would be for KJ to be the common presidential candidate, strongly supported by RW, MS and others, and for the latter two to prepare at the same time to form a new UNP-SLFP government. While KJ’s task is to defeat MR, the other two are more pivotal in abolishing the presidential system and bring about a new democratic constitution where all ethnic and religious communities live in peace and harmony. Priority also should be given to the upliftment of the poor and the marginalized.

In my imagination, Ranil Wickremesinghe and Maithripala Sirisena can even be Co-Prime Ministers in a UNP-SLFP coalition. The focus should be on a Parliamentary Government by abolishing the presidential system.

The prophecy of the present Prime Minister, DMJ, will prove to be correct in that sense. The Pope will meet a new President and a new Government in the New Year!

    The corrupt and Greedy Mahinda Rajapaksa Jarapassa family has overplayed its hand, and has struck its own death knell!

    The ENDGAME is in sight.. Lets hope that the SLFP re-groups around Maithripala Sirisena – the common candidate – to defeat the corrupt and criminal and UNEDUCATED Jarapassa family dictatorship and steer Lanka to a new DAWN with the help of the minorities and the pathetic UNP!

      “Mahinda Rajapaksa could have retired gracefully in two years’ time if not for this hurriedly called election”

      You are dead wrong mate! Mahinda Jarapassa could not have retired gracefully with the mountain of corruption that he and his family – brothers, sons, nephews, in laws and cronies like Dhammika Perera the Casino Kingsbury Bling King are involved in.

      These guys need to be taken out lock stock and barrel and prosecuted for looting the people of Lanka. All their ill gotten lands and loot of the Rajapaksa family need to be traced and returned to the country and the Jarapassa brothers and Nivard Cabraal at Central Bank and PBJ in the treasury need to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE, Tried and locked up for all their FINANCIAL CRIMES and land grabbing and environmental destruction in the name of development..

        Dear prof. Laksiri ,

        if the budget is defeated , can the parliament be dissolved ? seeking your advice !

          Dear Srilal,

          Not as advice, but as opinion! To be precise to the question, yes, if the budget is defeated, Parliament can be dissolved but the President is not obliged to do so. Parliamentary traditions are not built into the constitution as it is a presidential system! However, Article 70 (d) says if the appropriation bill is defeated for the second time then the President is obliged to dissolve Parliament. The section is as follows.

          “70 (d) where the President has not dissolved Parliament consequent upon the rejection by Parliament of the Appropriation Bill, the President shall dissolve Parliament if Parliament rejects the next Appropriation Bill.”

          However, Parliament can bring a resolution according to 70 (c) (iv) to dissolve Parliament.

      I want to throw up – VOMIT – when I see MR’s face on posters!

      We, the public of Sri Lanka need to show our CONTEMPT for Mahinda Jarapassa, the illegal Presidential Candidate and his corruption by CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE.

      We need to RIP and deface Mahinda Jarapassa’s posters which are polluting the all roads of the country where ever we see them! THese posters are put up with public money for an illegal election that is massively expensive and NOT what the people want…

      JVP groups and university students should rip off the posters of Mahinda Rajapakse – the illegal Presidential Candidate who has plastered the roads with his posters using PUBLIC FUNDS.

      Premature elections are a huge waste of PUBLIC FUNDS to satisfy the GREED of Dictator Jarapassa and his family.

        Many Sri Lankans feel like you. I am sure however, you will be seeing only MR posters. Like the last time the Rajapakse goons went around and tore up decorations and posters belonging to the opposition. It seemed only one party was running for elections.

    Let me add a short postscript to what I have said in the article. Obviously, political tectonic plates have moved very fast in Sri Lanka more than I have anticipated from a distance of almost 9,000km. Politics is the art of the possible. It is a feasible proposition to have Maithripala Sirisena as the President and Ranil Wickremasinghe as the Prime Minister. I wholeheartedly salute the architects of the proposition.

    Ho, Ho Ho, it looks like the desperados have got all their Christmases at once!

    Maithripala Sirisena (contrary to all Kumar David’s predictions) as the common candidate to defeat Mahinda Rajapaksa? You must be dreaming.

    This is trick played by desperados like Rajva Wijesinha, cousin of Ranil Wickremesinghe, from inside the government.

    Maithripala’s own corruption record (at Kaduwela) will come to light in due course and he has no chance of becoming president. He will have to go back ot Kabithigollawa

      My formula does not and never did place any emphasis on personalities.
      Maithripala, Sobitha, Ranil, Chandrika or any broomstick is good enough.

      MY CAMPAIGN WAS AND IS TO ABOLISH THE EXECUTIVE PRESIDENCY.

      I am a little concerned that those nominating Maithripala have not explicitly (as yet) announced that they will abolish EP; nor have they, as yet, laid out their road map.

        Yes, yes we know.

        Any foolish Sinhalaya who is greedy enough to come forward, so that Sinhalas can be handed over to a weakling who has no public backing or the ability to rule the country. It is the LTTE strategy being tried still by enemies of the country.

        They know that a strong president is bad for their undermining of the country.

        Maithripala is one such person. He wanted the prime minstership when Jayarathna became ill, and Rajapakse refused. So this is the revenge.

        Now he is promising Ranil W the prime minstership!
        Wait till the details of the palace he built in Kaduwela with all imported fittings comes to light. Will he have answers? no.

        He will loose his deposit.

    Cannot MR change his “intention” and again ably supported by M.Peiris & 10 Judges, now that the results of the 2 yr. early PE is written on the wall, which was not envisaged by him????

    MR is no fool to give his SB Voters a chance to thrown him and his
    family out democratically, with the UN sword over his head. Can his
    gamble work out this way? Will not Gota be shivering already, unless
    an “accident” is on the cards? This is Sri Lanka. Hold tight for

      sorry he calculated the exact date his term became 4 years and decided to call the PE as per his twitter to the Hindu- his planning is and was done there so appropriately basil is his organiser.

      Win or loose would the lankans hand over their hero’s- no because it has become part of their culture now. Only the country could have hung him via protest but they have not and all that the Delft may do is give a sentence because all were involved (nations) and EU has no death penalty like US.

    This is going to be the MOST violent election in SL. I won’t be surprised even if there will be a Military Coup.

    The upcoming violence will also allow MR to postpone Pres Election for the next two years, giving him room to hammer his opponent via all the media available to make Maithripala Sirisena irrelevant.

    Btw, If anyone thought RW was a loser, he stands way taller than MR et al.

    In SL we got rid of one Prabaharan to hand over power to his street fighter cousin, democratically and lost.

    Good analysis but as usual, Ranil has made a different decision
    and let down UNP and it’s supporters. Under His
    leadership the party will

    Ranil is the winner all the way. Executive presidency would be abolished this time (because they will go to the mahanayakes and pledge tomorrow), so Ranil becomes the all powerful PM. Where the hell did Dayan Jayatilake vanish? probably to his master at temple tress. Let us make sure that we deal with DJ before the presidential elections so that he wouldn’t mislead the people again. He was a stooge of R Premadasa and at Gamini’s funeral, he was stripped naked by the people and chased down the Kannate road, this time, he should be stripped naked and whipped at Independence squre

    Can anyone really abolish the Executive Presidency ? If it’s in the constitution then we we must have 2/3rd votes parliament and then a referendum, isn’t it. Am I wrong ?

      Vishvajith,

      Abolition of the presidential system is possible and a must. 2/3 and a referendum are required under the constitution. Or parliament can meet as a constitutional assembly and inaugurate a new constitution even with a simple majority. All depend on political circumstances. The elected candidate can promise to act only as nominal executive (like Wijetunga) until such time. Maithripala Sirisena is reliable on this count. I only wish not to give unfeasible dates. JHU has suggested keeping only security/defense. People should be optimistic for change.

    Dreaming of an election? Answer is NO.
    If there is violence, it will be detrimental to the Pope’s visit.
    Pope the saviour. MR will postphone elections.
    Then we shall see hoards of Court cases including against Maithreepala for he has built a mansion at Kaduwela with all imported fittings.
    There is going to be many convictions. Maithreepala will be in jail.
    Again the opposition will be in a disarray.
    All rats who jumped ship exposed.
    All disgruntled UNP’ers who does not support the common Candidate will jump ship.

    It is time Sri Lanka got rid of those who are primarily interested in their own gains, and not interested in doing the right thing for the country. They make Colombo shine, but if one digs deep enough the corruption, threats, and crimes, will surface fast. Although many commenters show hope that the long overdue change will happen, let us not underestimate this family. They will stoop to any crime, and break all rules of decency, to win. They are one of the most ruthless governments we have ever seen, the most evasive when it comes to investigation, and one of the worst when it comes to corruption. This family will walk away one of the most filthy rich families in Sri Lanka, with all their ill gotten gains.

    Finally we have a common candidate behind whom the people of Lanka can unite, to rid our selves of this disgraceful family.
    We will now see many people come out in support openly the fear is now gone.
    I advise no revenge attacks, just prosecute these thieves and seize their assets.

    Dear Dr.Fernado:

    I agree with you and say the following. In order to get rid of the beast ( MR) the UNPers have lost their thinking power. With all due respect Mr.Sirisena up to now was a Mahinthas man and it is a welcome relief to see him jump the ship. He was part of the AXIS of evil.But there is no Gurantee that he will somehow give up everything that he has stood for.
    My choice would have been for either Karu or Sajith to be the presidential candidate and preferably Mr.Sirisena to ( or Mr.Wickremasinga) as vice president. The danger is that the hardcore UNP supporters might abstain which will only benefit MR. Although I supported UNP in the past until we decided to go our seperate ways and now feel disenfranchised from the Sri Lankan political system I will be relutant to throw my weight behind a former SLFPer.

    Cant be trusted.

      Dear Kali,

      You agree and then disagree! I like the dialectic.

      I have known MS for a while and he has been a decent politician. I have met him in several seminars conducted for UPFA provincial counsellors on devolution, constitutional reforms etc. during CBK’s time. His views have always been moderate but progressive. I have also attended at least one radio program with him although I cannot remember the exact topic. He was very accommodative and respectful of the other’s views. That much I remember. As Rajiva Wijesinghe has stated in another column, I also believe that he is committed for a genuine reconciliation. Rajitha Senaratne is the same. I did express my concern about hardcore UNP support for a common candidate at the presidential election. Obviously we cannot meet all the requirements in this type of a situation. I do appreciate UNP’s sacrifice on this common cause. So far RW has played his role very intelligently and even selflessly. I have never been inclined to UNP politics. But I today take my hat off to Ranil. To save democracy, I believe that the best sections of the UNP and the SLFP (and others) should unite. This is a time that people should think beyond party lines. The UNP also will not be disadvantaged and instead it might benefit. As I gather from various news reports, there is already a resurgence in UNP party organizations at local levels. I think we all should close ranks. Although the Tamil (or the minority) issue was not referred to directly in the first press conference, I believe that there would be much hope under a new administration for genuine reconciliation.

    Dear Dr.Fernando

    Thank you for your comments and if you say he is a man of intergrity and a man for the whole of Sri Lankans I am prepared to take your wise words and let us wait and see. But when I said he cant be trusted that is because of what we have been through and the task facing him is immense and I dont know if he has the statute to carry it through. What we need to cure the ills of Sri Lanka is as follows in order of priority.

    1) Accountabilty- Those who were responsible must be punished if the Tamils are to forget and move on and embrace our Sinhlase brethren.
    2)Reconcilliation— For us to reconcile our differences it can only be achieved by doing the following.
    a) Set up a Truth and Reconciliation committe.
    b) Devolve enough power similar to what we have in India so that we are responsible for our security and destiny within a United Sri Lanka to avoid the horrors of Krishnathi and Isaipriya.
    c) Stop large scale colinisation.

    This is the minimum we need to keep Sri Lanka together and hope and pray that the electorate will give him a thumping endorsement to carry it through. Let us wait and see.

      kali good to see you!

      Vengeance/revenge is lustful so in fairness lets see the JT’s too brought to justice wherever they may be. Then you would be loved and even forgiven.
      When VP fired that first gun it was a quest of his to become the aristocratic class and when Colombo burned in 83 it was you the catalyst not the urban tamils.
      Play humble and you are strong. Remember the words of wisdom from Wiggie to Tamil Nadu to keep away now see what happened to her so sad.
      BTW your choice is the paskaralingam/Preme style don’t he is too weak not the detailer. Ranil has always been open to tamils and JT’s behind closed doors a gentleman and nothing to do with vote.

              Hindia to date has not handed over Chinese prisoners of war and is the largest democracy while China handed over every single one of them.

              To date the heros of lanka are nonnegotiable they will not hand over- its blended into the culture- aren’t tamils living in their midst as before yes but you are halting their progress too isn’t it??

              That is the practical side . no western pressure is going to change that. You don’t reflect – JT recruited folk in the west stand with placards at most chains in the garment industry from london to new york while lanka will keep on exporting its undergarments – you have no effect why You did not have toilets or underwear there even when you new found british pets governed the place –
              You had to come down to colombo the manufacturing zone for underwear and that includes further up deep down to new delhi- the whole of hindia (did not have to stop a dick stand we play rugby ;) did not have and aren’t in that sector even today (cultural sickness but is now fading with globalization) Cricket was invented with the frying pans in the the britsh army mess after mealls in the rubber estates at kerala not rugby.
              You need imagination to analyse information which you sadly don’t have when you think in narrow terms of caste creed etc for power and existence.
              Nice guy sad case.
