No Dissolution Of Parliament Before 4 1/2 Years: Mahinda Rajapaksa Admits

Contrary to arguments by the UPFA MPs and their supporters, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has publicly admitted that Parliament cannot be dissolved before four and a half years under the provisions of the 19th Amendment.

In an interview with BBC Sandeshaya in February, this year, Rajapaksa said Parliament could not be dissolved before four and a half years under the latest constitutional amendment. Rajapaksa spoke to BBC Sandeshaya at the conclusion of the last Local Government election, in which his party, the SLPP, pulled off a stunning victory.

Rajapaksa said all parties in Parliament should come together in demanding a Parliamentary election and seek a fresh mandate from the public. Rajapaksa has also admitted that an early dissolution of Parliamentary required a resolution by a two thirds majority.

Rajapaksa’s views on the 19th Amendment today demonstrate a sharp shift in his opinion on the dissolution of Parliament and holding a snap election. Rajapaksa and his group now fiercely argue that the President is empowered to dissolve Parliament and hold snap elections at will, despite strong constitutional barriers imposed by the 19th Amendment.

    Sira and Mara have gone mad and country is going bankrupt.
    Nalaka Godahewa who is on bail for allegation of corruption is appointed as chairman of SLIC – CID inspector got transferred – Kapila Chandrasen was appointed as chairman, Sri Lankan while a presidential commission appointed by Sira is investigating his misdeeds. Minister of (in)justice who gave us inferior petrol is talking about removing special courts. Well played you mutts!

      RE: No Dissolution Of Parliament Before 4 1/2 Years: Mahinda Rajapaksa Admits

      Gon Sira, or rather Katta Sira took you for a ride.

      The Parliament can be dissolved if 2/3 votes for it The Parliament can also vote to impeach Sira, the gut who stabbed you in the back, then in the front recently

      Can Sri Lanka survive its political turmoil?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=080rgVgY0Jg

      Can the Rajapaksa crooks survive the criminal investigation against them?

      Well, here is summary, for from a Financial times

      Sri Lanka’s president has fired the prime minister, replaced him with the country’s former autocrat, and dissolved parliament. In other words, Sri Lanka’s democracy is under attack from within. Lou explains the complex dynamics at play, and how long-simmering ethnic tensions have led to a divided country still struggling to recover from a horrific civil war

        There is no basis whatever being spoken by Rajakashe

        1). Yes, this video and other videos/audio tapes all prove that Mahinda Rajakashe’s statements are akin to that of Northkorean leader Kim Jong Ju

        2) In his recent official trip to India he louded that one of his siblings can well be the contender to next prez election, but on the following day returning to lanka, he said, ” you guys need to listen what he added to indian press”. His condom supporter Gonthadipila went on saying – that they waited until the grand reveal bla bla.. but on MR s return, Gonthadipila put his tail behind the rear legs and kept silent asif he is caught by a big crime – remember you guys ?

        3) And Ballige Putha Rajakshe challenged the MS-RW government, that he would make tangible changes to lanken ECONOMY after returning to power. But we all know the lanken rupee depreciation even further continued with him being the head of ministry of finance ?

        4) Not ONLY Rajakashe, the same argument on the regulations as read in constitution revealed by Prez Sirisena in a press in India. But today, he behaves as if he is the headless chicken. ONE more blunder behind the other. How come these men have not the least respect to CONSTITUTIOON, not Kamal Khashoggi
        Saudi Arabian journalist but thse crimiminal DUO deserve the very same punishment as I feel looking back.
        My angers have no limit, we are appalled by the situation. These two men should be hung by the law prevailing in the country

      It is not fair to attack former President for something President Sirisena did.
      He dissolved the Parliament on the advice of his Kewattayas and former President has nothing to with stupid Kewatta work.
      President Sirisena is the sole reason for growing instability and the political turmoil in the country.
      Some people and Maha Sangha talk about a general election and a referendum.
      There is no need to go for any of them when there is an easy solution.
      President Sirisena can easily dissolve his office after January 8, 2019 and go home letting a sane man to take over the country, through a free and fair election. Anybody is ok at this point. Anybody, except a Rajapaksa, of course.

          Amarasiri,

          no point of talking to CHAMPA.

          She is very strange all these days. Sometimes he or she attacks very clearly SIRISENA, but never the very same beast says anything against MOST abusive BALLIGE putha Rajapakshe:

          For me, if Rajaashe would have been HUNG next hour, it is the very good thing this nation at least 62 lacks of voters would be proud of.

          I have no sadness about Rajakshes. They dont respect LAW and order. He doest not deserve any more respect.

      Healines for this day: 22 Nov 2018

      1. Late Septagenariyan Vasudhewa (79yrs) praises the way illegimate CABINnNET meeting and what they discussed there -he feels no matter anything would have been the case, but him to stay being abused until nearing his death.

      2. This very same Vasudewas was seen in the parliament brawl last week, being close to that bugger KASIPPU man turn politician-Prasanna Ranaweera who threw chillie-Water to 78 year old Hon. Speaker Mr Jayasooriya. And 73 year old STRONG man of punnakku eaters in the country, none other than Rajapakshe was also seen whispering some secrets to those Rajakshe loyalists in the brawl.

      3. Moodies ranking system has downgraded srilanka as B2 – thanks go to Ballige putha Sirisena and murderous Rajapakshe

      4. How would the people face the aftershocks of all their bumpings and dumpings is beyond undeerstanding. Some go to Sathyagraha and others stay nail biting further.
      All in all the country is fallen to a big well – as UNPrs predicted, but MEDIA prostitutes painted the picture in favour of ALIBABA and thieves.

      Hey friends,
      Jamal Khashogigis murder ist being investigated and CID has concluded that Crown Pinrce to have ordered that murder.
      But in our country ” Lasaantha Wickramathunge” the editor of a LOCAL NEWS PAPER was murdered on broad day light, but nothing is seen in terms of serving the justice.
      All together over 44 journos have beenmurdered and dozens have fled the country escaping their lives. I can understand well the anxities of the daughter of the victim from her letter circulated these days. Rajaakshes are barbarians. They woudl even bring HUMAN flesh as marketed items into super markets next days.
      We are no better a country similar to Saudi Arabia I feel. Today, the danger is returned with the direct approval and mediation of the most stupid president. So we should not just let it go the FAKE cabinet being in power today.

      I really dont know why ARABs are born violent people. They behave sobre but to have killed that walk-in journalist in Turkey and the body to have been dismembered is beyond all ethics and morals. how can these people ever be blessed with Allah or other gods ?

    How MR pulled a victory at the last Local Govt Elections is because majority of the UNPers did not go to vote, because it was an election to select individuals to clean drains and repair roads at local level. This time around all have been awoken to the danger of MR’s return if they do not go to vote. Hence all anti MR will vote en-masses to shut him off, much against the belief of the MR apologists, that MR will win with a comfortable majority.

      Gamini, the SLPP winning considerably is from a scripted election narrative. Do you know that even the criminal Mahinda became astonished to see how he got so much votes for his party. Which means its a totally pre-planned election rigging. I strongly believe that its a well coordinated psy-op election to achieve something hidden goal that the normal peasant would not understand. Govigama Mafia Ruling Elites planned it as a come back plan for Mahinda. They cooked up the results to show SLPP winning in most areas. This is the reason why Ranil & Maithree did not make any effort to fix MaRa for his crimes. BJP, West, Israel are all waiting to bring this thief back in power. Because, there is an Agenda waiting for Mahinda’s Fascist rule. The Global War on Islam needs a Mahinda to massacre the Sri Lankan Muslims….for its Pivot of Asia program.

        The present so called political crisis is not a sudden thing that erupted out of no where. It was well planned and executed in the usual GOVIGAMA MAFIA Ruling Elite style. Likewise, SWRD Banda did not suddenly bring about the SINHALA ONLY criminality. JR spoke about it and Anagarika Adharmapala propagated it long long before at a time even the insependence was never even thought about. It was in their card already. So, its all well planned, meaning all the GOVI led mainstream political party leadership, who are by the way happens to be GOVIGAMA ELITES collaborating in the project in too many different ways. Some are open and some are in secert. Openly the UNP and the SLFP are rivals. But, in secret, they have a ONE GOAL, ONE MISSION -AGENDA that they all working together to achieve. The reasons are many. The main reason is the DOMINATION and keeping the STATE CONTROL within their clan. Now, coming to the present one, Ranil Sira govt., from the very inception gave the public a PSY-OP coded message. They were conveying that they are facing problems in implementing the pledges given to the public during the election campaign with regards to serious matters. This was carefully carried out in a step by step level by employing various methods. Indirectly they conveyed the message and only the very few were able to see the effects of the incidents and issues and no one could identify or detect the intentions behind them.—-contd…——

        So, Sira started off by bringing in MaRa’s criminals in the previous regime, one by one, into the system of Yahapalanaya. Sira also displayed his Sinhala Buddhist Fascist politics in allowing the pro-MaRa type monks to show their strengths in intimidating and harrassing the Tamils and Muslims. The thug-Monk in Trinco started his antics by seizing minority properties by force openly defying the law. The Police watching were allowed to watch and give cover to the instigator of violence and not the victims. It was so with all other incidents involving the Muslims when they were being subjugated to oppressive tactics employed by the thug-monks. Thats a sign of the Sira being the silent partner in the crime and thats a coded message given to the likeminded Sinhala Racist Terrorists, as a licence to kill and to do what they like. Jumping to the incident of Sira taking Gnanasara to Japan with a govt delegation is another coded message. The UNP leadership in its role in the secret Sinhala Only agenda mission, were showing no sign of reacting to any of these things, maintained a stark silence on these criminal shows. US, Japan, Myanmar and India are in this game in their own designs, but in the same collaboration, by facilitating VISAS to travel for these openly Terrorising figures like Gnanasara, Gota/Rajapakse clan members and Sarath Weerasekera (the main conspirator of Kandy-Digana riots) to travel the world freely.

        The coded messages were too many and Sira just issued them one after the other. The Muslim ministers were complaining about the plans of BBS and its allied Terrorist groups like the Mahason Balakaya about its open declaration of impending violence and perpetration. Sira and Ranil did not give even a slight hearing to their plight. Which means, their insensitivity is a coded message to say something like “Its our plan, and we are in it too, sorry guys better luck next time”… and the planned intimidation went as far as they employed a decoy (the Sinhala guy who was involved in the False Flag brawl, who died in the hospital mysteriously) staged a fake drama of allegedly assaulted by the Muslim youths on which the State Spinsored pogrom was unleashed with sheer brutal manner. The Mossad/RSS backed Govigama criminality team planned this according to the usual Mossad Anti Muslim operation they conduct inside Israel and in many Muslim countries and where Muslims are minorities.. The rest of the open story is known to everyone. But, the secret codes were known only to the few who can be smart and intelligent.

      With all Respect to you Gamini, what I see in UNPers is their slow motion of spreading the facts to the grass root level people.
      I am telling you – SOMETHING that I myself noticed also yesterday in a political discussion held by Derana ABUSIVE one fo the orifices of RAJAKASHE. Two panelists, Derana abused to transport the message against facts MADE their efforts to say ” nothing is done by MS-RW rule to the country”.
      My gosh,
      1) over 10 000 bucks were added to their monthly salaries immediately Ranil came into power
      2) Road and Construction projects continued even better than in the previous so called regime, but going by tenders and transparencies.
      3) 19th Amendament was implemented to the constitution, albeit, STUPIDand Sirisena the alzheimer patient of the nation, did not respect it today
      4) They did lot more changes into Ministry of Education
      5) They did lot more changed into Ministery of Health, but GMOA, low lives painted it as if nothing was achieved. But we the ones from outside world, know over 50 or more medical drugs were subjected to tangible price reductions; a stent which was then 3 lacks of Rps was reduced to 1 lack or less. Some reudction percentages were 75% . But nothing was in the media, but WHO and other world bodies repected and MINISTER of health was awarded with WORLD titles. remember ?
      Just keep aside, if you have differences with RAJITHA S but he did what Rajakshe failed to do during his high days
      6). Why the MEDIA PROSTITUTes just behave that they are made to be servile by birth ?
      I think they are under pressure by the threats being excised on them by Rajakashe LOYALISTS.

    This is what UNP has been saying all along. What is important here is the way that Rajapaksa has been deluding the local voters with all kinds of untruths regarding the time and the conditions required for the dissolution of Parliament while coming out with the truth for BBC. He knows that he can fool the local voters but not BBC.
    .
    This proves what I have been saying all along. That there are two kinds of Rajapaksa supporters. (1) Humans who eat grass and (ii) Cattle who eat rice. Rajapaksa’s partiality to BBC shows that he agrees with me.
    .
    This means all the confident declarations of his minions are also untrue. Either they are cheats, or they are liars. We knew all along who they are, but it is nice to know finally that we were right.
    .
    The reason fixing a minimum limit for the life of a parliament is obvious to any average Putujjana. If you don’t have such a limit, the country would have elections, every time the President gets up on the wrong side of the bed. Burning one’s family paddy field on a whim is one thing. But frequent dissolutions on excuses such as that you don’t like your PM’s face is quite something else.
    .
    Elections are very expensive and frequent ones would show the world that there is instability in the country. It is like taking Aralu doses too frequently. A purge is good once in a way. But too many of them could be too much. One may take solace from the fact that the patient’s stomach is clean – but at the same time one cannot ignore the death of the fully purged patient.

    නිසි අධ්යාපනයක් නොලැබු දකුණේ ක්රිමිනල් සිංහල පොල් බුරුවො! To the uneducated Sinhala coconut donkeys of the south. Here is an ideal poem that suit you. I provide consent, all rights and privileges for the Colombo Telegraph to publish.

    අම්බලමෙ පිනා (Ambalame Pina….and the Madumulane cow)
    මැදමුලනේ ගොනා
    රාඡ්ය බලය අහිම වුණා (has failed to usurp power…but )
    රට අගාධයේම තමා! ( is sending our country crashing to the ocean depth)

    මේක තමයි සාමාන්ය දකුණේ සිංහල රස්තියාදු, පාපතර, දූෂිත, අසික්කිත ග්රාමීය සම්ප්රදාය. බුදුදහම නැති, නිසි අධ්යාපනයක් නැති, විනයක් නැති, මතවාදයෙන් , නීතියෙන් (නිතියට සාධාරණ), වියවස්ථාවේන්, විධායකයෙන් ජයගන්න බැරිනම්, ගහලා මරලා හරි ජයගැනීම. බුදුන්ගේ දර්මයටත් අගවුරවයක්!

    That was Yesteryear , when our inhabitants, the great majority of the inhabitant population , in fact owned the Magamapura Harbor, Mattala Airport, Colombo Port Terminals and other valuable National assets.

    And our Inhabitants didn’t have extra USD 21 Billion Debt to pay for UNP Minsters and Members of Parliaments luxury Defenders with Leather seats
    Extra bonuses every month to help Dr Ranil get his Partition Constitution past the Post.
    Plus their Hefty Salaries and other Perks.
    And other Santhosams which they collected from dodgy deal like AirBus A 350s, Express Ride to Temple of the Tooth and Yahapalana Bonds

    If Dr Ranil and his Robber Barons were allowed to continue , our great inhabitant majority would have lost everything which they call their National assets
    And their rights to a decent Free Education, decent Free Heath Care and decent Employment .

    To add insult to the injury. them and their future generations would have been forced to find work as sort of bonded labor from Hindians Hakka Chinese and Singapore Tamils…

    What do you all think if the Parliament is not dissolved? The RW camp can bring a proper NCM and defeat MR, and My3 can appoint another Prime minister, if the Government is defeated he can appoint another cabinet as well (it can all be from SLPP and SLFP), it can go on until it is time for the Presidential election, then Gota will become the President. In the meantime the government can lose a budget and the President is then allowed to dissolve the Parliament.

        Yes,

        But I wonder why you still hang on to BALLIGE putha Rajakshe as if your genitals lie with him ?
        I really wonder why you the like ilk, behave with inconsistencies as no other low lives would have done.
        I TODAY love afrian leaders, since I dont find any big difference between Ballige Puthas of SIRISENA and Rajakashe nature.
        They in Ivory coast are reported to have built the most expensive CHURCH of the world, but many in that part of the coutnry are under poverty lines. Those peoples have no space to shine a voice since Those leaders have no hearts.
        The very same is being seen, in SL, under Ballige putha Rajakshe and SIRISENA, they just ignored the grievances of those HUMAN-ELEPHANT conflicts .. and the poverty governing in that and other part of the lanka… it is no means overlooked by any leaders. Let alone they should be given clean water to drink. There had been reports, that brought about grade 5 school going children cant return home or after their scholarship exams. Or some were put to death on their way back home by wild elephants.
        These ballige puthas abuse state funds them to let airlift from A to B not thinking the slightest about the WASTages:
        We perfeclty know Ballige putha Rajakshe LOOTED srilanken Airline by turing it from profit earning to highly bankrupt company.
        Huge losses amounted to few hundred billions from STATE treasury should be charged from MEDAMULANA or other assets they accumulated.
        Now ballige puthas infamous murderous son Yoshita s name on the top of list as the donor in buying MPs from the oppositon. Please give this an attention and pass this. These men shoudl be subjected to Kamal Khagashi’s destiny if gods see it right

          Besides, I have closely observed what has happened in the country for 4 years!!!!
          What I am against is President’s move to undermine people’s mandate though it doesn’t lie with the party I supported in 2015.

            You had been not the same on CT over the few years, you always stood by them.
            But today we see, that you change your mind from one day to another.

            We want RAJAKSHE to be brought before interntional courts and let solve the issue there. Wait and see what is going tob e the case next days. I really dont want just becuase their political intoxication, our country to be faced trade sanctions .
            There are poor ones that need medicine and food items, if these buggers would not sense it, we are helpless things would turn out to be worse.

          “Where is real Champa that people enjoyed kicking like a foot ball?”

    BBC represebts the typical International community. BBC did the same thing during the LTTE time and was harasseing the then govt. For BBC, the election, the constitution blah blah is the important and not the country’s economic condition which made the rupee is toilet paper for tourists.

    PResident Rajapakse did not do the proper. He should not be so accomodating with the BBC. Instead, he should have tried to find the motive of the BBC. It is the sanme with Parliamentarians who work for the International community, Ranil, Mangala, JVP and their own interests. HE should be more crafty.

    Not surprisingly, almost everyone in this “kopi kade” are consoling themselves by hurling abuse and predicting a massive defeat to MR in the event of a general election. So, why don’t they advise Ranil or even campaign for a general election now and face the public. If we were to go by all these predictions, Ranil and his bank robbers would return with a consolidated majority so that they could strip the country’s assets at will. Go on, put your money where your mouth is!

      Thris the most abusive condom supporter to Rajaakshe clan,

      we and entire world endorsed that the election held in 2015 and later were free from usual vote rigging and various abuses.

      That is the reason we should all go to an election but not UNDER FAKE govt led by Rajakashe Ballige putha.

      To me, I ask gods to punish this bugger the way that Jamal Khashoggi faced it in Turkey lately. Not R Premadasa but Mahind Rajakshe should long have been destined to the very same manner going by all the mountains of crimes his mediation committed then and even today today.
      Who on earth allow as a 73 year old to throw CHILLI POWDER on to his political rival who is even 78 years (Speaker Hon Karu Jayasooriya). Man, if English men would throw CHILLI POWDER not being able to tolerate your skin colour even if you guys do some good work being close MONGOOSE as done before, woudl you support English men that did harm to you ?
      Thrisu, just see it right and educate at least your children, since you always sit with rascals for some reasons. That may well be the reason you failed to be awarded with a Prof though your colleague earn it long ago.

        Champa further makes every effort to praise his boss NUMBER one customer.

        I believe, the only reason Champawathie to hang over with Rajakshe is her initimate relationship built up through her oldest profession.
        Else, we dont know any one with a bird brain would ever share her or his support to Rajakshe.
        I am ashamed to call me Sinhalaya, the gravity of HARM Rajaakshes have been doing to this nation.

    Statements made by MR then shows that he is only interested in a general election. The correct action has now been taken in invoking the jurisdiction of the court to determine constitutionality of the dissolution. I have commented before that unconstitutional action taken in response to a frenzy and paranoia is not acceptable. In view of the alleged “butterfly” action to the extent of plotting an assassination it is the immature who gets into a heightened state, close access to public roads etc. What is essentially done is to deny RW the premiership as long as MY3 is the President even if the country goes to the dogs and a total standstill takes place and MY3 will not change his position. It is in furtherance of this action that the Parliament is dissolved, in the anticipation that the UNP will not win a general election, discounting that there can be a possibility of the UNP winning. There are points of view expressed in the Indian media that the UNP is prepared to field a different person as the premier. Perhaps that is one way to end the deadlock.

    Well, Rajapaksa said that thinking unelected UNP parliament was going to follow the constitution, and give the SLPP control of the house after their stunning victory in Feb of this year. As UNP illegally failed to honor the constitution, the President then had every right to dissolve parliament.

      Grandma,

      President then had every right to dissolve parliament.

      But there is no authority left with him to do that.

    This clip should be taken to Court and presented as an additional documentation by the 13 case filers.

    It was believed all these time by all that the parliament cannot be dissolved. But Ranil changed his mind and decided to seat Old King as PM. This created constitutional problems. So Old Royals side decided to dissolve the parliament. Now Old Royals are asking Ranil to defeat the Budget so that they both can go to election. Ranil is in a hurry to seat Old King before March 2019, so he could launch a big battle in Geneva.

    If TNA obtain a court order to reverse New Kings order to dissolve parliament, UNP will defeat the Vote on Account to defeat the Court and TNA. Everybody saw last Sunday how Ranil turned around the IC’s support to defeat them.

    Anyway it is not bad to teach a lesson to Sampanthar for believing, first New King and then, changing loyalty to Ranil and believing Ranil to bring in a Secret Solution.

    Sumanthiran said if Secret Solution is not coming he would leave politics. Now he is saying that no way a Secret Solution can be implemented. Then why is he wasting time in Diyawanna Lake Building?

    What a contradiction. MR would have been aware about Article 36(1) where the Speaker could assume as President if the Chief Justice in his opinion appoints him as President. There is a clause ‘for any other reasons’ which could be interpreted as ‘the President is unable to perform his duties on account of the deplorable conduct of the MPs in Parliament.’ He would have shivered on hearing this interpretation. Secondly, what happens if the Western democratic countries and India decide to issue VISA to Mahinda and his supporters and also about the freezing of his assets in foreign countries. I think these are two items which made Mahinda to do a U-turn. Knowing that his appointment is illegal, he would have felt it a disgrace.

    Now everything is getting normalized with Sira and Mara at the helm.

    Move on guys, this is the latest morphing of Appeh Aanduwa.

    Who will rock the Sira-Mara apple cart? The armed forces? India? The West?

    Everybody has washed hands off Sri Lanka with 2500 years of civilization to rot.

    Did Sri Lanka have a democratic government in the 2500 years before 1949?

    Get on with life regardless.

    To the Editor,

    Surely you can do better than quoting a purported previous point of view as a headline to dramatise when the need of the hour is for people to remain cool headed.
    There is nothing wrong in raising the change in MR’s opinion but a headline on a previous position is dramatic.

    Don’t face The Nation -Face facts
    ———————————————–

    Neither during MR”s or RW’s period The bulk of the Common,honest and hardworking mass ever benefited.

    Never was any importance given to grassroots level developments that directly would have enhance the livelihood of the common man , like express electric Railway just to mention one,many backward nations who have come out of the past Soviet Union and other communist past have it ,but not us to date.

    No good health care ,no good education , though both are free they are both always in crisis.

    The Trishaws( The main alternative transport to the entire common mass) were promised special subsidiary on fuel but never fulfilled .(by both camps)

    The Estate workers promises (By both camps)never fulfilled ,today we have lost our main market- which is tea, and China has taken over the world market. of tea along with spices .

    The only one good thing to happen was shelter to the people by Sajith , now that is too gone back (very regretfully ) to the wrong hands and it is finish ,it would have been better for MR to have handed it over to someone else .

    Racial rioting no change ,during RW s , it went from bad to worse . drug menace , murder ,robbery ,abduction of young girls and rape became a everyday issue .

    abuse of natural resources was seen done openly .streets and homes filled with garbage ,unbearable smell ,massive spread of fly and mosquito breading and spread of dengue ,people helpless no way to clear it ,and private individuals were making millions monthly and the people as usual were at their mercy and yet no way to clear it and has become a ransom.

    Jobs blocked and handed out only to a selected few ,micro financing abused , Tourism ruined .. money laundering rampant disgracing The nation by bring it to the top list in the Hub .

    don’t face the nation -face the facts .cont.

    Again am back to square one , as usual , I assure the people ,you can change governments and leaders ,but as long as you have the executive hybrid governance nothing is going to change .

    Only The JVP is sincerely wanting to abolish it and they can not do it without the help of the people .

    Not a single other Politician including the so much preferred Sajith Premadasa is willing to abolish it .

    no one will do it except the people ,either the people get together and do it ,If not please don’t complain in future.

    Don’t face The Nation -face Facts
    Conclusion

    Once the parliament has a peoples power Constitution where a Senate is represented by the government and The opposition members with a requirement of the Senate for re-election at least once before the term end of the government , believe me there will be very little takers to politics ,only the sincerely dedicated will come forward to face the people.

    We need an accountable governance and we need it today than ever before. .
    ===============================================================
    People have to decide ,think carefully will a general election or Presidential election really change anything ?

    Can you have a safe flight in a Aircraft that has been proved to crash merely by changing the pilots and the crew members?

    Its your future journey , choose a safe flight once you done that you don’t have to worry about the Pilot and crew ,they will be the best
