Sirisena Again Talks About Forming New Government: Says Sri Lanka Will See Regime Change In 2019

While declaring 2019 as an election year, President Maithripala Sirisena assured that the country would see a new government this year.

Sirisena

Speaking at an SLFP Colombo District meeting held at Parliamentarian Thilanga Sumathipala‘s house in Colombo today, Sirisena said a broad people’s movement, led by the SLFP, would take the lead in establishing a new government in the country.

Sirisena made these remarks nearly five weeks after his attempt to form a new government failed. As Sirisena’s preferred government could not muster a majority support in Parliament, the President had to re-appoint his rival Ranil Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister.

Today’s remarks indicated that Sirisena is unfettered by his failed attempt to form a new government last year.

“The need of the hour is not to defeat political parties or certain individuals. We need to identify the forces that are enemies of the public and defeat them comprehensively, ” Sirisena said at the SLFP meeting. “In every political party, there are people who love the country. We have to embark on a new journey with the support of all of them, irrespective
of party differences.”

Sirisena added, “Today we have to form a government with a fresh perspective. It is not the same way our political mentors formed governments in the 1950s and 60s. Today we have to seek the support of everyone who loves the country and strengthen our camp.”

The President urged all SLFPers to work 24 × 7 to form a government that loves the country. “If all of us act with the same determination, this may not be an impossible task,” he added.

    Sirisena,

    We need a president change now!

    The current president, you, carried out an illegal and unconstitutional coup, and you and your cronies are at large, because the wimpy Parliament is following a policy of appeasement with you, the Traitor, Quisling, Sevalata, Malaysia’s-Perethaya, Pachaya etc. to the 6.2 million who voted for you.

    Sirisena is day dreaming. This fellow is talking nonsense.When we work hard to bring SLFP back to power since 1985 I havent even heard about him.Even all those who are talking like big guys wasn’t there. SB and Mangala came to seen after 1988. I saw them at the opposition leaders residence. Chandrika was in UK. Just imagine this about this fellow. He is just a liar and can do nothing. he is just talk like this today because of the UNP. He must worship them for what they have done.Instead he is just challenge them with his imaginations. A fool don’t know who he is.

    Hi FRIENDS, I dont know how you would find it, as I am reading above insinuations, I thought, SILLYSENA has become fully out of his mind. Peoples grievances are on a rise with few thousands of millions of dollars to be paid off. This man as the leader of the nation obvioulsy is fully taken a ride by a bunch of thugs led by FOMER Pulligona, Mahinda Rajaakshe. Steriotypical -Mahinda Rajapakshe POLITICs has no whatsoever achievements for the progress of the rank-and-file but for his own kith and kin.
    .
    We are so hardup being trapped by chinese loans and every cent would need to be saved, president obvioulsy has no clue about the danger of the situation. If this man would be the leader, we will end up being an another Greece.
    .
    What is being wasted through their by their today is not his own properties but of 22 mio of this country. If my info are right over 5000 millions of US dollars to be paid off in 2019 as the loan settlemets, with most of them resulted from the MR misadminitration.
    :
    Only way out would be to collectively go on protest against the man and encourage whole lot of srilankens to file against this Man and his sanity. His sanity is questionable, no doubt about that.
    .
    We noticed that the complainant already filed a case on the need of examination of his sanity was for some reasons was rejected, but that means not that new complaints on his sanity cant be made.

    Absolute nonsense as Srisena is an untrustworthy President who will never stand firm on his own words! Srisena uttered nonsense about Ranil Wickramasinghe will never be allowed as a PM and later he backed off on it.

    It’s time for International community to intervene militarily, investigate all crimes, abuses, pogroms since 1948, bring those accountable to the ICC and deliver Justice.

    Sri Lanka due to it’s leaders and Buddhist Monks racist and Hatred policies, spends lot of money to arms and armed forces and not in the development of the country. Unless Sinhala people come to senses and demand for International intervention as they are fooled by these alleged corrupt, thugs and criminal leaders for their personal advantage. Sinhala people must demand for accountability and corruption investigation as politicians abd their fiends and families personally benefited while people suffer.

    Sri lanka will suffer unless people democratically demand for transparency, end of corruption by severe punishment to corrupt leaders including Jail and losing civil rights, ordinary Sinhala will continue to suffer.

    If I read HIS message clear, still he feels bad from the ignominious legal defeat in trying to dissolve parliament on his own. So HE has to be engaged in a mission to buy guys and gals in the house at the price they quote and in the process consolidate his position to be the presidential candidate of the “patriots”. BOY! if his supporters are of the type who count thousands of notes by hand in hotel car parks can he generate the money required? In comparison with money required the wealth of his “deadly” brother is a miniscule.

    What is preventing our political leaders from forming a government of the people who love the country? If the President loves our country would he have been doing what he had been doing since January 2015?
    .
    The issue is a lack of openness. There is no genuineness. There is no sincerity.
    .
    What has the government done for people to believe that we all are equal as citizens?
    .
    Make the necessary adjustments required for the people to come under one tent. We don’t need a new government for a lot of things that could be done right away.
    .
    Do not parrot that all are equal. If all are equal let our birth certificate record us as ‘Sri Lankan’s. Remove the categorisation a Sinhales, Tamil, Muslim etc. What for are they there in our birth certificates?
    .
    Do not parrot that all are equal. If all are equal let the national flag depict that.
    .
    Do not parrot that all are equal. If all are equal do the little things that would make everyone feel that they are wanted in nation building. You don’t need a new government for that. The current government can do it.

    There will be Regime changes and Political changes but there will never be any changes to the Economy or future progress to the country.
    These Buggers are a Bloody Scourge and Curse from the days they were born till the day they go to their Bloody Coffins.
    Curse them, their families and their future generations to come so much so that they will rot in their Coffins even before the lids are closed.

    Those who “love the country” will get the plums of office.
    Do those who sell Duty Free Vehicle Permits, love the country?
    Do those who got Rs One Million each from Perpetual Treasuries, love the country?
    Sirisena was shown at the Commonwealth Meeting. He was not quoted as having said anything.
    The others knew that he represented the most corrupt regime

    It is critical that Provincial Elections are held as soon as possible. It is surprising that those who advocate democracy keep postponing elections. UNP is absolutely scared of elections.

    Face the people and if people choose UNP, so be it. The next President can also from the UNP. This is the manner governments are changed.

    Sooner the better. Get rid of this Government of Unpatriotic National Party headed by Don Juan Wikkama-Singham that is ruining this country.
    —————
    Sumanthiram representing elite Vellala Demalu of TNA says they will not accept the term ‘Unitary State’. They are ready to drop the term ‘Orumitta Nadu’ and accept the term ‘Aekeeya Rajjaya’ with their definition of ‘Aekeeya Rajjaya’ which says ‘A country with a Central Government with several Governing bodies’. Should the majority of people in this country, including majority of Demala people who oppose giving Land and Police powers to NPC allow this tiny minority to dictate how this country should be governed?
    ————–
    UNP politicians, including the PM goes around saying that for the first time minorities have agreed to accept the term ‘Aekeeya Rajjaya’. These guys are trying to fool the majority Sinhalayo. Do not get fooled. If Sinhala MPs vote for this constitution that has Confederate features, brand them as traitors and dump them at the next election and treat their families as out castes.

    Sinhalayo, the native people in this country do not have equal status with Demala people whose ancestors brought to this country as slaves from Hindusthan by colonial barbarians.
    Demala people can buy land in any place in the country but Sinhalayo cannot buy land in Yapanaya because of some stupid thing called ‘Thesawalamei’ which was recognized by Parangi colonial bastards.
    At the moment, Vellala Demalu use this to ensure land in Yapanaya does not go to the hands of Sinhalayo. If they get Land Rights Sinhalayo will never ever be able to buy a piece of land in the Northern Province as well as in Eastern Province if they are merged. Therefore, Sinhala MPs should unite and defeat Sumanthiram’s effort to get the new constitution with Confederate features passed in the Parliament.

      Eagle Eye,
      Thesawalamai is much misunderstood. It only refers to property transfer among permanent inhabitants/families of the north – not about sale of lands to others.

      Is this the reason that Sinhalese are falesely claiming ancient Hindu temple lands as Sinhalese Buddhist lands and then forcibly appropriating Tamil lands in the Vanni and Mullaitivu area and Trincomalee in the east? Show me where Thesavalamai bans the sale of lands to Sinhalese? Stop posting nonsense. racist animal. If Thesavalamai is banned then Kandyan and Muslim laws also should be banned understood you animal. It is not the Sri Lankan Tamils but the ancestors of the Sinhalese , at least half of them who are low caste imports from South India. There is enough and more evidence of this. I do not know why Colombo Telegraph allows are racist like you to post all these hatred and lies. Go and do something good in your old age , instead of coming here and spreading lies and hatred.

    Maithiripala Sirisena is trying all his best to oust Ranil Wickremasinghe. He has forgotten how he became President. It is he who spoilt the good governance promised by him by becoming the 3rd richest politician in the country. Therefore it is he who should be identified as the greatest rogue Sri Lanka has ever seen. Moreover, he has appointed undesirable characters as Governors to some Provinces who have lost the election. Since he is antagonising all the democratic countries by allowing room for religious extremists and becoming instrumental for threatening the democratic countries, the people are anxiously awaiting tp send him soon this year. He does feel the pulse of the people.

    It all not the love of the country but his greed for power and his haste for the second term. This bugger loves the country – should be incarcerating for causing so much havoc to the economy and tarnishing good image of the country when he and MR did the illegal, undermocratic and unconstitutional coup. By doing that they became traitors and the sentence for it is death. This lunatic SOB is still roaming free, and should in jail at the earliest for doing the coup.

    Last minute advice; Hardly any time because Elections is round the corner? In Sri Lanka politicians enter parliament to plunder, sell, the country to fill their pockets. We do not lead political leaders but sri Lanka very badly in need of a Statesman like former PM of Lee-Kuan of Singapour .
    It will take centuries over centuries to find one as this rate.
    Other curse is the interference of Maha Sanga and Buddhist Clergy into politics. After 1956 these people have more power than the President and PM.
    If they follow and preach the real teaching Lord Buddah Sri Lanka will be paradise.
    It is sad that our Politicians or the Buddhist clergy will never ever change.
    Unless they change for the betterment of the country Sri Lanka will remain as a failed state for ever and ever, begging other countries to survive.
