Sirisena Caught Lying About Telephone Conversation With UN Chief: Secretary-General Informs Sirisena To Hold Parliamentary Vote As Soon As Possible

Causing further embarrassment for President Maithripala Srisena, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued a statement this morning stating he urged Sirisena to revert to Parliamentary procedures and hold a vote “as soon as possible” to appoint a Prime Minister.

Explaining the UN Chief’s telephone conversation with Sirisena, the UNSG Office, this morning, said Guterres urged the Sri Lankan President to revert to Parliamentary procedures and allow the Parliament to vote on the Prime Minister’s appointment as soon as possible.

Secretary-General informed the President that he was following developments in Sri Lanka and offered assistance in facilitating a dialogue with all parties to resolve the current situation, the statement also added. “emphasized the government’s responsibility to ensure peace, security, and respect for the rule of law.”

Painting a different picture about his telephone conversation with the UN Chief, Sirisena said he had a ‘highly successful” discussion with the UN Secretary-General, indicating Guterres was in agreement with the Sri Lankan President’s unconstitutional conduct.

Sirisena said, “I assured him that the appointment of the new Prime Minister has been done in keeping with the Constitution of Sri Lanka .”

    We have a belief that the UN chief is a person with a brain.

    President had earlier set the date for 18th November so anybody with a brain can understand it’s not a long delay.

    However if the UNSG office has used the word “urged” instead of requested or advised it’s less diplomatic & the fault is not in our president.

    Were there any reports from the UN office to say that the president had been adamant on his decision & refused or reluctant to change his stance?

    Personally it’s difficult to believe as our humble president is a very flexible person.

    Does CT have reports/knowledge to say that the discussion hasn’t been cordial?

      RR,
      “Personally it’s difficult to believe as our humble president is a very flexible person.”
      You are right. So flexible that he can put any self-respecting snake to shame.

    This idiot didn’t understand UNSG’s conversation. Can he respond to him in English Spanish or French? This idiot knows “yes” “no” and none else. This sucker is born liar, betrayer, shit on the same plate where he ate. What more do you want? He wasted tax money to trips to address UN General assembly four times in native language where his predecessors gave very eloquent speech to the applause of Heads of State. Even President Premadasa addressed UN so confidently in English. This grama sevaka ralahami is a disgrace to whole nation. Wonder how he got in to politics where past premiers, presidents, ministers and mp’s so excelled with clean politics. Damn shame he had to fall at the feet of Jarapakse’s who have robbed this country left right & center.
    Without becoming further disgrace, this backbone less patholaya should leave or should be removed/impeached. All actions of post Mahinda appointement should be rescinded.Restore immediately ITN & Rupavahini from the clutches of devil Mahinda and bring back freedom of speech. Deport Basil , Gota clan to where they belong. We don’t need those kallathoni paragathiyo. Jayaweva to democracy in Sri Lanka.

    Nothing said or done by the “Appaya” has credibility. This guy is a born straight face liar. Has been working with MR for months before falsely accusing India of an assassination plot, then denied what he said like a coward and went on making up things as he went along.

    “Namal Rajapaksa, the son of the newly sworn-in Prime Minister, said that his father and the President had been in talks for around four to five months.”
    He took all the voters for fools.

    “Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said that Prez Sirisena had verbally informed him that Parliament would be reconvened on 7 Nov.”
    Watch on or before Nov. 7 the Appaya is going to say that he said no such thing.

    Appaya wants to trade govt positions to coverup major fraud and murder during MR’s time where he was a major part.

    “A Sri Lankan legislator on Friday said he had been offered $2.8 million and a ministerial post by a telephone caller from the opposite camp to switch his support to new Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa in a week-old political crisis.”

    Reliability of IL Presidante’: The opinion of our commenters that one cannot get any truth from the lips of MS is wrong. You can, if you know how to. This can be explained using Boolean Algebra. I have found this method to be yielding correct results with a high degree of reliability. Let me explain.
    .
    Ordinary Algebra, first developed by Al Jabr, an Arabic mathematician, deals with quantities. On the other hand, Boolean Algebra, developed by George Boole of France, deals with logic. It assumes that there are only two values in logic (0 &1). A statement is either true or false. There are no half-truths or half-lies in Boolean Algebra. If a statement is true, it has a logic value of 1 and vice versa.
    .
    In Boolean Algebra there are also Boolean operations. Here we have to use only one – Negation. (i.e.) logic 1 becomes 0, logic 0 becomes 1. Taking an example consider the statement of Sirisena that the UN Secretary-General, Guterres was in agreement with the Sri Lankan President’s conduct.
    .
    In Boolean Algebra we can say A = the UN Secretary-General, Guterres was in agreement with the Sri Lankan President’s conduct.
    .
    Thus A’ (Negation of A) = the UN Secretary-General, Guterres was in disagreement with the Sri Lankan President’s conduct.
    .
    Thus, in the case of MS, honest is dishonest, smart is stupid and so on. (i.e.) You have to negate everything he says. ‘I am not going to reconvene the Parliament on 7th’ becomes, I am going to reconvene on 16th . ’¬
    .
    So, that is what is going to happen. Parliament will be reconvened on 16th.

    I am sure there is some sabotage taking place to oust Ranil Wickremasinghe. Maithiripala Srisena is dishonest. He has forgotten the past. First the appointment of MR as PM is undemocratic and unconstitutional. I am wondering why Ranil Wickremasinghe be given an opportunity to rule the country. There will be economic boom if he is given an opportunity. As it is, I will not be surprised if Maithiripala Srisena gives an Order for the release of all Tamil political prisoners in order to gain support from the Tamils as the TULF is a block for MR to demonstrate his commanding of the majority. These are cunning moves as such release will eventually end up in communal disturbances. Of course, they should be released but such order should be honest. It is the President who first said ‘no Federalism and no amalgamation of the North and East Provinces’. He does not what he is talking. Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Accord is still binding. Is he provoking India. I think he has fallen in the trap spread by some foreign country. No he started telling lies after lies. The UNSC also knows the cunningness of Maithiripala Srisena. Why is he reluctant to convene the Parliament? It is a million dollar question..

    The situation as of now is , ROGUES are speaking rogue language without the
    slightest feeling or signs of guilt ! The plans of U N P to follow democratic
    rules to RESOLVE THE CRISIS (COUP) is being challenged by thuggish ways
    while the country is watching . The Tyrants are only sending signals that
    they didn’t come for backtracking . It is hard to think that bloodshed can be
    avoided and Army won’t intervene ! Army will have to intervene in both cases,
    to stop bloodshed and to avoid bloodshed , ending the unfought words of mouth .
    It is still hard to imagine that RANIL IS READY TO DO THE WRESTLE ! He has a
    record of being Mr DECENT AND QUIET GUY . The choice of U N P’s play is
    PERFECT . DO IT OR DIE ! But will the enemy back off without a showdown ?
    TWO THINGS ARE VERY CLEAR HERE . TYRANTS HAVE EXTERNAL BACKING !
    And a dictatorship is being unleashed ! It could be U N P , it could be MARA
    or even military Junta ! And , and , and then , where did Ranil suddenly get this
    resolve from ? I want to force Monday before Sunday ! I can’t wait to see Ranil
    in the ring vs the false heroes !

    President Sirisena should understnad that there western fraction of UN. They support only the western agenda. Present UN Secretry understands that the west destroyed their country which is bankrupt now. SO, he will be czautious except these phone calls. (GOd Natha).
    PREsident Sirisena should not bend to the West or to anyone else. Instead PROROUGE the parliament for six monhs or indefinitely as you wish. Postpone elections as wiyou wish. IF Sri lanka is to be a decent county, it has to begin at the parliament. SEcond to that is STOP ALL THE IMPORTS. GO to MRs. B’s time. Produce everthing in Sri lanka. I heard these huan right respecting and democratic – embassies of the G7 and their friends stopped AIDS to Sri lanka even at that time. In a decent co7ntry, Ranil, RAvi and many UNPs should be arrested. Ranil wats to come back. the west has spoken to Mahinda Rajapakse earlier. So, Mahinda Rajapakse may think of double crossing.

    There is no limit to the lies the Appaya tells the people. If they have the majority why not call the Parliament immediately, why wait until 16th?

    Tit for Tat: The Colonial powers are indirectly threatening our leaders that unless they do things according to the constitution, they as well as their family members will not be welcome in their countries. This amounts to blackmail. How can they interfere in small countries like hours in this manner?
    .
    What do they have in their countries for tourists, other than drugs, liquor and sex? We have everything.
    .
    I propose that we retaliate by not allowing these leaders to come even as tourists.

      Forget the colonial powers, every citizen of Sri Lanka should demand that the constitution be strictly followed. As for tourism, the country was nominated as the top destination to visit in 2019 by Lonely Planet. If the constitutional coup is not reversed we may end up ” Lonely on this Planet”.
