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 .”

        Viini,
        I know every politician is greedy of power. But I have never seen such a level of power greediness shown by these two and to the level of money exchanged for buying an MP. For example, Mahinda gp paid 1.5 billion rupees to a Tamil MP and to give him a ministerial post. Where did they find the money?

    Appa Sira is a shameless liar. That is why he has rejoined the Rajapaksa Mafia who are all liars, thieves and murderers. These buggers are doing irreparable damage to Sri Lanka’s international standing and reputation with the blessings of the descendants of the Sakhyamuni. This is the cultural superiority of the Sinhala Buddhists over the rest of the world that Appa Sira is always boasting about on public stages.

      This is a very wonderful comment. Sirisena who leaned towards Mao Communism brainwashed by a Tamil and even went to the extent of marrying a girl with his blessings is behaving like this leaning towards chaotic murderers and wealth greedy ace actors who wil go to any extent against democracy. Complete trust kept on him by both communities is no more. Better Siri retires to save the little respect he commands over a few Buddhists. Let Great Naga Deepam n Pearl of the Indian Ocean become popular n wealthy with qualified PMs who is respected locally as well as abroad like Sir John or Dudley etc. and no more clanistic PMs like SWRD.

      Ajay ,

      ” These buggers are doing irreparable damage to Srilanka’s international
      standing and reputation….” U N P , S L F P and J V P , all have done blood
      tests and have some tastes about it ! International standing and reputation
      now has become a thing of the past for them ! First they shed blood of
      Sinhalese , then they went after Tamils and then they went after onlookers
      just because of their ethnicity , nothing else ! They were all easy for them
      because of ethnic and class backgrounds but this time something else in
      some other name is fuming real mad ! Two major parties locking horns that
      waves the hands for a bloodbath is something that no one expected !
      Specially from Ranil ! THIS IS RANIL BATTLE . DO IT OR DIE . BUT THIS
      SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BECOME A RANIL BATTLE BECAUSE , THIS
      IS A BATTLE FOR DEMOCRACY AND RULE OF LAW AGAINST TYRANNY
      EXECUTIVE PRESIDENCY WITH LESS POWER NOW THAN BEFORE , HAS
      RAISED ITS UGLY HEAD . The word International has never been in their
      books .When queen Elizabeth shook hands with the GAMARALA without
      gloves he was over the moon taking it for a saintly gesture . Such is the
      stupidity of PARADISE fools’ mindset !

      Ajay,
      ” This is the cultural superiority of the Sinhala Buddhists over the rest of the world that Appa Sira is always boasting about on public stages.”

      There are many commentators on this forum and others who push the myth that this is a “great hydraulic civilization”, etc . Some keep sneering at Tamilnadu for having no toilets. It is about time these idiots with a superiority complex realized how the outside world sees us now, as a banana republic boasting the most contradictory constitution in the world, which is taken advantage of by the most corrupt who are voted in by the most gullible electorate in the world.
      Tamilnadu may be short of toilets, but are we better off with no pants?
      The international community will not forget this for a long time.

    When parliament remains prorogued until 16th, the Sec Gen’s request to convene parliament “as soon as possible” wouldn’t mean he is in agreement with the date remaining as 16th. Therefore the phone conversation (allowing for MR’s lack of conversational ability in English) cannot be described as a “successful” one.
    Now that the JVP has decided to vote against the president there is the need for him to take the date even beyond 16th to make up for that number against him.
    JVP’s move will now prevent any further crossovers as anyone crossing over must be sure of at least five more crossing over to ensure majority.
    This would be impossible.

    Dear Secretary General,

    Most people of Sri Lanka know by now that Sirisena is a Liar, called PACHAYA locally. Furthermore, multitudes have given him the titles of Traitor, Sevalaya (Sleaze), Mala-Perethaya ( livingoff the dead) and Patholaya ( snake gourd, backbone less person).

    Literate and cultured men should become leaders. When.applicats for jobs are intwrviewed, one of the questions normally asked is about the family so as to ensure an applicants back ground. Sirisena is now expounding his back ground of never understanding the modus operandi of international politics. You can lie to your own people, but not to international community, as they are not fools like the nincomppops of Sri Lanka. Errors in translation has brought 8n two or three versions of constitution,.which can be quoted to suit the whims and fancies of a president whose politicking is disgusts even an ordinary man in the street. Executive powers in the hands of an illiterate is tantamount to a.garland in the hands of a monkey. So the defender of justice, freedom and liberty has now joined hands with the men who brought death and destruction to the country. Nothing more nothing less.

      You know lakpriya what happened to him reminded me what my granny once shared me.
      If a person would not be the suitable to a position, does not earn that much.
      So everything became like Katussa #Sneck is filled with gold chains.
      This man Sirisena was not even good enough to be in COlombo,but his position,lifted up him above his ego. So, world is watching at him. Heads of states greet him. But the bugger is still far from the klnowledge abou the world.
      He cant behave well. That is not overlooked by many. I dont mind him being from a village, but what matters is his high talks but to do all unexpected.
      It is right many saying these days, not a single person respceted him in 2015, supports him today. All left him.
      May be that is the reason him to jump in to pit being made by high criminals of this country.
      He is trapped. Today, the bugger not doubt cant close his eyes in his SLEEP.
      How can a man of that position be that rude to 63 00 000 of this country.

      THose who voter for him were not the idiots, they knew about the democratic values.

      They supported democracy in 2015 are though frustrated, would join hand with a larger portion of 58 00000 that voted for Rajapakshe.
      It is right legitimate PM s statement :

      Parliment is the representative body of all (12 000 000 eleven millions ) . But President is representative of nearly half of them ( 63 000 00)
      So the issue should be discussed in the parliament.

    Liar Liar, not Jim Carrey. This is Gamarala Sirisena, the Hypocrite and a Betrayer.

    This movie is still running in Cinemas in Colombo. Guess what, even Parliament is closed for the benefit of the MP’s to buy tickets.

    Some are even offered in Millions just to sit and watch the Liar, bragging in his inborn aptitude of lying and betraying.

    Sira went on his knees to make MR accept the PM’s office because he thought that’s the best way to get the nomination in T20. It’s now highly unlikely. MR is slowly discovering that he’d be kicked out again in T21 if Sira gets a 2nd term. What a turn of events. !! On the other hand, ALL TRAITORS ARE CERTAIN TO BURN IN HELL.

    This Sirisena created situation is heading for violence. If RW wins a vote in Parliament the opposition will not accept it; things have gone too far for them to retreat. They may face treason charges.

    If MR wins, the public will not accept it because everyone knows of the rampant bribing of MPs. Protests and demonstrations will be endless.

    Well actually, CT eds. your headline sounds like Fake News since there is no big contradiction here?!
    Also, UNSG should have instructed Sira to go for a General Election rather than to call numbers in a Parliament that is a “Cesspit of bi-partisan UNP-SLFP corruption” and horse trading between Bondscam Ranil (who looted Central Bank to pay bribes to corrupt politicians), and Mahinda Jarapassa who also looted and was protected these past 3.5 years by Ranil from corruption investigation..
    Clearly, UNSG does not have the true picture of the Sri Lankan Parliament and the root causes of the problem. He sticks to formal procedure, rather than address the root cause of the crisis in Lanka which is the Political Culture of Corruption, rent seeking with impunity and immunity for politicians who commit Financial Crimes and Hate Crimes
    In fact hate crimes and attacks on minorities are done by corrupt politicians to divide, distract and loot the people of Lanka.

    Oh! Yes! A lot of voice and support is given to a course of action which the so called International Community is interested in. What matters as far as I am concerned is what the people of this country has to say. We proclaim from 1972, that the people of this country are sovereign. From 1978, we say that even voting is a part of that sovereign. When good many of us cast our votes in Jan 8, 2015, leading to the so called rainbow revolution, the team in which the people placed their trust and the program of action was identified. That was slowly disrespected by both sides in the team. Bickering within was visible undermining each other. Finally a credible allegation of assassination, culminating the pinnacle of this police state. (Changed from a military state.) What is purpose of calling for a meeting in the parliament when we all know that there is some horse trading going on for the collection of numbers? That is corruption to the extreme and are we to tolerate that? We need a President and a Parliament with a new mandate from the people who are supposed to be sovereign.

      Have you studied SL constitution (Sinhala version)?
      What did you find out?
      Whoever translated the constitution must be very incompetent and must be the product of 1956 Sinhala only language policy. If that is the case please blame S W R D Banda the public racist.

    “Sirisena Caught Lying”

    He is a politician.
    What else could you expect from him?

    He was trying to emulate an EEL and failed, failed miserably.
    He has lost the confidence of support of UNP, SLFP, JVP, TNA, … Muslims.
    Now he is hanging on to Dr Mahinda’s amudei hoping for better days.

    He is another failed Sinhala/Buddhist racist smart patriot who has squandered the goodwill of many.

    Whats new. We already know MS/MR mostly lie than speak truth. So please print the truth if at all when they speak otherwise you are wasting time and man power. Didnt I mention how MR promised Sushma and after seeing her off at the airport called press to deny it.( even before Sushma touched down Delhi) MS got training from MR in lying and he is trying to outdo the master.MS is the face of Lankans deceptive politics and most international leaders are aware of what to expect from Lankans. That is why Lee Kwan wrote years ago in his autobiography not to trust them.Irony is this fact is known to most except retarded Lankans.

    Shock! Horror!! This is a greater lie than the Bond Scam, isn’t it?

    As these ‘diplomatic’ bullshit goes, the UN man sang for his supper by asking what is going on, and tthe president said “we have changed our PM and prorogued parliament to allow time for a mini budget. Everything is done strictly according to the constitution”. SO the UN man said, we hope everything would be alright and we are here to help you if you need any.

    If I were president, I would have said, thank you for your offer, but all we want is for you to keep your meddling fingers out of our country’s ass so that we can manage our affairs. This would not have been said.

    So the attempt to show that President Sirisena lied is an attempt to push shit uphill.
