Sirisena Violates Constitution Again: Avoids Parliament For Over 3 Months Violating 19A

President Maithripala Sirisena has violated the Constitution again as he has not attended Parliament in three months.

Sirisena

Sirisena has last attended Parliament on October 12, two weeks before he architected a political crisis by appointing Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister.

Although Sirisena reinstated Ranil Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister on December 16 and appointed a UNP-led government, he has failed to attend Parliament thus far.

The 19th Amendment to the Constitution says, “The President shall by virtue of his office attend Parliament once in every three months.”

The Supreme Court has already ruled that President Maithripala Sirisena violated the Constitution by dissolving Parliament prematurely, disregarding provisions stipulated in the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.

    This is for the Lankan retards. Watch today,s news. A parallel government is formed and supported by public and most of international countries including neighbors, Argentina, Brazil and Columbia.The countries with the criminal Maduro are the usual partners in crime China, Russia (both invested heavily on natural resources), Iran a international Pariah , bankrupt Cuba and Turkey who from being only founder Muslim country in NATO now racing towards bankruptcy (potential to be the next in line to be another Venezuela). Maduro is a clone of MR/MS. To be in power he is willing to go to any extend including total destruction of the nation. Today he decided to cut off all diplomatic ties with US which was established after many years by Obama. Will he do the same with the rest of the world????? The current inflation is estimated in million, yes you read it right it is MILLION.

      Sirisena,

      Carry out an illegal and unconstitutional coup with the Fake PM, who is the leader of the opposition.So, ignore the Parliament. The question is why the MOs will not stay impeaching and removing you, and punishing the coup culprits?

      Because the mean IQ of the MPs is also around 79, the mean of the population.

      Where will you go next with your cronies, after Philippines and Singapore?

      Sirisena,

      You can tell the parliament, that since the illegal dissolution of the Parliament, my balls also dissolved, and I can’t come as before, irrespective of 19A,.

      Ask Parliament if they will impeach you?

      Ask parliament if they will abolish the executive presidency?

      If so, no need for a president and no need to show up at the parliament. After all, Mahinda Rajapaks as the MP, never showed up, fore he became the Fake PM.

    Srisena is not only violated the constitution but also commited a criminal offence by executing a political coup. But still he continues with his executive power without any fear of legal action and no one seems to worry about that. This is the chracteristic of our Nation and this land is not a land of Lord Buddha but this is the land of those using Lord Buddha to carry out all the crimes against humanity.

      Our friend is now emulating Duterte-style authoritarianism.

      Nobody can do anything, move on. He might even refuse to leave office at the end of his term, just like Mahinda tried.

      May be they can scheme up something together!

      “This is the chracteristic of our Nation and this land is not a land of Lord Buddha but this is the land of those using Lord Buddha to carry out all the crimes against humanity.”

      They all follow Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism”,. that is different from Buddhism.

      Unfortunately, the poor ‘Sorry Lankans’ are helpless in this regard as none of the 225 ‘Diyavanna Vultures’ are happy to come forward. There is no future for this once beautifully managed island by the ‘British’, although these ungrateful civilization still enjoy the centuries old infrastructure, railroads and the plantations and many more.

    19A, which is passed only with 2/3 majority is not vested with powers to dictate terms to the Executive Presidency in terms of his duties and powers.
    As said before, the transfer of powers of the Executive President could only be enacted after receiving people’s approval by way of a Referendum. 19A is only half done.
    It is time the President seek a clarification from the Supreme Court about transferring of powers and making his position subordinate to a mere Constitutional Council which has no power to overrule the Executive President who is directly elected by people. The Executive President is only answerable to people.

      As of the dissolution of Parliament, President’s power is not taken, but it was only restricted by fixing the Parliament for 4 1/2 years which can be reversed at any time with 2/3 majority in Parliament.
      About the position of Prime Minister, President has no say there, as per Parliamentary practices and traditions, the leader of the party/alliance which secures the majority automatically entitled to be the PM.
      In all other occasions, President retains the powers vested by the 1978 Constitution.
      What is notable here is, without the support of the President and the UPFA in 2015, UNP could not have passed the 19A. If the President objected, there was no 19A.
      As per the Constitution, every Parliamentary Act should receive President’s approval, even though they are passed by Parliament with 2/3 majority.

        Even gynocologists would not be able to help you if you would do the business this effectively. You please think of your health, Champi.. We perfectly know your services to them are indispensable. And caterlisator to their sinister actions.

      There are rumours, that he would be happier if he could use statefunds for his so called entourages than make use of them for the benefit of the people.

    My dear edwina

    Dimuth Karunarathne did not give away willingly. He lacks talent. Even a schoolboy cricketer would have survived the last ball? who pick them? why cant we chuck out this hathurusinghe guy?

      Manel Anoda,. You are right about Dimuth not giving away his wicket willingly. But you are wrong to say he lacks talent. A man who lacks talent cannot have scored as well as he has did last year to merit inclusion in the ICC Test team for 2018. Even the most talented cricketer can get out to the last ball of the day. This has happened times without number. So, let’s not be harsh on Dimuth. Anyone who saw how he batted in the first innings will have no doubts about either his commitment or his talents. Bad luck, Dimuth. We know you’ll make amends when the teams meet up again in the second Test.

    President Sirisena want leave the position like others until finishes his plans and goals. This is an fluke chance he got and will takes the maximum out of it, and the beginning puts PM Ranil as a front runner get familiar with foreign politics and specifically to get use to be with western world and other countries. Now he Achieved most of his dreams. Mostly travels the world than focussing on country’s matters and attending the parliament, because he knows that he wants get another chance. Their are many to fight for the upcoming presidential election. People thought and had a faith that he will be the best and takes the country to better future and he also same as others. Who will be the real son of a mother Sri Lanka to take over and gives the leadership to thuggish free, corruption free and crimes free group of cabinet ministers to makes the highly developed peaceful country under one flag one anthem majority Sinhalese Buddhist and multi national, religion and culture. Good Luck. Buddhusaranai.

    What else can we expect from an uneducated, untrustworthy bum like him, who did not resign when the courts clearly stated that he violated the constitution. Why Sarath Fonseka is not presenting an impeachment motion in the Parliament to remove this President.

    There was anomaly of 19th Ameadeant of Republic Constitution by 2015 January mandate that bunch of leaders that headed of that accountability by MS, RW, CBK, JVP, TNA, MC, JHU and section of SLFP led by certain group .
    The 19th ameadeant was totally in wrong track by UNP leaderships was headed by Ranil Wicks and CBK. By and large that Misusing and abusing power by constitution was no legitimacy of people mandate won by MS .
    By the way that mishandling political -power was/is accountability is not individual matter, it was pool work that team including local lumpen classes of political parties of represtaitaive of that UNP JVP and TNA.
    And Foreign hegemonies of an Intelligences Services of that USA UK EU Japan and Indian deeply engaged by their intellengt services operation inside Island for regime change and undermined principle norms of country democracy by RW of UNP CBK and MS leadership.
    While it was heavily funded by those agencies for regime change by ousted MR and alliances.
    Needless to say 19th Ameadeant of Constitution is/was products of political coup behind grand alliance against WILL of People of Sri Lankan..
