This Presidential Race Is A Battle Between Democracy And Autocracy: UNP

“Sri Lanka’s political opposition, led by the United National Party is seeking systemic change at this election. Nine years of the Rajapaksa family and its nepotism and corruption has taught us all deep lessons about the way this nation is governed. It has taught us that systems can ruin individuals and individuals can bring an entire country to the brink of ruination. The Opposition in this election will therefore, include all of the forces that stand against Rajapaksa rule.” said the UNP today.

Ranil Wickremesinghe 1Issuing a statement the UNP said; President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s claim about the ‘files’ prove that in his administration bribery and corruption is not only tolerated but it is also actively encouraged.”

“The reaction of the public to the news of the common candidacy has proven beyond all doubt that the people have grown greatly weary of Rajapaksa rule.” the UNP further said.

We publish below the statement in full;

It was long foretold, not in the stars but in the minds of all righteous and just citizens of this country that the 2015 presidential election would be a historic and decisive contest.

Presidential contests have traditionally been battles between the two main parties, each of which fields its own candidate in the race. After nine years of Mahinda Rajapaksa‘s rule, it was incumbent that the battle lines were redefined in order to effectively challenge the current morass of political leadership in Sri Lanka. The election before us therefore is not merely about choosing the next president. There is a much greater choice that faces the voter in January 2015. This presidential race is a battle between democracy and autocracy. Between corruption and good governance. Between the rule of law and impunity. It will decide whether Sri Lankans will enjoy peace with dignity and equality or peace of the conquered and oppressed. The regime of President Mahinda Rajapaksa has decreed that this electoral battle will be fought between the forces that stand for democracy and freedom and those that seek to push Sri Lanka into the black hole of dictatorship and oppression. So vile, so destructive has been his nine year tenure in office. Sri Lanka’s political opposition, led by the United National Party is seeking systemic change at this election. Nine years of the Rajapaksa family and its nepotism and corruption has taught us all deep lessons about the way this nation is governed. It has taught us that systems can ruin individuals and individuals can bring an entire country to the brink of ruination. The Opposition in this election will therefore, include all of the forces that stand against Rajapaksa rule. We count among our number the worker unions and academics, civil society and journalists, political parties on the left, right and centre of the ideological divide. It also includes members of President Rajapaksa’s ruling party, members of his cabinet that have watched his administration up close and realised that a third term of Rajapaksa governance will spell doom for the motherland. The common opposition led by the UNP and now joined by SLFP stalwarts realises that before we can operate once more as free and vibrant proponents of our political causes, we must ensure the existence of a democratic space. In nine years of Rajapaksa rule, this space has shrunk. The recent blackmail threat by no less than this country’s head of state Mahinda Rajapaksa, indicates the darkness of his rule, his dismissive attitude towards corruption and his twisted notions of loyalty. Angered by news of his ministers’ defection, the President claimed he had “files” on all those who quit his Government, but insisted he would not use them. The claim raises big questions. Why are these files being hidden from the public and law enforcement? How many more files does the President have on his own party members? Why do these files surface only when these members oppose his dictatorial rule? President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s claim about the ‘files’ prove that in his administration bribery and corruption is not only tolerated but it is also actively encouraged. This regime has stolen elections, not by stuffing ballot boxes but by thwarting and abusing the electoral process. It has rendered the judiciary a powerless puppet, existing to serve only the ruling family and its whims. Dissent has been brutally crushed. Political parties have been decimated by the Government’s twin tactics of intimidation and coercion. Democracy first, with all its imperfections. And all else shall follow. This is why the UNP has made the momentous and historic decision to endorse the legitimate Secretary General of the SLFP as the common opposition candidate. It was an unprecedented move of solidarity with our historic political rival. It is also an indication of the dire situation our country is facing and the realisation, across the party that this is no time for partisan, expedient politics. Victory in this election will bring a divided, fractured and wounded country together again. The victory of the common opposition candidate and the abolition of the executive presidency will herald a return to vibrant and diverse political expression. The reaction of the public to the news of the common candidacy has proven beyond all doubt that the people have grown greatly weary of Rajapaksa rule. We urge all those who still keep faith with this corrupt, nepotistic regime. Hear the voices of the Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim people who want to live in this country without violence. Hear the call of the Buddhists, Christians and Hindus who wish not to be mired in religious tension and hatred. Listen to the corporate sector, public servants and those who are self employed who only wish for a small share of the economic prosperity enjoyed by the ruling cabal. We call on all of you to hear the voices of our people. Do not let them down at this hour. History shall judge us on where we stand at this juncture.

    The Curse of the Executive – the so called “wonder of Asia” (A MUST READ)

    By Dr C.M. Silva

    Lankans were relieved and thrilled to get rid of the LTTE in ’09 and had enormous expectations of progress and good governance. The credit of this should obviously go to the Rajapaksa government as well as all those who fought on the battle front. With 2/3rd’s parliamentary majority which may have been
    achieved by buying over corrupt opposition politicians, still gave total power to do good to Lanka, but unfortunately this power has been used to get more power, breaking all norms of decent standards and governance.

    Every aspect of governance was abysmal. The war and national hero Sarath Fonseka was punished in a dubious manner using all government manipulations in a despicable manner sending him to prison to take a personal vendetta against him. This occurred while govt. is providing luxuries to the terrorist leader KP. Fourteen charges were brought against the chief justice against all norms of justice to chase her getting universal condemnation across the commonwealth. 1000 page document was read, interpreted, digested and decision given overnight, unheard in legal channels with forcing mostly uneducated MP’s to sign a blank document. A murderer would have had more rights than our chief justice in defending herself. The executive was bulldozing all, just to achieve simply their objectives. When the government continued to ignore many mega crooks in their ranks, they framed CJ with dubious charges.

    It is true that the country has improved in many aspects. This was naturally expected with the end of the war and most would have happened under any government. North East rehabilitation, tourism expansion, road network (despite the enormous cost), walking/recreational areas, beautification of Colombo are welcome developments.

    Despite the end of the war which wasted unavoidable billions, the rampant plundering of the country multiplied simply filling the pockets of politicos. The purpose of governance appeared to make its party ministers and MP’s billionaires while the country was bleeding. State debt rose to Rs.1 trillion. 55 state institutions which had a profit of Rs.32.3 billion in 2005 caused a loss of Rs.107 billion despite over 100 ministerial posts. Total foreign debt which was Rs.3589 billion up to 2009 due to the 30 year war and over 60 years of post-independence development was doubled to Rs.6791 billion in mere 3 years by 2012. Mega white elephants just to satisfy the ego of the governing clan was pumped in to Hambantota. Harbour rock blasting Rs.9 billion, Tele-Cinema Park Rs.2 billion, cricket stadium Rs.700 million decimating SL cricket were some of them. The biggest disaster the Mattala airport cost Rs.39.6 billion and even a fool would have known that it is pure stupidity but no one questioned the judgement of the executive. It recorded a laughable 40 passengers by April ’13 and it is said that the beetle seller was earning more than the airport. Still no questions asked of this debacle and no one guilty. Thankfully Lanka was spared at least Rs.500 billion cost of staging the commonwealth games just because presidential family members pushed for it ignoring every basic element of intelligence in staging such event. The games bid costing Rs.784 million simply went down the drain, with no inquiry. President’s expenses for a year is Rs.8.6 billion which is more than the British queen. President’s pool of vehicles alone cost Rs.5.1 billion while vehicles for ministers cost Rs.6 billion. Opposition politicians have claimed that Lanka has been plundered Rs.870 billion from 2005-2009 due to corruption.

    Jumbo cabinet of over 100 is costing Rs.2.6 billion almost every govt. department losing money. The ministers were profiteering also by selling their tax free car permits earning more millions to them. Rs.17 Billion was lost due to oil hedging fiasco. President’s UN trips which had invitations for only a handful but over 100 of presidential henchmen and for their limousines cost Rs.1.4 billion but interestingly the president says ‘everyone should be accountable when spending public money’. IIFA event costs were Rs.1.4 billion and president’s inauguration cost another 1 billion. COPE has reported Rs.300 billion fraud in govt. institutions. The roads building has directly filled the pockets of all decision makers who continued to take mega loans which the poor will have to pay over centuries. How come when Kottawa to Galle road cost Rs.900 million/km while Kadawatha to Kerawalapitiya was costing a whopping Rs.7500 million/km? Yes, with inflation the costs can go up may be by 5-10% but not over 800%. Never in Lanka such plundering has occurred but the govt. gave only Rs.333 for displaced families due to rain in Colombo. Maharagama cancer institute had said they do not have 20 essential medications and Colombo hospitals have said they do not have chemicals to do basic tests. If half the cost of presidential trip to UN summit could be saved, it would have provided enough money for cancer patients in Lanka for drugs for next 20 years.

    The question is why not a single inquiry or investigation has not occurred for any of the mega blunders? When the core of the govt. is involved in all these how can they investigate themselves? Ex-president Mrs. Chandrika Bandaranayake said the obvious that politics is a mega business and 80% of politicians are simply crooks. No wonder therefore they ‘invest’ multi millions some going up to 300 million during elections simply to get elected by hook or by crook to ‘serve the poor’ because they know that they could
    earn 10-100 times more. Sadly the voters still continue to vote for crooks who have biggest ‘cut outs’ not knowing that they are the biggest sharks stealing their money.

    Law and order of the country is almost non-existent. It is strongly suspected that white van disappearances were politically motivated as when ordinary citizens caught some of them, they were released on directions of defence ministry. Most high profile murders, robberies, crimes, thuggery are directly connected to government politicians either centrally or in the provincial administration. This gives an indication of the calibre of the current politicians promoted by the government and its leadership. Even if ever justice occurred, it is because of foreign pressure as is the case of Tangalle tourist murder. Interestingly most of them are closely connected to the ruling family including Julampitiya Amare who killed 2 JVP supporters. Rather than protecting the law, even AG’s office dismissed 3 cases against prominent politicians against all norms of procedure. More than 100 politicos and provincial councillors have been implicated in crimes and more than 50 local government politicians are involved in drug trafficking. This includes 8 ministers, 5 deputy ministers, 5 parliamentarians, 12 provincial councillors, 40 mayors and members of the provincial councillors. The biggest heroin detection was released via the prime minister’s office making mockery of law and order. The policemen who did their duty by raiding a brothel of a govt. henchman were transferred soon after this as punishment. Another policemen who charged a deputy minister for speeding not only was assaulted but ultimately was forced to leave the police. The law enforcement who eliminated the LTTE have been unable to catch a single culprit for the murder of 27 journalists including Lasantha Wickrematunge. This confirms one thing which is, the government is directly responsible – criminals, Judge, Jury are all the same hence
    ‘unable to find culprits’. In many instances the influence of politicians on local police means no one is arrested even with well documented assaults on ordinary public. The futuristic city of Hambantota, the lord mayor is a gun carrying thug, again close to the ruling family. These are their standards the highest in government and no wonder today the biggest criminals are in the government itself. 2/3rd’s of Parliament MP’s do not have even Advance Level qualifications while over ½ do not have even basic O/L qualifications. They are not suitable even for labourer’s jobs but most are ministers running, ruining and plundering the country. No wonder all govt. departments are running at mega losses. Turning a blind eye to all these is the furthest you would expect from a true statesman. The president’s scant respect to the law of the land was obvious when a journalist who had a well-known arrest warrant was photographed with the president openly.

    Internationally, sadly the president is so unpopular and finds it difficult to visit many western countries apart for UN meetings. UN inquiry, commonwealth head of state meetings were absolute disasters due to many bungled issues including dismissal of ex CJ.

    The judgement of the president should give direction and leadership to the country. If this judgement says that a man who ties another man to a tree in addition to many despicable acts/incidents should be made the Minister of Public Relations, is it simply right to ask if this sort of judgement could even be suitable to run a mental asylum!

    The executive presidency has become a curse of the land with executive powers bulldozing all decent norms of governance to benefit a few and family. Every aspect of good governance is non-existent and has been detrimental to the country, when in fact the country was in ideal position to exploit the benefits of peace.

    Country needs a decent, responsible, credible and open statesman. Countries’ laws must not be the law of the jungle, wealth should not be family wealth, power should be with the Parliament and its people, judgements should be based on the law of the land and not the law of the few, professionalism of the police should be restored and elections should be on a level playing field, mega corruption should not bleed Lanka and above all Lanka deserves a decent standard of governance.

    Voters- over to you!

      Your powerful and exhaustitive resume is insufficient if it were to
      remain within CT and the vociferous Comments of and on – it needs
      broadcasting in the vernacular in todays technology for a very wider
      audince in the hinterland where Voters are dumfounded. FB will be banned shortly.

      I seriously suggest that the University staff undertake a scheme
      where they produce a CD / DVD in a format that is most common usage,
      depciting in digital graphgics the CRIMES OF THE REGIME with comical
      skits etc. which will teach the Voter better than words – in pictures:
      for example – the beautification of Colombo contrasted with ruination
      of areas in villages of the opposing politician, the Airport at H-tota
      with the falling down schools, the Nos. that were closed etc.

      Time is limited. A step better than printed (Common sense) phamplets.
      Political prties may have gone into this venture secretively, if they
      guts (RW pl. take note)

        “I seriously suggest that the University staff undertake a scheme where they produce a CD / DVD in a format that is most common usage,”

        This could be put into flash drives, and as a bonus can include the Digital Version of the Common Sense Sri Lanka 2014.

        Only a short time left. Time is of essence.

      “The question is why not a single inquiry or investigation has not occurred for any of the *******mega blunders*******? When the core of the govt. is involved in all these how can they investigate themselves? “

      This is why Tamils asked the UN to step in. What would be the outcome of their investigation?????

      Double standard talk.

      There was so much waste took place during purchase for the war. Sumanthiran still in that case against Brother Prince. Sinhala intellectual not ready to participate, but ready to justify it, because it was a most wanted Tamils wipe out, as “the war which wasted unavoidable billions”.

      When Shirani’s case to parliament, only part refused to oppose that was UNP, saying the parliament has every right to dismiss (that was not impeach) Shirani. For attending to a court order issued by Sriskandaraja, Sampanthan is still under investigation by the parliament. Only people lost on that are Sriskandarajah’s family. Shirani has offers by joint opposition to EP post, justice minister and others, at the same time she was many times considered by Royal Government to ambassador post. Sumanthiran was only one talked in Parliament with some facts and figures, which some foreign embassies indicated that the peach was noted. Now mushrooming Sinhala Intellectuals are using it for election campaign.

      When Sirima lost on the election; JR put her in the prison, for having stood against him on the election. There are war crime accusations against Fonseka. He should have been investigated for that. But he was investigated only for the corruption he doing with the help of his son – in “low” for the war time wastes and put in the prison. What is wrong with that? Is that another case of “the war which wasted unavoidable billions?”

      Sirimavo brought the Executive Prime Minister constitution. JR brought the Executing President constitution. King only brought the 18A. How is that it becomes he is the only one against the Sinhala Intellectuals but not the other two? Just because his Sinhala Intellectuals know to attract the Sinhala Buddhists mush better than the UNP Sinhala Intellectuals? Is that why, after all these time blaming the UPFA for all sort of problems, now begging all of them to come to UNP? Athuriya, Champika, JVPyers, Kakeem(Who rubber stamped the firing letter of Shirani) .. …aren’t these the one put the foundation for UPFA rule? Chandrika is the one made the King as the Prime Minister in her term. Now the talk is about the King Maker Chandrika’s latest King Making achievement that she made Maithiri as the CC. There will be a day she will be stop talking about that too.

    Is he (Ranil) really thinking he can have a piggy back ride to be the Executive Prime Minister of Sri Lanka?

    • 1

      Nope. Ranil will be selected by Maithri and be the prime minister. During 100 days Ranil will restore and make adjustments to the Parliament laws and judicial independence which will return the presidency powers to the Parliament. After 100 days Maithri will dissolve the Parliament and will start the Parliament elections again.

      So after the 100 days Ranil maybe able to remain as prime minister, Maybe not. After changing the laws the parliament has to choose their prime minister which is a new law…

      This only the reason Maithri chosen Ranil because Ranil can bring proper parliament systems which was disputed by MR govt. Now Ranil has to do his job during 100 days and i think he will surely complete them.

      During CBK-Ranil regime and Ranil has done no corruption and not even misused the Government assets, Only CBK has done corruption and misused the state resources also mismanaged the public assets. Therefore Ranil has not misused them, Now Sri Lanka people are blaming him what CBK has done.

      Think twice before blaming RW. He is intelligence and reliable leader, I assume he would build Sri Lanka like Singapore with superpower leading economics as well he would also reduce the jobless and poverty in order to avoid harms to the economy.

    Kau Jayasooriya has no LTTE baggage,, No brothers who are rouges or commodity mafiosa who suck the blood of the poor…

    He is a Sinala Buddhist who is acceptable to the majority,

    He is not a suck ass of the West. and has a clean slate.

    But the UNP leader didn’t give him the OK because Karu had a good chance of coming close.

    Ranil didn’t want that,

    Keselwatta Kid on the other hand knows that he is literally a kid trying to do a man’s job.

    And he is has being spoilsport…

    And the inhabitants won’t trust him after what the dad did to them..

    Now the discredited Ex President has become the darling of the Intelligentsia , and the Anglicans,

    But Vellalas are smarter.

    TNA leader has backed out and wants to consult the Tamil Intelligentsia,

    Sambandan has probably realized that being neutral is better than backing a loser yet again.

    If Sambandan keeps the Vellala camp in neutral and the President wins, may be a reasonable solution to Tamils grievances is possible.

    And the Reverend and Surendran who hitched the TNA to Ranil’ through his UNP London branch , will be off his back too.

    The above is Ranil Gandhi’s personal draft. No doubt about that!

    Mr. Gandhi refusing to let the UN team coming inside and investigate the Genocide, more serious the usual corruption. There will be not internal investigation. His team mates, Athiriliye, Harsha, Sajit has promised “no leader, no commander, no soldier will be charged” for the gravest crimes committed in the human history against the women and the children corned with the military arms.

    This new regime is refusing to talk about investigating the war crime. It refused to talk about it when it went to Parliament. The new regime is refusing to talk about investigating Shirani’s dismissal by Wimal. It refused to talk about it when it went to Parliament. But ready to talk about only Mokan Peiris mistakes, Mokan Peiris is only a de facto CJ. Mr. Gandhi knows if that was investigated, she will be getting her CJ post back again. Fonseka has been promised for return of all his batches and salary, pension…. But nothing for Shirani, because e she is a personal enemy of Mr. Gandhi.

    “Hear the call of the Buddhists, Christians and Hindus who wish not to be mired in religious tension and hatred.”

    Only me and Christian Ranil Gandhi know the Richad’s, Kaheem’s teams are entangled in the religious fights.

    “Hear the voices of the Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim people who want to live in this country without violence.”

    So other than Amarasiri”s Native Veda’s the Arabians, The South Indians, the North Indians like to live in peace in their migrant land(or the Kallaththauni Land) It looks like the old regime, Native Vedas, and Amarasiri are one race, the trouble makers! Is this is prove to make sure that the Muslims are not Tamils?

    UNP’s message is very positive,statesman like,Inclusive and forward thinking.

    This message need to be taken to every nook and corner of Srilanka ASAP.

    Even after the elections Ministry of reconciliation should create and carry a positive campaign about understanding each other, being sensitive to each others needs and appreciative of each others culture.

    Giving space for each other to grow their cultures and language,Celebrate each others festivities.

    Create democracy at grass root level and devolve powers all the way from Grama Niladhari level to Provincial council and parliament.

    Lead by examples.

    Multiculturalism is a gift which we have not learned to appreciate.

    Money well spent rather than building military capabilities and cultural paranoia.

    I am not sure how many readers of the Colombo Telegraph understand the deep disappointment and sadness of the members of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and all those who understand and respect the ideology, political programs and policy positions that it has espoused.

    Many had deep misgivings as to the suitability of Mahinda Rajapaksa as a leader when the question of the misappropriation of tsunami aid came to light. However following the end of the war many of these misgivings were forgotten and drowned by the hope that the Sinhala Buddhist people at last had a king-like ruler blessed with a vigorous lineage whose dynasty it was hoped would rule with justice and wisdom.

    It did not take very long for these hopes to be dashed which happened as soon as the way the election commissioner was treated before all the world no sooner were presidential elections held and the by playing accomplice to this murder of democracy India our closest neighbor has set herself up for a dose of the same that she is just beginning to feel.
    The hoped for righteous, just and wise king has turned into something far less appealing and the hopes for a golden age of Sinhala Buddhist rule have been dashed. This fact has taken almost a decade to sink in and overcome hopes that the man may change and become the sage that all had hoped he would be.

    Now there is no room for doubt. The king has declared that should he lose the election he will once again “turn defeat into victory” just as he did with the help of India at his very first presidential election. The financial affairs and conduct of this monarch confirm the misgivings that arose when the tsunami fraud came to light and these misgivings now extend to the question of what happened to the massive amounts of gold that had been stolen from the Tamil people by the LTTE and the mysterious manner in which attempts were made to move illegal ivory from certain African nations into global black markets through Sri Lanka apparently in return for golden favors granted by these nations to the king. These are now matters of common knowledge amongst children and will form parts of folklore that embellish the history of Sri Lanka’s attempted 21st century royal dynasty.

    The SLFP is a party in mourning not only because of this ugly financial conduct but also because the concentration of power in one family has prevented other noble families within the party from using political power to improve the lives of the Sinhala Buddhist people who voted them to power. These people have been languishing in neglect for close to a decade and their sorrow and disappointment knows no bounds.

    It is this boundless sadness and disappointment that has led the General Secretary of the SLFP himself to come forward with the fullest support of his party to come forward as an alternative SLFP candidate and put right the wrongs that all the world can see. The SLFP has always been a magnanimous and dignified party and its leadership has never hesitated to correct its mistakes. IT is natural therefore that it has invited all right thinking persons from all political persuasions and parties to support it in its task of cleansing the islands polity of the sickness that has arisen and restore the liberal democratic traditions of tolerance, non violence and broad inclusiveness while standing firmly in defense of national sovereignty that it and the peoples right to advance their political aspirations through democratic means that this party has always espoused and advanced.

    This is not a triumphal or vindictive or vengeful movement. It is a movement based on contrition and the disappointment and sadness generated by dashed hopes and a deep sense of responsibility that what has been allowed to go wrong due to high but misplaced hopes must now be put right and the nations made whole and healthy once more.

    May the noble party of the people succeed in this task and let us all – regardless of our political persuasions and political affiliations – wholeheartedly support the SLFP in this righteous and profoundly Buddhist agenda. May we succeed and may we go on to build a nation where all beings may be happy and live in peace and may the tree of righteousness be planted on this island this Uduvap Poya day

    Is that UNP is/was Democratic Party? Since 1977 until his failure 1994 what type of politic of Democracy practice by the leaders of UNP, that JRJ, R. Premadas and Ranil Wickramsinghe ( 2001 to 2004)during 20 year rule and by governances?

    By doing UNP policies that enlarge WEALTH disparities of capital development by key to control foreign capital and haves and have notes gap more widen than past among people of Island.

    Ethnic hearted and advocated by anti- Tamil riots 1977,1979,1981 and 1983 by UNP. The Result of that UNP Politically encourage separatism of LTTE Terror gun rule politics to undermine democratic order.

    While indirectly promoted and encourage war politics by UNP that INJECTED to country democratic frame work had been challenges by TERROIST POLITICS IN NORTH by TAMIL-LTTE AND SOUTH OF TERROIST BY JVP EXTERMISM OUTFIT.

    The manipulated of political platform by UNP distorted life and pattern of democracy, that created vital conflicts against principle interest of Young democracy in Island.

    The notorious crime against, that anti-methods of Democracy by UNP that committed crime against Human rights and as well as Rights and Norms of Democratic way of Politics in Island.

    Up to now which that UNP on side of UNP there is No democratic accountability and responsibility by Party its leadership Ranil W…, of Its political class and its politics for The people of our nations.

    I think as national political party of UNP and in their deeds witness that us as Leadership of Party has not yet that unrepentant or unremorseful of past act of anti-democracy against people of SL.

    UNP is a PART that play by Autocracy and that apply corruption and nepotism to surrender values of Democracy in different means and ways 20 odd years.. that rule and ruin democracy ..

    Consequently that UNP -leadership that undermine norms and RIGHTS democrat valued by applied AUTOCRACY RULE during their 20 years by their UNP regime era.
