Wiggie To Take Oaths Before MR In Colombo On Monday

The first Chief Minister of the Northern Province Justice C.V. Wigneswaran will be sworn in before President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Colombo on Monday (7).

Northern Chief C.V.Wigneshwaran

The oath-taking ceremony will take place at Temple Trees at 9 a.m.

The decision was made following a meeting of TNA Leader R. Sampanthan and President Rajapaksa at breakfast this morning.

The other TNA provincial ministers of the Northern Provincial Council will be sworn in before Chief Minister Wigneswaran on October 11.

The TNA had previously called on the President to administer Wigneswaran’s oath in Jaffna. However the President yesterday swore in the Central and North Western Province Chief Ministers at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday.

    Good luck Wiggie.

    Please set an example to all others in the south. A lot of Sri Lankans are hopeful you would do just that.

    And that you would promote brotherhood among all Sri Lankans.

    And please move on to the national stage when you can soon after.

    The whole of Sri Lanka needs leadership, not just the Northern province.

    Cheers!

      No chance, the Sinhala/Buddhists will drag him to their level and beat him and destroy his integrity.

      The TNA was very stubborn on this issue. They did not want the NPC Chief Minister to take oath in front of the ex-military Governor. Finally they won the case. Way to go TNA, never give up. You have many more tasks in front, keep going.

    At a time this country needs a person who respect the rule of law, a man with a honesty and integrity, your election to the key public office gives some hopes to the people betrayed by two-faced machiavellians.

    We honestly believe that you would set an example to others in the South to follow.

    Practice what you talk and set a bench mark that would invite people in the South to open their eyes and to reject all anti-social elements from main stream politics. This country has suffered enough for a long period of time.

    Great! He’s living up to his reputation as an intelligent & just gentleman. This gesture shows that neither he nor the TNA is addressing those idiotic demands of extremist Tamils who essentially happen not to be Sri Lankan(who had never set foot on SL soil, but come up with an opinion on every single thing done in SL i.e. perfect example being Tamils for Obama )It also shows that what they wish for a unified SL & they’re ready to work towards a unified future

    On face value a welcome move. But will Sinhala chauvinism, the creature of the Rajapakse regime, simultaneously increase racial
    tensions by working Weerawansa-Ranawaka’s fascist outfits on demos
    against the event?

        Vasudeva, will be a better fit than Chandrasiri. Vasudeva was one chap who always stood for the rights of the other. He even said, the Tamils should be allowed to secede, through a referendum, this would keep the South in check. The man, ahead of his time.

        NV, having read your contributions to the forum, i think your comment is said in jest.

        Dear Native V,

        My good friend Vasu has good credentials for the job – but not the necessary influences with The Brothers. If she consents Prof.
        Savitri Gunasekera will be an eminent choice from the angle of
        a greater role for educated women in governance. Her reputation for justice to all communities is impeccable. Tamils will welcome her across the ethnic barrier. Or, if our political culture has reached that maturity, our other friend – the experienced and
        affable Bradman Weerakoon, if his health and his inclination consenting. I haven’t heard of our friend Lionel Fernando, former Jaffna GA for a while since we last met at Dinner at Moratuwa years ago. Lionel has a very large group of well-wishers in Jaffna and the Tamil community for his excellent PR and exceptionally friendly nature while he served there during trying times.

          To the readers, a reminder that when his mother died in Jaffna, the Community insisted that her funeral be held there and so it was done.

            I am surprised the assorted Muslim Zealots in the blog did not
            come out with their in-built curses against Native Veddah for not including a Muslim in his list for NPC Governor. The ideal would have been Ganda Azwer now that Paisa Mustapha is busy accumulating filthy lucre. Powzie is the other choice – who has all the talents to increase drug consumption in the NP to the delight of Kudu Mervin and Duminda – the Monitor.

      The lady is doing her duty and the noose is tightening slowly but surely:In a release on “Key US Outcomes at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) 24th Session”, the Department of State has said the US “echoed the High Commissioner’s concerns, in particular regarding restrictions on freedom of expression, attacks on human rights defenders and journalists, and interference with the judiciary.”
      The US has said it also noted the High Commissioner’s assessment that, in the absence of a meaningful progress on post-conflict accountability, calls for an international inquiry will persist.

      The GOSL did not want Wiggie to take oath from Mahinda; it was TNA and Wiggie who insisted on it because that is the normal procedure for Provincial Governors. So the truth is the opposite to what you make it sound like, namely that MR forced Wiggie to take the oath from him thus an embrassement.

    It’s a good compromise between the president who was invited to Jaffna and you. There is a saying that mountain won’t go to Mohammed.

    Extremists in the South are waiting to discredit and insult you. We are sure you will rise above them. You are the most honest person to lead Tamils after SJV Chelvanayagam though many in the South may not agree with his political views. Other eminent lawyer politicians have been dishonest and were only interested in ministerial portfolios and perks.

So, be true to your oath and to your brotheren and last but not the least a true son of Srilanka.

        TNA has started well, they achieved their aim of not taking oath under Military Governor.

        Now they must fight for bigger battles that includes removing the Northern Governor, Land/Police Powers, Removal of Military etc etc..

          Could one explain the why such importance was placed on not taking Oath from a Military governor and instead taking it from the President? Is it a question of legitamacy, where taking it from a Military Governor can later be manipualted by the GOSL as putting the Northern PC under military rulership?

            simply, pride… the army brought about the end of the ‘ their sun god ‘ and their terror heroes… hence, if bows down and accepts the oath the ‘ tamil’s pride will be punctured ‘. this is the problem with the Sinhalese, tamils and muslims and the lankans!

          “Now they must fight for bigger battles that includes removing the Northern Governor, Land/Police Powers, Removal of Military etc etc..”

          There is nothing to fight except the withdrawal of the national army/navy because the rest is embedded in the provincial councils but to run it they need the finances.

          Don’t forget even in a federal system there is a national police, national land development authority over and above the provincial body and all foreign affairs by center only. This is where the bureaucracy comes in even in a decentralised setup.

    Very positive move, once again a Learned Gentleman has proven how to behave and how to accept the constitution. Well done Justice Wigneswaran. If the President truly wants to change he should appoint Justice Wigneswaran as the Chief Justice. At least now the present Cheap Justice should learn how a Learned Gentleman should behave and conduct himself. Justice Wigneswaran is showing the entire world that he is bound by the laws of the country and Justice but the appointment of the Cheap Justice itself proves to the world that the present Cheap Justice’s appointment is outside the law.

    In the available first opportunity the TNA has set examples in honouring pleges (the appointment of a Muslim to the Council), appointing educated and knowledgeable people as Ministers, in compromising on the swearing-in of the CM and most of all declaring that they look for political power sharing within an un-divided Sri Lanka. What more assurances the people of Sri Lanka need to have confidence in the TNA. The Southern Sinala politics should take these examples seriously and follow suit in their politics.

    Please- I can see a great catostrophe to be let loose on the Tamils through the Chief Minister.CJ.W has been appointed to take care of the issues of the Tamils in the NORTH.
    How come you guys are appealing to Chief Minister Wigneswaran to bring a settlement to your problems in the south.
    This is a rediculous request.Let him do the job for which the Tamils voted him for.He has a lot to accomplish.
    The south did not vote for him to take up their problems in the south.Go to your Chief Ministers of the south.Ask them to sought your problems and if they are smart they can help you with the unification of the entire country.
    If it fails the southern polity can take the heat from you.
    We don’t want any more heat from you guys.You guys will get lost dropping us like hot fried dhel.No back bone to stand up and fight together for a better life.

    Let him BE.

      “to be or not to be”
      It’s good to see someone is feeling the heat. The first parliament a tamil minister of public affairs made a statement that quite rightly angered SWRD and JR. Why don’t the tamil folk take a lesson from the Jewish folk who control world media, world finance apart from to mention the tip of the ice burg Einstein, Freud and over 200 discoveries in medicine? On top of it they have the gift of verbal virtuosity scoring at least 80 due to it. Gota seems to have observed in the US so he is very close to them. Neither Shrub ran nor does Obumer run the US. 80% of US top administrators are Zionist Jews and it is so with the UK. The malabaries in TN do better at education than the Tamils but they don’t yap in victory or defeat.Good luck

    Here are some interesting stats for the new Vellala CM.

    1871 Census,

    Sinhalas 1,670,207,Tamils 540,685. Arabs 163,516 Malay 7953, Kafirs 3835. European descendants and Half Castes 14,181. Europeans 5886.

    Total 2,406,262.

    The significance is that the Sinhala population has increased 10 times and the Arab Mlay combined has gone up more than 12 times.todate.

    Tamils only increased by 4 times, even with the of big influx of poor Economic migrants from Tamil Nadu..

    It is a fact that 30 year Terrorism of the LTTE had a significant effect.

    If these figures are extrapolated to the next 150 years, Sinhala poulation will be over 100 Million and the Tamils will be still 8 Million whilst the Muslims will be 25 Million.

    If the contry is divided into ethnic based enclaves how can this ginormous population be accommodated on an equitable basis in a small country like Srilanka?.

      “If the contry is divided into ethnic based enclaves how can this ginormous population be accommodated on an equitable basis in a small country like Srilanka?.”
      Sumane the incubator for wars. You lied regarding GDP for SL and a poor old tamils income of $2000 per year being twice that of the nation. So who is to believe you gassgemba?

      The statistical average of all the frogs is not equivalent to each and every frog.

      Should’nt this stat worry you? Even with this large numbers of Sinhalese the Sinhalese are looking for a Tamil to redeem them.

      What does this say about the Sinhala race?
