Maitriplala Sirisena’s first act, as the President was swearing in a Prime Minister overlooking the Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne already in place, which is in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka, undemocratic and inconsistent with his office as the President elected by the people, therefore ultra vires .
It is not whether Maitripala Sirisena honours his pre election agreements with Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunge, Madoluwave Sobhita, JHU,TNA and SLMC, that counts when he is elected the President of Sri Lanka, but whether he accepts to uphold the Constitution of Sri Lanka , honour it and respect it, and acknowledge his loyalty to the people at large which is sine qua non, and above keeping his pre-election agreements which would in any way affect his office as the President of Sri Lanka and service to the people.
With his swearing in as the President of Sri Lanka all personal agreements he had entered into previously vis à vis his election as the President, become null and void. More so, as the peoples’ vote to elect him to that high office is with the condition that his personal agreements do not in any way affect his loyalty and the service to the people, and in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka under which he was sworn in.
Ranil Wickramasinghe who he appointed as the Prime Minister in contravention of the Constitution of Sri Lanka, is an usurper of the rightful place of the Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne. Therefore Ranil Wickramasinghe’s appointment as the Pfrime Minister is illegal, Hence, the Ministers appointed by the usurper Ranil Wickramasinghe are holding those Ministerial positions illegally, therefore ultra vires.
These Ministers of the Illegal government of an usurper Prime Minster have instead of performing Ministerial services to the people , are going out side their duties as Ministers to accuse the previous government for bribery and corruption., and doing their best to accuse the former President and his close collaborators for imagined and baseless allegations with a view to take them to court and take away their civic rights or allow the international community to accuse them for war crimes.
They are breaking up families with the most cruel, arrogant and unsavoury members of the JVP such as Anura Kumara Dissanayake, and Vijitha Herath, and of the JHU Champika Ranawaka and Nishantha Sri Wanasinghe employed as President Maithripala Sirisena’s crime investigators.
All these activities are illegal and the President allowing such actions to be carried out by this government which has no legal standing , is aiding and abetting grievous errors to be committed against people respect by the people of the country by false accusations, personal defamations on unsubstantiated hearsay evidence., and character assassination which the worst of crime as it is done to bring down a popular political personality from the estimation of the people and make him unpopular.
The people of
the 8th January, 2015 voted
to elect a President and not elect Ranil Wickramasinghe as the Prime
Minister or have a UNP government in
place of the government of the UPFA which had a majority in the
Parliament. Above all, the people did
not elect a new President to accuse the former for bribery and corruption, and
all Crimes imagined possible to have been
committed. Sri Lanka
The President may visit
and received with great honour, but what
is more important is that the President is honoured and respected in his own
country and by his own people, which however
is not so evident. USA
The 58 per cent of the Sinhala Buddhists are being neglected and the people of the country, except those Tamils in the North and the Muslims in the East, did not expect a government under Ranil Wickramasinghe which is vindictive, arrogant, and revengeful toward the former President Mahinda Rajapakse very much loved and respected by the majority of the Sinhala Buddhist and perhaps by a handful of Tamils.
The majority of the people detest the racist Muslim Assad Sally and the Tamils of the TNA. The Sinhala Buddhists dislike Chandrika Kumaratunga , Champika Ranawaka, Madoluwawe Sobita and Athureliye Ratana, and the JVP band of investigators of corruption for Ranil’s pseudo government.
The people of Sri Lanka except the Tamils and Muslims when they voted to elect Maitripala Sirisena for a change did not expect to have along with Maithripala Sirisena a set of uncouth vindictive pseudo Ministers making allegations against their beloved President Mahinda Rajapakse who lost by less than 4 lakhs of votes.
On the 8 the January the people did not vote to elect Maitripala Sirisena to have a pseudo Prime Minister with pseudo Ministers doing what the people do not want them to do. They can do what they are doing now when they win an election and form a UNP Government ,and not now when there is already a UPFA government, and the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and his pseudo Ministers are a Constitutional nonentity..
The Pseudo Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera has taken the Centre stage and what he is doing is perhaps kept a secret even from the President Maitripala Sirisena. Mangala is a sworn enemy of the former President Mahinda Rajapakse and every thing he does may be detrimental to the wishes of the people, covertly aiming to eliminate Mahinda Rajapakse from Sri Lankan political scene, making the stage clear for UNP to settle down permanently in power.
Of course USA with its most unholy, undemocratic government in the World today, which will never help a developing country to progress independently towards development and prosperity, has seen with obvious satisfaction the regime change in Sri Lanka for which they may have secretly contributed.
The former USA Secretary of State Hillary Clinton breaking diplomatic etiquettes visited the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha ( who was in jail for corrfuption), but never came to Sri Lanka. The terrorist friendly American Ambassador for Sri Lanka Robert O’Black may have discouraged such a visit to
. Now the path is clear and the USA State
Secretary John Kerry finds Sri Lanka Sri Lanka
more civilized with a west friendly puppet government in place, and has therefore agreed to visit . Sri Lanka
In the meantime Ranil Wickramasinghe insults
delaying taking decisions on Chinese projects, re-examining, and re-evaluating them. China has already been accepted
into the USA-West orbit. Sri Lanka
Ravi Karunanayake, who has forgotten his past Cooperative Wholesale episodes is now more keen on character assassination, defamation and making continuous false accusations against former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajappakse. It was reported that, “ ….Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa cannot be given equal treatment during CID interrogation because he is now an ordinary citizen and not a VIP anymore.Therefore, he was nonplussed to see the CID visiting Gotabhaya Rajapaksa's residence to question him,……”What can you expect from this Christgian Tamil Ravi Karunanayake who during the military offensive against the LTTE terrorists ridiculed the Sri Lanka Armed Forces ?
He little knows that Gotabhaya Rajapakse will always remain a VIP in the hearts of the patriots of
In the mean time it has been reported that , “…….the Sri Lanka's Supreme Court taking up a fundamental rights petition filed against the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has issued notice on him to appear in court on March 31.
A three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice K Sripavan and Justices Priyasath Dep and Eva Wanasundera issued the order after having considered a fundamental rights petition filed by Duminda Nagamuwa, the candidate nominated by the Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) for the January 8, 2015 presidential election…..”
This is how the Maithripala Sirisena’s Yayapalana is now attempting to vilify, defame, and heap allegations against a much loved former President Mahinda Rajapakse. It is like a dog barking at the moon.
Is this what the voters expected of Maithripala Sirisena when they cast their votes to elect him as the President of Sri Lanka ?
It may have been the intension of the Tamils and Muslims who voted for him but there was a 58 percent Sinhala Buddhist voters who did not vote for him and they vehemently oppose all attempts at making false allegations, mudslinging and character assassination of the former President Mahinda Rajapakse who has not fallen from the respect, esteem and affection they have for him.
I have been told that many begin to say that they will not vote for the SLFP if they do not take the former President Mahinda Rajapakse as their Prime Minister candidate.
All actions taken so far by the illegal government of Ranil Wickramasinghe, elected the Prime Minister in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka are illegal. Therefore it is time the President Maitripala Sirisena takes stock of the situation and demand his Prime Minister to stop all actions that are being taken against the previous government and go ahead with some constructive work beneficial to the country and the people..
The President Maitripala Sirisena had contravened the Constitution of Sri Lanka in taking legislative powers into his own hand and re appointing an already impeached Chief Justice, and declaring the appointment of Chief Justice Mohan Pieris null and void, and appointing a new Chief Justice.
The President Maitripala Sirisena following the instructions of Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunga, Champika Ranawaka has given into the TNA removing check points, allowing any one to enter into the North, giving 1000 acres of land around
settlement of Tamils, appointed a civilian governor and promised reduction of armed forces. He has
still not made a statement on Chief Minister Wigneswaran’s resolution on
President Maitripala Sirisena has also favoured the Tamils respecting his pre-election agreement with the TNA. He has appointed a Tamil a citizen of
as the Governor of the Central Bank, He
has appointed a Tamil as the Chief Justice (second CJ as CJ Mohan Pieris
has still not been removed in terms of
the Constitution), He also took his presidential
oath before a Tamil Jude of the Supreme court.
Was all that to spite the 58 per cent Sinhala Buddhists who did not vote for him, thus sealing his affiliation to Tamils ?
President Maithripala Sirisena can put things right if he were to meet the former President and invite him to accept to be the Prime Minister Candidate of the SLFP. He would thus be able to do a magnificent job of work as the President of Sri Lanka with Mahinda Rajapakse as the Prime Minister and Gotabhaya Rajapakse as the Defence Secretary and go down history for his services to the country and the people..
