Early presidential poll will deny MR two years of his first term - JVP

  • 26 Oct 2009 03:40:43 GMT

    [If Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa wins a second term at an early presidential election two years ahead of the scheduled time, he will have to forfeit two years of his first term,]

    He can easily make up for the lost two years by abolishing the Executive Presidency during the last days of his 2nd term and make his entry to Parliament as PM.

    What no one knows is what will happen four years from now.

    NO. INCORRECT. These JVP parrots do not know anything correctly. ( Although they think they know averything) . They do not want to learn anything because they are the pundits of everything.

    MR will NOT loose anything. He can hold election any day after 4 years and wait to take oath until he completes his current session. Chandrika lost 1 year in her second chance because she took oath 1 year in advance without knowing the law and no body advised her against it. This fact is clearly given in the said verdict by Supreme Court.

    These JVP parrots try their best to mislead people. Always faild.

    JVP, UNP shivering of the King Mahinda. If you are so smart why scared Mr Anura Kumara ?

    Forgot that you still have 2% of the votes ? Face any election if you can. People may select you as the Pesident of our country.

    You are absolutely correct. If not for the support of the JVP Trade Unions they would have been voices in the wilderness. They mislead Chandrika and now trying to on MR who is a seasoned and a crafty Politician.

    Shivering my foot,No politician shivers in Mother Lanka, MR crookishly won the presidency by conniving with poor Velupillai Prabakaran (Contacting through Alles & Mangala) and Wimal Weerawangsa (playing on the electoral list denying UNP voters of their rights), MR got rid of Praba who trusted MR as an Angel,never dreamed but went down like a rat for cheating Honourable Ranil Wickramasinghe, see what Wimal Weerawangsa is going to be served by MR very soon. A Leader should be a fair and honest person like JR and honoured Leader who died as a statesman.

    MR is living in a baloon and very soon it will burst and fools will realise that there is a GOD above.

    Which ever government comes into power we as citizens do not gain, prices keep spiralling whilst the pockets of the pliticians fill. Inter Continental ownership is taken over by the MR & Co., Ceylan Towers ownership is taken over by the MR & Co. etc etc. so by the end of his term he can own half of Sri Lanka whilst we as citizens will have to swallow the polluted air in the Galle Face Green. What do we get by supporting these crooks.

    Mahinda cannot scrap the constitution single handedly. He should have 2/3 Majority to do so.

  • 27 Oct 2009 11:31:43 GMT

    Mahinda is the best crook that I have known in the recent history. He has managed to fool majority of the people all the time. This is because we sri lankans more often see things through racial perspectives. That is the reason why we are more happy with the president because he ended the war but how he ended it, nobody is any keen to know. The genocide he commited by killing innocent lives by collateral damages is unacceptable. Though I am relieve the terrorism is no more, a sane person will noway agree to genocide of a community to kill a leader.

    This is detrimental to the forward of the country, which is of immense prospect for growth. President Mahinda Rajapakse fool the fools by paying constant visit to temples and prelates. This is the guy who killed lasantha (Sunday Leader) and this is guy who silence all the critics by hook or by crook.

    Any coming election will humiliate jvp.

    it is time for people to decide their future leaders sans party politics.

    [The genocide he commited by killing innocent lives by collateral damages is unacceptable]

    There was NO genocide committed on the tamils. Are you trying to say that the GOSL killed each and every tamil that they saw??????

    [a sane person will noway agree to genocide of a community to kill a leader.]

    If each and every tamil was targetted and killed in the endeavor to kill VP THEN it would have been genocide. That DID NOT HAPPEN.

    VP had a civillian shield around him and some of those civillians would have got killed. Civillians do get killed in a war situation. That is not something unique only to Sri lanka. Look at WW1, WW2, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc etc etc. In a scenario of armed conflict civillians get killed but one is easily able to distinguish incidents of civillians getting killed and an all out genocide. In Rwanda there was genocide. There those of one ethnicity targetted those of the other ethnicity and killed them.

    If the GOSL committed genocide on tamils no tamil would have been able to live anywhere in Colombo they would have been rounded up and killed because they were tamils. Did that happen???? While the war was ravaging tamils continued to live all over the country without fear of being killed because they were tamils. If they had links to the LTTE then they risked getting killed.

    If you say tamils were harrased, yes, to an extent they had to undergo hardship. Some may call it harrasment, some may see it differently and call it inconvinience and hardship. Tamils had to undergo this hardship or harrasment because the LTTE were predominantly tamils and the moment LTTE cadres remove their uniforms there is absolutely no way if identifying a tiger cadre from an ordinary tamil civillian.

    The forces had to protect Sri Lankans be they sinhala, tamil or muslim from the ruthless barbaric LTTE cadres who were wrecking murder and mayhem all over the country. In their endeavour of protecting the Nation any tamil was seen as suspicious as the LTTE was masqurading as civillians. Can you blame the forces for that???? But the fact remains that the forces did not go killing each and every tamil that they saw. If they did so it would have been genocide.

    Do not try to blow a mountain out of a mole hill by saying the GOSL committed genocide on tamils.
