it is not about alternative. there is no justification to say since no alternative for MR can do whatver he wants. we should tell wrong is wrong.
I'm NOT for this amendment.
MR should at least stick with his 2005 Mahinda chinthan where he promised to abolish presidential system and plant a premiership system.
Replacing Presidency with Premiership is also not the answer.-IMO
Executive Presidency is OK -esp. for a country like SL -but with the proper checks & balances.
But my point is this. When we are unhappy with something -next step chosing an alternative.
For me -in the last Prez election only feasible choice was MR.
If the same lot runs again today it will be the same.
Hope new alternative leadership contenders will emerge during the next term.
It seems the average Sri Lankan doesnt mind a dictatorship.
This was evident from 1970 Sirimavo govt onwards.
