United National Front for Good Governance (UNFGG) was not an alliance formed only against former President Mahinda Rajapaksa but formed to fulfil the political reforms that could not be achieved in previous Parliament, Jathika Hela Urumaya General Secretary Patali Champika Ranawaka said today.

“This is not an alliance against Mahinda Rajapaksa. We were prevented from fulfilling certain political reforms, such as the case of appointing members to the Constitutional Council, due to lack of majority in Parliament. So, we decided to form an alliance to fulfil the political reforms promised at the last Presidential election,” he said.

Ranawaka said they would take steps to enact the Right to Information Bill and the National Audit Bill immediately after setting up the new government and added that action would be taken against corruption and fraud after setting up the Constitutional Council.

“We will release a new manifesto based on the President Maithripala Sirisena’s manifesto at the last Presidential Election,” he said.

Minister Ranawaka told a news conference that they would not allow certain forces that were attempting to turn back the peoples’ mandate at the general elections.

“We know that Mahinda Rajapaksa would not be satisfied with just an MP post or Premiership. We wanted to fight the force which is raising its head against peoples’ mandate,” he said.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    We have a duty to elect visionaries rather than people with only the debating skills to our August assembly so that this country would formulate strategies to get rid of our dependence on earnings from housemaids.

    You were one of them who supplied Oxygen to Mahinda Rajapaksa without chequing consequences. Now you are harvesting the result which is corrupted and undemocratics.

    Champika, please let us know your honest and genuine opinion on merger of North and East

    If Mahinda Rajapaksa wins with majority, he may revenge to those opposed him, including the president. He may even try to impeach president.

    They selected the appropriate line sensibly. Good Luck Champika.

    Well and good if you would take up those mentioned.

    This is the right way forward. We are going to have a 20 amendment and Sri Lanka will become a real developed country. Away with drug pedlers and MPs without proper education. Thumbs-up on Daily Mirror show that the people are with UNFGG
