The communiqué was signed by its Chairman Ven. Diviyagaha Yasassi Thera, Joint secretaries Mahanayake Ven. Trincomalee Ananda Thera of Amarapura Sri Dharmarakshitha Nikaya, and Prof. Ven. Agalakada Siri Sumana Thera.

The statement further said: "It is an accepted fact that there is a chaotic situation among the general public due to the unstable situation that has emerged in the country based on the prevailing crisis in the administrative machinery. This chaotic situation seems to have emerged largely due to those concerned focusing on personal agendas. Priority should be given to the objectives of the people.

The solution to this problem has to be sought according to the theory of Cause and Effect of Lord Buddha. This problem will not be solved when the of the others are going to be highlighted without seeking their own fault.

We urge the President, the Speaker and all political party leaders to act fast to ensure democracy in the country. Since there is consensus for an election from many factions, we feel an atmosphere should be in place for the conduct of a peaceful election.

    Why don't you men of the clothe keep to your vocation, attending to the spiritual needs of your followers and keep off the affairs of the state.

    Saradiel Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:35 AM

    I don't agree. As long as religious leaders are balanced and unbiased, they can instruct and try to control our corrupt uneducated and mad politicians. They can give some hope to people.

    Kim Tuesday, 20 November 2018 03:13 PM

    State is not above the spirituality here. It has always been that way. We are not a secular country. We are one of the most religious country in the world. Top of the list 99℅,

    Gemini Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:05 AM

    Please,please,please keep out of politics.

    Mr. Wonderful Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:10 AM

    There’s no place for religion in government. Religious leaders should not be getting involved in politics.

    This is not Europe.

    AshyD Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:21 AM

    YES! A Presidential Election..... but NOT with MR as the HORA Prime Minister. Appoint Anura Kumara Dissanayake as Prime Minister and have a Presidential Election.Give the JVP a window of a chance to run the government for a few days

    Machan Tuesday, 20 November 2018 11:32 AM

    Excellent idea.

    Buddhist Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:23 AM

    Why should it be Mahinda Ranil care taker Government, why not a majority ruling government? President created this trouble, so why not he come to the Parliament and let the Speaker call for vote to prove who has majority. Let the majority rule. Has the President got the guts to do this?

    Patric Tuesday, 20 November 2018 06:16 PM

    Because the majority is yet to be confirmed

    Roche Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:28 AM

    Please do not get in to politics thanks

    Siyarata Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:30 AM

    Why you guys ask Maha sangha to keep off politics? Does the church of Canterbury keeps aloof of politics in England? Sri Lanka is not secular. Remember!

    Ashok Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:34 AM

    Kindly Stay away From Politics

    Gajan Tuesday, 20 November 2018 09:36 AM

    Sri Lankan constitution does not provide you all with any political role in any shape or form. This country is not an Arabian desert kingdom.

    Bhathiya Tuesday, 20 November 2018 02:59 PM

    Also this is not a colony of secular western democracy. We have our own way of doing things shaped by our culture.

    pTric Tuesday, 20 November 2018 06:41 PM

    I don’t have that right too but i am free to make comments as I feel fit, so can you. So shut up and learn to make sensible comments

    RP Tuesday, 20 November 2018 10:13 AM

    The chaotic situation can be sorted only by its creator the President. Not by the clergy or the people. I recall the Mahanayaka of Asgiriya issuing a statement two weeks back that President acted lawfully. The statement I guess was issued in ignorance. It is best for the clergy to look after their religious work

    ara Tuesday, 20 November 2018 10:15 AM

    looking at the comments the people seems ok with the current crop of MP's behaving like animals

    Samboo Tuesday, 20 November 2018 10:21 AM

    President has violated the constitution.No one is above law.It should be corrected

    Thamarai Tuesday, 20 November 2018 10:24 AM

    There is no consensus for an election now. If you want, press for a presidential election.

    Ghs Tuesday, 20 November 2018 10:31 AM

    All due respect to the monks who should preaching good governance. Unfortunately you’ll still supporting MR political agenda instead of criticizing his and his gangs unacceptable behaviors towards the nation. Please advise MR to resign first if he is genuine and then you’ll go

    rocky Tuesday, 20 November 2018 02:43 PM

    If you do not like Anura Kumaara as PM how about Sambandan? He is much more worthy and reliable than Mahinda the rogue!

    patric Tuesday, 20 November 2018 06:45 PM

    Is he now? His role as the leader of oppostion so has been to look after tamil issues only

    Alex Tuesday, 20 November 2018 03:43 PM

    Keep away from politics. You are the number 1 trouble to the country.

    TONY Wednesday, 21 November 2018 09:03 AM

    MR DID NOT ACCEPT RW'S CALL TO EVERYONE IN PARLIAMENT TO JOIN HIS GOVT AND WORK FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PEOPLE, HE EVEN SPLIT THE SLFP BY ENCOURAGING THE JO. SO BETTER NOT TALK OF ANY OF THE POLITICIANS TO WORK FOR THE COUNTRY
