President Maithripala Sirisena today said everybody should keep in their minds that his blessing is essential to form a new government though some groups are dreaming of changing the numbers in Parliament and capture power to form a government.

Commenting on a statement by an opposition parliamentarian as well as a former minister who said the power of the government and the Presidency will be over after winning the support of 113 members in Parliament, the President pointed out that according to the Constitution, nobody can form a new government without his blessing.

He stated when the current government is forwarding its activities by removing all barriers, some empty vociferous people are trying to make disturbances.

The President was speaking at the occasion to open the new building of the Regional Education Office in Hingurakgoda today.

“Some media today have given space not for the people who work with a true feeling about the country, but for the empty vociferous people. Therefore, some people in the country have been given a misunderstanding about the government”, the President said.

“Some people raise these useless voices as they cannot bear the program of the current government carried out through protecting of the freedom and the democracy in the country by changing the way of the country which had been forwarding through fraud, corruption, waste and the family based authority, under my leadership as a leader who raised from the village”, he said.

    Yes we learnt about that in Jan 2015 when a minority government was installed making the democracy a mockery.

    Yes, till 2020. You need to realize that. That is what all the leaders should realize. You all are here for a shorter period. Unfortunately no one realize that when you all are in power. Everything is a cycle. If you have a chance, others will also get chance. So try to be smart within your limits. Even the last President was not good, he had done few things that people still admire. Try to do few such things that will last for long in people's mind.

    You are not aware that you can be thrown out from your chair by the party that has the majority. You do not know that? Without making big statements just see what is happening in the North? Where is the control that Gota had during the last regime? It is better to offer the whole of North that LTTE was fighting for without sacrificing the lives of poor policemen while you are trying to safeguard you and your families positions.

    We know you politicians like to "bless" everything and so far since independence of this country, we never saw anything blessed done to this country.

    Can anyone plunder the country without your blessings? Can those who plundered the country get away without your blessings? Are parts of the country sold to the Chinese without your blessings? These are the questions we the citizens want you to give honest answers. Remember.. the key word is Honest..

    Dear Mr. President. True. You may be able to bless a PM with minority seats as you've done before. But then you will be on your own to run a dictatorship as that PM will not be able to pass any bills to create or amend laws of the land.

    mr bean Tuesday, 01 August 2017 03:29 PM

    this guy is acting like Dumb Trump

    Bakaladasa Tuesday, 01 August 2017 03:52 PM

    Sad to see he's beginning to go nuts.He's blatantly saying that parliamentary majority is of no concern to him!Is the paper correctly quoting him?

    song Tuesday, 01 August 2017 06:28 PM

    Mr. President, why cant you rule the country in the same manner as Singapore?
