    Really? Why there was a need for him to chat? It explains something was not right.

    I think the UN attempt is non-productive. The Secretary General may have write a paper article (Sinhala newspaper) and then SIRA may understand.

    what is the validity of the election process of the nominated Maithripala Sirisena as candidate by a political party led by a foreigner? Maithripala Sirisena is an illegal President. Legally Mahinda Rajapaksa is the president.

    What nonsense are you saying?

    19th amendment is all about reducing the executive powers of President. Its active since 2015 and section 46)d clearly says that PM can hold the position unless resigns the office or ceases to be a member of parliament. No need to do law to understand the constitution even a grade 5 kid will understand it!

    This guy probably must be hallucinating.

    Yes. Repeat it enough times and even you might believe it. The public, however, are well aware of your nonsense. You have violated the constitution and democracy in our country.

    Done well.

    Maithripala Sirisena became president from a fake political party registered on British citizens name in Sri Lanka.

    This joke of president’s first biggest issue with this country was women running around without bras! Haha. His second biggest issue was bad cashew nuts on sri lankan airlines. Shows the level of intellect he possesses.

    President Maithripala Sirisena appointment unconstitutional.

    Please provide him the 19th ammendment Chapter VIII 42 hard copy and request him read infront of media to under stand the people of this country what is written in that.

    He is from a village he can't read and write

    New Democratic Front leader Shalila Munasinghe is a British citizen by birth But, he had never told the Department that he was a foreign national , Maithripala Sirisena contested the last presidential election from his party, which has the ‘swan’s symbol.’ The law does not permit foreign citizenship holders from contesting presidential and parliamentary elections.

    Looks like MS did not understand any thing that he discussed with UN Secretary General over the phone.

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Friday, 02 November 2018 09:32 PM

    I recalled my memory that conversation between Goffy Annan and Sadham Uhasain.

    TONY Friday, 02 November 2018 09:46 PM

    THAT IS ACCRODING TO THE PRESIDENTS INTERPRETATION OF THE LAW
