Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is one of the few matured political leaders in the Asian region, Leader of the House and Minister Lakshman Kiriella told Parliament after moving the motion of felicitation to pay tribute to Mr Wickremesinghe who marked his 40th anniversary since becoming an MP today.

“Mr. Wickremesinghe is well known around the world as a leader with experience,” Mr Kiriella said.

“He is a leader who never becomes aggressive but one with a vast knowledge,” he added.

Mr Kiriella said the passing of the19th amendment in Parliament was one of the recent political victories while the introduction of oversight committees was another.

“Having entered politics in 1977 he worked as a Deputy Minister, a cabinet minister and finally served as Prime Minister four times,” he said.

Mr Kiriella added that school text books were given to school children for the first time during Mr Wickreemsinghe’s tenure as the Minister of Education. He said the Prime Minister initiated the setting up of university colleges to train teachers. “The National Youth Council was also a brainchild of Mr Wickremesinghe,” he added. (Yohan Perera)

    A world renowned leader for Treasury Fraud

    Greatness of a person can be measured by his deeds not by words.

    Wise Donkey Saturday, 05 August 2017 08:45 PM

    That is why he chose a Singaporean crook to be our Central Bank Manager. What's next?

    sarath Saturday, 05 August 2017 06:33 AM

    True He is a world renowned leader of opposition but not as the leader of the country. How can he be a leader when he himself gave the candidature ship twice thinking that he is not the most suitable person to contest MR. He is a self proclaimed looser in politics.His deeds are exposed now and more to come.

    Sensible Saturday, 05 August 2017 09:05 PM

    He didn't contest MR since he knows our voters are idiots like some people commenting here.

    Now world renowned for protecting rogues. He should also be sent home like RK.

    CitizenD Saturday, 05 August 2017 05:00 PM

    World renounced experienced mature leader is one thing but we must see how much contribution has been made to uplift poor peasants of this country in comparison to the latest leader like R. Premadasa. Retained party leadership at any cost and not won the top position!
