Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Tuesday said that he was ready and willing to accept the leadership of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).

He said this in response to a question asked by a journalist after a meeting of joint opposition (JO) party leaders which was held at his residence.

Earlier, SLPP Chairman Professor G. L. Peiris said the party will formally request Mr. Rajapaksa to take over the SLPP leadership at an event to mark the second anniversary of the SLPP to be held in November. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Is there a limit to the power hungriness of this man? Of course, he gave political leadership to end the war, and every peace loving person regardless of ethnicity is grateful to him. Thats why he was re-elected with a huge margin. After winning, he could have done wonders for the country, but instead of reconciliation, by addressing the issues as to why we had a war in the first place, he became power hungry by changing constitution, and along with some of his henchman from three wheeler parties, his family started alienating all other ethnicities, looting left to right of public resources, controlling 60-70% of the government budget etc. I will never understand the blind loyalty of his followers, still supporting him through all of this. They need him for their survival. He has all that needs to be there of becoming a dictator.

    This would be the last election if he wins, means he and his family would rule eternally with any elections.

    First learn basic economics before assuming any leadership roles. The whole world was witness to your lack of knowledge to a question any A.L student could answer.

    He can choose to be leader of anything but if his objective is the hot seat, then he and his Joker comrades are living in dreamland.

    We Sri Lankans have no right to stop you and your family to take over the country. Having said that your record shown that you are only interested in looking after your own family. We keep on appointing you lot. Sadly you all ignore us when you are elected. We all remember how your brother Gota used the White vans to abduct innocent people. We also remember the sad end of Lasantha as well. Can you remember all of it.
