Won’t allow to abolish executive presidency: NFF

26 April 2018 07:03 pm - 8     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The National Freedom Front (NFF) today said it would never allow the JVP proposal on abolishing the executive presidency to be approved in Parliament as it would lead to a divided country .

“The government headed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has induced the JVP to submit a proposal to abolish the executive presidency so that it can fulfil the agendas of foreign countries. The Prime Minister failed in his attempt to create a federal State because of the lack of support from other political parties. This time, however he is using the JVP as the cat’s paw to fulfil his ambitions,” National Freedom Front (NFF) Organiser Jayantha Samaraweera told a news conference yesterday.

Mr. Samaraweera said the NFF will join other patriotic civil society groups to educate the people on the dangers of this proposal. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Please keep your mouth shut. People voted to abolish the executive presidency not for people to hang on to power.

    Yes we should now know by experience that what we need is more stability not less stability. First create a effing strong nation. Later we can see whether we need to abolish the presidency or this goddamned parliamentary altogether.
