Commenting on the reports that JHU General Secretary Champika Ranawaka was aspiring to become the Executive President and that was why he was against the 19th Amendment, JHU National Organiser Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe said Minister Ranawaka was more suitable for the Presidency than any of the others who were spreading rumours linking the minister and the presidency.

“The JHU will decide when to field him as the President or whether to nominate him. It is a decision for the party to take,” he said today.

He lashed out at Professor Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri, author Gamini Viyangoda and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna for claiming that Minister Ranawaka was aspiring to become the Executive President in 2020 and that was why the JHU was against the 19th Amendment.

    You are right Mr.Warnasinghe , No one should get excited with regard to Hon. Champika Ranawaka aspiring to become the Executive President of Sri Lanka some day. He is the only political leader who has principles

    I did not vote for Sirisena, but i have a good feeling that Mr.Champika would be suitable for next presidential candidate. But Mr. Premadasa will have the edge.

    Any man? Confused, whether u r in a joke.

    Initially while forming a Govt, JHU acted wisely and backed MS but now they too have got into the trap of earning money.

    The constitution provides several criteria that an aspirant to the office of president must fulfill. Those who do so are deemed fit to run for president

    Deen Thursday, 02 April 2015 09:20 AM

    Say any one can dream or has the right to contest for the Presidency

    Sincere Thursday, 02 April 2015 09:25 AM

    Sweet dreams!

    JHU has no vote base to secure a significant power in the administration. They have to either seek the support of MR or Ranil.

    milinda morahela Thursday, 02 April 2015 09:46 AM

    Yes he is more suitable and he should contest.He has a backbone.Ranil staged a constitutional coup.

    Ananda Thursday, 02 April 2015 12:52 PM

    Try, he will loose his deposit too

    redna Thursday, 02 April 2015 07:29 PM

    Ranawaka can contest for the Court Jester!

    laksiri Thursday, 02 April 2015 05:21 AM

    any man is suitable to be president of sri lanka.

    Praba Thursday, 02 April 2015 01:55 PM

    Totaly agree with Warnasinghe. Seems to me that they r planning for another plot ???????

    willowsd Thursday, 02 April 2015 10:06 PM

    Without the support of two major parties UNP/SLFP no one can become a president or Priminister, even some times an ordinary MP

    Parakum Thursday, 02 April 2015 11:09 AM

    Oh yes. He for sure will poll the same votes as A.J.ranasinghe. Both have the same talents ne.

    Champika is the only politician in our parliament, who has shown a long term vision for the counrty. He is genuine, brave and uncorrupted. Also, he is scientific, religious and a good problem solver. You will not get any better than that in one person from our politicians today. The extraordinary value we have in Champika is his engineering background and it is very unwise for us to under value the potential contribution he could make for the country. Hopefully, President MS will do a good job and keep his vision until the end of his tern and groom Champika to be the next President of Sri Lanka. In the meantime, it is up to the TV and news media personnel and the young generation [who has more social media skills and a genuine desire for a better future] to rally around and strengthen Champika enabling him to reconcile with any differences, combat corruption and clean up the country.
