Common opposition candidate Maithripala today said he would restore civic rights and all military decorations of former Army commander and Democratic Party Leader Sarath Fonseka within hours if he is elected as the Executive President.


“I will restore all rights and military decorations of former army commander within hours of my election,” he said.


Mr. Sirisena gave this assurance at a Democratic Party meeting which was held at Solis Hall this morning. The assurance was given when a member of the Democratic Party requested that Fonseka be given all his rights and decorations once Mr. Sirisena is elected.


The common candidate Sirisena said he and several others of the UPFA were not in favour of all harassments meted out on Mr. Fonseka but had to be silent. (Yohan Perera and Sanath Desmond)

    Common Candidate has to guard against a military take over by MR, and besides this is the right thing to do.

    Sunny Wednesday, 03 December 2014 06:55 PM

    Here you are. Reason to support the common candidate.

    Eng. M.V.R.Perera Thursday, 04 December 2014 07:03 AM

    we would be thankful if the best army commander in the world is promoted as a Field Marshall

    It is not peoples intention of making you as the president of this country.

    Mammal Wednesday, 03 December 2014 07:22 PM

    that might need the use of executive presidential power?

    Dr M.L.Najimudeen Wednesday, 03 December 2014 07:29 PM

    Sarath Fonseka was once described as the best army commander in the world by the Rajapakshe brothers. The same brothers put him in jail and removed all his decorations.I am happy that the opposition is keen to restore all his merits and earnings. Voters can vote for this alone

    How dare you call Maithri a dictator? Did he ever ruled the country?
