Former Presidential candidate Sarath Fonseka speaking at the rally held at Hyde Park this evening said that the executive presidency would have been abolished if ‘victory was not robbed at the last presidential election’.

“If they didn’t threaten us and intimidate our families and supporters and rob us of our victory the executive Presidency would have been abolished by now,” he said.

Fonseka made these remarks at the rally organized by the United Bikkhu Front held at the Hyde Park.

Fonseka also said that a suitable common candidate for the upcoming presidential election should be groomed in order to face a possible early presidential election.

UNP MP Palitha Range Bandara, Ashoka Abeysinghe, Paitha Thewarapperuma, former Chief Justice Sarath N. Silva and a host of other civil and political leaders participated in the rally. (Yohan Perera & Hafeel Farisz)

    finally some truth comes out of the generral's mouth. Had he won there would be no executive presidency there would be a military dictatorship.

    Firstly, abolishing the presidency, secondly, producing the son in law to the courts and then I go home on retirement.

    Leslie Friday, 19 October 2012 06:24 PM

    Dont waste time writing on this traitor. he is absolutely rubbish and its not worth the print.

    Lobo Friday, 19 October 2012 10:49 AM

    So far we've had a few leaders promising to abolish the executive presidency but they soon forgot the promise the moment they got the taste of the power it wielded. Somehow I can't see SF being any different.

    PUKRAM Friday, 19 October 2012 05:37 AM

    SF is talking nonsense as usual. He will ont get an opportunity to lead the country like he lead the army. The country is not the army. Get lost Sara !

    Appuhamy Friday, 19 October 2012 09:53 PM

    A great hero of our country called Leslie says the very man who planned and won the war against the LTTE is a traitor. Hear Hear

    Riyaz Saturday, 20 October 2012 12:59 AM

    SF talks about the UNPers whom came to his stage ( Braking party rules) as bold men. This means that he welcome people whom violates party disipline. Then how come SF himself a disipline person?

    would have been saved

    the biggest robbers run the show and we are mere spectators like muppets on strings.

    Discredited civil leaders have no place in this country.

    Curious Thursday, 18 October 2012 02:09 PM

    He needs to be careful what he says in public because that is what he got into trouble before.

    Ranjith Silva Friday, 19 October 2012 12:48 PM

    No one talking about development of our Motherland, Sri Lanka.
    All wanted the power to come to high posts.

    AMAR Thursday, 18 October 2012 02:31 PM

    SOUR GRAPES..!!! There were few incidents like any other elections in Srilanka, but those incidents did not effect to the final results of the presidential election.Mr SF, you need to come up with new ideas and sologans if you are to get the public suport...!

    AMAR Thursday, 18 October 2012 03:04 PM

    After MR, we need to give an opportunity to Mr.Wickramasinhe to run this country regardles of the political diferences.He will make a good president or a prime minister. Majority of Sihalese-Buddhist people will forgive him for making LTTE strong. That is the only thing he has done wrong, exept that he is a good administrator.More importantly, he can unite our divided commiunities and move forward. His liberal policies will nicely fit with the universal trend and human right situation. But, he has to play a waiting game very patiently.Which he does at present.

    Brian Pero Thursday, 18 October 2012 03:05 PM

    Everyone should be grateful for you for being the Brilliant Military Strategist you are and giving the remarkable leadership to the war when it needed the most .But at the same time if the world history has taught us anything it is this ,there's a very thin line between limit-less political ambitions and tyranny.

    Impartial Guy Thursday, 18 October 2012 03:16 PM

    Sir,get the right advice from the right people and do right thing and then nothing will go wrong. Keep the friends close and enemies closer. I am sure, I do not have to advice you,you know better and the best.

    Dammika Friday, 19 October 2012 02:46 AM

    ... forgive him for making LTTE strong. ... Excuse me .... who gave financial support openly through Tiran Alles. Don't talk nonsense

    Teshan Friday, 19 October 2012 02:44 AM

    Obama who ? The guy who complains he needs more time for debate. but actually he was taking more time.

    Big Ears Thursday, 18 October 2012 03:34 PM

    I was at this meeting for a short time (due to the bad weather). I found that some speakers just yell at the top of their voice. I am not sure if they are aware there are microphones, amplifiers and speakers (big ones). Is this the Sri Lanka political culture. Better to listen to President Obama speak or even debate.

    totokandy Saturday, 20 October 2012 02:37 PM

    SF said that it's Ali Baba and 40 thieves.Actually the system is based like a pyramid. On the top is the President. If SF want to change, he must have "an army" of functionnaires to replace the pyramid and not only the top of the pyramid. Most of time when the top give an order, the base don't follows or follows as it want, and the top don't know. It's look like that when there is water leaking in your house, you have to repare it as you can. But to destroy the house and build a new one it's a dream because during the time you build the new house, where can you sleep ? So I think must give time to time and wait that it can be better, with one condition that the base of pyramid follows the top order.

    Upul Friday, 19 October 2012 03:03 PM

    I thought you are talking about money that Danuna's mother deposited in a bank safe!

    Naleer Friday, 19 October 2012 03:35 AM

    All rounders are few

    thilak Thursday, 18 October 2012 04:42 PM

    I thought you are wrong , now realise actual situation

    RAZA Friday, 19 October 2012 03:43 AM

    SIR ,YOU WAS RUINED BY POLITICAL GUYS, WHOSE VISION WAS DIFFERENT TO THAT OF YOURS. YOU WAS USED AS A SCAPEGOAT BY SOME POLITICIANS.

    Rata Wesiya Friday, 19 October 2012 03:55 AM

    Dear General SF We believe you are the person to save our country from robbers.Oba Thumata Thruwan sarana saha Yoodha Bala labewa. Go ahead
