President Mahinda Rajapaksa said today there would be no issues even if the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) won the Northern Provincial Council elections and retired Supreme Court Judge C.V. Vigneswaran was appointed Chief Minister.

“There will be no problem if the TNA wins the elections in the Northern Province. If Mr. Vigneswaran becomes Chief Minister, we can have dialogue with him.

The devil is not as black as he is painted to be,” the President told media heads at Temple Trees during a breakfast meeting today.

Commenting on land and police powers, the President said, “The government has full authority over the Lands and Police Powers. This has been clearly mentioned in the Constitution. As such we can talk to each other and resolve any issues that may arise.”

With regard to the nomination of Daya Master for the Northern election being rejected, Minister Dullas Allhapperuma said there were several qualified, educated and former parliamentarians applying for nominations. He said this was why Daya Master’s application for nomination on the SLFP ticket was rejected.

“We think Daya Master will work with the SLFP in the future,” the minister said.

    With police and land powers, we will be able to block new settlements on our ground. Furthermore, we will be able to preserve our traditions and cultures. As federal, you have only limited powers to intervene. So, we are safe.

    If SL does not give land and police powers, we will go for Tamil Eelam and we will explain it to the international community why tamil eelam is essential. Its is up to the SL government to decide.

    Even if TNA wins, what they are going to do? Power is with the central government!

    Sir, we all know very well that you are the ultimate head of this country. The Governor for North will control the Province. You don't care who wins. Sir, please continue to supress Tamils.

    Mr. B. Wijeyasingha Tuesday, 30 July 2013 08:02 PM

    The devil is in the details. That statement is mute because of the single word "if" and not "when". As the saying goes 'There is many a slip from cup to lip"

    Sim Wednesday, 31 July 2013 08:29 AM

    Daya Master not suitable for PC but he is qualified for Parliament (No qualifications needed)

    janak Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:02 AM

    WHEN DAYA MASTER, KP, PILLAYAN N KARUNA CONTEST UNDER UPFA THEY ARE NOT LTTE. IF THEY CONTEST UNDER UNP THEN THEY ARE LTTE

    Ranjith Silva Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:13 AM

    Holding Elections in a War toned ares is a victory for the President. We salute for your courage. Let the people in the area decide their fate, nut as a united nation in one country.

    damien Tuesday, 30 July 2013 09:23 PM

    Mahinda is sudana?
    henchmen are bad?wake up mate

    damien Tuesday, 30 July 2013 09:29 PM

    this is a good opportunity for this man. he can take the southerners for a ride saying there is a threat from LTTE elements to separate the country. that is why TNA has won the election.so he can capitalise on that to win other PCs. this man has no brains to develop this country and has cunningness to rig votes

    len Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:16 AM

    In other words result is fixed already.

    nalaka Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:17 AM

    concidered election defeat already ??

    Thanga Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:18 PM

    No land and police powers will be granted. That means MR is in collision course with India. We will wait and see who wins.

    unchikun Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:24 AM

    This is very weak statement isued by a leader of a democratic counrty.

    Jayantha Jayamanne Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:24 AM

    Well said Sir.... You proved yourself as a Gentleman, really appreciate your comments.... You are OK, but please correct your idiotic corrupted Politicians who are the devils.... this is my request.
