Common Opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena today pledged to form a national government comprising all political parties represented in Parliament after he wins the presidential election.

 

Mr. Sirisena who addressed a meeting at the UNP headquarters Sirikotha said this national government would be for a period of 100 days because he expected to complete the implementation of the much-needed reforms by then.

 

He said his struggle was not only to abolish the executive presidency but to save all political parties.

 

“Any person running for a third term as the executive president is bound to destroy all political parties,” Mr. Sirisena said and underscored the fact that even the SLFPers had lost their party because of the personal agendas of a few people and requested all political parties to place their trust in him.


He said he will follow great leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi and the former South African President Nelson Mandela who stepped down from office after his country implemented its political reforms.

 

UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said the new government that would be installed in January would be made up of all political parties and the ministers selected from those parties.

 

He said this government will implement all the essential reforms and added that they could go their separate ways and contest the general elections based on their ideological policies. (YP & SD)

    SL do not require a President who runs for 100 days and thereafter hand over all vested powers to the proposed PM [RW] who had been rejected by the masses almost in 30 occasions.

    The one Hundred Day plan of actions are the right prescription to cure the illnesses the Island (SL) is suffering from.

    This is a funny storey. If you can do constitutional reforms like this why do specific procedures are established in JR constitution. Perhaps if Mahinda wins he can do better by dissolving the house and go for an election so that he do not have to depend on any traitors. If UNP could not corporate with the government to develop the country how do UNP think SLFP will support them. Maithripala does not fully understand what he is doing;

    Excellent speech. After long time listened to speech with statesman qualities.

    Arunasiri Thursday, 27 November 2014 03:39 PM

    Good luck Mr.Sirisena. Once you are president, pls bring all the thugs and robbers to book and makesure there is no one above the law. Like the drug smugglers who were given the pardon to drug smuggle again.

    A real Statesman in the making.

    karu Thursday, 27 November 2014 01:41 PM

    I heard whole speech.I am 58 years old,and I feel that this is the most interesting speech I have heard in my life time. He seems to be so honest,knowledgeable and well -experienced politician. He has a good knowledge in politics,international aspects, and all other areas which most of present politicians do not have. you are talking to bottom of the heart of the people. I wish you all the best and to have all the courage and strengths to bring the country to prosperous future. Also,finally I request to add your name to the list of Nelson Mandela, Mathama Gandhi,Mahatheer Mohamed and Li kwan you by fulfilling your promises while bringing the country to bright future.
