Minister Wimal Weerawanshe today requested the government to obtain a fresh mandate of the people through a referendum or a snap election. The Minister who is also the leader of the National Freedom of Front was vocal critic of the US led resolution in Geneva and requested all Sri Lankans to boycottproducts originating for the US.

The Minister said that the US and other global super powers had brought the resolution against the country at the UNHRC in order to satisfy LTTE elements. He requested the people to do what they can to protect the country against the US and said that the people should gradually move to using local products.( Yohan Perera)

    Don't lead people in a wrong direction. Leaders are to show right directions, but to do that leaders should be knowledgeable enough to weigh and judge a particular situation.
    It seems like Wimal hasn't understood anything about this situation and still clinging on what he accidentally said and trying rationalize his misspoken words.
    The better thing now you(and your agonist Mervin) can do to our country is to keep SHUT and let people with understanding deal with this situation.

    WW may be thinking his party can get more seats in the parliament if fresh polls are held. Because he has won the hearts and minds of people

    Nodrog Sunday, 25 March 2012 10:39 AM

    What is a referendum or election going to prove other than to divert attention from the fact that we are slowly but surely getting strangled and cornered by the Int'l Community in spite of the 'big-talk' by the GoSL..

    Priya Sunday, 25 March 2012 10:51 AM

    For god's sake, give it a rest!

    The Sri Lankan people are sick and tired of you and Mervyn Silva. The only thing you two ever do for our country is bring shame and humiliation!

    as if the regime will care ...they will turn another story if in case they lose the referendum and call for another election....they are just buying time for the next 3 years to survive so that by that time you and me and all jokers who voted for this government forgets the past and come with a clear mind to vote them back again on the polling day...we are blind in a one eyed mans land, so follow him....

    Sumi Monday, 26 March 2012 06:08 AM

    Is there a race between Wimal & Mervin on who the biggest joker is?

    Lanka Sunday, 25 March 2012 07:08 AM

    This guy is a joke for everyone. He is in side a well and does not know really what is happening rest of the word. The moment he opens his mouth he shows his ignorance. Please keep him isolated so rest of the Sri Lankans wont looks like fools to the res to the world.

    Imran Hussein Sunday, 25 March 2012 07:14 AM

    Loku Aiya Sunday, 25 March 2012 07:21 AM

    Some of the issues like Police powers, Withdrawal of Security Camps, vesting of Land powers to provincial councils will be crucial issues for Sri Lanka's sovereignty! So, it is worthwhile to go for a referandum to clarify these key issues.
