National Movement for a Just Society Convenor Sarath Wijesuriya said yesterday they deeply regretted being part of the blunder of helping to elect Maithripala Sirisena the President and Ranil Wickremesinghe the Prime Minister.

He said this yesterday while participating at the 77th birth anniversary of Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha Thera held at the BMICH.

“Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga told us that Maithripala Sirisena should be selected as the presidential candidate as he was not corrupt, a non-racist, and an experienced and honest man. But the entire country knows that all these have been proved false,” Professor Wijesuriya said.“We accused former president Mahinda Rajapaksa of touring the world at the cost of people’s money. But President Sirisena has proved that he has gone beyond Mr. Rajapaksa in these aspects.”

He said there was a need for a Constitutional Council because Mr Rajapaksa blatantly influenced the Judiciary but President Sirisena insulted it saying it was similar to an abused child after he was unable to appoint the judges he wanted.

“Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s short sighted politics, self conceit, lack of responsibility to the people and insensitivity to public opinion has been the main reason for the failure of good governance,” Prof. Wijesuriya said.

    Not only him, the entire country regrets!

    Many warned of falling from the frying pan to the fire as they knew well the character, and capabilities of these two leaders. The frying pan would have been far more comfortable compared to the fire. Those who didn't know this or didn't believe it when they were told about it and helped to elect these two should take equal responsibility to the mess the country has got into.

    6.2 million people made this mistake in 2015 and helped these two useless fellows to become President and Prime Minister. Let’s get together and kick the UNP , SLFP and pohottuwa rogues out of Parliament, provincial Councils and Pradeshiya Sabina’s.

    There are a lot of educated people in Sri Lanka, why does this man think that he is the one to drive Sri lanka and has so confidence on him??

    we agree with you sir!

    Prof. Wijesuriya i like your satire, "as he was not corrupt, a non-racist, and an experienced and honest man." really speaking you lost your credibility too

    This is what happens when you make unorthodox marriages. Education and politics will never match or mix. You should have done a complete research, rather listening to Chandrika. See the state of Mother Lanka.

    I agree totally with what Mr. Wijesuriya has stated. The biggest ever blunder made by 6.2 million Sri Lankan’s. His comment about both the President and PM are spot on. Like millions of other Sri Lankan’s i am counting every day, hour and minute as to when our country could rid of both these individuals and their stooges. Anyone else would be better. I hope legal action will be taken post their demise to punish them mercilessly for what they have done to our country.

    What is the part he played in appointing Ranil as PM ?
