    Without the parliamentary power no executive presidency can survive.

    Great words from a great priest.

    I thought this lot did that in 2010.

    what ever you say it is only a SUBHA AND YASA story. no one will dare to wipe it out when the power is given. take Justice who became the CM of NP. He is no more an independent but holding the proxy for LTTE. all the leaders of UNP when they were in power acted as mad. Ravi K was running Ministry of Trade as his own property.sold Insurgence and CWE for a song.

    while i would agree with sensibility, it would also be sensible for persons of clergy to be engaged in religious activity and not the latter.

    Thank you daily mirror for the presentation. Yes we need a change of governing in Sri Lanka. Sooner the better. Madam Chandrika and Ven.Sobitha Thero should lead this campaign. All the opposition parties have their support for Ven.Sobitha Thero.

    Nayake Theor only can achieve this goal. Obata budu saranai.

    What s the guarantee that minorities are protected once Ven Sobhitha abolishes executive presidency?

    Good Idea if it is feasible

    Yes the constitutional Junk ( Executive Presidency) introduced by Ranil's uncle to be removed forthwith.

    If the common candidate wins but cannot muster the parliamentarians, then he/she will remain as EP for another term.

    I salute Nayaka Thero for the excellent expression of the ideas that brings a good governance to our country. In his speech he clearly explains the wild ass freedom and power that could be easily exercised by the executive presidential system. This system is a curse to people.

    President Tuesday, 15 April 2014 04:57 AM

    We do really need Executive Presidency in Sri Lanka, specially someone like Hitler, Musoline or even like an ancient King Pharaoh of Egypt.
