    Constitution and democracy need to be upheld. Please do not destroy the country for your personal politics Mr President

    Constitution clearly mentions HEP as the head of the Cabinet and HEP shall appoint an MP as a Prime minister who he wishes. It is upto the PM he appoints to prove the majority support in the parliament. He took a bold and very difficult step to save our mother Lanka from chaos under this stupid RW and Mangala.

    Drumming up support for his survival was the only thing Ranil for the last few years. So that is why the white guys are not happy with the new situation.

    Now the most important democratic countries, the EU, the UK and the US, have made it clear to Sri Lanka in a noble diplomatic way that a criminal as Prime Minister is unacceptable. In this way, the vast majority of citizens of this country thinks too. This stern warning should be followed in any case, otherwise economic sanctions can be expected.

    like some Muslim countries, Sri Lanka has no democracy and has never existed. It has its own barbaric culture that is shared by all Sri Lankan.
